Gothcore Glamour: Embrace the Romantic Goth Trend

A celebration of the dark and the macabre, goth fashion is rooted in a subculture that originated in the late 1970s and early 1980s. While most of us are familiar with traditional goth fashion elements like all black, lace, leather, and studs, the look is evolving in 2023 to include an element of romanticism.

Also known as gothcore, the romantic goth style is replete with bold colors, ruffles, bows and lace trims along with dark florals that seamlessly blend the allure of gothic aesthetics with more romantic and delicate motifs. This killer combination creates a Wednesday-Addams inspired look best described as “dark romance.”

Floral goth aesthetic is also on the rise, so watch for flower prints with black and other dark colors for a very Victorian vibe — after all, Queen Vicky herself wore black almost exclusively for over 40 years. Her era also ushered in a floral craze in fashion, decorating and gardening that never really left.

Interestingly, the current shift towards darker aesthetics could be seen as a reaction to the bright colors and eye-catching maximalism that exploded during the uncertain times of the pandemic. After all, fashion trends are often cyclical, with new aesthetics popping up to contrast with trends that have become over-saturated or played out.

This season, we’re excited to help you express your sweeter goth side with our collection of goth socks. The Goth Witch Ballet Slipper knee highs with their witchy color palette and elegant bow motif are perfect for those wanting to channel a darkly whimsical look this season.

Another fantastical sock to help nail this aesthetic are the Death’s Head Moth Crew Socks. The moth, often associated with darkness and mystery because of its skull-like markings, ties perfectly into the gothic theme. Meanwhile, the intricacy of the design adds a level of sophistication and beauty, tying into the romantic aspect of the trend. Let your style echo the dark fairytales and fashions of yesteryear with the perfect pair of socks.

Red Alert: This Season’s Hottest Color Trend

A color that exudes confidence and spontaneity, red is taking center stage in the fall/winter season, with variations from fiery red to deep cherry shades stealing the style spotlight. The Pantone Color of the Year, Viva Magenta, also plays into this trend, offering a shade of red as deep and classic as a bright red lip.

This shift towards deeper, richer tones signifies a transition from the light-hearted summer trends of Barbie Pink and the bright tomato-red that inspired the tomato girl summer trend, to a more mature, passionate aesthetic for the colder months.

Sweater Weather? How About Sock Weather!

As the leaves start to fall and the air turns crisp, it’s clear that sweater weather is upon us once again. Cozy knit sweaters have always been a staple in cold weather wardrobes.
