Spooky Fashions for Halloween and Beyond

Powered by Geek & Sundry

Halloween may be best known for the costumes, but for some, it’s all about the fashion. Spiderwebs, skeletons, monsters, and witches are all showing up on dresses, leggings, and accessories. While this is certainly the season to celebrate the macabre in your fashion choices, these looks can also be worn year-round. Think of them as just another fun print that can be used as a statement piece in your wardrobe. If The Nightmare Before Christmas taught us anything, it’s that you can celebrate your favorite holiday year round.

Almost every major geek retailer out there has released a special line of Halloween items this year. Even if they’re not new designs, they are all shining a spotlight on their boo-tiful seasonal fashions. Here’s a few select designs from our favorite vendors that you can get your own boney fingers on.

Pinup Girl Clothing

Vintage and va-va voom specialist Pinup Girl Clothing caters to the macabre crowd year round, but they’ve cooked up a few special treats in their Tempting Treats section. Their offerings include a variety of Halloween prints in some of their classic skirt and dress styles like this monster movie pencil skirt and spiderweb dress.

If you’re seeking something a bit subtler in your fashion, there are countless accessories on the market, especially from small sellers on Etsy. Add a bloody pin to a simple black dress and you’ll be sure to get some curious glances. Add some cleaver earrings and your co-workers may start to worry about you a bit. A vampire purse could add a bit more playful charm to the mix and adding a pair of Marceline Dr. Martens will certainly get them laughing.
