Gothic Victorian clothing captures the beauty and complexity of Victorian culture. However, the modern trend adds a dark twist to the rather conservative fashion style. Here’s how you can get your hands on some of these clothing.
Gothic Victorian is a sub-genre of Goth or Gothic style that dwells on tragic romance, the human mind, and the fantasy realm of nightmares. However, not all instances of this style are dark. Clothing can be white, pink or soft blue. These colors represent the innocence of the soul.
To take the look a step further, there are even Gothic Victorian wedding dresses and they’re just as stunning as the traditional wedding gowns.
The style has been described as a “profusion of black velvets, lace, fishnets, and leather tinged with scarlet or purple, accessorized with tightly laced corsets, gloves, precarious stilettos and silver jewelry depicting religious or occult themes”
