Wednesday is the first day of October which means it’s time for all things spooky. October is one of my favorite months not just because of Halloween, but because everyone seems to loosen up a bit and the holiday festivities seem to influence their style. I will be the first to admit that I jump for joy when this season comes around because it’s when I feel most at ease flaunting my love of witchy style. Though my closet is filled with striped shirts, skinny jeans, and boots, there’s a big part of me that is madly in love with the witchy woman look. For some people witchy can mean a bit more boho and for others it’s straight up black, braids, velvet, and lace, but whatever inspires that witchy feeling in you, embrace it.
The witchy style I’m going for today is one that’s edgy and dramatic. How do you achieve the look I’m going for here? Intricate braids, delicate lace, and unique jewelry paired with leather pants, a cape style coat, pointy shoes, and black nails. Not all at once but it’s the mixture of ultra feminine but mysterious style with powerful lines, a lot of black, and definitely some attitude. While some might find this look intimidating or odd, I’ve always felt that witchy style is empowering.
What are your thoughts on this style? Do you prefer the more natural, boho witchy look or the sleek, powerful temptress?
