The best Gothic-Style Shirts for leggy lovelies

At school I never really went through the Goth phase. I never dyed my hair purple, listened to emotional rock or found myself a grubby, eyeliner-wearing boyfriend.

And I feel a bit like I missed out.

Maybe it’s the Kristen Stewart effect, but I suddenly want to dabble with the dark side. (And I don’t mean I want to cop off with a director, sleep with vampires or, um, actually do anything remotely dark. I just quite like the idea of buying one or two of the blouses below).

Lace, ruffles and sheer fabrics at Alexander Wang and Valentino signalled that the vamp is well and truly back. So this coming season, a gothic-style top is a must. Wear with opaque tights and a similarly morbid-looking skirt, or pair it with skinnies, spikes and a sweep of black eye-shadow.

Top L-R: Dorothy Perkins £28/ Topshop £38/ Topshop £32. Middle L-R: Long Tall Sally £40, Topshop £32, Topshop £36. Bottom L-R: Next £10/ Topshop £36/ Topshop £28

Anyone found any other pieces on the highstreet suitable for a leggy Twi-hard?

  1. Lovely stuff Laura! Have you seen any tall dark colour lace prom/skater style dresses yet? Topshop haven’t got anything yet, last year they had a gorgeous dark blue one but too small for daughter as a Size 10 and she is a 12 now. Out of interest I noticed River Island have a section called “The Long and the Short of it” where the dresses come in mini or midi – not sure if they are really actually cut with tall bodies in mind, but maybe worth a try?

  2. I was inspired by your post ‘Skinny Jeans and Silly Shirts’ and immediately went on the hunt for a shirt with mismatched sleeves suitable for my long back and arms. I found this one hidden away in River Island and fell in love; it’s plenty long in the arms and long enough in the body to wear both loose and tucked in. It’s not block colour like the other beautiful tops and blouses you’ve featured here but I think it channels the goth vibe too. I’m now on the hunt for dark green PU shorts to team it with!

  3. OMG I LOVE it! Well found Anne-Marie 🙂 We will all look like crazy East-London leggy lovelies together xx

  4. They seem to have loads of lacey goodness in the new range that Jane Norman (aka: my mothership) brought out…proper grown up sleeve lengths too…x

  5. Love your selection of dark-romance inspired tops. That lace in the center is a gem, as is the peplum top.
    love, love, love.
