Halloween is just around the corner and excitement levels are rising here at OFFICE HQ. It’s definitely one of our favourite holidays, when else are you encouraged to dress as outrageously as possible? Plus it’s always a good excuse to gorge on sweets!
Unsurprisingly, we’re planning our costumes around our shoes; which unlike that plastic witches’ hat or those devil horns, you’ll want to continue wearing long after October 31st …
These leather knee-high boots are exactly what a glamorous witch would wear. Team with stripy tights, a black mini dress and, of course, a pointy hat.
We can trace our love affair with shoes back to Dorothy’s ruby red slippers. Pair these red heels with a blue gingham dress. Tiny dog optional.
Team these gladiator-style sandals with a floaty white dress and gold headband for a perfect Grecian goddess look.
Channel your inner Daisy Buchannan by wearing these heeled brogues with a Great Gatsby-esque flapper dress.
