Get caught up in your very own costume drama this season with the trend for gothic romance.
Best showcased on the catwalk by Versace, a
new wave of gothic styling is on its way for A/W 12, and nothing sums up this mood better than a touch of lace and leather in dramatic black and midnight blue.
Studs, velvet, sequins and crucifix motifs also feature heavily and for once its OK to take embellishment to the max - think dramatic and moody with a hint of vamp!
Key pieces you need to invest in are a lace skirt, a cape, elbow length gloves and Victorian looking costume jewellery. If a little black dress is more your style there are plenty of knockout options to choose from - just see below for my edit.
