Goth Up or Go Home


Gothic fashion has had a revamp recently with slinky silhouettes, black lace and sheer chiffon more than lurking out of the shadows this season.  With Halloween coming up, why not get into this season’s spirits by buying some interchangeable items which blend seamlessly into costumes as well as looking drop dead gorgeous in your day-to-day wardrobe.

Topshop have pounced on the grungey goth look with more than a few items of clothing. Their adorable bat motif knitted jumpers by J.W Anderson for Topshop not only keep you nice and cosy for those dark winter nights but fit the theme perfectly.

Alternatively, why not invest in an elegant, sheer maxi skirt with a side split.  This item channels your inner Morticia Addams, plus the design is ultra flattering and can be teamed with a multitude of items in your existing wardrobe.

Toughen up your everyday look with some leather.  Not only will this rock up your usual wardrobe, but this relatively cheap update brings out your dark side.  Why not try the leather panelled leggings available at Primark for a bit of dark glamour?

For a subtle hint of Halloween, there is also a large array of gothic jewellery on sale on the highstreet, just like this understated skull bracelet. When browsing the jewellery sections you will also find cross earrings as well as eye catching body necklaces which make a little more of an impact.

If you want to keep things classy, the Urban Outfitters black lace skirted dress from Pins and Needles (£55) is just the ticket.  Not only does the plunging neckline hint at your devilish side but this cute little black dress can be transformed easily into a corpse bride outfit with the addition of a veil.

Finally, buy a pair of brothel creepers.  Not only are they super comfortable, but they are definitely gothic and kind of remind me of Beetlejuice.  Now he was scary.  River Island do metallic pair for just £15 in the sale at the moment but if midnight black is more your thing then ASOS do a suede pair for £35.
