Goth is a term usually associated with teenagers who listen to Mariyln Manson. Glamour Goth however (otherwise known as Gloth) is the chic version of this look. Opting for heels instead of heavy boots and no piercings is a good way to give the goth look a glamorous touch. The look is generally made up of black, lace with a spash of gold or red. It’s a high fashion look that can be pulled off but will always be mocked by a few. Some would laugh at having Morticia Addams as a style icon but wear the look well and with confidence and people who understand fashion will approve. As one gets older then the more difficult the look is to pull off; there is generally an age limit to wearing black lipstick! However, a chic black dress and fur is always going to work. It’s easiest to wear this look of an evening but to take it through to day time simply throw a bit of grunge in and take Elle’s Kate Lanphear for inspiration. The Olsen twins push this look as far as possible so let them inspire you but unless you’re seriously fashion savvy don’t push your look; being mistaken for a witch is not good!
