Gothic architecture aimed for the illusion (if not the fact) of height in their design, and luckily every fashion magazine since circa. forever has suggested the following tip: Vertical lines will help you to mimic the emphasis on height that Gothic architecture aimed for. Avoid anything horizontal, but stripes and details that point upwards (including high heels) will do wonders.
As I mentioned in my previous post, some elements of Gothic cathedral are best described as lacey and spindly. In fact, part of the appeal of Gothic architecture is that some of the structural innovations (such as the flying buttress) enabled the cathedral to look weightless. To mimic this in your look, avoid heavy looking materials like leather and velvet and use lace and chiffon to add a bit of ethereal weightlessness to your look.
Gothic architecture is an excellent source of inspiration for Goths, in my opinion, but I want to know how you all would incorporate Gothic inspiration into your outfits. Are there any other elements you would love to use?
