Yesterday, I chatted all about my love for American Horror Story Coven and its epic style (read it all on Virgin Radio or Here) which airs every Wednesday on FX. And, I love Thursday almost as much as Wednesday, because I wake up and see that American Horror Story Coven is ready for download from iTunes! This show is definitely my current fave.
So, today I am taking you through my favourite accessories to get into this fashion and style with "witch" (get it) I am utterly obsessed.
Besides a great black dress and darker than usual makeup, any glamour-witch needs fabulous accessories. How do I know this? Well, it all started with Myrtle's wicked red gloves that positively stole the show in episode 5.
Her amazing handwear was done by Gaspar Gloves, a company out of LA and made me realize that gorgeous gloves are a must.
This is the perfect place for added wittiness and I adore this metallic accented pair from DVF.
And, if you are going to do gloves (which I highly recommend), long, leather and Lanvin definitely says, "I can levitate things with my mind."
Next stylish witch-must-have is a signature bag...otherwise how are you supposed to carry around eye of newt?
Check out this purse that comes complete with spiked shoulder cover from Lya Lya:
I also think this Ouija board clutch from www.shopnastygal.com is utterly adorable.
Next up is witch-inspired jewellery and I think a Dean Harris crystal amulet is an impeccable piece.
For the man behind the witch, grab these Charlotte Olympia spiderweb cufflinks.
Jeffrey Campbell has a bunch of fabulous footwear that is stylish and dark. These spiked platforms are mind-bendingly appropriate.
And, these knee-high lace-ups add a ton of dark edge...a witch wouldn't have to watch her back in these.
Finally, on the show, hats have cropped up a bunch of times. We aren't talking pointy hats, Halloween-style. Nooooooooo. We are talking completely style-driven head-toppers in (obviously) black.
The update on the witch hat is any shape except pointy really, like this wool one from H&M.
A bigger statement can be made with this headwear from Eric Javits.
American Horror Story Coven is sometimes pretty scary, but has proven to be always stylish, giving the term witch a whole new fashionable association. So, while I probably won't get my hands on Myrtle's gloves, I am definitely channelling my inner Coven girl.
I may not be a witch, but at least I can dress like one.
