Ever since we spotted the Topshop Vinyl Trench at BFW – did you see it? – we knew that the gothic glam trend would have us all bewitched this season. The sassiest piece of outerwear that will definitely demand attention – just in time for Halloween too.
Black is full of glamour, sophistication and class. Think texture, layers and detail when styling an all black outfit. It’s all about the fabrics, quality and fit that successfully add depth and interest to a classic look. A style that is far from boring! We welcome you to the dark side as we talk you through the key points of the gothic glam trend.
The luxurious fabric is always a winner for the winter season. The sight of a black velvet dress, blazer or jumpsuit immediately screams Christmas. Brave a velvet tuxedo jacket with a pair of matching wide leg trousers for ultimate sophistication.
Tulle ballerina midi skirts certainly add interest to a head to toe black ensemble. Pair with a tailored blazer and sock Chelsea boots for a fun, flirtatious look. The more layers of tulle the better!
Black PVC is back and ready to cause havoc on your wardrobe edit. We’re still swooning over the Topshop trench with a pair of skinnies and pointed kitten heel boots. Just add a black tee and you’re ready to go!
A classic biker is a staple that survives each season. But don’t stop there we’ve spotted leather trousers on the high street and we very much approve. Wear with a shirt for an effortlessly cool vibe. Don’t forget a good pair of leather boots and bag last forever!
A tailored black suit is the epitome of understated class. Make sure it fits perfectly for a timeless, staple that will last a lifetime. Choose a pair of slim fit ankle grazers with a fitted blazer or go for high waisted wide leg trousers with a boyfriend suit jacket depending on your personal style.
A studded belt, boots or bag is the perfect accessory for an all black outfit. Add a pair of ripped black jeans and a biker jacket for the ultimate grunge vibe. Accessories are an easy way to add interest to an outfit.
Shimmer in Sequins
Those sequins are not just for Christmas. Rock a sequinned skirt or top to dazzle this Hallows Eve. Team a sequin skirt with a chunky knit, tights and boots for the perfect gothic glam look.
