Modern Day Witch Fashion & How to WEAR Your Magick!
While they say witches don’t have a certain “look”, they are forgetting one important thing – the way you dress can be a powerful form of magick! Just as witches use candles and tools to project intentions into the universe, clothing and jewelry can also be used to manifest your desires. Don’t think of it like witches have to look a certain way, think of clothing as another exciting ritual to perform on a daily basis. You have to get dressed, right? Unless you live in a nudist colony, getting dressed is an everyday routine that can become just as magical as your next moon ritual! Learn how to dress magically in modern day witch fashion including witchy bohemian clothing and useful links.
Modern Day Witch Fashion
No matter your actual style, be it witchy bohemian clothing, gothic witchy clothing, or casual, comfortable attire, you can add magick to what you wear in SO MANY different ways. There are options for every witch! First we’ll dive into the simplest form of magickal clothing – choosing the right color.
Clothing Color Magick
Color is important when it comes to wearing your magick. Lots of witchy women love the color black, and while it’s also my favorite, there are other colors that can help you manifest effectively. Here’s a basic guide to clothing color magick:
- White: Purity, Angelic Guidance, Protection, Transformation
- Black: Repels Negativity, Mysteries, Divination, Beginnings, Balance, Binding, Banishing
- Blue: Healing, Water Magick, Wisdom, Peace, Loyalty
- Green: Abundance, Earth Magick, Fairies, Love, Fertility
- Purple: Intuition, Dreams, Psychic Abilities, Metaphysics, Spirituality
- Yellow: Communication, Solar Magick, Creativity, Life, Prosperity, Humility
- Orange: Energy, Vitality, Opportunity, Confidence, Harvest, Strength, Legal Issues
- Pink: Friendship, Self-Love, Harmony, Femininity, Romance, Creation, Sex
- Red: Passion, Lust, Anger, Ambition, Combat, Self-Esteem, Power
- Gold: Money, Wealth, Power, Royalty, Inspiration
- Silver: Divination, Lunar Magick, Psychic Abilities
- Gray: liminal workings, traversing between realms unseen
- Brown: Security, Animal Magick, Fruitfulness, Grounding, Telepathy
What you wear you attract. So the day you wake up and want more money in your pockets, choose to wear a color you associate with money – be it green, yellow, or gold. If you want romantic love – wear red, pink, or green. Need healing? White, blue, or yellow are perfect for healing magick. Or you can wear the color that corresponds with the chakra in need of healing.
Witchy Bohemian Clothing
A style of modern day witch fashion that is popular is witchy bohemian clothing. While the Bohemian style of clothing is inspired by Romani “gypsy” clothes, it has become a popular trend in modern times. How can you wear witchy bohemian clothing for everyday magick? Long bohemian skirts can be layered with different colors for different intentions, a magical garter can be worn underneath your skirts, and don’t forget the layers of magical jewelry. Peasant tops and dresses are also a favorite: flowy, comfortable and witchy.
Witches love their jewelry. Magical rings, necklaces, bracelets, anklets, earrings, and more become the witch’s amulets and talismans. Often, witches are gifted with these pieces of magical jewelry seemingly from the universe. Maybe your favorite magical ring was once your grandmother’s. Or maybe a moonstone necklace “found” you in a local thrift store on the full moon. Whatever the story is – wear your magical jewelry when you need a boost of energy or when you need to feel connected to Mother Earth and the Universe. You can also enchant your jewelry for different intentions. Certain symbols on jewelry mean certain things – for example you can find runes as charms, the hamsa to ward off the evil eye, pentacles to represent the elements and your Wiccan faith, etc. Order small glass vial necklaces and put your favorite herbs and magical items inside for protection, love, success, etc.
These boots are made for walking…and other magical things! Your shoes protect your feet, your feet take you places, your feet are magical. Charm your shoes by inscribing sigils or power words on the bottom soles. Do knot magic with your shoelaces or tie your shoelaces into various shapes like a pentacle. Sprinkle finely-ground herbal spell powders into the bottom of your shoes to take your magic wherever you go! I love my witchy black boots, but also enjoy wearing sandals. Wear what’s comfortable and makes you feel like yourself.
Jeans & Witchy T-shirts
Modern day witch fashion doesn’t have to be about black clothes and gypsy skirts. If you’re more of a t-shirt and jeans kind of person, enchant your favorite pair of jeans by embroidering a sigil on them. Purchase t-shirts with power sayings, affirmations, and a witchy flare. If you like jean jackets, sew a witchy patch to the interior or exterior for extra protection throughout the day.
Witchy Hats and Hair Accessories
Save the pointed witch hats for Halloween – there’s another hat that’s popular in modern day witch fashion – the wide-brimmed black floppy hat. This kind of hat goes great with black dresses, witchy bohemian clothing, and with a t-shirt and a pair of black skinny jeans! With the popularity of AHS Coven’s iconic witch fashion, black witchy hats are all the rage. How can you make your witch hat more than a simple accessory? Add your own flair. Stick a feather in the ribbon – different feathers have different magical meanings. Learn about feather magic here. Sticking feathers in your hair or hair accessories is another fun, witchy option.
