Like 80s industrial band Ministry, for us, everyday is Halloween. And for fall, the runways were singing the same tune.
Storm-cloud colors, crucifix motifs and a lithe silhouette lent themselves to a moody, gothic vibe. Leather, lace and sheer, red wine-stain lipstick, were all over the runways at Versace, Givenchy and Valentino, to name a few.
The new gothic look is a far cry from your average teenage angster. The look is richly moody and mysterious while being effortlessly sophisticated. Go for a deep onyx and oxblood color palette with layered lace, leather, studded and velvet textures.
This outfit makes a perfect alternative to a costume, or just your everyday is Halloween look. Your choice.
