Get the Gothic look right

Gothic fashions are still a major fad in the UK, with many people turning to ‘the dark side’ for sartorial inspiration and wearing everything from leather to PVC and crushed velvet. There are a number of Gothic designers working in the UK, not to mention online stores where you can pick up clothes and a range of accessories.

One of the biggest and most well-known is which stocks an impressive selection of Gothic and alternative clothes, including wedding dresses, boleros and corsets.

Gothic women

Women often fall in love with Gothic fashions because of the form-fitting beauty of corsets and fish-tail skirts which accentuate curves and give you a certain dark glamour. Although corsets aren’t for everyone and are something of an acquired taste, being not particularly comfortable, they do come in a dazzling array of colours and styles and are a worthy addition to any Gothic wardrobe. If you’re not afraid to be dramatic and stand out in the crowd opt for a Dark Raven Cameo Black Satin Underbust Corset by Restyle, but if you’d prefer a more subtle look while still benefiting from a cinched-in waist then purchase something like a Black Faux Leather Girdle Belt.

For something a little more casual peruse the wares of Hell Bunny and settle for an Avalon Rose and Anchor Mini Dress. To find out more about the range of women’s clothing head to

Gothic men

The Gothic Shop is a fashion haven for Goth men as well as women, selling everything from tees and work shirts to elaborate trousers and formal tops.

For a more casual day-to-day look select from the online store’s selection of men’s T-shirts such as the Back from the Dead Men’s White T-shirt or the Waisted Men’s Fitted Sleeveless Top, perfect for warmer weather.

In winter, when you want to look stylish without risking chilblains, you can still rock the Gothic look in a Marduk Men’s Hooded Trenchcoat, a Cratos Woollen Military Men’s Coat or an Odin Full Length Gothic Hooded Trench Coat with a high collar to protect your face from the winter wind.
