Top Ten Types of Goth Style

Believe me or not their is so many types of goth styles but first let me tell you things about goths

The goth subculture is a contemporary type of people within a group who adopt fashion elements such as black clothes,dyed black hair, dark eyeliner and black nail polish (some goths didn't adopt these fashion elements)

The goth subculture has been associated with taste in music, aesthetic and fashion

The style of dressing within the subculture range from deathrock, punk and victorian, or combinations of the above, most offen with dark attire (offen black of course),pale face makeup (not all goths should have pale skin in my opinion) and black hair.

The scene countinues to draw interest from audiences decades after its emergence.

It's very obvious that I use wikipedia in writing this things about goths.

The Top Ten

Trad Goth

Trad is short for "traditional" they are the first type of goth that is created (that's why they are on the number one) trad goths started at the 80's

A typical trad goth love their big black hair, too pale skin, dark makeup, ripped fishnet, leather and boots

Their clothing is from the 80's with all that spooky stuffs and trad goths are inspired by punks.

STILL the best type of Goth in my opinion, and the musics are great (Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Cure).

Industrial Goth

Cybergoth is a subculture that derives form the element of goth,raver, and riverthead fashion

A common fashion elements of a cybergoth are neon dreads, gas mask or goggles. These goths loves to neon colors and black or another colors. Purple, Pink, Red,Blue, Orange and green are the typical colors that are seen in this type of goths. A more extravagant makeup style is common for this type of goth, Cybergoths draw a pattern with eyeliner or do more detailed eyeliner to their eyes but this is not always done by cybergoths

Don't know thd others but voted for this simply for Ayria and Angelspit. But I never got where it touches the Goth scene. It looks more inspired by the cyberpunk film genre to me.

Cyberlox/cyberlocks are so cool. I want to try them on one day.

Romantic Goth

I love mixing this with witchy, dreamy, and Lolita styles

This sounds pretty cool.

Romantic goths are focused on the dark,sensual,mysterious world of gothic created by victorian literature

Identifying features of Romantic goths are velvet and lace, flowy crowns and the love of poetry and literatures

Romantic goths are typically emotional, creative, and dreamy, passionate, loves the drama of romance and sorrow

Nu Goth

Nu goth is sometimes called "Hipster goth" or "Hipsters wearing black" for me Nu goth is a simple goth style

Some goth didn't like this style because it's just wearing all blacks not like the other goths or something

Nu goth wear all black and symbols that are used in the goth community like pentagram

Steam Punk Goth

Goth AND Steampunk? Cool!

Emo Goth

I am an emo goth~
I am proud of myself.
And all of you people that hate us goths, we hate you too.
Oh, and I'm Pansexual and Transgender, so come at me!

Not a real goth type in my opinion.

A mix of emo and goth

Have a nice day


Gotabilly (sometimes called as hellabily) is an offshoot of physcobilly influenced by the goth style

The name of this goth style combined but gothic and rockabilly

The common fashion elements in this goth style are fringe bangs, long tresses that have victory curls or regular curls, pencil skrit or dress that have a lot of colors besides black, heels, garters, fishnets for girls and for boys the common fashion elements in this goth style are ripped jeans, leather jacket, tatoos, black denim for a more bad-@$$ looking

In my opinion this goth stlye is sexy and classy

A sub-style of rockabilly, the gothabilly is all about asserting sexuality, style, and affinity for darkness

Vintage goth


Japanese Goth.

Gothic Lolita

The gothic lolita (or J-goth) is a combination of goth and lolita. Lolita is a Japanese Street Style together with goth The gothic lolita is scary but still cute. The gothic lolita isn't like pastel goth, because gothic lolita wear black and scary clothing with the cute lolita style

Gothic lolitas Wear a black high knee socks, black plaform shoes, black lolita dress, gothic and lolita accesories mixed together

If you love japan you probably would love this style.

Gothic Lolita is my #1 favorite Goth fashion, has been for a few years now.

I think it's better than Nu Goth and Pastel Goth.

My second favorite along with pastel goth

The Contenders

Victorian Goth

My friends and I find pastel goth rather unsightly.

Vampire Goths

I am a 15 year old vampire goth. I wear black, red, navy and dark purple. I also love to wear vampire fangs. Vampire goths love vampire movies/shows, bats, coffins and other things to do with vampires. No matter what kind of goth you are your are beautiful just the way you are. You will struggle when it comes to being accepted but don't let that affect you. Be proud that you are a goth! God loves everyone.

I am a 16 year old female vampire goth myself, although I dress more like an emo-goth mixed with a trad-goth since I can't find any stereotypical vampire goth clothes that suit me. And I don't need fake fangs (my canines are already hella sharp)

Vampire goths are often called as "romantic goths with fangs"

Vampire goths are inspired by vampires, they dress and act like a vampire (probably the don't bite someone). Most of them have very pale skin,wears Gothic vampire like outfit, wears fake vampire fangs, (vampires are gothic, am I right? )

Vampire goths are goths who are fans of vampire. They love the things that vampire like (example coffins,the night,graveyard,bats) and all things vampire related

Pastel Goth

The most unique goth in my humble opinion. Allows you to be hardcore yet soft at the same time. Being goth is also not caring what others think, so I could care less if a fellow goth tried to say I'm not a "real goth." They can die mad about it (and laid to rest in a pretty pink coffin).

Pastel goth is the mixture of creepy, dark, gothic things and cute, childish, kawaii things.

Some goths don't considered this goth because it's too cute for them to be considered as goth (not hating also this is why I don't put this in a higher place)

Pastel goths mix pastel colors and black and pastel goths mostly have pastel hair (pink,blue,green,purple pastel) and black lipstick, creepy and cute accessories mixed together, pastel and Gothic outfit mixed together etc

Pastel goth is cute but also creepy and its every me and different to most goths.

My favourite goth

Hippie Goth

More like a nature-worshiping goth that just loves to spread love, but also loves black.

Casual Goth

Casual Goths are basically people who are generally depressed, usually dress in casual clothes in the colors black and red, and accesorize in "edgy" sruff like fingerless gloves and skulls. These goths are like the tween/teen kids in middle school and high school who can't afford or don't really like the fancy stuff

Fetish Goth

Has more to do with people who are into sado-maso. Girls have usually Bettie Page bangs, leather or latex clothes etc... but their not all listening to " goth " music. It has more to do with their sexual preferences.

Fetish goths are the "sexual goths" ( I doesn't mean that they do like to be molested)

Fetish goths wears latex, kinda reavealung gothic clothes etc

Fetish goths are offen kinky and sexual they like to embrace their sexuality to other people

Glam Goth
Goth Punk
Unicorn Goth
Tech Goth
E Girl

I feel like e-girl, much like it's e-boy counterpart is very focused on Asian fashion culture (specifically kpop, a little bit of j-fashion). They mix a lot of elements together, focusing on punk and goth. Even if you dislike egirls/eboys in general, you can't deny that the fashion is rather cool and interesting. The makeup style is great too.

Bubble Goth

Bubble goth is the newest goth style, this goth syle is created by an Estonia ssinger named Kerli Koiv she aims to create make the beautiful,creepy and the creepy,beautful and something like takes the light and the dark and puts them together.She is called goth when her album "Love is dead" was published

This goth style is just like cybergoth who wears light or pastel colors the items on this are mask,light colored dreads, light colored/black corset etc

I think this style is just cybergoth and pastel goth combined (not being rude)

Bubblegoth is just fairy kei. I've seen people in fairy kei who just dress the same as Kerli, I really like kerli's music but she does not ned to creste a new type of goth when it already exist. Fairy kei and bubblegoth to me is the same...

Dark Goth

Dark goth is all about the dark side

Magic Goth

In terms of style it’s probably most like romantic goth, with a lot of styles boasting flowing sleeves and often incorporating rich black velvets for a mystical flare. Tends to be mixed with more contemporary goth styles to reflect the wearers practise of modern witchcraft. Pentagram, mother, maiden, crone’ or crystal jewellery is often worn. Colour palette is usually solid black however I have seen some witchy-goth styles also add hints of purple, which to most pagan practitioners represents the spirit, again for a more mystical touch.

This goth dabbles in witchcraft or is actually Wiccan. They often lean towards the Victorian style and wear pentagrams or images of mythical creatures. They usually know a lot of ancient folklore too.
