The season of spooky fashion (aka Halloween) will be here in the blink of an eye. And to be honest, it's never too early to start prepping your costume, which we've actually already started to do for you. We've spotlighted some great It girl–approved costumes, found modest dress-up ideas perfect for the office, and even looked to the internet for some meme-inspired costumes that'll make everyone LOL (for real!).

We recognize, though, that costumes might not be everyone's cup of tea. But that doesn't mean you can't be festive in some other way: Cool makeup is one option for adding a bit of spook to your routine without having to take a major sartorial plunge, as is painting your nails with one of the below Halloween nail colors. Think: a blood red, slime green, and classic orange, plus a few more that can look just as spine-chilling as a skeleton costume. All of these are a low-commitment way to celebrate October 31.

Ahead, see seven Halloween-appropriate polishes we'll be swiping on our nails when we're just not in the mood to piece together a costume.

You can't go wrong with red nail polish. It's classic, but also spooky, especially when paired with an all-black look. Vampire vibes, anyone?

Black nail polishes ooze grunge vibes, which is why it's perfect for the spooky season—but best of it, it pairs well with everything.

Slime green is still reigning supreme in the fashion and beauty worlds, and that's exactly why you should consider sporting the hue on your nails come Halloween. Plus, it's perfect for a Frankenstein-inspired nail design.

Sorry to state the obvious, but orange nail polish is about as essential to Halloween (and fall) as candy corn. 

Royal purple is elegant, but when paired with a lacey black dress or a slime-green top, it becomes a tad bit more terrifying (in the best way possible, of course).

Blue polish is dark and sinister, but not quite as mysterious as black. It also pairs well with everything.

When in doubt, metallic it out. The shiny lacquer is great for a disco-inspired costume (or maybe a space-themed one). 

Next up, 10 fall nail trends these pros are predicting will blow up in two months.

Clearly, Who What Wear editors love skinny jeans as much as the next person. We've broken down the best It girl–approved ways to wear them, the best brands to buy skinny jeans from, and how to wear them like celebrities. As ubiquitous as they are, however, they are far from the only denim option you need. As Nicole Kidman just proved, a sleek pair of wide-leg jeans are an absolute wardrobe essential—and might even convince you to hold off on your beloved skinny jeans that can feel restrictive on...

Kate Middleton's look for her latest public appearance was decidedly more, well, nautical than what we're used to seeing her wear. But as we recently reported, she has a new stylist (and former British Vogue editor) that's helping to craft her looks as of late, and she's keeping us on our toes. The nautical-inspired look is one that instantly gave us visions of chic Parisian girls. Sure, Breton stripes and navy, red, and white may be a bit of a French-girl cliché, but honestly, sometimes style c...
