Today's post is all about what to wear to a Goth Club. Whether you are a regular at the club or planning your first trip- girl, we got you.
Goth, Industrial, EDM- it's about the music. We all need to get our KMFDM fix or a hear a classic Type 0 Negative song every once in a while. However, let’s be real. Only if you’re lucky might you hear something by the Cure (Ok, you might hear “Just Like Heaven”) on the radio every blue moon by accident. If you want to get your goth music fix, you need to visit a club.
The dark, the mysterious, the club atmosphere (because who is going to throw a goth/ industrial party and not have the perfect setting to get lit up) ... it’s all great.
It’s the Clothes
You know what I’m talking about. Expression. Being whoever you feel like for a night and not giving a crapola what anyone thinks about. Even though, of course you want to kill it and look amazing.
Which is why I curated a collection for your choosing. By the end of this post you will be able to pull something together at the drop of a top hat. This way, the next time you're going to some underground party in the middle of Florida- you’re the one getting all the attention. You’re welcome.
Black is the New Black
You can never go wrong with wearing black. Does it make you look thinner? Maybe. Does it make you look totally goth princess? Yes. Yes, it does. Here’s some black corsets to start you off.
This peek-a-boo black faux leather overbust corset is fantastic. Perfect for clubbing, since it’s a tad too revealing for the office with those hot cut-outs on the abdomen. Also features a modesty panel on the back.
If this one didn’t strike your fancy, or maybe you’re looking for something a bit more industrial- definitely consider a corset with buckles.
This piece is an overbust corset, the front zipper is complimented by the metal. Because you already have the adornment, via the front buckles, if you don't feel like wearing heavy accessories you can definitely get away with a little less. FYI- it does come with the garters but if not a fan, they're removable.
Throw on a mini, a pair of leggings or a combo of both and you’re good to go dance yourself silly.
The Sexiest Halter Top. Ever.
Now onto my favorite corset of the week. This black beauty is perfect. You get the support and shape of a corset with a serious bad-girl edgy haltered collar. Gorgeous. A little bit Elvira Mistress of the Dark, a little S&M.
I would be doing you a disservice if I didn't show you the heavy cord lacing and how good this one looks from the back.
You are going to love the way you look in this number. I suggest pairing with your sexiest, highest heels for ultimate prowess effect.
The Perfect Bottom
Now that we have looked at a few corset options, let’s talk about the perfect bottom. No! Not that kind of bottom, silly! Your outfit! Most club wear defaults to a skirt. I’ve going to show you three.
First up, the black organza petticoat. Is it goth? It sure it. It is short? You betcha’!
The goth industrial scene is one of the few places in life where a skirt like this is not only appropriate, but almost required. Consider investing in one to keep around as your “go to” backup piece. Never know when an underground party invite might come your way.
Our next skirt is a little slinkier and sleek.
The black satin skirt. Classic, beautiful, and really, really, comfortable. Pair with any corset top.
Recipe for Sexy-Gothic Success
If you still aren’t sure exactly how to put your outfit together, here is a recipe to help you out:
Think morbid, but not sad. More “tragically-beautiful disaster”. Mix in a little steampunk, a dash of cosplay and a sprinkle of old-school raver wear and your perfect industrial outfit is ready to get cooking.
The Perfect Dress
Want a one-and-done outfit? Try a dress.
This first dress is an illusion. Looks like a dress, but actually - it's an overbust corset top and matching skirt combo.
I know! Amazing, right? That means when you choose this outfit, you are actually getting 3- since you can always mix and match the pieces for another night of debauchery.
Can we just talk about the metal spikes for a minute? Because I'll tell you what; every guy at that club will be talking about them- and how good they look on you, all night.
Dress number 2. Again, not a dress. Well, not exactly. This is goth we are talking about! Remember? Nothing is what it seems.
Do these overbust corsets have skirts attached to them technically making them a dress? Yes. Is the skirt totally transparent? Yeah...but double up on a pair of colored stockings and fishnets and this NSFW but perfect for goth club attire is ready to go.
Never underestimate the power of wetlook patent leather. Is your industrial party a little more on the 50 Shades of Gray side? Then this is your gal. The steal front closures only lead halfway down this dress. You can lace the bottom as high as you wish. Corset back - oh, and a matching g-string.
Wear this one, and you are guaranteed a few free drink. By the way, this one is an actual dress.
I said I would only show you three dresses, but remember, Goth is unpredictable.
This next dress is a bodycon that will accentuate all the right places. The collared neck screams, "I do what I want". Don't be afraid to glam this one up even more with some heavy accessories.
One more mini dress, for good luck.
This plaid mini features black PVC panels on the sides to carve out the perfect silhouette. A little bit punk, a lot bit naughty school girl. Goth it up further with fishnets and heavy metal accessories.
You can never go wrong with skulls and bones. This necklace will sit right above the awesome cleavage you will be rocking once you choose the perfect corset.
Other accessories choices- anything metal, heavy clunky bracelets, spiky rings. Choose your favorite and wear as many or as few as your Gothic heart desires.
The hair ventures back into anything goes territory. Anything, that is, except trying to look like Gwyneth Paltrow or another refined woman. Pinup style, anime inspired, bright colors, micro-bangs. All appropriate and appreciated.
When it comes to makeup- think, more. Go all out with fantasy eyes and don't be afraid to check out Pinterest for some inspiration.
Are you ready to go out now? I hope so! If you are still unsure about what to wear, have questions about sizing, or one of the pieces shown here today- email us firstname.lastname@example.org
