Finally, finally they are here!!! For years our creative customers have been putting together Halloween costumes using our tops and dresses, providing us with lots of inspiration for making our own Dare Halloween costumes.
This year we did it! You can now:
1. Purchase one of our pre-made Witch or Pirate costume bundles (10% cheaper than buying each item separately!)
2. Create your own costume with any Dare top or dress, and one or more accessories. Use coupon code HALLOWEEN10 to take 10% off any top (dress) + accessory combo!
Below are some of our costume ideas for inspiration!
1. Are you a Good Witch or a Bad Witch? You can be either wearing one of our adorable witch costumes! For example, our Renaissance dress in black paired with a black hat and green & black striped tights makes an awesome Wicked Witch of the West costume!
Paint your face green, draw on a wart, and keep saying “I'll get you, my pretty!” all night long!
2. Purple is the second official color of Halloween after orange. It's also witchy and mysterious. Malficent, anyone?
3. And no, we did not forget the Dare classic - red and burgundy colors! Look how well the witch hats with ribbons match with our corset tops!
4. Or, go for a classic witch color - green! It's the color of Belinda's skin and the cauldron with bubbling potion. This one is with our Anastasia top in Black/Emerald.
5. If you are not sure about striped tights, pick a Renaissance top (or dress) in any color + a black hat combo and add your own accessories and makeup! Plus, you get 10% off each item when you buy the combo vs. buying them separately. Here it is with Renaissance top in Phoenix:
6. Best part - you can later wear the dress any time throughout the year. Afterall, you are a witch all-year-round, not just on Halloween!
Would you rather captain your own ship than mix potions and fly a broom? We have many sexy pirate costumes for you too!
7. Heather Gapp, one of 2016 Halloween Costume Contest winners put together her pirate outfit with our Bolero top in Red Queen, her own hat and accessories. We love what she did with her makeup, too!
8. Red tights or white tights look equally good on pirate wenches, it's a matter of personal preference! Here is our Treasure top in Black with white & black striped tights:
9.And here is Bolero top with red & black tights:
10. If you like being creative and making your own costumes, go ahead and use coupon code HALLOWEEN10 to combine ANY Dare top or dress with ANY one or more accessories, and take 10% OFF your entire order! Coupon applies to all the accessories, including jewelry and fingerless gloves. Here is a good example from Mademoiselle Meli: she combined our Renaissance top in Black, a witch hat, and black & white striped tights!
Substitute the jewelry she's wearing with our crescent moon and pentagram necklace or a gothic lace choker:
11. Our tops and dresses make a great base for MANY costumes - not just witch or pirate. Queen, vampire, zombie, fortune teller, woodland fairy, steampunk captain, a villain - the possibilities are endless!
We hope you are feeling inspired! If you do make a costume with a Dare top or dress, you can enter our annual Halloween Costume Photo Contest for a chance to win a $500 Dare Fashion Spree!
Your resident Dare Witch Natalia is wearing Victoria top in Blackberry Brocade (sold out, but lots of other colors in stock) and wishes you a fun and spooky Halloween!
I always design Dare Fashion with versatility in mind. One day, I hope to create the perfect garment for traveling - one you can throw in your suitcase and be ready for every single occasion. Until then, you can still use every Dare top and dress to create a multitude of Gothic, Victorian, Renaissance and Pinup-inspired outfits. Here are just a few ideas to get you started!
In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I would share some of my favorite lessons I have learned from my mother!
Thank you everyone who sent us tips on being green during our St.Patrick’s Day Campaign! At Dare Fashion we take the health of Mother Earth seriously and are committed to green and sustainable practices. To know that our customers share the same values not only brightens our day, but gives us the courage to move forward with our eco-sustainable initiatives. Thank you again, Dare fashionistas! ❤️
This year, many of your tips were about fun activities and neat products that can help save the Earth. We split them up into five categories: Garden and Compost, Shopping Locally, Crafts and Re-Use, For the Home, and Out and About.
Relax. Take a deep breath. If you don’t like the way it fits, you can return it… no questions asked. It’s important to us that you LOVE the way Dare Fashion makes you feel about yourself!
Among the images for each product listing is a style-specific size chart. For our tops and dresses, you can get your Dare size with ONLY ONE measurement of your bust!
Please use these size charts as a guideline. Our fashion is made to these specifications, but due to variations in the stretchiness of the fabric and how it is sewn, there may be some slight deviations from this chart. But please rest assured, all of our styles are designed to fit a range of body types, with features such as stretch fabrics, corset lace-ups, and spaghetti ties in the back to customize the fit.
And did we mention... if it doesn’t fit, you can return it, no questions asked! So buy with confidence. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!
