Not so long ago, gothic style fashion and jewelry such as cross necklaces and skull rings were only worn by those that labelled themselves as Goths; this style of accessory was seen as dark, wild and not the kind of thing just anyone could wear. If you did, you were making a statement about yourself, about your individuality.

However, things have changed rapidly over the last couple of seasons in the fashion world and skulls, crosses, corsets and other goth style fashion has found their way onto the runways and into stores. Ready to explore this trend, read on for our ideas on how to incorporate goth fashion style into your look. 

Start with Gothic Rings and Jewelry

Rings are one of the easiest ways to change up a look; the same dress, for instance, can look completely different depending on what rings, necklace, earrings or bracelets adorn it. Gothic jewelry is particularly great for transforming a plain looking outfit into something which will turn heads. Those that adore their little black dress, but are running out of ways to style it, should consider using a bold skull ring, or a long cross necklace.

Skull rings now come with jeweled eyes in every kind of color imaginable, so they’re perfect for adding a pop of color to an all black outfit. Likewise, a long silver cross necklace will instantly add interest to a plain dress.
