Spooky season is upon us, and dressing up to go out IRL is back. If you’re over wearing devil horns, why not take your style cues from some chic on-screen horror heroines?

Myriad sophisticated outfit options are available to order from the comfort of your sofa. Susie Cave’s Duchess of Cambridge-approved label The Vampire’s Wife is a fashionable first port of call for Halloween (just as the brand’s name suggests); Morticia Addams would feel right at home in the balloon-sleeve dress. Simply add a dramatic sweep of lipstick and a blood-red mani to really look the part.

or a more unexpected option, repurpose your favourite prairie dress and summery raffia accessories to emulate Sissy Spacek in Prime Cut, or impress your fellow revellers – not to mention your Instagram following – with minty fresh suiting à la Tippi Hedren in The Birds. Maybe Naomie Harris in 28 Days Later is more up your street.

Here, seven stylish scary movie protagonists to inspire your costume this Halloween. Bring on the spookiness…

Morticia Addams, The Addams Family (1991)


Clarice Starling, The Silence of the Lambs (1991)


Selena, 28 Days Later (2002)
