Get ready for a sensational summer at The Gothic Shop

It's always exciting to see the new additions to the The Gothic Shop as they come in. The fresh and fabulous new lines are fantastic new additions to the great range already available online. Well this week's new pieces have been no exception. Whether it is a hint of a sultry spring time style for your wardrobe or a fresh new look altogether, look no further than our new arrivals at The Gothic Shop!

Asymmetrical Black Lace Shrug by RQBL

Shrugs are just one of those accessories that seem to always be in demand, no matter what time of year it happens to be. They come in handy during the transitional months for cool evenings spent out on the veranda with that glass of wine. However, it's these quirky cardigan-like tops that can make a real statement. Check out the Asymmetrical Black Lace Shrug by RQBL, fresh in at The Gothic Shop. Fastened with a snug choker at the neck, this piece sits on the left side of the body. It comes complete with elegant ruffles, feathers as well as a dainty lace material making it ideal to wear in the warmer months. The decadent combination of materials give it the feel of a perfect party piece, alternatively use it to spruce up a plain t-shirt this summer. 

Red and Black Goth Rock Witchy Hem Torn Skirt by RQBL
Black and blood red is an all time classical combination when it comes to fashion. The Red and Black Goth Rock Witchy Hem Torn Skirt makes good use of these strong shades and more in one complete package. Flouncy with plenty of volume, you will find this skirt is figure flattering on all shapes. It's free size at the waist so there is no struggling with fiddly zips or fastenings when putting it on. It's the finer details that stand out and make this piece something special also. There are layers of cotton, mesh and tulle materials that fall together in harmony. The delicate frilled edges make up the asymmetric finish of the layers, finishing off the overall effect nicely.

Medusa Asummetrical Black Gothic Skirt by Punk Rave 

Looking for something that will really make you stand out at that party or get together? The very dressy Medusa Summetrical Black Gothic Skirt will do just this. It's the tailored detailing as well as the very unique hemline which make this a must have skirt for the summer months. Short at the centre front and back, the ends boast a bold draped feature that will not fail to be noticed. Not only do the longer sides look chic but they also give the impression of having long sleek legs. Wear with a corset top or sleek blouse for an instant impact at that Cocktail party or club. All in all, the Medusa skirt from Punk Rave is the epitome of elegance no matter how it is worn.

The Gothic Shop have some of the most dramatic and sensational pieces that will make your spring and summer style one to remember!
