Glamourous Gothic

This isn't your high school outcast's goth.  The current interpretation of gothicism bears a brooding, cimmerian palette combined with sharp lines, soft textures, and an overall elegant sophisticated feeling.

Italian Vogue has reported on the trend, but I'm here to put my twist on things.  Most of us have been hit by the recession and I'll be the first to admit I'm not big ballin in the slightest, so I want to make this trend more realistic for the everyday girl who may not be able to afford Sergio Rossi or Givenchy.

You might be wondering how you can pull this look off.  I understand that many people aren't going to completely immerse themselves in this look, but you can add pieces of neogothicism in your accessories.  The lace trend is still big and coincidentally, it's very easy to incorporate whatever lace items you have into this trend as well.

Look to celebs like Zoe Saldana, Rihanna in the Rated R era, Dita Von Teese, and lead singer Amy Lee from Evanescense for inspiration.
