It's not all Black, colour combinations for Goths!

We adore deep rich blues, purples, reds, greens and golds teamed with black lace, satin and velvet for their elegance and drama it adds to your outfit. Whether you are looking for a quick change in style to romance, hippy or Victorian beauty start adding gothic colours to your closet and begin an exciting clothing adventure.

If you have a special occasion coming up then why not try a green or purple floor length organza skirt combined with a lace-up corset. This look oozes sophistication and has a very romantic feel with the soft chic flow of the ruffles and satin.

Who needs a little black dress to go with your new colour investment? Hands up for this Black Lace Pagan Dress, inspired from the 1800's with flared sleeves, lace up front and layered witchy skirt. This dress is seductive and alluring in full black lace which can be worn alone and accessorised or over a coloured petticoat.

For a simple splash of colour we have these gorgeous flowing Hippy Mesh skirts in purple, red and green with floral lace and fine mesh panels embroidered and adorned with sequins, the underskirt is tie-dyed in a mix of black and colour.  Also in available are the Fine Mesh Skirts with floaty 3 tiered witch points and tie-dyed skirts.

Show off your best assets with this Isis Gothic Hippy  dress by Dark Star with a tie-dyed velvet bodice and black ribbon lace-up while the skirt is flowing and feminine with embroidered detail and black braiding.

Alvira Lace Gothic Prom Dress by Sinister 
Not only do we love the warm hazy evenings of summer, but it is also prom season! That one night when your outfit needs to be perfect! Even if you don't happen to be going to your very own prom night there's nothing stopping one from getting that romantic look. 'Dressy' and 'extravagant' are just two words that describe the prom dress, great qualities that you will find in the Alvira dress by Sinister. The corseted top and flowing lace upper on the dress bring structure. It's the finer details that make a real impact too, the puffed shoulders and little black roses are feminine to their core. If it's a statement one is looking to make this summer- the Alvira Lace Gothic Prom Dress by Sinister is a must.  

Anatomy Lace Side Dress by Hell Bunny
Fun and funky is also the way to go this summer when it comes to dresses. The Anatomy Lace Side Dress is just the thing to see you through all the season's events and then some! It's unique print stands out a mile, the devil really is in the detail with the x-ray green colour. It's just delicate enough to suit any occasion, wear your Anatomy Lace Side Dress to any relaxed evening get together. Alternatively add a twist to the more formal events with the quirky anatomical print. The dress is well fitted with a pinched in waist and flared skirt so reminiscent of fifties fashion. Team this cute little number with a pair of heels and a splash of lippy and you are ready to face anything that the next few months brings your way.

So we all know that a fitted bodice can do wonders on all shapes and sizes, not to mention being super flattering at the same time. To get that longed for silhouette, why not opt for the Black Cotton and Lace Bodice Gothic Halter Dress at The Gothic Shop? Tied in a big bow at the neck, the upper part of this outfit is tailored to fit beautifully. The ruffles at the bust emphasize a more curvaceous form, as does the flared skirt that falls playfully below. There's also the option to tighten the dress at the waist with the laced sides for a unique fitted look. All in all a superb outfit that will work equally as well at a picnic as it would on the beach.
