Women's Gothic Winter Coats

Now that the weather is bitterly cold and wet it's time to pick a Winter coat to be your new best friend to keep you snug until spring appears, we have a great selection of coats to choose from at The Gothic Shop.

As shown in the image above from left to right, the Lilianne is an elegant velvet fishtail coat that has lots of mysterious character to transform any outfit in seconds. This exquisite Sinister creation forms a gorgeous silhouette with flared sleeves, brocade trimming and frog fastenings.

In luxurious black velvet, we simply can't resist this Crazy Doll coat, as you wrap yourself up in style with layers, princess seams, black lace and large buttons.

You are going to find every excuse you can to head outside in this Angeline Black Coat, featuring a high faux-fur collar and black crocheted lace frill and bow, plus cuffs trimmed with fur.  The shape is extremely flattering, tailored in at the waist with a slight flare to the knee which works with any shape.

We love a dynamic statement coat, and this woollen Military coat is both feminine and chic. A style to see you through many seasons.

Finally, you will look super cute in the Sarah Jane hooded coat, with faux fur collar, hem and cuffs,fluffy pompoms and adjustable ribbon lacing detail at the back to give you the perfect fit.  It definitely is one of our Hell Bunny favourites.

Chic Chokers at The Gothic Shop

If there is one piece of jewellery that is essential for your jewellery box- it's the Choker! These versatile pieces of body adornment will see you from the dark winter months right through to the long summer days. What is it about them that is so special? The wide ranges that they are available in means that there is a choker style that will suit any shape. They do a magnificent job of highlighting the neck areas while looking fabulous. They are snug to wear too, unlike the longer flapper necklaces that are available, the choker is designed to hold tightly to the neck. Timeless and classical in their appeal, the choker is a style of necklace that will never be unfashionable.

Looking for the right chic choker to accent your seasonal outfit? The Gothic Shop have a superb array of those tightly fitted necklaces ready to wear. Here are just a few from the collection!

Black metal Venetian choker and tiara
To say that the Black Metal Venetian Choker is elegant is a total understatement! Everything about it is decadent including the finer details. The links are almost invisible making this chain look as if it's floating. This piece is versatile enough to be worn with anything, and doubles up as a tiara too! A statement piece all in itself, you will certainly wow any audience wearing this very classy piece. Look closely and the sparkly rhinestones will only add class to the overall effect. This is dressy drama at it's best for any season, team this with a sleeveless gown and bring effortless chic for that winter soiree.

Black Dahlia Black Lace Choker by Alchemy Gothic 
Team the traditional black choker with a touch of the alternative and one will have the Black Dahlia Lace Choker by Alchemy Gothic. This delicate but statement piece comes complete with crocheted and skull details as well as the big Dahlia flower at the centre. Hanging beads with silver skulls just finish off this lovely neck piece. Use it to dress up the more mundane of everyday outfits, alternatively this is the ultimate statement piece for that club! A darkly decadent piece that works beautifully with any special occasional gown as well as toned down Gothic outfit.

Leather Fleur De Lys Posture Collar by Prong. Modelled by Dark Morte 
There certainly is something about the posture collar that finishes off a look completely. The Leather Fleur De Lys Posture Collar by Prong is no exception. This piece of posture wear really does add all things elegant to any outfit. Like the other chokers at The Gothic Shop, this piece is ultra-dramatic. The details on this neck piece are truly exquisite, from the double Fleur De Lys studs to the blood red rhinestones and pearl droplets. The giant faceted Onyx stone set in a silver filigree setting brings this choker to life! It's adjustable fastening means that it will fit most sizes of neck. The perfect piece to finish off that Gothic prom dress.

It's All About the Eyes

We all know the saying ' the eyes are the window into our soul'. Our eyes are very complicated and amazing constantly transmitting information and emotions. So with that in mind you might consider contact lenses as a 'black out' blind to the soul, a dramatic accessory that will create a truly striking effect in the world around you.

Captivate all with XtremeEyez edgy contact lenses which include a Total Black Out Lense which covers the iris for a rather intimidating result or a Cyber Robot lense for a futuristic feel which features metallic silver and red mesh in the middle.

There is certainly something for everyone, be it the classic Vampire eye which is hypnotic and sinister all rolled into one or these werewolf wild glowing eyes of the night conjuring up images of beasts hunting their prey.

If you prefer something a little more psychotic then spirals or webs should do the trick, while Horror movie fans are in for a treat as there are an exciting range of lenses including Harry Potter and Twilight.

There are different life span options of the contact lenses as long as they are kept in solution:
1 Day - £8.95 per pair
1 Month - £12.95 per pair
3 Months - £15.95 per pair
12 months - £21.95 per pair

We also carry Alchemy Gothic contact lenses which include a bewitching Skull, Poison Spider, Blood Shot and, Vampire Moon graphics which once opened last for 12 months only £19.95 each.
