Tailored to Fit at The Gothic Shop

Trends will come and go, but tailored tails and top hats are here to stay. There is something about the small but important details that can be found in a quality coat, dress or blouse. The sewn in seams and corseted waistlines will give you a figure to die for instantly. 

But is this retro look one that can work today? Well fitting gowns were hot enough for Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe during Hollywood's golden era, and they are just as smokin' today. Tailored blouses will give you the nip in the waist that's needed for that cinched in look. Well stitched jackets with flared tails are super flattering on the waistline too. The real statement is in the finer details at The Gothic Shop this season...

Beaded Black Velvet Corseted Tailcoat Jacket by RQBL

There is something majestic about a well made tailed jacket, it's a style that can instantly inject a dose of the Victorian to one's look. However, this beautiful jacket also brings you a glamorous dose of the present in one pretty package! With all things vintage being at the forefront, this is a must have for your wardrobe. The corseted waist will take away the inches, fastening the front buttons will give you an instant hourglass figure to envy. The velvet tails on the coat are laced with a fine frill, light enough to hang in a super flattering dress-like fashion around the waist. Everything from the beautifully beaded shoulders to sleeves make this just one of the most elegant new additions at The Gothic Shop this week.    

Selena Mini Gothic Dress by Hell Bunny

It's the exclusive shrug detail at the neckline that catches the eye along with the pussy bow tie for a hint of the vintage. The frilled lace detailing on the dress is hot for the season, so this dress really does tick all the trend boxes. Turn heads with this gorgeous dress, team it with your best heels and a lady like up do for maximum effect!
