The goth style is one that encompasses many different ideas and viewpoints, but it is one that is easily formatted to your personality and preference when it comes to dressing. So what are some ideas you can make your own when it comes to spooky and fun goth outfits women can wear? Keep reading to find out.
Dresses are a great addition to any goth lady’s wardrobe. Why? Because no matter what your style is, there will be days when you want to look amazing with minimal effort. Fortunately, you can stock your closet with many cute dresses that complement the goth style, even if they aren’t goth in and of themselves. Look for black dresses in simple shapes, if you are shopping at a store that isn’t only for goth women. Also, keep in mind that you can wear other colors while still dressing in goth fashion. Look for dark burgundy, navy, purple, and even shades of gray. As far as materials are concerned, velvet is always a good idea, as are lace and leather.
A lady who dresses in the goth style is going to want to have separates in her closet – lots and lots of separates. In fact, one of the most classic goth outfits women can wear involves putting together lots of pieces to make one uniform look. When shopping, look for plain black (as black is going to be your base color, no matter which subcategory of goth style you decide to dress in) t-shirts, camisoles, sweaters, fishnet and lace pull-overs, skirts, shorts, etc. Of course, you can always branch out into other colors but these are going to be your saving graces when you go to dress yourself each day. Depending on your chosen subcategory, you will also want to get yourself some long coats to tie everything together when the weather is on the cool side. Traditionally, goth pieces tend to be form-fitting, although you can select whatever you wish.
A goth lady can really have fun with accessorizing. Regarding footwear, you can choose chunky platform boots (we recommend those made by Demonia), creepers, pumps and other heels, and even babydoll shoes to complete your look. In fact, footwear is arguably the most fun part of dressing in the goth style. Make sure that you have a pair of shoes for each one of your desired looks and occasions. For example, a pair of vegan creepers can tie together an outfit that is fit for a casual day out, while a sensible pair of dark purple heels with black lace can work well with an outfit you wear to a formal function.
Other accessories you don’t want to miss out on? Fishnet stockings and other hosiery styles that appeal to you, and even gloves/arm warmers. You also will want to stock up on jewelry that goes with the goth style, such as lace chokers and bone-inspired earrings and bracelets. If you enjoy DIY, you can even make your own jewelry for a unique touch to your goth outfits.
