There’s nothing better than playing a little dress up every now and again–and I’m not talking about dressing up for dinner or a night out. With Halloween just around the corner, it’s a great time to play with the darker side of fashion.
Influenced by the bohemian and Gothic movements, these exotic looks are sure to bewitch any audience. Using drama and scale, these outfits mix sheer fabrics and leather and never fall flat–even with the heavy use of the color black. So put away the green makeup, go shopping for some pointy ankle boots and layer on the leather, you witchy woman you.
I’ve been waiting for this pleather pinafore ($35) to arrive for quite sometime. And although a very select group of stores will be receiving it, I absolutely had to share it with you. Paired with a suede fringe vest, pointy-toed patent boots and a statement handbag, this whole outfit is begging you to stay out way past the witching hour.
Fringe definitely lends a hand to this whole look. This sheer sleeved blouse ($27.50) gives an airiness to the structured navy pencil skirt ($25). Use a leather jacket and dip-dyed infinity scarf to complete the look.
Leather accents give you the best of the leather trend without going too far. This leather paneled skirt ($26.50) is structured and best of all it has our favorite accent: pockets! Pair with a lace top, pile on the fringe, add a floral scarf and you’ll have one captivating look.
