When we hear the words “holiday clothing” many of us are haunted by images of baggy sweaters with threaded reindeer (no offense if that’s what you’re into). Maybe our vision of holiday wear takes on a less embarrassing and more conventional form, like red and green dresses tied with ribbons. But what about holiday outfits for the everyday goth?! What festive apparel is out there for women who would rather channel Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice than the Winona in Little Women (although both roles are killer)?!

Luckily, the world of black dresses aren’t just meant for classy date nights, they’re meant for extends into the wardrobes of everyday goths slightly updating their look in lieu of the holidays.

We are here to guide you through the dark wilderness to the black dresses you desire.

So sit back and let us do the work for once.
