Cosy cardigans at The Gothic Shop

Halloween season is creeping up upon us as we speak! The days are getting darker and the cold is setting in. This might sound like the opening lines to a spooky story but it is in fact true. This is our favourite time of year, mostly because we can start to pull out all those stylish bits of knitwear that have been stashed away for the summer.

What do you love about your cardigans or sweaters? Do you love them to fit you in all the right places as they keep you warm? Are you a fan of frills and the finer details on them? Perhaps fun and quirky motifs are your thing when it comes to winter woollies? For fashionable flair as well as warmth look no further than The Gothic Shop. Here are just a selection of the decadent day and evening knitwear pieces to be found in our new arrivals!  

Paloma Green Cardigan by Hell Bunny 
Style meets the practical with this vibrant green cardigan. A world away from those funky Christmas jumpers that granny knitted for us way back when, but there are no Santa's in sight here thank goodness! It's stunning when worn as it hugs all those curves. It's no surprise as it is made from a combination of Rayon, Nylon and Spandex. Deeper block colours are just so fabulous for the darker months- The Paloma Green cardigan is the perfect way to dress up any outfit! This design is available in a sharp pillar box red and a sultry black too.

Vampire and Bats cardigan by Hell Bunny

Sticking with the theme of 'figure flattering' and we have the Vampire and Bats cardigan from Hell Bunny. You just can't get sleeker than this, all black with some chic motifs added for good measure. Like above this cardigan too is made from a variety of comfortable and flattering fabrics. But with this top it's the sweet but scary details that count. Take a peek at the bats on the sleeves as well as the vampiress applique design that's set right over your heart! All this is finished off with the cute shiny crimson red buttons that could be droplets of blood!  

Doomed Green Skeleton Hand Cardigan by Hell Bunny
He's behind you! Even if you are too scared to look round no doubt there will be plenty of admirers giving you a second glace in this sexy little number! The darkest black is highlighted with bright green buttons at the front. It's 'less is more' with this design, two distinctively skeletal hands grab your shoulders tightly! Take a look at the sleeves too, and in true Hell Bunny style we see the cutest winged eyeball motifs. The only way to wrap up this winter if zombie green and creepy cool is your thing!   

Take a look at the rest of the Hell Bunny cardigan collection as well as the huge range of bolero's and long sleeved tops ready to keep you warm during autumn and winter at The Gothic Shop.
