Viv is wearing a pair of fishnet tights and a petticoat, a Blue Banana clasp belt and New Rock boots to complete this winter look. For extra warmth, we would recommend adding a cropped biker jacket for a touch of punk or a vintage swing coat for a traditional retro vibe.

Fight those January blues with our Bleeding Heart colourful print dresses.

If you’re looking for something a little more witchy and understated then check out the Misty Moon Dress from Hell Bunny. This velvet piece is complete with long sleeves and a sparkly moon print.

Knitwear

Knitwear is an obvious option for a winter outfit. Elevate your wardrobe with one of our stylish gothic jumpers and add some edge to your look.

Embrace a Kawaii aesthetic this winter with our Haru Cat Jumpers from Banned. Available in pink and black, these tops feature a cute cat design on the front and back. Kawaii Goth fashion is a rising trend in 2024 and we’re sure to see a lot more pastel outfits hitting the streets. Viv’s Kawaii Goth outfit is complete with the Jawbreaker Venom Trousers and chain accessories.

Stripes are in this winter so add our colourful knitwear to your collection. The Intarsia Jumper from Jawbreaker is a great choice for a subtle stripe.

Winter Boots

Now it’s time to talk about footwear. Once you’ve chosen your gothic jumper or dress, the fun really begins by choosing a pair of boots or shoes to complete your style. Viv is on hand to show you how to incorporate a pair of Dr Martens or New Rocks into your looks.

The New Rock Tower Shoes are a fan favourite within the Goth community and they are perfectly versatile enough to pair with any outfit. Viv has opted for fishnet tights and knee-high socks to go with this alternative winter outfit. We love this cute-meets-grunge aesthetic and we think the platform shoes add that extra touch.

New Rock boots can easily go with an alternative dress. Check out the New Rock Trail Boots with this Bleeding Heart Cherry Print Dress. These gothic high heels are elegant enough to pair with a stunning fit and flare dress such as this. 

If New Rocks aren’t your vibe then don’t worry; check out these Dr Martens boots with some of our favourite dresses.

The Finishing Touches

Now that you have the basis of your outfit, it’s time to add the finishing touches to your look. We’re talking coats, accessories and bags to complete your ensemble. 

If there’s one thing we can guarantee in winter it’s the cold and rainy weather. It’s best to be prepared for the season ahead so a coat or jacket is necessary for your wardrobe. Luckily, we have plenty of styles available to choose from when it comes to jackets and coats. Match your retro vibe with one of our exclusive Bleeding Heart Coats or go gothic with a Poizen Industries or Vixxsin jacket. 

Head over to our accessories section for gothic jewellery such as necklaces and rings as well as belts and harnesses. Our handbag section is also full of funky designs to make the perfect accompaniment to your outfit.
