How to Dress Like Your Fave Horror Heroines Every Day
Dudes like Freddy Kruger and Frankenstein might be the first things to come to mind when you think Halloween icons, but once you dig deeper you’ll realize that there are plenty of bad bitches (or bad witches, should we say?).
You could dress up as your fave Halloween heroine on the 31st, or you could take things to the next level and incorporate some satanic styles into your everyday looks. After all, black is always in style.
1.Wednesday Addams, The Addams Family (1964-66)
Wednesday is way ahead of her time with her long braids, all black ensemble paired with a white collar, and obsession with death. She is the six year old we all wish we could have been. Raising spiders, cutting off dolls heads, beating the shit out of anyone– she’s basically the American Dream. This Alice and Olivia Dress is perfect for the Wednesday Addams look.
2. Sarah Sanderson, Hocus Pocus (1993)
Sarah may not be the smartest of the Sanderson sisters, but she has the power to put a spell on any man she wants. She also looks amazing in her red corseted dress (pair this bodysuit with this maxi skirt for the perfect look), dark lips (get the look with Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Scarlet Red), and perfectly brushed up eyebrows (we recommend the Benefit Brow Kit for the best brows).
3. Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (1988)
Who doesn’t want to be a witch? Not to mention that Elvira has everyone in the neighborhood furious with her sex appeal. After being left with her Great-Aunt’s mansion, a poodle, and magic book, she has everything a girl could ever ask for. Get Elvira’s same sex appeal in this ASOS Wrap Dress.
4. Lydia Deetz, Beetlejuice (1988)
Lydia may seem a bit odd, but she just DGAF and her attire in Beetlejuice is seriously cute. I think the best part is that we can all relate to Lydia’s angsty/outcast personality at some point in our lives. And the joke’s on all the haters because her short bangs and school girl outfit is a look that we all wish we could pull off. Try it out with this Boyfriend Shirt, Cardigan, and Skirt.
5. Frigga, Thriller: A Cruel Picture (1974)
This is one girl you don’t want to fuck with. Frigga’s been to hell and back. After being sexually assaulted as a young girl she’s left mute, so already we feel bad for the poor gal.
Then, she accepts a ride from a stranger who drugs her and forces her into prostitution where he’s her pimp. It gets worse, she’s stabbed in the eye by one of the clients for not cooperating. Thank God this movie ends with Frigga building up the ability to get revenge on those mofos, all while looking like a badass.

6. Rosemary Woodhouse, Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
Nobody looks this good when they go to bed, not to mention Rosemary has the spawn of Satan growing inside of her. She’s tricked into getting pregnant with the devil’s offspring and she still fights for that baby – talk about a mother’s bond. Look as chic as Rosemary in this Lace-Trim Gown.
