There is goth, and then there is kawaii. And if you marry them together? You have the striking pastel goth look. Pastel goth puts a twist on what we might consider the traditional goth look and plays with color and lightness. You’ll see different fabrics and a range of subcultures coming through too.
Pastel goth isn’t a new trend, but it is a lot of fun to play around with. So if you are ready to play with blacks and baby pinks and create some creative looks, then here are some tips for you.
There aren’t really any rules with fashion, but when it comes to pastel goth, you really want to think about the colors you are going to have. You can create a signature style by sticking with a color palette. You will still have black leather and some more edgy clothing. But the pops of pastels bring it to life.
- Baby pink
- Sky blue
- Mint greens
And you can push that further with holographic too.
If you want to add a quick and exciting piece to any outfit, then think about your tops. While keeping the rest of your outfit black and pretty plain, you can make a big statement with your top. Sugar skulls, candy canes, kitties, or even big fluffy jumpers are all a lot of fun.
If you like to push boundaries, then geometric pattern leggings are perfect.
The fun you can have! If you don’t want to commit to a single colour, then you can get plenty of wigs that will give you what you want in terms of color, style, and volume. Pinks, purples, and blues are the most popular colors. But mint greens are gorgeous too. There are zero rules when it comes to your hair, just try to do as little damage as possible to your locks.
If you don’t want to dye your hair at all, then go wild with accessories: fluffy hair bands, cute ice cream slides, and the recently very popular diamante word hairpins.
You can be a different person every day with the right pallets in your hand. You will find that most often pastel goth make-up leans into the darker sides. Black lipsticks, deep purples, and smoked out grey-black eyes. If you have yet to perfect the cat eye or you have hooded lids, then check out a hooded lids winged liner tutorial.
Walk the Walk
The shoes have it! Classic goth boots are high in heel and bold in style. Put a bink cute twist on them with ribbons, and you have gorgeous shoes. Of course, not everyone wants to risk hitting the floor, so if you are less than confident in your walking ability in heels, some pastel creepers will do the trick and keep you well balanced.
Studs, safety pins, cute tees, and many fun accessories are all up for grabs when you start looking into the pastel goth style. And there is a lot of room for DIY too!
