The summer is coming! The most heard complaint I get is about goth summer fashion. People are always trying to figure out how to keep wearing the “I only wear black” aesthetic in the summer time. I’m a strong believer in the half naked and almost famous mentality so this ClaustroClothic, I’m bringing you a little look into my goth summer fashion looks!
ClaustroClothic #35: Goth Summer Fashion

Note: Most of my outfit comes from Discovery Clothing. I’ve been searching Amazon left and right for a bralette that has that cute crushed look. Haven’t yet. If you’re in the Chicagoland area, there are tons of Discovery stores throughout the city! As I’m typing this, I just realized that they now have an online store.
What inspired this outfit?
Summer fashion is already hard enough. The seasons change and suddenly, you’ve got a whole new wardrobe. I wanted to bring something that says “Hey, I’m warm but also I’ve still got some sex appeal underneath all this darkness!” Goth summer fashion is hard when you still have this concept of black is the hottest color, but literally and fashionably.
How’d you Feel When You put it on?
I was nervous. The combination between these cute stockings that Noodlez gave me that I immediately put a run in because my thighs don’t fit stockings, and the high waist bikini bottom shorts was an interesting combination. At the time that I was doing this session, it was still spring. It was about 50 degrees outside so I couldn’t just run out in the shorts by themselves so I put on stockings underneath. It took a while of getting comfortable, spinning around, stretching my legs for me to get to a point where it didn’t look strange.
What part of the outfit was the best deal?
I’m probably going to be bragging about this find for the rest of my life. I had originally had a pink version of the lace top. I loved it, without a doubt. Yet, I knew they had to have it in black. I went to store after store until eventually one day, I found it. Perfectly in my size and everything. I bought it immediately. No hesitation.

That’s all for now! Tell me how you’re keeping the spirit of being in the dark alive this summer!
