Halloween in Blackula

Black for halloween

With me being Cameroonian, there are celebrations I am not used to such as Halloween. I’m still trying to understand why people have to hang out down the streets, wearing scary costumes, which really do freak me out….

For this year celebration of Halloween, I hopped on the trend with fashion and I was in a mood for black…The color black is usually known to be elegant and easy to wear, so,  even though it is not my favorite one, I decided to build on a black color tone to create my Halloween costume. I came up with a stylish outfit version of  Dracula, that I named Blackula.

Blackula Outfit

This military style trench coat is a mix of cotton and polyester with the red satin on the reverse that adds a fresh element to the outerwear option.Underneath,I layered  a cropped tank with an oversize off shoulder cotton jumper.Paired with a Soft-touch scuba high waist skirt.Then for the shoes,I opted for a studded straps details and zipped ankle boots.

The best part is I could compose with a moderate budget and create the blackula outfit with items available on the high street:


  • Trench coat:Mark&Spencer
  •  Jumper:Vintage
  • Cropped tank & tights: Topshop
  • Skirt: Asos (on sale here)

I would love to know about your Halloween fashion outfits so please do not hesitate to send me pictures and describe what inspired you. Please share your views with me in the comment section below.

P.S. A great alternative to this coat will a biker jacket (like here).Or if the skirt is not for you,try a pair of distress skinny jeans

fresh outerwear option
