Halloween symbols like spider webs, bats, and black cats are not just for October 31st anymore. Halloween inspires fashion works year round. Last year, I showed some of my favorite Halloween-inspired items, like this baby vamp ring I still want. With this story idea in mind, I set out to find Halloween-inspired fashion that I would wear regardless of the season.
The reason I love these pieces is that they subtly reference Halloween without being so obvious. In theory, I would normally shy away from a clutch with a spider, eyeballs on my wallet, or fangs as earrings, but all of these pieces just work. Each designer took a dark, spooky subject and made it really beautiful. I would love to add any of these pieces to my wardrobe.
Here are my 12 favorite Halloween inspired fashion pieces. Which one would you wear?
