spookily great coats to keep your little devil warm this halloween

by Camilla Ridley

By now most of us, as parents, have not only accepted but have fully embraced the ritual of donning our children as sinister creatures of the night- accompanying them on their annual pilgrimage round the neighbours in honour of Diabetes, the Greek goddess of sugar.

Of course, no year is without the preliminary arguments- usually about which costume to wear- the makeup that is off limits or on which road we will descend. We have; however, addressed one repeated issue. I refer to the issue of the coat. There is no capitulation on our part- cold weather demands a coat and there is no costume immune to its encasement.

Enter- the matching coat from milliemanu, because every creative Halloween costume has a complimentary coat for the occasion. For as we explain to our children, the costume and the coat have a symbiotic relationship. Living in perfect harmony, they are the yin and the yang, the bangers and mash, quite literally the gin and tonic of vestments. Suffice to say that on the 31st October, one doesn’t leave the house without the other and we make it easy for you with suggested pairings from our new tweed winter children's coat collection and our picks of the most stylish costumes we’ve spotted this year.

the green witch

Witches of the green variety possess wisdom and kindness in equal measure. Respected for their unique and experimental brews, these sorceress are the best at looking into the future. For the girl who loves emeralds, our tweed Orla coat in green with faux fur collar will bewitch all in her path.

the purple witch

The purple witch is known to be more receptive to change. Both eccentric and capricious, she’s also a loyal friend. We think she’ll rock our Orla coat in magenta made of Scottish tweed with faux collar and contrasting liberty print lining.

No party is complete without the entrance of the all loved skeletal zombie bride. She knows how to work the room. Confident and agile, she’s often found throwing shapes on the dance floor.
