It’s the firsts day of spring! and with the warming of the weather the flowers blooming the sun being out, there are thing Goths should do and don’t do.
DO wear lighter clothing.
I’m not talking about dressing like a stripper.I’m saying dressing in material that is light weight
Stuff like Lace, cotton and other light weight material should help you survive the spring/summer months
but DON”T feel obligated to pile them all on at once! if you do that you might as well leave out your winter clothing because you are going to get hot.
DO try to wear more jeans.
Now i know i will have alot of goth and non goths alike saying “but goths don’t wear jeans.” Think about it like this, during these spring/summer months we will be getting alot of rain and for those goth who dress up daily or even those goths who have their lazy days a pair a jeans would be perfect and you can look at it as a DIY project because if its to plain for you, you can edit it to your liking. Key word is “try” dresses and skirt are still acceptable for spring/summer but if you don’t want to ruin your favorite dress,skirt or even elaborate pants then jeans are the way to go.
DON”T try to wear fishnet
If you tan easily I would advise you not to wear fishnet in this kind of weather
DO carry a umbrella
Its spring after all and spring does bring rain
*if you aren’t the umbrella type invest in a raincoat
DON”T try to wear a spike collar this time of season. As tempting as it may be i would advise against it because of the simple fact that the sun is beaming and the sweat will be dripping and then there will be a mark around your neck and for those that tan easily a ugly neck tan line. Remember those spike collars are made out of leather and leather isn’t very durable for spring/summer months try a regular cool necklace or a lace collar.
DO Go for a soft goth look
and Do try to wear only eyeliner if you don’t already do.
DON’T try to wear any dark makeup or heavy foundation.
a few more tips
*Try to transition white into your wardrobe if you haven’t already. White doesn’t attract heat as much as black does and it also complement black so its a win win.
*Hoodies and Cardigans are perfect for when you are out and you get a bit cold or when it a bit colder than expected.
* Make sure if you are going to wear make-up that its water proof so that if you are out all day you won’t sweat it off.
* If you are going to wear a skirt/dress make sure its the right length and isn’t showing of your bits. You might want to wear leggings under if you are still unsure but make sure that they are lightweight and breathable
*for those that tan easily sunscreen is your best friend but if you don’t like to smother all that all over your body carry a parasol or wear a sun hat.
Hopefully you will follow these tip and you will be able to survive the spring/summer months without a problem 🙂
