Halloween is Banned!

The big day is getting closer, one of the highlights of our calender here at The Gothic Shop is the 31st of October! Halloween will be here sooner than we think after all it is only a month away!
Most of us will have amazing parties or spooky events to go to, but even if you don't there's no need to feel left out of the celebrations! Gothic Fashion is very much on the cards this winter with skull and crossbones motifs found everywhere, but we know skulls are not just for Halloween and can be worn all year round!

The Gothic Shop have just restocked on Banned clothing and accessories- a brand that takes Goth style, along with punk, steam punk and retro aspects and makes them wearable everyday. But there are pieces in the Banned collection that I have fallen head over heels in love with - as I am sure you will too!

While Banned have some pretty amazing accessories and t-shirts this week it is the frocks that seem to have caught my eye! The Gothic Shop team have restocked some of the Banned dresses on the website- newly listed and just in time for Samhain too. The Banned range is totally adorable! You can find those spookily themed dresses made from fabrics that are ever so flattering on your figure, wear any one of the fabulous frocks from the Banned range and you will be onto a winner!
Brown and Black Stripe Steampunk Victorian Dress by Banned  £52.50
Love anything Steampunk? Well Banned have the quintessential dress for you! This gown has all the required characteristics and more! You have the Victorian stripes in the very Gothic black and brown shades on a lush full length gown, a corset style fitted bodice with cute front fastening. I adore the pretty frilled high collar which fits like a half shrug around the shoulders. Everything about this gown is lavish and lush! Try teaming with any of the cameo and Victoriana inspired accessories from The Gothic Shop.

Frankenstein Monster and Bride Vampire Mini Dress by Banned £22.50 
At the other end of the spooky style spectrum it this quirky little retro number from Banned. You could always opt for any of Banned's great range of 1950's Space age and Zombie inspired mini dresses. This ghoulishly gorgeous gown is really something: Think the Jetsons meets the Bride of Frankenstein! The very cute comic inspired print makes for a very eye-catching print, with the neon being perfect for that Halloween knees up! Whether you decide to wear with that oversized flower hair accessories or bright fish net stockings  you will turn heads! (hopefully not in a 'zombie' way!)

Glow in the Dark Skeleton Dress by Banned £23.50
Want to be scary but stylish? Look no further than Banned's Glow in the Dark Skeleton Dress! This is the epitome of the Halloween dress but only with added bags of style! In a body hugging elastane jersey fabric the skeleton really does 'glow green in the dark!' With two looks in one it's the absolute perfect trick or treating outfit!
