The idea behind this style is to balance the intensity of the original Goth style with cheery, vibrant colors and cute patterns. You can think of it as the 90s grunge with a modern touch of cutesy. Like Victorian Goth, Pastel Goth is a recognized subgenre of Goth.
Pastel Goth combines light shades of purple, pink and green instead of dark colors. Want to hope on the alt trend? Here is how to go about it.
What is Pastel Goth?
Pastel Goth is the only style that mixes cute images with disturbing ones like blood, aggressive signs and offensive text. This style was born from combining dark, grungy components with pastel, cuddly kawaii touches and some boho chic sprinkles.
Pastel Goth culture started online and was influenced by street fashion in Korea and Japan. Also, some Goth enthusiasts argue that Pastels do not fit in as a subculture; others are more receptive.
How Do I Become a Pastel Goth?
Pastel Goth Hairstyles
A crucial aspect when going Pastel Goth is the hairstyle and color. The hair will play a significant role in achieving the final look. People can instantly tell you are a Pastel Goth just by your hairstyle.
Don’t fancy dyeing your hair? Worry not. You can use colorful extensions or wigs as an alternative. Also, pick from hair accessories, such as bows, clips, veils, and headbands. You can add extra cuteness to the bands using horns and cat ears.
Though pastel goths are more open in color than classic goths, the main color of their style remains black. You can play around with a variety of pastel colors boldly.
Pastel Goth Outfits
One of the best things about this look is it combines different styles. Instead of buying stuff explicitly made for Pastel Goth, you can mix and match elements from Kawaii, girl, Goth, and grunge. Check out these pastel goth dresses from KITTYDOTT.
Makeup Goes A Long Way
This style is nearly impossible to achieve without black lipstick. Also, you can choose a bright shade of eyeshadow to make your eyes stand out. Consider using a Pastel Goth palette to get started with your Pastel Goth makeup. You can do your pastel makeup using colors that either stand out against or match your hair and outfit.
Accessories Are A Must!
Accessories are crucial to pulling off the pastel goth look. Accessorizing with dark or bright clothing is a great way to play around with color and style. Spiked bracelets, earrings, rings, and beaded bracelets are all great options for creating different looks.
Remember The Patterns.
You can use patterns to make your outfit edgy and add some texture. Go for gothic-style skulls, webs, and bat wings, or use cuddly kitties, bows, candies and other items to make more fun combinations. You can wear a set with similar patterns or mix different prints and patterns for tights and T-shirts. The patterns will go a long way in emphasizing your chic.
