From Nosferatu to Jack Skellington, iconic characters from the silver screen provide a wealth of inspiration when it comes to choosing what to wear this spooky season.

A few wildcards are thrown in too, in the form of cult film heroes- and anti-heroes- such as Carrie, the witches of Hocus Pocus, and Cady’s cringe-inducing zombie bride faux-pas in Mean Girls.
