Goth FashionGoth Fashion is a particular style of clothing noted mainly for wearing Black. Black clothes, black nail polish, black hair, black intense cosmetics.
It also has mystical Wicca kind of feel about it. Having a lot of its roots in Victorian and punk, this look I suspect will be around though will morph with the times.
These day when I think of this look I also think of stylized grunge,t-shirts, vintage belts, asymmetrical leather jackets, long black trench coats,black turtlenecks and black. Jeans with and without rips, and lots of layers and draping.
So what is it about the goths and their love affair with the color black? Black is paired with everything, including other blacks of course, as well as grey, beige, and any other neutral color.
For example, a black Rick Owens’s leather jacket over a grey Vivienne Westwood skirt paired with a Haider Ackermann cotton t-shirt.
For women , is clothing at the height of fashion, with the “take no prisoners” attitude and leaving a wake behind them. These are the women who are willing to take a risk for the sake of personal expression.
They seek out wearable art in every avenue of clothing they wear. Handmade jewelry, old chains with pocket watches paired with Frye harness boots, and plain silver hoops from an import store.
Perhaps chains, bangles, and peace signs, with an old leather Coach tote or a designer backpack from an out-of-the-way vintage shop. The words edgy, hip, and cool, with a little grunge, sleek or chic come to mind.
The label isn't important, what is important, is how you feel in the clothes you wear. How to pull this look together - first, there are no set rules, with the exception that one should wear black, the more black the better.
