Non-Scary Halloween Movies You Can Binge On | Clozette


October is synonymous to spookiness. While for others, that means doing a test of courage and daring themselves to watch horror films, you really don’t have to terrify yourself to be in the spirit of the season. It’s no fun when you’re scared out of your wits. So take it easy and binge on these non-scary Halloween movies on your weekend marathons instead. We guarantee that you’ll have a great time and not be scared to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.



Practical Magic



Suckers for romance should definitely watch Practical Magic. In this rom-com fantasy film, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman shine as sisters who come from a family of witches who face close-minded prejudice. The movie revolves around the two as they try to use magic to deal with a family curse where the men they fall in love with are doomed to an untimely death. Though the film seems a bit cheesy and clunky here and there, it still sets a quirky and bizarre mood that’s perfect for this season.


Casper



Halloween is never complete without ghost stories. For scaredy cats, perhaps the tale of a friendly ghost is the best choice. Follow the adventures of Casper as he befriends a human girl named Kat. The 1995 film based on a comic is worth watching, not only because it’s one of the most iconic non-scary Halloween movies of all time, but because it’s a heart-warming film that everyone would enjoy. 



Zombieland



Those unable to take in hair-raising plotlines but can take in a bit of gore will enjoy Zombieland. The zombie comedy revolves around a geeky kid trying to survive the apocalypse. While attempting to find a zombie-free sanctuary, he finds a family — and not to mention, love — in the company of three strangers he met along the way. Watch the film starring Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin, just in time for the sequel coming in theatres this month.



Coco



For a different cultural perspective on the holiday, Disney-Pixar’s Coco is a must-watch. Set during the Mexican Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead, the film follows Miguel, a 12-year-old who accidentally gets trapped in the Land of the Dead. Aside from giving you a glimpse of how Mexicans remember their dearly departed, Coco’s rich visuals also attempt to paint a thoughtful family narrative that tugs at your heart-strings. 



The Rocky Horror Picture Show



Of course, if we’re talking about non-scary Halloween movies, who would neglect to mention The Rocky Horror Picture Show? The 1975 musical horror comedy based on a musical stage production serves as a parody and tribute to sci-fi and horror classics. In this cult-favourite, a young engaged couple has to seek help in a nearby castle owned by a mad scientist after their car breaks down. The world The Rocky Horror Picture Show offers is strange and outlandish, but its campiness and catchy songs are what makes it all the more enjoyable.

While there's no denying that South Korea has become a mecca for skincare and makeup lovers (in just a decade, mind you), the country also has an emerging fashion scene that we should all watch out for. The country offers a distinct flavour of style that's distinguished from the designs seen in New York, Paris, Milan and London. It's a little bit hard to describe, but we'd say it's street style with a dose of colour, chicness and playful elements.

Andersson Bell

 


Emerging brand Andersson Bell is known for producing pieces with minimal, streamlined silhouettes that feature pops of colour. For the exclusive collection with NET-A-PORTER, the brand created a collection of 12 exclusive leather and tweed separates detailed with asymmetrical lines, colours, and unique fitting.


Pushbutton



Loved for their unconventional and unique designs, Pushbutton will be launching 12 RTW styles for NET-A-PORTER, including ladylike dresses and blouses with surprising elements such as the signature built-in bum bag. In addition to that, this Seoul-based streetwear brand will also release a three-piece collab with sneaker label Brandblack. The sneaker designs will be a blend of the two brands' aesthetics so expect some colour pop soles, utilitarian velcro straps and '90s style keyring embellishments.


Le 17 Septembre



Fan of the effortlessly chic look will no doubt love Korean fashion label Le 17 Septembre. All their clothes are designed to be timeless with some added unexpected details. The brand also prides itself in responsible manufacturing and fine craftsmanship. Investment pieces, indeed!


gu_de



Taking cues from the carefree fashion of the 1970s, handbag label gu_de's signature piece is the sophisticated and versatile Milky purse that can go well with various outfits and can be donned at almost any occasion. But for The Korean Collective, gu_de will experiment and take on a new direction for its two new handbag designs. The first is a more ladylike option in the form of gusset framed bags and the other is a daywear shoulder bag finished with slouchy matt leather.



1064 STUDIO



Named after the melting temperature of gold (1064.18˚C), 1064 STUDIO produces architectural and sculpture-like jewellery. This concept allows the wearer to layer the jewellery or wear one as a standalone statement piece. In The Korean Collective, 1064 Studio has created an exclusive 6-piece jewellery collection inspired by Ancient Korean tiles and ceramics. The collection is made in 14k gold-plated brass and features clear and green resin elements.
