Gothic prom dresses
If you are a goth girl looking for an alternative vamp look when pulling up to your local prom opt for high-style Gothic prom dresses. Also available in rich jewel tones, gothic prom dresses are often in stunning and elegant black lace. Many Gothic prom dresses are romantic in design and have lace-up bodices which can be lightly boned, with one side usually embellished with decoration such as feathers, flowers, beads or jewels.
Gothic prom dresses are opulent at every angle and have lace skirts lined with smooth satin and some have long lace trains for an extra ‘wow’ factor. To add a little drama, opt for a gothic style corset dress made from mixes of contrasting and tactile materials such as leather, lace, studs and pvc.
Other gothic style dresses include gothic skater style dresses with swing skirts which are made from a wide choice of fabrics from cotton jersey to sumptuous velvet, through to iridescent metallic meshes.
Many fashion fans of gothic dresses also appreciate the authentic Gothic styling seen in vintage inspired dresses. Many of these styles of gothic dress are modelled on the obligatory black of the Victorian Gothic look and feature lace up corsets, ruffles and burlesque style skirts.
Other gothic style dresses are made from softer, looser materials such as cotton and cotton mixes. These dresses can be worn as casual everyday wear and include sleeveless long gothic dresses with delicate, embroidered fronts to soft cotton frilled mini dresses, both perfect post-beach cover ups in the summer season.
