Horror movie heroines


As Halloween approaches, we take a look at the inspirational style of some of our favourite horror movie heroines.

Fairuza Balk in The Craft
When an outcast girl gang begins to dabble in witchcraft, their lives take a terrifying turn. Fairuza Balk’s character, in this 1996 cult classic, lives in a trailer park with her mother - throughout the film she becomes greedy with power and has a wardrobe as fierce as her trickery. Leather jackets, pointed collars, 90's chokers, blood red lipstick and classic kilts create this bad girl look. Combine a leather biker jacket with and Sora Faux Leather Pleat Skirt, accessorise with a pair of our Cashmere Blend 180 Denier Tights in black.   

Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice
In 1988, Tim Burton cast a young Winona Ryder as morose loner Lydia Deetz, in this surreal comedy horror classic. Lydia, an outsider in her own family, befriends and saves the Maitelands, the deceased residents of her home. Ebony hair, a snowy white complexion and layers of heavy jet-black clothing are the staples of Lydia’s gothic style. Channel this look with our Julia Boucle Long Coat, Chay Lace Cropped Shirt and Quin Zip Front Track Sole Boot.

Virginia Madsen in Candyman
In this 1992 spine-tingling horror, Virginia Madsen plays protagonist Helen Lyle, a skeptical student writing a thesis on local myth. When she puts the Candyman myth to the test, the results are nightmarish. The character’s no-nonsense approach is mirrored in her clean, almost masculine wardrobe. The voluminous overcoats, stark shirting and practical knits feel eerily relevant for the upcoming season. Recreate Helen’s style with our Julia Textured Long Coat and a cashmere jumper.
