Glam Goes Goth

By  October 05, 2013

Speaking from experience, goth is a look you don’t have to be afraid to try. The style blends soft, romantic silhouettes in floating fabrics with hard-edged accessories and macabre motifs. You need not own a copy of “The Handbook for the Recently Deceased”, to tap into your own version of Lydia Deetz. A monochromatic element in the form of a bold liner, manicure, or (if you’re daring enough) dark lip will suffice to turn you over to the dark side, even for a day (or night). Here are a few ways to incorporate the misunderstood style into your wardrobe and vanity.
