One of the biggest issues that Goth people face in their lifestyle is the fact that it’s really difficult to keep their style integral in summer time.
On the one hand, if we think that Gothic style is associated with white pale skin, clothes such as velvet dresses, Victorian coats or leather jackets always combined with heavy boots, this option is totally true. All those elements are the main characteristics of gothic style, so how can you be Goth without them?
In my opinion, all these thoughts about what it is considered to be Goth and what it isn’t are totally bullshit. What does it mean you can NOT be “gothic enough” in summer? Why Goth people should “hate” the most amazing season of the year. The months that you can spend a whole day on beach, relaxing and drinking your cocktail or just take a dive in the sea. I really love the summer and the fact that my style is gothic can’t change my mind.
I have sucked of hearing people into Goth community say:
“Oh man, summer is getting on my nerves! I prefer winter much more” and know the same time that they are pretending and lying because an “original Goth” MUST hate the summer!
There’s no point in frustrating about a season of the year because you can wear what you love most. There are gothic clothes for summer; you can still cool and just have fun! Keep calm my gothic friend!
Gothic under 35+ degrees
If you still wonder of how you can keep your gothic style in summer I am here to give you some tips, but first of all I have a question for you:
I would like you to think of how many sleeveless, tanks or tees have you ever seen on well known gothic brands such as Disturbia or Killstar website?
Really a lot!
These clothes are the perfect proof that a style can’t be limited due to a season of a year. If you are truly represented by gothic style you can’t be less gothic because of tanning or because of you don’t wear a velvet coat for example, you can’t lose your style character, lifestyle and aesthetic because of the summer! It’s a totally wrong opinion that some “original” stylish people have invent in order to make you feel bad about yourself.
