Vamp up your wardrobe with looks inspired by The Originals

The new Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals, tells the story of the first family of vampires that started it all. Get ready for some background drama as you fly back in time with the new CW series, premiering this Thursday, Oct. 3, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Although you probably won’t wear the Renaissance-esque costumes featured in the show, you can definitely draw inspo from the stars. From gothic basics like black, burgundy, leather and layers, to classroom-ready cardigans and belted pencil skirts, these CW stars cover all the bases.

    Burgundy and Leather

    Keep the burgundy and black combo, but reverse the order. This look is equal part cutes and punk with a faux leather top that is both girly and fierce.

    Heather Grey and Army Green

    We heart the contrasting faux leather sleeves on this army green jacket. The basic grey maxi dress is its perfect pair.

    Prints and Basics

    This vampire’s style is campus-chic. The blouse’s fun horse print makes the professional pencil skirt a little less serious. And burgundy is the perfect color for fall.
