This Halloween season, Trystan is indulging her gothy love of black garb in frock flicks fashion by looking at some of the most fabulous black dresses in historical costume movies and TV shows. Black wasn’t just worn for mourning, after all!
Last Friday, I gave you my favorite black frocks in 16th-century historical costume movies and TV shows. While, of course black clothing was still worn during the 17th and 18th centuries, on screen, the frocks get iffy. For the 17th century, most of what’s shown in movies and TV in black is Puritans (snore), and for the 18th century’s frock flicks, everything goes pastel. Thus, I’m combining them into one post!
Here are some of my favorite 17th and 18th-century historical frocks in black. What are yours?
The Girl King (2015)
The Draughtsman’s Contract (1982)
Plunkett & Macleane (1999)
The Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001)
Marie Antoinette (2006)
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
What’s your favorite black outfit in these historical costume movies and TV shows?
