What To Wear To A Séance

Now that Halloween is right around the corner (or you've watched The Craft too many times to count), you or your friends may have had the itch to get in touch with the spirit world by holding a séance. While we can't teach you exactly how to perform a successful ritual, we can certainly tell you what to wear to it, which is just as important. (Yes, we're being serious.) So gather some friends, grab some candles and get ready to communicate with the supernatural–in style, duh.
