    1. A gorgeous mesh dress you'll instantly want to pair with a pointy hat, tall boots, and your good broom. Plus: It's so stunning, you'll be compelled to wear it basically all October long., Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this for my birthday party this month (July). The dress came on time, fit me perfectly in every area, and the material was fantastic for the price. I found no downsides to this dress other than the mesh is hotter than it looks. Having been born in the summer I’m used to it but it’s definitely toasty! I thought it was a beautiful addition to my closet. Dark but not tacky is my fashion goal LOL. I found it to be a bit itchy, but I have the most sensitive skin of all time. Overall I’d buy this dress again, I loved it and so did everyone else!" —Kelly

    5. A dress with built-in angel wings that screams "business in the front, spooky in the back." Use this as inspiration for an entire Halloween costume, or wear it on its own while going out one night for a truly jaw-dropping look., Amazon

    Promising review: "This dress was absolutely perfect for my Maleficent Halloween costume as I didn't want bulky wings to deal with. I received so many compliments. I will definitely wear this dress again as it's also perfect for just a little black dress. It has built-in pads but I was more comfortable still wearing an adhesive bra with it for added security." —Sara Berg

    6. A ghoulishly delightful Fair Isle sweater every Halloween enthusiast needs in their wardrobe. I mean, has dressing for the season ever looked so dang cozy?!,

    Promising review: "The perfect moody fall sweater doesn't exi... YES IT DOES AND YOU'RE LOOKING AT IT! Y'all, this sweater came as a one size and let me just tell you, it is PERFECTION!

    Promising review: "This is ADORABLE. I read the reviews before ordering so I was actually aware that the sizing was basically men's/unisex sizes. I ordered a small knowing it would run a little large compared to a women's small. I typically wear XS/S but this isn't ridiculously big. So comfy and cute — if you're a huge Hocus Pocus fan, like I am :), I highly recommend this product. I'm actually looking forward to ordering some of the Christmas sweatshirts from this company in the near future!" —Kristy

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $15.38.

    12. A sheer glitter bodysuit that will give you the confidence to cast your most complicated spell.,

    Promising review: "For someone who is 5'1", the fit was great! The sleeves stopped right below my knees and didn’t get in the way. The material itself is stretchy and soft and super sparkly. I got so many compliments!!! As other reviewers have said though, I can’t imagine anyone taller than 5'3" wearing this. Even I almost had a permanent wedgie! I can say that the crotch has buttons so if it was too short, you could probably just unbutton it. All in all, great purchase and GREAT PRICE! I can’t wait to find an occasion to wear this again. I felt like a magical fairy goth all day." —Catherine Glueck

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and three colors).

    Promising review: "These tights are so cute and stylish! The fishnet holes are the perfect size, and the thickness of the net fabric is great. It isn't flimsy, thin, or easily torn. The stripes look so nice on, and they dress up any outfit." —ScarletViolet

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in six patterns).

    15. An adorable bell-sleeved dress every witch in your coven will be jealous of.,

    Promising review: "Love this dress! Used it as a witch's dress for my costume for Halloween. It looked really cute. Not only is it chic and cute, but it is still nice enough I could wear it to a work function or out to dinner. It fit great. Wasn’t too tight or too short. Love this dress! It’s a little thin, but I wore a black tank top under it. Overall, it’s worth the money!" —Emily

    Promising review: "Dress is AMAZING! Loved the overall fit, the material is very comfortable and stretchy. This is a faux wrap but looking at it you would not be able to tell. The neckline is perfect and shows just enough, but not too much. I would highly recommend this dress." —AWS

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in sizes S–L and 14 colors).

    model in skater shape star print velvet dress

    Promising review: "This is a great little black dress! I wanted something comfy that I could dress up or down, and use for Halloween ;). This hit all the marks! It's not tight, which is good for me, but doesn't just hang there. Its a little stretchy so if you wanted it tighter I'd suggest getting one size smaller than usual, but I was right on the money with my size. Machine washable is a plus, and I would recommend it." —Always220

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors).

    Pond Los Angeles

    I've had this bag for a few months now and absolutely love it! I'm not even a cat person, but I thought the ears were so dang cute, I had to have it. It is on the smaller side, so it's perfect for the days you only need to carry your wallet, phone, and keys. The top has a really strong magnetic closure, so you never have to worry about your belongings falling out. The structure of the bag is immaculate, and I can tell this will hold up for years and years to come. And like I mentioned above, I plan to wear it beyond just Halloween time!

    Pond Los Angeles is an Asian- and woman-owned small business that creates bags and clothing perfect for traveling. 

    Get it from Pond Los Angeles for $125 (also available in pink).

    25. A swing dress adorned with the prettiest sequined pumpkins I ever did see. It's a great alternative to a costume if you're attending a Halloween party!

    Unique Vintage

    Promising review: "I love this dress! It is so perfect for Halloween and I can't wait to wear it again next year. It fits true to size, is well made, and I haven't had any issues with losing sequins, etc." —Leandra K.

    Get it from Unique Vintage for $118 (available in sizes S–XL and plus sizes 2X–5X here).

    26. A kraken tentacle ring to add a bit of edge to your usually dainty ring collection.

    octopus shaped ring

    Promising review: "I bought myself this ring on a whim because I love tentacle jewelry, and it was super cheap. I honestly wasn't expecting much, so I was pleasantly surprised when the ring showed up. It's exactly as pictured. It's comfortable to wear and adjustable. I've worn it out twice and gotten compliments both times. And my finger hasn't turned green either, which it instantly does with cheapo metal. I love the way this looks so much I'd just paint it with clear nail polish and wear it anyway!" —Sarah M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49.

    27. Black cat Mary Janes we're paws-itive you'll want to wear with all your favorite plaid skirts.

    Reviewers say that if you have usually wear a half size in shoes, go up to the nearest whole number. If you're already a whole number, you should order your regular size. Also keep in mind that these may stretch out over time, so if they fit a bit snug at first, they will get more comfortable. These are very similar in fit and feel to Doc Martens, so be prepared for a bit of a break-in period!

    Promising review: "Real leather, Mary Jane–style shoe with a great boot-type heel (no slip). I have arthritis in my feet, but these shoes get me through pretty long days and don't contribute to the pain like some shoes do. I find them really comfortable. True to size but they do stretch. I went down two notches on the buckle strap (it is real, not just for looks). Really cute, lots of compliments and conversations started just because of these shoes." —Stephanie Kay

    Get them from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and four colors).

    Now go out and live your best, most spooky life in your spookiest frocks.
