If you have always described yourself, both as you have navigated through your childhood and teenage years, and when taking online quizzes and surveys in magazines, as a goth, then in adult life, it will still be important for you to express who you are through your clothing.
With this in mind, here are the top four clothing items to express your gothic sense of style and to make a statement when you work, rest, and play.
- Skull Designs
Perhaps the most obvious and overt piece of imagery which is most common and has long since been associated with goths and gothic culture is the skull, and you can choose a simple accessory with a skull motif to add a touch of goth to your outfit.
For more striking skull designs, and especially if you are incredibly skilled with a needle and thread, you could choose to find some beautiful, embroidered fabric with skull embellishments and make your own skirt, dress, or even overcoat.
- Black Overcoats
The beauty of harbouring a penchant for the colour black is that it can be worn with virtually everything, from more casual jeans and t-shirts to a stunning evening dress and, as such, a black overcoat is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe.
Additionally, the colour, or in fact lack thereof, black is also perfect for boosting your confidence levels when you are temporarily unhappy with your body weight, or else you are a proud larger lady and want to dress to impress. If so, be sure to check out the wide range of plus size jackets uk online.
- Think Genderless Outfits
Another key feature of dressing to suit your gothic nature and indeed one way to dress in a gothic style when you are at work and are bound by the confines of normal office wear is to choose androgynous suits.
Naturally, you should look to choose a black suit, either in a skirt or trousers form, and make sure that your make-up and accessories complement such a genderless outfit. For added impact, and especially if you are the manager and nobody can tell you what not to wear, you could add some drama with a vintage-inspired choker made from black lace.
- Gothic Accessories
As previously touched upon, a scarf emblazoned with a skull motif is the perfect way to add just the slightest hint of a gothic personality, but if you are looking for altogether more dramatic gothic accessorizing inspiration, then read on.
Silver chained metal chokers and long dangling necklaces are the ideal pairings with a low-cut black t-short or jumpsuit, and when it comes to earrings and rings, you can go to town. Choose statement rings, maybe one on each finger, which are larger than normal and simple metal circles for your other fingers.
Other gothic accessories which will match your dark and intriguing personality could include handbags and shoulder bags in dark black leather with raised motifs.
