It’s time to look amazing, spooky and of course, spec-tacular.
A Quick Little Brief on Halloween
Before we dive into exploring the Halloween costumes and Halloween glasses, let’s take a moment to learn about this exciting occasion at a quick glance. Undoubtedly one of the most favourite annual celebrations, Halloween is the right time to show off your creepy outfits or enjoy Halloween movies while rolling on the sofa. Apart from that, you can enjoy a plethora of traditions such as apple bobbing, pumpkin carving, treat or tricking etc.
However, if we look back at history, there are some religious and historical meanings attached to the event. Tracing its origins to the age-old celebration of Samhain and the Celtic era, Halloween is the day when spirits revisit their adobes. To ward off spirits, individuals don weird costumes and kindle bonfires. It is said that in Samhain, the borderline between the dead and living worlds opens up, thus allowing the ghosts to return to Earth.
In the UK, Halloween is all about having endless fun and feasting on pumpkin pies. Celebrate this event in such a way that the memories stay etched in your mind, forever. And, what can be better than stealing the show by wearing the best outfits and glasses for Halloween? Without any further ado, we will walk you through the ideas.
Halloween Costumes for Men with Glasses
Let’s scheme through the Halloween costumes for glass wearers (men) right away:
Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad
The greatest television drama of all time, Breaking Bad is one of the most loved shows by audiences all over the world. Starting from the wonderful supporting cast, excellent script, humour to science, direction and definitely Walter White, everything about this series is incredible.
An avid glass wearer, Walter White is a popular character to slip into. This Halloween, gather your stetson-style hat, checked button-up shirt, light brown pants, golfer jacket, loafer shoes and a bald cap- you will end up looking exactly like Mr. White. Oh, how can we not mention rectangular glasses?
The BEST movie about wizards and witches, Harry Potter still continues to hail in our hearts. Riding a broom, learning spells and receiving acceptance letters from Hogwarts will always remain a dream, but the urge to look like Daniel (sorry, Harry) is highly possible on Halloween. Bring back the nostalgic days by equipping yourself with a black robe, white button-down shirt, red and gold striped tie, black shoes, black trousers and obviously, round eyeglasses.
The legacy of Harry Potter will last till eternity, so don’t miss out on your chance to be the Harry to your Hermoine Granger and Ron Weasley.
Comic lovers, what can be better than dressing up like Clark Kent? Our very own Superman, this hero sports his glass with top-notch class and sass, inarguably! Achieving his look is as smooth as a cakewalk, all you need is a whippet fedora, black suit, black tie, black shoes and a trendy pair of tortoiseshell glasses. Show off the Superman logo- let it play hide and seek!
‘The Office’ is incomplete without Dwight Schrute, and so is your Halloween plan this year. Cutthroat, geeky, ambitious and a bit clueless, this character is a lot more than an average paper salesman. A beet farmer and the best assistant inside the walls of Dunder Mifflin, this famous character makes the series worth watching repeatedly. Looking like him is super easy- grab your dull-coloured shirt, a dark necktie and a suit, that’s it! As far as glasses are concerned, we have the best aviators glasses for you in store.

She is a brainy girlie who makes sure to stand out among the huge crowd. Costumes that are needed to justify the character’s look typically include- a short and puffy sleeve white shirt, thin frame glasses, a long turquoise tank dress, a pink wide belt, fake teeth, navy sneakers and trouser socks.
