You may think that once you reach adolescence your trick-or-treating days are over, but this doesn't have to be the case. To relive your childhood, take your kids out (or borrow your friends' or relatives' offspring) and take a stylish Halloween themed bag with you to carry their candy around in. The joy in their little faces will be so worth walking around your neighborhood at night, possibly dressed in an embarrassing costume. Plus, they may even let you share their candy stash!
On the other hand, if you want your Halloween to be child-free, you're probably still going to need an awesome handbag to match your costume. Luckily, there are a ton of creepy cool bags out there that would be fitting for a frightening outfit. In the past we have seen Jun Takahashi's Brain Bag and Fendi's collection of monster inspired bags. A couple of years ago, designer bag fans took the Halloween handbag concept quite literally and dressed as Chanel handbags for Halloween.
Celebs are getting in on the Halloween handbag game too. Among the best dressed would have to be Katy Perry as a Cheeto with a matching Cheetos packet handbag and Lily Allen as an alien with a matching green Chanel handbag.
So finish off your costume with a creepy Halloween themed handbag — it's all in the details, after all!
