Dark Shadows- inspired style

Set in the '70s, the Dark Shadow's wardrobe took us all back to a much groovier time. Before you get your hands on a DVD of Dark Shadows, now in stores, SheKnows is here to help you steal the looks of these groovy characters from the past and make them modern.

Elizabeth Collins Stoddard

Matriarch Elizabeth (Michelle Pfeiffer) is the driving force of the family, and not even her evil rival Angelique can stand in her way. Feminine silhouettes and gothic tones come together in Elizabeth’s style, and it isn’t too hard to copy either.

Don’t be spooked by dark, old-fashioned fabrics. Take velvet out of the Dark Ages by wearing it in a modern manner. This American Apparel velvet dress ($44) does the trick.

Cover up

Elizabeth is always striking but modest with pieces that have sheer overlay in all the right places. Stick to darker hues and vintage-style dresses like this swing dress ($148) at Anthropologie. This mesh panel dress from Love Culture ($23) is a little sexier, but it has classically black lace — an Elizabeth must — and sheer mesh down the arms to tone it down a little.

The dark purple is a beautiful color, and I think it would really make a statement this winter and fall season. I love when movies provide inspiration for fashion - great choice with this one!
