69 Fantastic Gothic Fashions

From Studded Loafers to Spiked Winter Gloves

— September 4, 2009 — Fashion
Brooding, dark, and often times unequivocally sexy, Gothic culture has influenced fashion and design in many ways. From nail polish and perfume to photography and men's ties, you are seeing Goth fashions everywhere. Check out the slideshow below for some mysterious and captivating Goth trends--they might even inspire you to start dabbling with thick black eyeliner.

Implications - Goth looks amongst other fashion styles have become more trendy with the evolution of self-expression. Clothing used to be considered as a way to flaunt the wearer's wealth and social status in the past; however, in today's society, style is a way for the wearer to express their personalities. They want to flaunt their inner persona in an attempt to fit in while maintaining their individuality.
