Welcome to the dark side—bet you didn’t think it would be this glamorous. We’re talking about the lace-dashed, luxed-up goths, where bubblegum pink lacquered platforms are the footwear du jour and BDSM-tinged chokers are a staple. And the sensually demonic styles are not coming out of the blue (or the black): Versions of the sassy-meets-gloomy aesthetic were a hit on the Fall 2016 runways at Alexander Wang, who gave the look the bratty mall rat treatment, and at Rodarte, where the subculture got elegant on model Kiki Willems, who was belted into a frill-embellished leather jacket complete with fishnets and a negligee-like skirt. And for those searching for an all-black swathe of enchantment: An empire-waist Victorian-style gown stole the show at Oscar de la Renta.
Keen on dabbling in the cool (and very hot) underworld? Your options are wide and varied—and at a serious range of prices. So how exactly to wear that Elvira-esque lace dress? Top it off with some pentagram hoops and blue velvet platforms! Want to add a pop of color to any shadowy ensemble? Some crushed velvet fire engine red creepers allow for the perfect bit of contrast. Turns out that going goth doesn’t have to be so dreary after all. Here, see the six revamped ways to add an air of elevated darkness to your look.
