Photograph by Steven Klein, Styled by Edward Enninful.

This Halloween, skip the Ricky’s and the pop-up costume shops and get creative with items currently in your closet. All you need are just a few key accessories, so focus your shopping on investment boots that will last season after season. Victorian boots were seen on the runways of Alexander McQueen, The Row, Saint Laurent, Chloe and more. A pointed toe or lace-up boot can add a little gothic drama to your Halloween costume—and to your fall wardobe, too.
