American Horror Story: Coven finished a while ago and though the plot was a little on the “oh, dear” side, the characters left much for inspiration freaks like myself. How do you dress like part of the coven, you ask (or not)? Here’s a little guide on how you can achieve that perfect “fabulous spoilt brat” or “Stevie Nicks groupie” look!

Think Kinderwhore without the whore.
She sums up ideas of spooky little Victorian girls in worn dresses.
Things like old white collared blouses, velvet dresses, mary-janes and
white stockings. Think Wednesday Addams but don’t forget the ear muffs
to block out all those nasty thoughts!
Definitely my favourite character in the show. She brings up thoughts of that old-fashioned celebrity opulence with a side of modern day sexuality. This look would call for a fur coat, six inch heels, body-con dress and certainly some inappropriate comebacks.
Zoe wears lots of aspects of current trendy fashion; often a bit grungy or boyish with some borderline western pieces. Throw on a t-shirt and leggings with some western buckled
winklepickers or even a loose maxi-dress with a cardigan. The key to dressing like Zoey is comfort.
The only character to really play with Punk rock aspects is Queenie. She wears leather vests over tribal printed blouses, studs accent a lot of her clothes and can often be found wearing some good old leopard print or camo. While her style is usually quite utilitarian she plays up her hair often, with lovely twists to add some femininity.
Misty’s main aim is to morph into that of which is Stevie Nicks. It’s safe to say, she dressed in a mixture of chiffon dresses, lace, layered bohemian accessories like lots of belts, and that signature fringed shawl to swirl around in to Seven Wonders.
If I’m honest to my myself I’m more of a Zoe (a bit lazy, but I try to put a nice spin to things) or maybe Queenie. Madison is far to high maintenance, Kinderwhore dresses are a huge investment and hard to find which knocks Nan out, and Misty’s layering is purely a thing of dreams for me. If you were in the Coven how would you dress? If you were your own character what would you be like? I’ve been obsessed with telekinesis since I was a young’un watching Matilda but I’m in love with Transmutation.
