Shopping Guide : What Do Spinsters Wear?

Upon seeing these stills of Helena Bonham Carter playing Miss Havisham in the upcoming version of Great Expectations, we realized that Miss Havisham really defined the spinster uniform which is “a decaying wedding gown.” But what if you find decaying wedding gowns unwieldy? What if white is a bad color on you? Can you still be a spinster and teach your young ward to break hearts to ashes? You bet you can! We have some ideas on alternative outfits right here.

      Fun fact: “spinster” is actually just the female equivalent of “bachelor,” and technically applies to all unmarried women, regardless of their ages. YOU ARE ALL SPINSTERS. Isn’t it awesome how one of these words got to be cool and the other got to be pathetic? I love sexist connotations (not).
