Screen Style: How Witches Can Inspire Your Wardrobe

The following post was written by Juliet Obodo, who blogs at Fete du Juliet and is part of POPSUGAR Select Fashion.

This Fall seems to be the season of the witch! Well, that is, according to the television lineup. I love it as I've always been a fan of shows that have Witchy Women – Vampire Diaries, Super Natural, and new favorites — American Horror Story: Coven and Witches of East End. The shows' differences not only lie in the story lines but also hemlines.

The wardrobe on American Horror Story: Coven consists mostly of blacks and whites. The simple colors juxtapose the vivid plot and colorful backdrop of New Orleans where the show is set. With a simple color scheme, the wardrobe is still as dark and captivating as its cast of characters. The new witches attend a magic school that makes Harry Potter’s alma mater look like Disneyland! They are preparing for a War of Witches and are appropriately dressed as chic magical soldiers. I do believe they put a spell on me, because this weekend while shopping at H&M, I purchased this dress and sleeveless blouse. I also bought a white hair clip that I turned into a brooch. Hey, they’re not the only ones who know a bit of magic. Read on for more witchy ideas!

Up north and set in a coastal town in Long Island, Witches of East End has a lighter wardrobe but just as dark a concept. There is a human sacrifice within the first few minutes of the first episode! Later on, we see more red on screen via the cast, particularly on Freya, one of the main characters; a witch whose powers come from the heart. She wears a lovely red dress to her engagement party accessorized with a simple gardenia, which later changes color from white to red when she sees Killian, her fiancé’s wayward brother. The plot thickens and heats up!
