The gothic culture is so multifaceted, with its array of styles with their different codes - maybe World Goth Day is the day to go back to your roots and express through your outfit  what drew you to being a goth in the first place.

“The gothic subculture contributed to what kind of a person I am today. I am fascinated by sensitivity and looking for beauty where it seems to be absent. I have always liked vampires, snakes, dragons, bats, that is, everything in the "mainstream" is considered repulsive and associated with evil.” - Blue Astrid

 We’ve asked a few gothic fashion bloggers to tell us what they like most about gothic fashion, see their answers below !

What do you love most about the gothic subculture ? 

“ [ What I like most is ] darkness, elegance, style often referring to bygone eras (Renaissance, Victorian, and even the Middle Ages).” - Blue Astrid

If, like Blue Astrid, you’re more of a romantic goth - meaning you have interest in elegant dark clothing inspired by historical eras, you’ll love floor-length dresses such as the Shadecrown Dress and ornate corsets like the Lioncourt Corset. Don’t hesitate to go all out with delicate lacy gloves and a detailed umbrella, after all, this is the day to dress up !

“ I love the empowerment that Gothic fashion gives you.” - Cherrylips.cherry

Gothic Fashion is definitely a way to step out of the box and express yourself in style : if, like Cherrylips.cherry, you’re on the daring and want to go out of your comfort zone, what about trying out a fetish goth look ? The Masochism Top
will go wonderfully with the Meteora Pants  for a sleek, shiny and head turning look !
