A Casual Option for Halloween: skull cutout top

I was trying to think of some sort of Fangirl Fashion that might work for Halloween — as it’s coming up next week… but decided to go a slightly different route. Rather than something from fandom, I wanted to put together something that you could wear for Halloween that wasn’t really costume-y, but still would look good.

There are A LOT of DIY tutorials out there on the googles if you’d like to learn how to make this top. I sort of wish I had a plain shirt or sweater big enough so I could do this myself. I’ve also seen some cool ones that look like ribcages as well.

For this, I know I’m on some sort of floral kick, but really… I like the juxtaposition of the floral with the giant skull. For the skirt, a nice flowy one will do. I paired the skirt with a clutch on a thin chain and simple black flats. And with the other, I might be committing another fashion sin, but leggings as pants. If the top is long enough, it works. The purse is a slightly adorned not-quite hobo style, and I added in black combat boots… but I’m not sure I’m sold on those for this outfit yet.

What’s would your casual Halloween outfit look like?
