The Silver Lace Cape ($33, H&M) will give any outfit you wear it with an immediate romantic touch. The metallic shine and vintage lace is made from recycled fabrics, so you can feel even better about this purchase than you already would.
What's a silver, lace cape without a Silver Lace Mini Dress ($27, H&M)? The mod silhouette with the peplum sleeves gives this dress a sweet '60s vibe, and it, too, is made from recycled fabrics. By completing the look with the Lace Fingerless Gloves ($15, H&M), you'll truly become the goth princess of your dreams.
For a Wednesday Addams feel, the Black Velvet and Lace Sleeve Dress ($33, H&M) boasts The Vampire's Wife signature silhouette. The intricate lace mixed with the heavy fabric creates a super pretty contrast that makes this dress even more interesting to look at.
I'll be honest: I have no idea what I'll wear with the White Frill Collar ($14, H&M) yet, but I want it so badly. It's detachable, so you can spruce up any outfit with this accessory. The embroidery on the corner gives it a 1700s touch that you simply can't resist.
I can't express how much I love velvet; it's like a super soft blanket you can wear all day and still look chic in. The little details above, like the ruffled hem, bow, and buttons on the sleeves, make the Velvet Pussy Bow Dress ($46, H&M) great for everyday wear, as well as all the (socially distanced) festive parties you have on the calendar.
It wouldn't be a complete Vampire's Wife collection if there weren't a dress you could imagine running through your haunted mansion in. For this collab, that dress is definitely the Black Lace Maxi Dress ($66, H&M), with its length, sheer sleeves, and ruffled hem. The only thing missing from this look is a candelabra.
