For all the alternative girls out there, shopping, styling and accessorizing is basically a hobby and we’re really good at it. But maybe you need some fresh ideas to revamp your wardrobe. In this article you’ll get cute outfit ideas that suit your spooky aesthetic.
1. Grunge Look: High Waisted Shorts + Fishnet Tights
High waisted shorts and fishnet tights is a super sexy outfit, and paired with a crop top and a flannel shirt or jacket it’s the perfect goth-grunge look. Fishnet tights have been a staple for alternative girls for decades, and go with just about anything so when worn with high waisted shorts (which have been trendy these last few years), knee high socks, your favorite Demonia or combat boots, and you’ve got a look that works great for concerts and won’t feel be so restricting (like with corsets).
This combo also looks awesome with tank tops, band tees, fishnet shirts if you wanna be extra or a jacket over the crop top instead of a flannel.

2. Sleek And Casual: Black Skinny Jeans + Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are a must-have for all women, not just the punk-goth babes, but for everyone because its a classic! Leather jackets look great with most outfits, but paired with black jeans, boots or sneakers, and your favorite shirt (maybe a long sleeve or you favorite band tee), and you’ve got a casual, comfortable, yet sleek outfit for day or night.

3. Classic: Pleated Skirt With Tights
Pleated skirts (especially those plaid ones) are always adorable and work for so many aesthetics and looks, but are especially important to have in a darker wardrobe. Instead of pairing your pleated skirt with fishnets, try a different kind of tight. Many of them have that faux garter style. Lots of tights have cute patterns or designs on them, and add an extra bit of fun to the look. Or just a pair of knee high socks are also a classic!
Pleated skirts go nicely with most jackets, cardigans or t-shirts, and a variety of accessories. Try spikey bracelets, or a 90’s choker.

4. Hippie Witch Look
The hippie witch aesthetic has been on the rise in recent years, or at least that’s what its been referred to. It often consists of wearing flowy shawls made of velvet or lace, long skirts or dresses, layered necklaces and a wide-brimmed wool hat.

5. Casual Grunge Outfit
Plaid pants are all the rage and while you can find them with all the chains, buckles, D-rings and metal additions you can also find simpler plaid slacks for a more casual look. While plaid pants aren’t inherently grunge the laidback, almost sloppy appeal to this outfit will give you grunge vibes.
These pants paired with a basic crop top or sweater would make either the perfect fall or spring outfit and goes even better with sneakers, and an oversized jacket. Try a little backpack as a purse and some cool retro sunglasses for a whole ensemble.

6. Tim Burton Goth
The Tim Burton Goth aesthetic usually involves black and white stripes and Victorian attire. If you can combine the two all the better! Black and white stripes especially are a Goth/alternative staple and luckily you can find this pattern in just about anything: jeans, jackets, cardigans, corsets, blouses, skirts, dresses and more! Getting a black and white striped corset would be the most Burton-esque by far!
