I have to say, I never really was big on sweaters until I went to college in New England. Here, everyone wears sweaters. Sweaters with jeans, sweaters with skirts, sweaters with slacks and, yes, sweaters with leggings. And after shivering in my thinner cover-ups, it's hard not to crave a big cozy sweater to cuddle up in (while studying, of course...) But, anyway, I thought I'd show a few pretty Goth looks with sweaters of varying kinds.
First is your basic spooky sweater with shorts and layered tights, a perfect low-key outfit for a lazy day. With ghosts, of course, just so we don't all go through Halloween withdrawal.
I like this look because it looks reminds me of a goth-y version of a look one of my professors might wear while running into class 5-10 minutes late and telling us stories about how hectic her morning has been. Still somewhat sophisticated, but cute and casual and completed by a Joy Division mug. What else could you want?
This one is another lazy sweater look, this time with leggings. I'm totally on board with the recent spike in popularity of clothing with skeleton prints and ouija boards, so this features both. Call me trendy, but they're just so cute and have been especially appropriate for the season.
This set I wanted to make something with a little more edge, which I didn't know if I could pull off because sweaters...edgy? Really? They're just so cozy! But I like this look, I imagine it being worn by a Goth with fantastic hair freezing their butt off on a street corner while waiting for the bus to go do Gothy things. Like hanging out in a cemetery. Or picking up a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
This last look uses a sweater dress, a fantastic invention which many designers seem to get horribly wrong. Seriously, you'd think it wouldn't be hard, but they all are weirdly long, lumpy, or have very dropped waists. But I liked this one, if you look closely the knit of the dress has a cool waist design that reminds me of a long-line corset.
