Welcome to the dark side Babes!
While summer was all about the clean girl aesthetic and a golden sun-kissed & put-together look— the fall spooky season stands in stark contrast with its goth glam, e-girl approved look. Adapted from the early 2000’s goth look & modernized– the gothcore aesthetic is a grungier trend, but that doesn't mean you can’t have fun dressing it up or down.
We're talking about outfits packed with dark feminine energy, smoky eyes, dark lips, metals, and rich dark shades. Think corsets, vegan leather, & lace. The kind of modern, movie vampire glam that you’d find in the Vampire Diaries or the upcoming reboot of the Addams Family.
Wondering how to get the 2022 goth look? Here are our favorite looks & how you can achieve them with your favorite INH products:
