Halloween Inspiration Board: Lorde

Twerkin’ like Miley not your style this Halloween? Go the alternative route by channeling your inner teenage witchy goth as Lorde, the rising star on the pop scene. Lorde has got a thing for black mesh body-con dresses, almost black makeup, and the kind of jewelry that’s likely been cleansed by some new agey priestess. Memorize the lyrics to “Royals” or “Tennis Court,” wear your hair in long waves or plaited into a crown braid (as above) following this tutorial, and you’ll be a dead ringer for next year’s big Grammy winner (I predict, anyway). Deets on the items above, after the jump!
