The Goth look is back and it is totally glam. The updated Goth look is stylish, sexy and for every girl – whether you’re living a goth lifestyle or not. Think all black, dark make-up and a lot of chokers. These are the pieces you need to let out your inner Glam Goth.

Remember Avril Lavigne, old school Kelly Osbourne and Taylor Momsen? The queens of Goth. These days Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson, Kat Von D and WWE’s Paige have embraced the dark side with this style.

Get your fishnet tights and black eyeliner ready: here’s what you need to rock the Glam Goth look:

Goth-line bling

The choker is the Glam Goth must-have accessory. Then add a few black leather pieces, skulls, snakes, spikes and studs are the type of accessories, which are the cornerstone of this trend.

The final touches

Dark lipstick and a smokey eye add a dramatic finish to the Goth look but what you really need are boots.

Black leather ankle boots (flats or heels) are a Glam Goth staple. Any additional accessories must be black and leather. Stockings are also a necessity for pulling off this trend, however ripping them is optional.
