There's just something about the cooling of the weather that makes dressing head to toe in black so attractive to us. But don’t roll your eyes just yet — you should know that our idea of goth fashion has nothing to do with velour corsets or Hot Topic.
Our darker-side picks come across more as the ideal grown-up wardrobe of some of our very favorite film antiheroines. What do we think that a 20-something Wednesday Addams or Lydia Deetz would favor? Dark makeup buoyed by a healthy sense of humor, morbidly graphic sweatshirts and tanks, and tailored-to-perfection black dresses. It’s a touch of the macabre — a rather subtle way to keep it goth — without going the full, traditional “Goths Up Trees” monty.
