Get ready to descend into a deeper, darker side of fashion for fall. This season, we’re taking cues from the likes of Wednesday Addams and the girls from The Craft with our glam take on Gothic style. Per tradition, black is best, but sultry jewel tones will do too. When it comes to texture, the more the better. It’s all about lace and crushed velvet plus out-of-this-realm accessories to match.

Crush On Plush: Everyone knows that velvet is the “it” texture for fall, but it’s also a quintessential goth wardrobe staple. Rich, moody hues offer a sensuous alternative to black, while ruffled necklines and bell sleeves conjure up some witchy-chic vibes (think Maleficent, not Hermione Granger).
Go For Baroque: Mark our words – brocade is gonna be big for fall. To get the look, try a filigreed piece with ornate scroll and quill detailing. Create even more Gothic glamour by upping the textural impact with velvet and mesh details. The result: an elegant yet edgy look for any autumnal event.
Just In Lace: A cornerstone of Gothic fashion, Victorian lace is one of the key components in the trend’s latest revival. This traditionally romantic textile gets a vampy upgrade with elements like tiered skirts, sweeping silhouettes, and exaggerated sleeves inspired by capes and trains.
The Necks Best: It’s easy to rock the haute goth style with Victorian-influenced jewelry. The choker is already this year’s most sought-after accessory, but intricate scalloped lace, vintage-inspired brooches, and symbolic pendants add the perfect amount of avant-garde glam.
