Maybe you practice magic in real life, simply love the look and feel of mystical and gothic jewelry, or dress like it's Halloween 24/7/365. Regardless, witchy accessories and creepy necklaces are a gorgeous, darkly romantic way to make a sartorial statement and can add such a powerful pop to your OOTD. There are lots of chokers, amulets, bracelets, rings, and handbags available that factor a combination of imagery, symbolism, and subtle lore into somewhat chilling but always stunning accessories. Witchy pieces are a fun and easy way to punch up a simple ensemble and to display a little edge.
There is no shortage of brands that camp out outside of the mainstream and that are creating accessories for those of you who like to dance with the darker side of life when it comes to dressing up your ensemble. Some brands, such as Bête Noire, are fully immersed and craft mostly witchy designs. Others incorporate creepy pieces into their overall repertoire, like up 'n coming and affordable Los Angeles brand Dalmata. There are apparel brands that also offer accessories, like Pittsburgh's vegan and urban basics-driven Helvak.
Below are 13 kinda creepy statement pieces that any witchy girl will love. Some are subtle while others are more overtly occult. Consider these items to be accessories-as-armor.

12. Rhoda Cuff By Helvak

You can also peruse Etsy for custom witchy pieces if it's a further authentic vibe you seek. You may have to wait a little bit longer for your accessories to arrive but they will be so worth it since they'll be distinct as DNA. Ultimately, creepy and witchy necklaces and accessories are always a do — whether it's Halloween or not.
