We clearly can’t get enough of the new gothic look, with plenty of stylish macabre elements, mixed in with dark occult style, making for a look that’s wonderfully black clad and mysterious. Alternative fashion has taken a turn towards the occult, making our wardrobes a little darker, but just as stylish!
Gothic style has always been impeccably stylish, but with this dark, occult driven twist on the classic goth look, we’re mixing our lush velvet’s up with inverted crosses, pentagrams and wonderfully macabre imagery, making for a dark alternative look that’s effortlessly stylish.
This look is all about the delightfully dark, taking a pinch of inspiration from 90’s alternative fashion, such as grunge, and mixing it up with gothic style, and a healthy dash of the occult. A base wardrobe of black is just as crucial to this look as the occult symbols and mysticism that adorns this style, so you can rest assured that your favourite staple pieces will fit in perfectly with the occult look.
The dark occult look can be pieced together perfectly with a base wardrobe of black, from crushed velvets, to dark denims and lycras, less about the layers than the bustling traditional gothic look, but still abundant with plenty of black clad attire. Think more leggings, mini skirts, crop tops, vest tops and long cardigans, layered up with plenty of accessories.
The key to any occult look of course is the symbolism, items are often emblazoned with mystical and occult symbols, from inverted crosses to pentagrams and skulls, taking as much influence from paganism as it does from cult classics like The Craft.
Complete your look in occult style with plenty of stylish accessories, items like body harnesses, chokers, floral crowns and rings are perfect for this look, layer them up for a stylish dark alternative look.
