Why you should care

Halloween is almost here – that means an excuse to look like your favourite female hero. Here’s how to do it subtly.

We may be subjected to 9 to 5 jobs, but that doesn’t mean we should let the Halloween season pass us by.

Not all of us have Heidi Klum’s budget to get into the Halloween spirit, so here are some easy everyday outfits you can replicate on the daily without looking ghastly.

Easily replicate this business Bradshaw look by pairing your pant suit with a pink shirt and accessories with a stand out piece. This timeless look is an ode to Sex and the City while keeping in check with office dress code.

Truth be told, we’ve all been rooting for Daenerys Targaryen. Here’s your chance to feel like the Queen of Dragons herself. The long dress, boots, and minimalistic accessories look is easy to copy. Just pair any of your maxi dresses with a pair of boots and a silver or gold choker (preferably one with a dragon on it) and you’re ready to go!

For finishing touches, throw in a braid or two for your hair!

We wish we could live a day in the life of fearless gladiator Olivia Pope but here’s a sure-fire way to feel the least bit like a badass problem-solver. Kerry Washington dons work appropriate outfits on the daily, but her added armour is her white coats, making her look like a walking knight. We suggest you get your usual work wear and add on the white coat to make you feel like one of her gladiators.
