What up ghoul-friends, Halloween is fast approaching. But don’t fall for that  sexy-costume-in-a-box, $56 nonsense! It’s early so you have time to plan. If you act now, you might have a chance of pulling off a haute couture costume that is all kinds of Alexander Wang-meets-Rodarte-FW-2016. We’re talkin’ goth’  glamour hunnies! This trend is all the rage, and it can blend seamlessly into any Halloween costume. Step 1: draw out your inner goth (find the black lipstick we all own in the back of the drawer). Step 2: confidently don a monochromatic noire-on-noire ensemble. Step 3: add 1-2 accessories so you can claim you’re a “witch” or “Wednesday Addams.” BAM! You just finished Halloween! Now go drink some cider.

Need more proof? We’d die for Cara Delevingne’s “bat hat” from the Giles show at LFW 2014.

Of course, there’s always the classic, Lydia Deetz.

Just add teeth.

Gotta love a turtleneck held together by a pentacle.

Ninja goth is kind of derelicte and we love it!

This witch is very The Witch

Minimalistic Maleficent. Try to say that 10 times.

We wish we had thought of Punk Ursula.

Wednesday Addams never goes out of style.

Serving Hell-Nun realness!

If leather’s your thing, Halloween is the perfect time to bring your inner dominatrix out.

If you’re a makeup diva, go on and impress us with a full black and white look.

Or, pull from classic films for inspiration, like Drag Race’s Detox did.

This would make the ~perfect~ Vanessa Ives from Penny Dreadful costume!

Or, you could always go as one of the dancers from the Formation World Tour.

We’re sure whatever you wear, you’d look absolutely bewitching!
