Let us now have a look at some of the ways which you can follow to dress like Bellatrix Lestrange.

A Long Black Dress

The first thing you need is a long black dress. It does not need to be intricately designed. A simple well fitted dress in black, reaching down between your knee and ankle length is enough. It should however be in solid black colour. If you do not have a black dress like this with you, you can either buy it from the nearby store selling gothic outfits or you can order it online as well. There is another amazing solution for this. If you have a long solid black skirt and a solid black shirt, you can combine them together to get the look.

Black Stockings

Once you select the black dress for the look, it’s time to get a pair of black stockings to add with it. A pair of black sheer stockings or a pair of fishnets are enough to complete the Bellatrix outfit.

High-Heeled Boots in Black

If you have read the novels or have watched the series, you must have seen Bellatrix wearing high-heel-ed boots and that too in black colour. So in order to get the look of Bellatrix Lestrange, you must add a pair of black boots in high heels. It would be better if the boots have stiletto heels. However, your comfort is also important. If you are not comfortable with the above mention-ed heels, you can go for a pair of boots with supportive heels. If you do not want to have heels at all, you can go for a pair of boots in solid black colour and flat heels.

Black Corset and Black Fingerless Gloves

Bellatrix Lestrange wears a black corset to accentuate her curves. You can also add a black corset over your dress to do the same. By adding black corset to her dress, she emits a mystic attitude, gothic darkness and sensuality through her character. With that you can add a pair of black fingerless gloves to get that edgy roughness that Bellatrix has in her character. Make sure that the gloves reach at least till your elbows.

Gothic Accessories

Bellatrix wears a necklace which is simple and is silver in colour and also comes with a green pendant. You can search for the exact design or go for a custom made necklace replicating the design. If you are unable to get the same design, you can either go for a Victorian style gothic necklace or any occult necklace that goes well with your dress and overall getup. Bellatrix also holds a magic wand to get a complete witch look. You can also go for a wand, either buy it or DIY at home. If you do not want to hold a wand, you can go for gothic handbags. That will also give you a complete witch look.

That you are covering one of your eyes with a big chunk of hair, because that is a typical Bellatrix Lestrange look.
