8 Ways to do Gothic Glamour ...

By Sophia

Gothic glamour is a trend that’s dominating fall and winter fashion. From Gucci to Versace to Givenchy, designers are embracing all things dark, moody, and mysterious this season. You can work gothic glam touches into your outfit in varying degrees, depending on how much drama you want to add to your look. Read on to find out how to work this season’s goth glamour trend.

1 Lots of Lace

Lots of Lace Lace is probably the fabric of choice if you want to incorporate some gothic glamour into your look. Darker colours are perfect for this season, ranging from black to burgundy hues. A lace dress is a fool-proof option but you could also branch out with some lace pants (you’ll find a range of designers trying this look out this season) or a lace jacket.

2 Vampy Lips

Vampy Lips An easy way to give your outfit a touch of gothic glamour is with your makeup. A deep red or burgundy lip is a great way to add some edge to your look. The key is to keep the rest of your makeup fairly simply with just the right amount of colour on your cheeks to complement the darkness of your lips.

3 Leather Touches

Leather Touches Leather is huge this season and it works really well with gothic inspired trends. Invest in leather pants or a pencil skirt to team with lace tops and sheer blouses. It’ll give your wardrobe a contemporary edge but with plenty of gothic glam to boot.

4 Dark Eyes

Dark Eyes Another beauty look that screams gothic glamour is heavy eye makeup. You’ve got to be careful though, because you want to come across as more high fashion than high-schooler let loose with an eyeliner pencil. A smoky eye is standard fare but this season try creating a vinyl, wet-look lid for added intensity.

5 High Collars

High Collars Keep your necklines high if you want to pull off a gothic glam look this season. While high frilly collars have an almost Victorian era feel to them, keep it modern with a rounded or button up collar. If you feel like you’re covering up too much skin, try a lightweight or sheer fabric to balance up any austere designs.

6 Rich Colours

Rich Colours Darker colours rule when it comes to incorporating gothic glamour into your outfits. Black is a staple but this season try other on-trend colours too. Hues like oxblood, midnight blue, and emerald green work very well with this trend.

7 Opulent Jewels

Opulent Jewels Accessories can play a big part in giving your outfit an air of gothic romance. It’s all about the bejeweled statement pieces lately. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and brooches – the more opulent and ornate the better!

8 Lace up Boots

Lace up Boots Finish your gothic inspired outfit off with a pair of lace up ankle boots. A heeled pair would be a good option for pairing underneath flowing midi and maxi length skirts. It’ll add a risqué touch to your outfit in true gothic glam style.

These are just a few ideas for working some gothic glamour into your look this season. You don’t have to go all out with the trend, with subtle touches being equally as fashionable. What do you think of the gothic glam trend? Are there any other things you think epitomise gothic glamour?
