Ah, spring. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and all the vampires are sneezing their way back into their caskets (seasonal allergies, poor things). It’s the indecisive, bitchy twin sister to autumn, where days flip between warm and cool, sunny and rainy (but hey, we get fog out of the deal. No complaints there). As we drift ever closer to the heat of summer (unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, in which case we wish you luck with your impending winter), it’s time to start rearranging the wardrobe. What do you need for spring? Dainty dresses. Lacy layers. And a big damned hat.

Blood Sucker Dress

This dress is built for spring: long sleeves but short hem, off-the-shoulder but still body-hugging fit, and an oversized vampire bat graphic that says you’re not feeling subtle today. Layer it over leggings or go gloriously bare-legged. The Rogue and The Wolf//$43

Salem Pushup Bra

This sweet little number will look amazing peeking out of your sweater. And the orchid-y, lilac-y, lavender-y color is so pretty that we don’t care it ruins our all-black lingerie collection. Scarytales Clothing creates pieces in a wide range of sizes, although you’ll have to do some conversions to figure out your size if you’re not familiar with Australian bras. Worth it, in our opinion. Scarytales Clothing//$182

Some witches can work serious magic with blooms. Some of us seem to kill plants just by looking at them. These blackened dangles are perfect for flower-lovers and flower-murderers alike. ArdentHearts//$22

Tainted Love Dress

This lightweight dress is playfully sexy, and there’s enough detailing on the front to look great even if you’ve thrown a cardigan over it. On warm days, the open back lets you feel the breeze. It’s a win-win. Restyle//$66

“Now you have to imagine that she’s incredibly light, like she’s made of air.”
“Is that her whole body, or just her head?”

Sunglasses shield your eyes from sunny skies or the glare off the remaining snow. Channel your nostalgia through this pair from Witch Worldwide and see which of your friends is a The Craft fan. Witch Worldwide//$55

Terrarium Necklace

These ethically sourced, eco-friendly beetle necklaces come in six different species, each encased in glass vials that make us think of Edwardian entomology. Wear one because they’re gorgeous, or as a warning to all the other bugs that come out of hiding in the spring. ChrysalisStudios//$39+

Witch Wide Brim Hat

Oversized black hats have become a goth babe staple, and for good reason: they keep the sun off your face, the rain off your hair, and they help you avoid eye contact with that weirdo on the train. A Lydia Deetz sunhat can be found pretty much anywhere, or snag this Restyle wool number before it disappears. “Sick of your shit” glare not included. Restyle//$37

Black Lace Robe/Evening Coat

Ok, do you NEED a made-to-order, skull-emblazoned, rosary-festooned ankle-length black lace robe/coat that has drapey sleeves and an open front that probably billows as you venture on your morning stroll through a misty cemetery? Well, now that you put it THAT way, yes. Yes, you do. AphrodiziaDesign//$225

Always use protection. April showers bring May flowers… and they’ll totally jack up your mascara. This pagoda umbrella is black, features a hook handle and a cute lil bat logo, and is fully waterproof. It’s available in other colors and patterns, too. DO YOUR WORST, BOOMCLOUDS. HilarysVanity//$46
