Happy Halloween! The circus that surrounds the Christmas countdown will begin bright and early tomorrow morning, so let’s enjoy these last few moments of normalcy – if such a thing even exists on Halloween.

SHOP: Red Leopard Heels, £130 by Carvela Kurt Geiger
Ever since Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey catapulted into our living rooms in 2003 with their critically un-acclaimed MTV show, Newlyweds, I’ve been hooked on reality TV. Seriously, I’ll watch just about anything – as long as there’s some kind of spat that centres around prom, an unexpected baby shower guest, a charity fashion show, spring break in Cabo or the launch of a new shapewear collection. Alongside Newlyweds, which I’ve never stopped loving, personal favourites throughout the years have included Rich Girls, Laguna Beach, The Hills, The Real Housewives of New York (Jill Zarin I love you) and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
SHOP: Draped-collar coat, £550 by Halston Heritage
Raise a hand if you’re sick of the ’90s style references. I’ve just about had it with crop tops, mom jeans and Calvin Klein underwear. In fact, I’m ready for the early 00′s to come back into fashion – I’ll take a J’adore Dior T-shirt over a scrunchie any day of the week. However, there is one ’90s trend I can still appreciate: grunge. Instead of looking like it belongs in a time capsule, the hallmarks of grunge have continued to evolve, keeping the style modern. This season it’s best to channel the look with dark winter florals, cosy parka jackets and subtle touches or hardware detailing.
