Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Ah Angel. We will never forget you. In the 90s most young teens were in love with him, so that means the boys tried to emulate him. He had the tough boy appeal–dressed all in black, long trench coats (I mean, he was a vampire…), and a hint of a white tee shirt.
Get the look…

So What’s the deal with Angel? I don’t remember him.
Well…”Angel (formerly Angelus, previously Liam) is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt for the television programs Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. He is played by actor David Boreanaz. Angel is a 242 year old vampire who is cursed with a soul, a punishment designed to make him suffer for his past crimes committed under the name Angelus. Like many characters in the Buffyverse, Angel goes through drastic changes. He starts out as a reluctant hero who stayed in the shadows, and ended up a dark, flawed, yet altruistic champion of mankind, seeking to voluntarily atone for his sins. In addition to the two television series, the character appears in the comic book continuations of both series.”
Shall we trace the lineage here?
Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. Famous for introducing the character of the vampire Count Dracula, the novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to relocate from Transylvania to England, and the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing.
Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic noveland invasion literature. The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, he defined its modern form, and the novel has spawned numerous theatrical, film and television interpretations.

Luckily for us in the fashion world, we don’t have to don a white sheet and faux fangs to resemble the characters from Being Human. The vampire, ghost, and werewolf not only wear regular clothes, but cool clothes.

Aiden–dark, dangerous, leather man Get the look:
You can’t be a tough street lurking yet human sensitive vampire without the proper gear. In this case it would be a hip leather coat and some bad a$$ cufflinks featuring vampire skull and cross bones. Aiden has killer style, that’s one reason why the ladies love him.
To explore Aiden’s sensitive side, check out these Butterfly Wings from Aymara. Black with tinges of red streaked on the wing, these sterling silver gems will bring your rocker ensemble full circle.
