Halloween is right around the corner so it’s time to start thinking about all things spooky and especially your outfit. Are you a lover of vintage style dresses? Well here are some Halloween dress ideas with a vintage/retro twist.

Now as you know, Halloween is all about creating a look. And while creating that perfect ensemble to match your pumpkin accessory is absolutely amazing, there are times when going to all that effort and expense is just not an option. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t look great as you strut your stuff at that Halloween do you’re going to.

So whether you want to channel Wednesday Adams or you’re more after a sexy black widow look, here’s a few retro style dresses that are sure to fit the bill.

Let’s start with the most bewitching one of all, the vintage inspired Doris dress.

Doris Lace Shirt Swing Dress

But personally, we think it just oozes some serious Wednesday Adams vibes, and let’s face it, she WAS a baby witch in the making. Best of all though, once Halloween is over, the Doris dress will come in handy long after as a gorgeous retro black dress.
