Shadowhunter Style: S1:E7 “Major Arcana” and S1:E8 “Bad Blood”

Shadowhunter Sty;e

Okay, I’ll admit I’ve been slacking a bit when it comes to my Shadowhunter Style posts. In order to make it up you guys, I’ve put together a super addition of all the stand out wardrobe moments from the last two episodes.

Here are my to picks for the best looks from Major Arcana and Bad Blood and some tips on how you can recreate these gorgeous outfits.


Look from S1:E7

In Major Arcana, Isabelle made the decision to overhaul her reputation and her wardrobe in order to help improve her family’s standing in the Clave. While she debuted a much more toned-down version of her usual look, she still manages to let her fiery personality shine through despite her more conservative duds. Get Izzy’s new serious look with a fitted navy sheath dress. Add a cool leather jacket with unique detailing (I used one with lace for the example below) and a pair of heels with some spike embellishments as a nod to Izzy’s wild side. Finish it off with a a silver coil bracelet and statement ring and a ruby pendant.

In Bad Blood, Izzy proved she could even make a lab coat look fierce when she traded in her her usual field work for some time in the Institute lab. She kept things simple and understated with a touch of her signature flair. To get her sexy scientist look, pair a long-sleeved black dress with simple black pumps. Top it with a funky white peplum blazer to replicate the silhouette of her fashionable lab coat. Top everything off with the accessories from her Major Arcana outfit.

Look from S1:E7

In Major Arcana, we got the return of Camille and her continuous taunting of Simon. Of course, this queen of seduction knew exactly how to play every trick in her ancient book to get in that poor boy’s head. Get her sleek and sexy look with a body-hugging, lacy navy dress and sparkly gold heels. When it comes to accessories, size definitely does matter, so finish everything off with bold, gold statement jewelry.

In Bad Blood, Camille was forced to face that she and clan had some bad blood of their own when right-hand man Raphael let a mutiny against her. Maybe it’s fitting that she went out in a blaze of fiery red. Get her her look with a fitted red dress with black lace detailing and spiked red heels. Unlike her look from the last episode, the accessories accessories are much sleeker, so stick with some gold hoops and a couple modern bangles.

The Lewis Ladies

In Major Arcana, we were introduced to Simon’s mother and sister. Normally, I don’t do fashion breakdowns for minor one-off characters, but I thought the Lewis ladies were a special case. I love how the wardrobe department used pinks, neutrals and florals to create a visual contrast and highlight the differences between these mundane women and our beloved shadowhunter ladies.

Mrs. Lewis

For Mrs. Lewis’ simply chic ensemble, pair a blush pencil skirt with a sleeveless white blouse and two-toned nude pumps. Finish it off with some dainty gold accessories.


A true child of Brooklyn, Simon’s sister Rebecca definitely invokes the artsy vibe of the borough. Get her bohemian-inspired look with a a light and flawy floral dress and knee-high brown riding boots. Cinch the dress at the waist with a wide leather belt and complete the look with jewelry that features natural elements like wood and crystals.

In Bad Blood, we were introduced to the new head of the Institute Lydia Branwell. Just like her personality, her no-nonsense style is all business. Capture her look by pairing a simple black tank with black trouser pants and and a leather chain belt. Mix in a brown blazer and a pair of lace-up booties for a militaristic vibe. Complete the look with simple black stud earrings, a gold pendant, a studded leather wrap bracelet, and embellished rings for a final outfit that’s tough yet chic.

Shadowhunter Style: S1:E5 “Moo Shu to Go”

Shadowhunter Sty;e

On this week’s episode of Shadowhunters, the gang faces a pack of angry werewolves after Clary gets kidnapped on Alec’s watch, Luke proves his loyalty to Clary, and Alec and Isabelle’s mother Mayrse returns to the New York Institute.

While she embraced adoptive son Jace with open arms, Mayrse’s reunion with her biological children was less than warm, especially with Isabelle. From their first lines, it’s clear that mother and daughter have their issues. These two women couldn’t be anymore different than night and day in both their actions and their personal styles. They may both wear black dresses in this episode, but the dresses themselves and the way they are styles are two completely different looks. (Both ladies do love a bold red lip though. Maybe there is hope.)

Isabelle’s Look

Mayrse may disapprove of her daughter’s vamped up look, but Isabelle doesn’t let that distain for her appearance force her into conforming to her mother’s more conservative ways. She puts her own sexy spin on the classic LBD, and now you can too. Start with a sleeveless black dress that has a zip-up front and layer a sexy lace bralette underneath. Slide the zipper down just far enough, the bralette peeks out. Pull on a pair of thigh-high boots, and finish the look off with a bold ring, a red stone pendant and a snake cuff bracelet. Isabelle would totally approve.

Mayrse’s Look

Unlike her daughter’s wild child ways, Mayrse is much more conservative in both her actions and her personal style. She is a woman who truly believes appearances are everything, and the most important thing is how her family is looked upon by the Clave. Get her sleek business look by pairing a sleeveless, modestly cut, textured black dress with a peplum blazer and and simple pumps. Use an embellished belt to chinch the blazer at the waist to create an hourglass silhouette. Finish the look off with a stretchy gray stone bracelet, dainty stacked rings, and some simple stud earrings. The only thing missing is Mayrse’s don’t-mess-with-me attitude.

Shadowhunter Sty;e

On this week’s episode of Shadowhunters, Clary, Isabelle, Alec and Jace team up to rescue Simon from the clutches of a clan of vampires while trying to hash out their own personal relationships. Alec questioned his place, Isabelle questioned (and bedded) a fairy downworlder for intel, Clary questioned her feeling for Jace, and Simon was questioned by a pair of vampires hellbent on finding Clary and the Mortal Cup.

From vampire lairs and fairy bedrooms to graveyards and dive bars, the one thing no one need to question was the sultry, badass looks Clary, Isabelle, and vampire leader Camille were rocking in this episode. Perfect for your next night out, here’s how to recreate the best looks of “Dead Man’s Party.”

In order to rescue her best friend, Clary turned on the charm to lure a vampire into giving Jace his keys in a downworlder dive bar. She proved she’s transforming from girl next door to shadowhunter in both her look and attitude. Unleash your inner shadowhunter by combining your favorite pair of black skinny jeans with a dark colored tank, edgy black booties, and a badass leather jacket. A studded belt and purple crystal necklace take this look from basic to badass.

She’s rocked all white and proven she owns black. In this episode, Isabelle turned up the heat in red to seduce her seelie lover Meliorn for intel on the Hotel DuMort. Channel Isabelle’s fiery spirit  by pairing a sexy red body-con dress with black lace-up stilettos. Add some edge with Isabelle’s signature snake bracelet, a long crystal necklace, and brass knuckle clutch.

Sophisticated and seductive, few can resist falling under the enchanting spell of vampire leader Camille. Just ask Simon. All she needs is a little lace and gold. Capture her gothic look by pairing a curve-hugging black lace dress with golden heels for a sexy, modern twist. Long gold earrings and a stylized mix of gold bangles are small finishing touches that make bold statement. Bloody Mary anyone?
