Inspiration: Punk Goth

2

October is all about getting in touch with the dark arts, ghosts, witches and other such spooks. Need help figuring out how to embrace your gothic edge? Here is some punk goth inspiration to make planning your pre-Halloween outfits super simple and stylish.

Boots Made for Talking

Jeffrey Campbell BootsThere is nothing more chic in goth attire than a big chunky boot. These Jeffrey Campbell shoes take gothic-wear to the next level with their fur and bead embellishments. And the quilted upper on the fur boot adds a luxurious little detail.

Prince of Darkness

Rick Owens Gothic Pieces

Rick Owens FW 2013

Rick Owens is the prince of dark fashion, but his gothic couture pieces resonate with everyone. He isn’t afraid of going against fashion protocol, as seen in his SS 2014 show in Paris!

Belgian designer, Ann Demeulemeester is known for her dark avant-garde pieces that are all about asymmetry and a dash of androgyny. She prefers using monochromatic palettes, and black is her shade of choice.

Rock Royalty

Balmain Fall 2012 Embellished Jacket

Be punk goth royalty in this exquisitely embellished Balmain jacket. With all of the rhinestones and pearls available in our store, we wouldn’t be surprised if the designers at Balmain took a trip to M&J Trimming!

Painfully Shy

Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands

Ah Edward Scissorhards, the lonely recluse who just wanted to find a family and love. We wish he came to NYC instead of holing up in that mansion. He would have fit right in with the M&J Trimming family! His suit made of leather and buckles, deathly pale skin, and shy, introverted demeanor really made him a goth icon.
