Whether you are a confirmed dark angel who has worn nothing but black since childhood, or you are just looking for a few pieces of edgy apparel for the winter season, gothic fashion is well worth checking out.

Dark burgundy lipstick and a dramatic smokey eye makeup accompany the strong and hard-core sexy style of a Gothic Goddess. Wearing a floor-length velvet cape in storm-cloud colours with a leather, lace and sheer design underneath, she exudes the aura of mystery mixed with a moody, romantic vibe. The sophisticated goth walked languidly down the runway of Versace and Gucci in a sexy but still classy new way with a crucifix motif on her breasts.

This alternative, underground style has worked its way into a number of mainstream shops this season, and there are of course many other specialist goth retailers, selling everything from stacked boots to sexy stockings. If you want to add a touch of the macabre to your wardrobe, keep your eyes peeled for the following items:

Stacked heels

Veiled beanies

This is a twist on the classic veiled hat, which you might see in a film noir movie or at a dressy funeral. The woolly hat version is an ideal winter warmer with consummate gothic style. That is why these accessories have been flying off shelves in the high end stores that are selling them, such as Liberty and Selfridges. Staying warm does not mean you have to compromise on looking fabulous and that has never been more evident than with these quirky, dark veiled beanies.
