The Newest Sinister 2015 Collection- Part 2

Following on from Part 1, next in line is a gorgeous matching set known as the Zaynab set. The blouse features corset lacing at the front and gives a very feminine silhouette. The neckline, cuffs and hem are trimmed in beautiful lace. The most dramatic part of the blouse are definitely the super long lace sleeves. The matching skirt is of a "fishtail" style. It is tight from the hips to the knees and then flares to the ground, this part is lined in satin and has a lace overlay. This outfit is perfect for an elegant night out or for a special occasion.

Tabitha Blouse - Lady Macbeth - Sumea Sjenar

Ladies, if you are looking for a classic Gothic blouse which can be paired with ANY skirt or trousers, the Tabitha blouse from Pentagramme is it! This particular top reminds me of Morticia Addams as it is very figure-hugging and has bell sleeves. It goes perfectly under any corset, especially underbust ones. It is very comfortable to wear, the lace doesn't scratch or itch. :) That is always a plus as I find it sometimes difficult to find good quality lace blouses.

Skirts by Chic Star from The Gothic Shop

Autumn is finally here and it is time to get those long, elegant Gothic skirts out of the closet. I am not talking about lightweight, flowy skirts which are suitable for Summer but about stylish Gothic skirts which inevitably makes us step back in time, if even for a while. Chic Star is a versatile brand which features Gothic designs for ladies who wish to clad themselves in aristocratic and elegant attire, suitable for anyone in sizes uk8-30. If you are a working lady and need some classic yet elegant items to add to your Corp-Goth attire, you won't go wrong with this brand.

Chic Star has some of the most gorgeous Gothic skirts around and they specialise in mermaid/fishtail-style skirts made from different materials and adorned with corset-style lacing or ruffles and lace frills! The mermaid design resembles the tail of a mermaid. The skirts are tight down to the knees and then flow in a full circle to the ground. One might call these "Morticia" skirts since it was the preferred style of this much-loved Gothic character.
