The Ultimate Style Guide: Romantic Goth

Are you a goth who longs for a simpler time with more extravagant clothing? Do you love the arts, music and yearn for literature from the 1800’s? Do you spend your days lost in deep thoughts and daydreams? It sounds like you are a Romantic goth!

What exactly is a Romantic Goth? A Romantic Goth is one of the classic types of goth fashion - often one who loves all things Victorian, creative and of course dark romance. Romantic Goth styles surged in the 80-90’s thanks to the legendary bands Bauhaus, Type O Negative and the Cure. Romantic Goths are one of the most commonly betrayed types of goth in mainstream media - although they rarely get the romanticism fashion vibes right.

We’ve put together the go-to looks! From the classics styles to some modern takes - have a read and let us know which look is most suited to you?
