LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 1, 2012) - Where there is light, there is dark. In stark contrast to the pretty pastels of spring and summer and the light floral prints and patterns that have shaped so much of the season, counter fashion has given birth to a range of gloomy and glamorous looks.
Following from summer's Grunge-Chic, fashion has mixed in a little Goth. New Look's current trend for studs and a look ahead to their Autumn 12/13 collection shows a decadent take on Goth-fashion. It is extremely appealing and not at all scary, with gorgeous gold skeleton rings and mohair sweaters adorned with studded crosses to team with a sweeping, floor-length black maxi dress.
New Look's Goth-fashion showcases an exciting wardrobe of black, embellished with studs and spikes to vamp up classic pieces like the Little Black Dress. The merging of this Goth-grunge look is fabulous fun to play with and easy to create. Crucifix logos are everywhere, with distressed mohair sweaters part of the palette of pieces that are part of this look.
A great place to look for ideas is New Look's NL Daily Blog. They display a range of their favourite products sourced from the very latest trends. Their black bandeau dress with studs and leather studded boots are high-impact pieces that are a little bit Punk and a little bit Goth, and make it high-street friendly, giving their customers the sartorial space to mix and match the styles with other items to conjure this romantic and alluring, Goth-Grunge look.
This Nouveau Goth look is something stylish fashion fans can take as far as they like. Opting for the full Black Widow look, with lace and black head-to-toe isn't for everyone. However, integrating the occasional gesture can create the desired effect. New Look's brown studded leather cuff or black twinkle diamante peep toe shoes step up a black dress with a dark edge.
It's certainly something to look forward to when the weather cools. Lurking in the shadows is a fashion well worth being in the spotlight.
