Trend Report gothic style

Everyone has a dark side, but at London and New York Fashion Week some designers went full gothic romantic on the runway. At Rodarte we saw the talented sisters turn their hand to gothic victorian dresses adorned in delicate lace work and embellishment, worn with knee high leather boots and delicate jewels. British designer Simone Rocha favored more demonic styles, pairing her designs with satin gloves, sheer tights and black brogues. Rocha also created asymmetric gothic jackets, somewhat reminiscent of Comme Des Garcons. It’s a welcome change from the pop tones and florals that many designers include within their spring collections, with movement emphasized by many of these dresses. Gothic dresses are also perfect for fall, and easy to wear with layers- you can either dress them up with a pair of kitten heels or wear them under warm coats and jackets. No. 21 took the trend to the next level, creating punk-inspired a gothic lolita dress cinched at the waist with ruffles and a wisps of sheer for the skirt. Depending on how you intend to style gothic clothes will really change the look, elevating it to gothic romantic opulence or a fresh twist on the classic trend. If elegance is more your forte, follow in Rodarte's lead and wear fine jewellery, or like Simone Rocha, with bold statement earrings.
