Oh, witches. Be they feared, misunderstood, immortal or teenagers, they're almost always the most stylish people in the room. If you need a little Halloween inspiration or just want to add more spell-binding looks to your everyday wardrobe, these ladies are here to help you out. Please note that this is not a competition, just a celebration, seeing as witches have been pitted against each other for far too long.**
Endora from Bewitched
Sure, Samantha was the adorable girl-next-door protagonist, but everyone knew that Endora was the head witch in charge. She kept things lively, never hesitated to read Darren and did it all with a sort of Liz-Taylor-on-Acid vibe. And we would be remiss not to mention that iconic eye shadow. Honorable mention: Uncle Arthur, Tabitha Stevens, basically every witch who isn't Samantha.
Sabrina & Co. from Sabrina the Teenage Witch
This show is basically a masterclass in mid-'90s lewks. Okay, let's start with Sabrina. She had an enviable choker collection, an awesome bedroom in an old victorian and to humanize her, she had a crush on a boy that loved bowling shirts (witches make mistakes, too!). Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda basically dressed like the primetime version of Samantha Jones, so no complaints here. Honorable mention: Salem, he's essentially rocking Audrey Hepburn's Funny Face outfit. Should we find ourselves cursed to spend 100 years as a cat, we could only hope to look this good.
Sarah, Bonnie, Nancy and Rochelle from The Craft
No witchy roundup is complete with out ya girls from The Craft. If you were born between the years of 1980-1988, odds are you got roped into at least one group costume where everyone got to put their black minis to good use. Full of looks that are very on trend this fall (dark lipstick, chokers, scowling) these witches are as cool as they are horrifying. Honorable mention: No one.
Witches of Eastwick
The.hair.in.this.movie. To be fair, you could put parachute pants and a Tweety Bird t-shirt on Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer and it would be a revelation, but these three are delivering the goods in almost every shot. From their normal looks to the height of their magic, they all look equally amazing. Honorable mention: Jack Nicholson
**But I mean come on, I think we all know that if this were a competition it would come down to the girls from The Craft based on aesthetics vs. Endora based on personality (just like every season of RuPaul's Drag Race) but feel free to debate amongst yourselves.
Editor's Note: It would be complete and utter negligence to have let this post slide without one final addition:
Louise Miller from Teen Witch
The bedazzled shoulder pads. The tutu-on-sheath skirt. The ultra long amulet. I'd be a liar if I denied the sorcery that was Louise Miller's most-popular-girl-meets-teenage-witch wardrobe. Honorable mention: Madame Serena's pint-sized yet potent getups.
