What clothing is worn on Halloween?
It’s traditional for people to dress up for Halloween. Whether that’s something spooky, gruesome or cute. Literally, anything goes these days.
Most people will buy a new costume online in cheap polyester, which serves its purpose for a year as it gets thrown out after one use. These costumes tend to look a bit gross and tacky and are often not good for the environment.
However, there is a more sustainable way to do Halloween. If you don’t want to waste your money on cheap tatt that will go in the bin one day after Halloween, invest in some spooky pieces that you can wear on other days of the year that also help you to build multiple frightful Halloween costumes over several years.
What should I wear to Halloween if I don’t want to dress up?
If fancy dress isn’t your thing, but you still want to get in the Halloween spirit, all-black is the perfect option. Wear whatever black clothes you want, and you can make it stylish and fashionable.
Discover an extensive range of black clothing at Luxury-Legs, perfect for Halloween fashion. From black body suits and crop tops to faux leather trousers and leggings, find the perfect Halloween outfit without needing a silly costume.
How to dress in Gothic fashion
If you don’t like fancy dress, you can always embrace your inner goth girl. Gothic fashion gives you plenty of room to play with clothing options without having to dress up in a costume.
There are many avenues to explore within gothic fashion, from steampunk to Victorian goth, which features Victorian-style clothing in blacks and reds, traditional lace, intricate detail, top hats and metallic goggles.
Or you can edge into modern gothic fashions from the 90s and 00s, incorporating ripped clothing, spiked studs, leather, latex or neon colours.
There’s nothing like a pair of black fishnet tights to complete your gothic Halloween look.
Your Faux Leather Era
At Luxury-Legs, we love faux leather. It’s perfect for your autumn/winter capsule wardrobe because it’s a super versatile material. Whether you prefer comfortable faux leather leggings or a streamlined skirt, find all the vegan-friendly fashion you need this season and Halloween at Luxury-Legs.

Ten fabulous Halloween outfits incorporating faux leather
Catwoman is an oldie but a goldie. Never let anyone tell you that you’re copping out if you come dressed to your next Halloween party as Catwoman, or any cat for that matter. You can channel many versions of Catwoman, but Halle Berry is our favourite. Complete your catsuit with faux leather leggings or catsuit for sleek, feline and feminine curves.
2. A witch
Give your standard witch outfit a magical makeover. Instead of a black tulle dress, opt for a pair of black faux leather leggings for a modern and fashionable witch outfit. Or, if you still like the dress idea, browse our faux leather skirts and dresses to switch up the base of your witch outfit.
3. Sandy from Grease
Sandy from Grease is the ultimate faux leather legging costume. Everyone will know who you are at the Halloween party after you don a pair of faux leather leggings, a black crop top, a leather jacket and red lipstick. I’ve got chills!
4. A Skeleton
The skeleton Halloween outfit may require some arts & crafting skills – although it is easy once you have all the bits. All you need is a pair of faux leather leggings, a long-sleeved black top, some white paper, scissors, a black pen and something sticky. Draw a few bones on the white paper with your black pen and cut them out. Once you have a few ribs and two femurs, stick them onto your clothing to transform yourself into a skeleton.
5. Charlie’s Angels
Charlie’s Angels, starring Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Camron Diaz, is an iconic Y2K movie. Get your two other besties to recreate this dynamic trio in 90s-style faux leather trousers.
6. Trinity from The Matrix
Another iconic leather-clad character perfect for Halloween fancy dress is Trinity from The Matrix. You can replicate Trinity’s latex body suit with faux patent leather leggings, a matching top, 90s-style sunglasses and combat boots.
7. Grace Jones
Take inspiration from the style icon, actress and musician Grace Jones. Pair your faux leather leggings with a purple scarf and leather jacket to replicate this iconic 1984 outfit for the “A View to a Kill” promo worn by Grace Jones. Props to you if you recreate this iconic photoshoot pose.
8. A vampire bat
Another classic Halloween costume when you can use your faux leather leggings is a vampire bat. Just pair them with a batwing top or homemade bat wings and ears. Don’t forget the fangs!
A Disney villain legend! Get all the compliments at the Halloween party when you turn up in this standout outfit. All you need is the iconic devil horn headpiece, a cape and a faux leather dress or skirt or give your Maleficent an edge with faux leather leggings.
10. Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy
A list of Halloween outfit ideas isn’t complete without Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy. Her attitude, swagger, style and green skin make her the perfect character for your Halloween costume inspiration, as long as you don’t mind covering yourself in green body paint. Complete your Gamora look with biker faux leather leggings and a tank top.
What did Kendall Jenner wear for Halloween?
Why not take inspiration from the queen of Halloween herself: Kendall Jenner? Over the years, she has sported various Halloween costumes that are perfect to recreate with black faux leather leggings. For example:
Kendall’s Buttercup costume from 2017 is a fantastic idea for a group costume. Grab your other girlfriends to recreate the Powerpuff Girls and replace Kendall’s black denim skirt and fishnet tights with faux leather leggings.
Kendall’s 2018 witch outfit is a classic, but the model makes the costume gorgeous and fashionable. Recreate it with a faux leather dress, sheer black gloves and a feather-trimmed witch’s hat.
Another leather-clad inspiration you have to try is Kendall’s 2020 Pamela Anderson. Perfect this look with a faux leather body suit, fishnet tights, leather over-the-knee boots and a blonde wig to recreate the iconic blonde bombshell biker look.
