Vampire Diaries Fashion – How to Dress Like Katherine Pierce



Today, we have another installment of our Vampire Diaries fashion inspiration series. Over the past few weeks, we’ve showed you how to dress like Elena Gilbert, Caroline Forbes, and Bonnie Bennet, and recreate their styles on a college budget. This week, we’ll spotlight Katherine Pierce‘s style.

Katherine’s Style

Although she has a striking resemblance to Elena, Katherine definitely has her own style. Katherine opts for looks that reflect her personality – meaning she chooses pieces that are bold, chic and oozing confidence. Her style is definitely a little bit over-the-top sometimes, but you have to hand it to her – she knows how to command attention.

Whether you’re a jeans and tank-top girl or have a closet full of stilettos, Katherine’s style can offer a little inspiration for everyone.

The Vixen

Opting for form-fitting, barely-there dresses, Katherine is definitely not one to wear heavily printed or ruffled, girly frocks. Her dress style is all about sleek and chic sex appeal, always with an air of mystery.

To get her look, stock up on little black dresses with simple embellishments like lace or ribbon. Add a great pair of pumps and dramatic makeup to capture Katherine’s dramatic style.

The Victorian

Some of the most interesting outfits on Vampire Diaries come from the historical flashbacks. Lacy dresses and lush fabrics are often seen in these flashbacks, and they represent the epitome of Victorian elegance.

Sadly, we can’t all wear gowns to class, but there are ways to include a little Victorian inspiration in your day-to-day looks. Look for pieces in light colors like blues and creams, delicate embellishments, and vintage (or vintage-inspired) jewelry to capture the look.

The Tough Girl

Of all of the characters, Katherine’s style is definitely the most scandalous and boundary-pushing. From tight leather pants and motorcycle jackets to sky-high heels, her looks are all about grabbing attention.

If head-to-toe leather isn’t quite your style, try black jeans and a simple bright top. Dark skinny jeans are super versatile – you can pair them with booties and a bomber jacket for a night out or with flats and an oxford shirt for a lunch date. Definitely worth the investment!

Tying it All Together

Katherine’s style is all about confidence. Heels, skinny jeans and form-fitting dresses are her go-to pieces for day and night. If those over-the-top looks aren’t quite your speed, take some inspiration from her period costumes. Either way, you can’t go wrong.

What do you think of Katherine’s look? Are these outfits that you’d try or are you a bigger fan of the other characters’ styles? I love hearing your feedback each week, be sure to leave a comment!

    This is a really abnormal thing to comment on but I really like how you tag the clothes in your example pictures. Most writers on here just tie the link to the name of the item but I love that you put the store its from as well. Sometimes the links don’t work so it really helps to know the store. Not to mention that seeing a shirt I’m on the fence about buying is from f21 rather then a more expensive store makes me more interested in actually purchasing it since I know its inexpensive. (Goes both ways: if its an investment piece from f21 I know to stay away because its most likely lower quality.) Its just nice to have that information before clicking the link and getting my hopes up/ forming an incorrect opinion based just on the pic. I wish all the writers on here listed stores as well because it really saves me time!!

    But also this is a great post and I really like her style.

    I agree with the above commenters. Also sometimes I really wish we could wear gorgeous gowns to class…then again, half the class would probably still turn up in their sweats or pajamas! But it’s a nice idea to include elements of Victorian fashion.

    I agree with the putting the names of the stores instead of just making a link. Sometimes I don’t want to click on the link, i just want to know what general stores those looks come from

    I love the show and all the girl’s style, but this is the one I most relate to. I kind of wish the style of today was back to victorian- I love the dresses, they are so gorgeous. Plus, the corsets can help keep me standing straight.

    i love her style.

    just a suggestion: I would really like you guys to do a post on how to recreate Kate Reed’s look, from Fairly Legal. She has a great style, very professional but still cute, personal and casual.

    I just stumbled upon this. Love the outfits you created!
    I am looking everywhere for a jacket like the one in the last outfit. Do you know where I can find such a jacket? The link isn’t working anymore.
    Thanks so much!

    I just looove all these outfits! Great job :)

    I was wondering if you, by any chance, may know where to get a black corset similar to the one Katherine wears in a flashback (can’t remember which episode…)? I’ve been looking everywhere! I love that corset. I think it’s so pretty with the white lace. :)

    Just saw this. Could you maybe do an update? I think season 2,3 and 4 have shown us even more great Katherine styles.

    I really really do love her styles, -like Valenntina said sexy, but suitable for everyday life :)

    I love Katherine’s look/style. her style basically screams I am a badass chick who can also make you fall in love with me. There are also allot of things Katherine wears that show the pretty innocent side to her. Elena has a great look also it is just very different, both looks say were beautiful tough chicks here and you going to fall for us no matter what!
