Just in time for Halloween, the goth trend has resurfaced and is a strong influence for Winter 13 fashion.
It’s no surprise that the current obsession with dark fairytales has turned designers dark and deadly for Autumn. There is an obvious Victorian influence and the catwalks boasted ethereal looks of leather and lace fabrics, studs and embellishment and black-on –black palettes.
And if you think black is boring, think again! The neo-Gothic movement of this season channels a new noir and glam vamp that makes me want to revert to a monochromatic wardrobe. The trick here is to lift the look with some shine. All things metallic, silver and gold are a must for this look. Coated leathers and fabrics, iron-on studs and pyramid trims… anything goes really! For prints look to the oh-so-obvious skull prints and gothic crosses as well as take on animal and lace prints
And if an enrolment in cultish groups, black lipstick and goth music isn’t your thing, embrace this trend through jewellery. It’s probably the easier way to achieve the look.
Layered jewellery is key with this trend. Think multiple rings and stacked bracelets. Collections of rings are eclectic and goth-inspired with studs and gothic crosses offering an edgy take on the look.
The bracelet-ring is everywhere! It is definitely an item to watch for seasons to come.
