If you ever listened to scary stories as a kid, you’ll know that the “witching hour” (or midnight) is the time when all things spooky and supernatural supposedly appear. But don’t invest in a night-light or duck under the covers just yet because it also seems like the time that darkly dressed Fashionistas come out to play!
Granted, I did find this Fashionista during the day, but her witch-inspired outfit was definitely Halloween chic. Looking back to when I was younger, the general consensus around people who wore black, mesh fabrics and symbolic jewelry were considered “goths”, but elements of gothic fashion are now making their way into artsy, indie and hipster fashion.
I love that while this Fashionista’s outfit is daring and out there (wearing head to toe black is a fashion statement in itself!), she still incorporated on-trend elements in her look. For example, a mini cross-body bags like hers are set to be huge as the weather begins to warm up for spring. Crystal jewelry has also been huge thanks to festival season and I love that this Fashionista’s rings add a pop of colour to her otherwise all-black outfit. And of course, what pair of shoes could be more perfect for a witchy look than creepers or sandal platforms? This Fashionista’s plastic pair makes me think of the jelly sandals’ badass older sister.
If you’re loving this Fashionista’s witchy look, take a leaf out of her spell book and try accessories like quirky reflective sunglasses and pendant necklaces for a little bit of witchy-ness. For Fashionista’s who want to channel the style vibes a bit more, kick the boogie man out of your closet so you have room to add a black lace dress with long sleeves, leather pants and tops made of sheer black fabric. It takes a lot of courage to wear a sheer panel dress like this Fashionista (Katy Perry wore one just like it in her purple hair days), so big props to her. Then, just add a talking black cat to keep you company and you’ll be ready to charm the hearts of anyone you meet in your magical outfit!
