Black Magic

The flames of this season’s Goth trend are fanned by the continuation of the theme throughout this month’s Elle. A page dedicated to “Black Magic”, a coven of black accessories, showcases everything from boots to bags, feather collars to cuffs.

 “Be seduced by the DARK and dramatic. The GOTH trend has 50 shades of black (almost).”

Patent leather has a huge impact on the Goth look, so these next two items can be thrown into the mix in this months cauldren of Gothic goodness:

Patent black court shoes, simple and classic. You can rest assured that these items will cover a multitude of trends and styles. Equally as home in the office as in the club, they are the hard working staple of any wardrobe. This pair, with a chunky heel and platform sole pack a real punch and you can strut with attitude.

For a more lady like approach to black magic try these bejewelled beauties:

The best magic potions take frogs legs and rats tails, and little black leather satchels…

Or perhaps you prefer an ingredient of a more designer quality:

Maybe you want to add a handful of feather’s to intensify your spell, why contain your feather’s to a collar, when you can wear them on your shoes?

And while you’re mixing up these elements of black magic, you could adorn your wrists with a studded bangle:

    • Yes I did! I love it! But unfortunately yesterday, the screw came undone and the clasp for the letters cam undone. All is not lost however as it’s the back of the screw and it’s slid down inside the lining… I just need to take some time to coax it back out again… remind me, what do screws like to eat? Ha ha! xx
