You can achieve a modern goth look by wearing black as your main outfit color. Fill your closet with different options of black apparel so you can switch it up based on the weather and occasion. It’s a classic and timeless way to ensure your appearance is on point. It still remains a staple for getting the gothic look right. You can then use it as your base and add other items and pieces based on this foundation. You’ll be edgy and eye-catching while still not looking too outlandish because the color black is always in when it comes to fashion.

Embellish with Jewelry

You can achieve a modern goth look with the right jewelry. Use it to embellish your outfit and add some personal style to your look. Consider magick jewelry as one option when you’re shopping around. One thing about occult symbols is that they all have meaning. There are a variety of pieces and items to choose from based on what you want to channel and how flashy you want it to be. You might also want to get more piercings if you want more jewelry to show off and enjoy the look of it on your face and body. Tattoos might be another consideration to add to your list of possibilities if you’re going for a modern goth appearance.

Update Your Footwear
