What to wear for Halloween

Our calendars are filling up with Halloween club nights, which means we get to don our best dresses and 'costumes' with Goths who appreciate brocade, lace and velvet over commercial gear. We have picked out a few favourites this year to help you add to your collection and 'shop your closet' for some world class designs.

If you are going for witchy elegance, the Zella Purple Gothic Dress features purple taffeta and black mesh with velvet criss-cross ribbon and black roses. From your wardrobe a pair of gloves, cuffs, petticoat or long sleeved top underneath can transform your look.

Opt for gothic glamour with this Adare Haunted House Corset Dress, printed with red feathers, haunted houses, gravestones and skulls.  Put on your favourite black heels and add a gothic hairclip for a classic and simple look.

Unleash your inner vamp girl with this edgy Flocked Black Gothic Victorian Corseted Dress, black lace filigree and black skulls teamed with a high neck collar, ruffled sleeves and adjustable skirt length give this dress some extra voom-ma!

The Black Petal Flocked Gothic Mini Dress is a little mixture of sci-fi and fantasy, so get your game on with this LBD.

If you are a Tim Burton fan, this Alvira Black Satin Gown makes for a great Corspe Bride. The gothic gown has delicate black lace puffed shoulders and a black ruched overskirt detailed with little black roses. The dress is trimmed with black velvet ribbon.  Add a veil and you are set to say 'I do'
