How to: Sustainable Halloween Outfits



Sustainable Halloween Outfits




For an effortless Halloween look, pair a black mini dress with a simple white collared shirt and plaited hair for the perfect Wednesday Addams outfit. We recommend our Carrie blouse and Julia metallic dress to add more edge to the look. 





Channel your inner Barbie girl, using our Hannah crop top and Phoebe skirt, paired with your favourite heels for a fun. playful Halloween look. Or pair the Phoebe skirt with our Forest vest, heels and pin straight hair to replicate the infamous Regina George.



Combine with your favourite black jeans or mini skirt, heels and some DIY bat ears, with our Wilma flare sleeve top for a simple yet effective Halloween bat.



Save yourself time and money by pulling items from your wardrobe to create this cute scarecrow costume for Halloween. Our Alison pinafore dress is the perfect foundation for this look just add a plaid shirt, ankle boots and a little face paint to complete.





If you're looking to replicate your favourite 70's/80's pop culture icons look no further than our Faith wide leg trousers to complete your look. Pair with a fitted tank top, like our Lisa May (pictured above) for a sleek silhouette. Add some platform heels, curl your hair and you're ready to party.



From the Corpse Bride to the Bride of Frankenstein, it's a classic costume that won't fail this Halloween. Coupled with a pair of stilettos and a veil headband our Alicia dress is the perfect item for this look and is totally reusable for any event all year round. 





Create a classic cat themed look with our Kate halter crop top and Roxy trousers. These items can be reworn throughout the entire year and transformed into many Halloween costumes time and time again. Give this outfit a sexy silhouette by adding some black strappy heels and cute cat ears.



This dress ticks all the boxes, an effortless feminine style with short sleeves. Our Rachelle mini dress can be the foundation to many Halloween outfits this season. Matched with a pair of heels or boots, a stethoscope and a DIY nurse hat, and you can take this dress from a day day staple to a sultry nurse this Halloween. Alternatively, you could pair this classic piece with some pom poms, trainers and a high ponytail for a cheerleader style costume.

Kiera Court - In questions




Kiera Court


Meet Kiera Court, Singer Songwriter & self-professed dog lover, as she tells us about her collaboration with Madia & Matilda

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? 

I'm a musician and songwriter based in London. In my spare time I like to wear nice suits, drink coffee and am actually have the cool capacity to cut my own fringe. With scissors. I could probably even cut it with pliers if they were to hand. I also really like dogs, but who doesn't?

Kiera is wearing the  Amelia - Dress



How long have you been Singing  for? 

I've been singing for a while - I don't have an exact date, but all I know is that I love it. I just love sounds.

Is there anything specific that inspired your Madia & Matilda photoshoot?

Mainly my dog. He's my rock and very photogenic - I wouldn't be surprised if he got scouted for Premier Pooch Models (does this exist?) or something. Madia & Matilda feels kind of homely - solid and sustainable like a friend you can always rely on and true to its roots. I didn't want to go too over the top with the shoot and portray the sense of honesty I feel Madia & Matilda conveys in the photos. 




Which is your favourite Madia & Matilda piece of our Summer 18 collection? 

I love the Henny cotton skirt. It's so light and breezy. I could gallop around London in that, hoping on and off the tube without have to groan at the tight constraint of jeans, or unbuttoning of a trouser. It's very classy and would look great in the day with a crisp shirt, blouse or in the evening with a cami top.




Beauty secrets... 

My hair is so big because it is FULL of secrets. 

Seriously though, I don't I have any specific routine as such at the moment. All I do is make sure I'm clean and well hydrated (like a plant). I try to drink a lot of water. A decent amount of sleep is essential too. I think the key to looking beautiful though is feeling it - a warm energy transforms a face and radiates around you. Everyone's perception of beauty is different and remembering that will get you far.

I don't wear a lot of make-up, and when I do, it varies from either dark eyes or bold lips. One or the other. Like boobs or bum.


 Kiera wears Jenna Cropped Trouser




If you can take us to your hometown for a day, where will you take us to? 

I was born in Chelmsford, Essex. If I were to take you there, we would most certainly not go out at night unless it were to the Bassment (get it) bar for some blues, jazz and just genuine good music. Hylands House would potentially be on the cards. That's where I walk my dog sometimes, and my dog comes first. We'd have to hit up A canteen in town though as they do gorgeous brunches.
