ClaustroClothic #16: Goth Festival Fashion
Okay so I jumped the gun a bit. The time is almost here. My favorite part of the summer is when it’s sticky hot. I’m probably sweating from dancing and my only way to cool off is to hop in the pit. It’s not that time yet. No, it’s spring.. So it’s grab a bunch of your girls and use the buddy system to get a good seat at your favorite show.
For me, spring festival fashion is always about looking good as hell but feeling comfortable too. This summer is gonna be another colorful one, but most of the time I try to stay subtle.
The basics of this outfit
I’m a sucker for layers. The key to this outfit is that it had to have a flow to it. I wanted to come in looking like the Countess from American Horror Story (I did a look inspired by the show a while back.) That’s where the sheer kimono robe style top comes in. I got mine from Dolls Kill but it’s a little long for me so if you’re short like me, get the one I linked instead. Because it was so long, I used my Xylia belt from SKG Designs to give it that cinched waist look. The last thing I need is to trip on my flow vogue walking around a festival.
Underneath that is where my color remains. The purple lace bodysuit underneath the Venus bodysuit from SKG Designs. I didn’t feel comfortable wearing either of these individually so pairing them made me feel less exposed.
I decided that this is the summer that I start finding amazing things to put outfits together. Outside of harnesses, I never think about what’s going to put the personality into my outfits… It’s a challenge. No summer look for me would be complete with my signature round hat. My mom used to rock these when she was younger. Paired with pretty much any pair of round shades, I always feel like I’m taking it back to my roots. My style has always been inspired by one of my mom’s favorite fashion icons– Prince which is why this is the summer of purple.
The necklace is officially a favorite of mine. When I imagine festival fashion, I see boho in my head and this necklace is BOHO. No goth festival fashion look would be complete to me without a black lace parasol so I had to finally snag one from Amazon and I’m loving it. My fan comes from SourPuss Clothing which is a new favorite of mine.
Last but Certainly Not Least, The Shoes.
My baby bats!
I almost always skipped Killstar in the past when I go on my shopping sprees, but lately I’ve been catching every single clearance they have which is where I got these shoes. Honestly, it changed my entire perspective of Killstar up. If you’re more into the traditional goth style as opposed to the street style, you just gotta know where to shop. This won’t be my last haul with them so trusst me when I say, I got you.
That’s the look! What’s the next festival/event/show you’ll be attending?
I’ll be at Chicago’s Hotel Diablo tour stop next month screaming for Kells. What festival will you be at? Also don’t forget to follow my personal instagram for daily outfit inspiration!
