Goth Glamour

I’ve always loved Victorian tailoring and style: long sweeping silhouettes, black, scarlet, velvet, leather, and seam details. My appreciation for the look may be in large part due to my other love: the nineteenth century novel. Though Goth’s origins can be found in the Victorian cult of mourning, the look has been transformed over the decades by various designers into what I would categorize as a glamorous or excessive minimalism. Here are some of my favorite contemporary interpretations that take this tailoring from traditional to modern vintage chic.

The Sweatshirt

I like sweatshirts that are a bit unexpected, with interesting details and patterns. They can be paired with a skirt, pants or jeans for a casual chic look. To play up the contrast between informal and dressy, you can accessorize with a great piece of jewelry or a ladylike bag.
