Goths opt for an alternate fashion style that stretches the borders of traditional fashion. And to do that, we get a collection of gothic fashion items that we explore and play around with to achieve that aim. However, we tend to get bored with this collection, mostly after using up everything in the collection. But you don’t have to fret if you find yourself in such a situation. Here are a few tips on how to improve your Gothic collection.
Get The Right Accessories
The right accessories will elevate your Gothic collection any day, anytime. You might need to think outside the box and opt for things you haven't tried before. If you have been using Goth-style pendants and earrings, it's time to try something else. Try using brooches that you could well add to your gloves or even laces. Get some costume jewelry while you are at it too. Heck, you could even go the whole nine yards with your accessories and customize them using stuff like feathers and even watch parts.
You might also want to throw in printed clutches and oversized earrings into the mix. Just make sure that whatever you come up with doesn’t cross the thin line between the bizarre and the insane.
Get Some New Footwear
This is a surefire way to elevate your Gothic collection. They have a great way of changing an ensemble. But here's the thing, you want to try something different from what you already have—no point in getting several pairs of the same type of footwear.
So when you are out for new footwear, you want to try something different both in style and color. Dark brown boots are a great option because they go well with black. Charcoal is another great color for boots.
Now you don’t have to stick to boots. There are other great footwear that could complement your Goth attire. Whatever you buy, factor in the season and the look you are trying to pull off.
Get More Your Dark Colors
Now we all know that black is our signature color as Goths. But no Goth fashion handbook says that you must always dress in black. Neither is there any fashion police to arrest or call you out if you explore other colors.So while the monochromatic look is a great one, you could switch things up once in a while. When shopping for fashion items, try your hand at other colors like deep blue, purple, coffee, tan, and grey.
Keep Things Simple
There are loads of great Gothic outfits that are as crazy as they come. There is a time and season for such apparel. If that’s all you have in your collection, maybe it's time you try something that is a lot more toned down. Shop for simple fashion items like T-shirts and regular pants as long as they fit you nicely and enhance your body frame.
There you have it. You could always elevate your Gothic collection whenever you feel things are no longer as exciting as they should. Apply the tips we described in the article when you want something different in your Gothic collection.
