10 Festive Halloween Pieces for Women Who Don't Like To Dress Up

Now that I’m an adult, I don’t really have any interest in dressing up for Halloween. I love dressing my kids up, and spending the month planning and making their costumes, but by the time I’m done with theirs, I have no time, energy or motivation to dress myself up. However, I still like to wear something festive just to celebrate.

So as I looked around the web for something fun and festive (that wasn’t a costume), I found some fun things I thought I’d share.

Click through for 10 festive pieces that are fun for Halloween but not too costume-y!

  • Skeleton Tee 1 of 10

    I kind of love these kinds of skeleton tops. The little heart just makes it a little bit sweeter. 

    Find it at Old Navy for $16.94.

  • Orange Pencil Skirt 2 of 10

    An orange pencil skirt definitely seems like an essential for fall. Pairing it with fall hues like purple, burgandy or dark rich browns will make it a piece you can wear a million more times. But paired with black, it's definitely Halloween material. 

    Find it at JCPenney for $24.99 (on sale!)

  • Black and Orange Striped Tee 3 of 10

    The stripes on this are actually navy, which is perfect because although it has a Halloween feel, you can wear it any time after Halloween and not feel Halloween-ish at all. 

    Find it at Target for $12.00.

  • Wrap Cardigan 4 of 10

    This comfy wrap cardigan is the perfect shade of orange for Halloween, but is toned down enough that you could wear it all year long. 

    Find it at Target for $22.99.

  • Panda Sweatshirt 5 of 10
    Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 4.42.32 PM.png

    This sweatshirt is clearly not meant for Halloween, but I kind of love that it's sort of a costume while still being just an adorable hoodie. I would totally wear this thing all year long! 

    Find it at Asos for $32.02.

  • Skeleton Sweatshirt 6 of 10
    Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 4.43.41 PM.png

    Another fun skeleton top, except that this one is a sweatshirt (which I love), AND it glows in the dark!! 

    Find it at Asos for $53.39.

  • Boo Tee 7 of 10

    A gray dolman top is super easy to wear, and the simple bat graphic makes it festive but not over the top. 

    Find it at Old Navy for $16.94.

  • Orange Maxi 8 of 10
    Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 4.53.44 PM.png

    This bright orange maxi skirt is kind of fabulous, don't you think? The bright color just speaks for itself. 

    Find it at Asos for $32.04.

  • Jack-O-Lantern 9 of 10
    Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 4.50.17 PM.png

    If you're not going for subtle, but also don't want to dress up, this cute graphic tee is perfect. 

    Find it at Target for $10.00!

  • Orange Jeans 10 of 10
    Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 4.52.31 PM.png

    I own a pair of orange jeans and they're so fun to wear during the fall. Paired with a black top, this is a perfect outfit that feels a bit festive, but is still just a normal outfit. 

    Find them at Loft for $54.99.
