As references to ‘The Twilight Saga’ and ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ still permeate our conversations, the sting of a Gothic look returns to fashion this fall.
Darkly appealing on women of all ages, the mood is Vampira-meets-Harley Davidson, with a touch of Joan Jett in the mix. Choose your muse, and style accordingly.
From motorcycle jackets to slim-cut jeans to utility boots, we saw structure in black on the runways of Ann Demeulemeester, Tom Ford, and more. Below, find a few of our top Gothic picks.
