I am not a fan of scary things: I don’t watch horror movies and I definitely keep away from haunted trails (also because I punched a clown in the face one time…so I guess I technically wasn’t allowed back).
But my photographer, an American-Horror-Story-addict, wanted to do a photo shoot with American Horror Story inspired fashion. After listening to the soundtrack (which creeped me out so much I literally wanted to cry) I noticed that the happier and the more child-like songs, like carnival songs, had a creepier effect.
So that’s where I got my inspiration; by combining baby-doll like dresses with some darker accessories, I got the creepiness that my photographer wanted. Here’s the final effect!
Heres how to get the look!
1. Buy a fit and flare dress with a baby doll look. I know forever21 has a lot. Check this one out for a lacey dress.
2. Layer a polo or collared shirt underneath for a more baby doll look. If you don’t have one of those, try for a Peter Pan dress like this one.
3. Wear dark boots instead of flats. My blood-red boots gives the whole outfit a darker tone.
Et voila! An outfit inspired by American Horror Story. Creeped out much?
