  1. Style Scout: A Black and White Halloween

    Orange and black not your thing? Embrace a monochrome palette for Halloween and make a stylishly spooky statement, inspired by our favourite looks in fashion, design and interiors. Peggy Moffitt.

    With Halloween on Saturday night, we’ve had a little fun pulling together our own style interpretation of a Halloween theme: black and white.

    The monochrome look has trended across fashion, design and interiors this year, from black and white children’s bedrooms to black and white ceramics, artworks and even kitchen design.

    Here, our favourite black and white looks – from the ’60s to now – to inspire you for your Halloween style this year – and there’s not a pumpkin or candy corn in sight.
