My Ode To Purple Goth-fashion!
Guys, try not to hate my collage too much since I worked on it for six hours and nearly died of exhaustion because apparently I’m ridiculously bad at making these things. Hopefully, I’ll get better in the future.

Tips And Tricks
- Colour makes it so much easier to diversify outfits and will always bring a different touch to an outfit you’ve worn a thousand times but it doesn’t have to be a huge change!
- When going with a bold colour try using it as a running theme throughout the outfit and accessories.
- Cyber Goth isn’t the only subculture of which to be inspired. Punk, Panda-Popare, Grunge, Kinderwhore are also notable for darker outfits with colours.
- Work colour into different textures, such as purple fishnets or a red chiffon scarf worn around your head.
- Wear sheer clothes or lace items over muted reds and purples.

- Belts are great for separating different patterns and/or materials (for instance plaid and velvet) but are also good for adding giant pops of colour.
- Patterns with tinges of colour in them are brilliant when you aren’t used to colour. It gives a hint of colour but doesn’t overwhelm.
- Patterned, stripped or fishnet stockings!
- Jewellery with ruby, amethyst and jade tones work well with black and don’t take away that dark edge.
- The simplest and cheapest way to add pops of colour is in your make up! Try a bright purple lip or a heavy plum?
How do you add colour into your wardrobe? Or are you more of a black on black person, like myself? Also, be sure to check out Sophistique Noir’s monthly theme of purple!
