Gothic footwear has been around for almost 40 years now with top designers Vivienne Westwood and Jeffery Campbell creating some of the most memorable designs in history. With time, the market has evolved and non-goths too love the trendy but comfortable boots that are a trademark of goth fashion. Cashing in on the demand, streetwear brands like Demonia shoes online and Doc Martens now specialize in goth shoes. The shoes are exaggerated with pointy toes, a ton of buckles, and a variety of heels ranging from platforms, kitten heels, slinky heels to boots. Here are a few ways that you can wear the trendy shoes.
Wear them with tights: You may not be wearing the goth look daily but you can definitely rock the boots by wearing them with black opaque tights. Combine them with black formal shorts, a printed/black tank top, and a blazer. Team this with a little bling, heavy eye makeup and loose wavy hair. This works for an evening out as the boots offer wonderful support while still creating an in-trend appearance.
Casual: Combine the goth boots with your favorite skinny jeans. Team this with a average-length tee that’s layered with a jacket or pullover and you are good to go.
Work: Its difficult to justify wearing trending goth boots to work but with the current cold snap, you could just get away with it. Team a long ankle-skimming skirt with a formal top, a blazer and a scarf with the boots. A short flirty skirt with the knee-high buckled boots and a leather jacket may not be everyone’s cup of tea but the boots do make a trend statement.
Apart from the trendy boots, you can nail goth fashion with smart jewelry. For example, pewter rings are “in” right now. Choose gem-encrusted rings or bangles for daily wear. Wristbands and chokers are a good option as well. Belts with chains or a wide belt can create definition. Dark black or tan belts are the best.
Makeup can pull the look together in the form of dark eyeliner, dark eye makeup and loose hair with highlights. Although black lipstick is de-rigeur for a goth look, you can choose a dark lipstick or a dark gloss to pull your look together.
