30 Examples of Refined Goth Fashion

From Gothic Ballerina Editorials to Somber Schoolgirl Catalogs

— February 27, 2015 — Fashion
These refined examples of goth fashion include sophisticated editorials and runway presentations that draw inspiration from vintage themes. After a recent focus on alternative and expressive styling, designers are elevating their goth fashion inspiration to a more refined and elegant place.

While Seapunk, raver and Health Goth aesthetics dominated the style sphere a few seasons ago, newly introduced goth fashions are more focused on vampy and witchy references. When compared to the over-the-top looks from the past year, today's goth is more understated, wearing little to no makeup and keeping their hair slicked back or sharply cut.

Fashion labels like Giles, Erdem and Amanda deLeon are taking their dark inspiration to new heights and are proving that edgy clothes can be elegant rather than purely theatrical.
