How To Put Together a Whimsigoth Outfit

Step into a world where fashion becomes a portal to witchy ruffled silhouettes, gothic pendants, lace and mesh moments, knitted textures, dark florals and a love for foliage-inspired and earthy palettes. Here you’ll be under a spell of all things Whimsigoth! 🕯☾🔮🖤

The Whimsigoth aesthetic bloomed in the 90s, with media such as Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Craft, and Practical Magic bringing us into a soft-gothic realm of witchy colour palettes, lace, mesh, corsets, velvet, chunky boots, and statement jewelry pieces. It comes as no surprise that this subgenre of 90s fashion has come to the forefront once again, especially around autumn and winter when there’s a sense of magical darkness lurking amongst the chilly mornings and endless broth-based dinners! 

A darker element of Cottagecore and Fairycore clothing but a more romantic and soft approach to Grunge fashion, Whimsgothic clothing is for those who don’t like to define themselves and prefer to bounce between realms. I mean, the supernatural are known for shapeshifting, right? 

With albums like Maisie Peter’s The Good Witch and Olivia Rodrigo’s Vampire acting as an audio playlist to live out your Whimsigoth aesthetic era, step into the weird and wonderful.

Florals are a huge part of the Whimsy Goth aesthetic, especially dark hues and patterns. A blend of whimsical charm and gothic elegance, think Stevie Nicks or Florence Welch, absolutely captivating the stage in long and draped floral numbers. Our Isadora Floral Layered Maxi Dress, our Dark Renaissance Mesh Maxi Dress, and our Lila Floral Print Midi Skirt seamlessly intertwines intricate mesh and dark but dreamy patterns, creating an enchanting Whimsigoth look that's both ethereal and mysterious.
