Gothcore is getting a big push and an even bigger following since the release of Netflix's 'Wednesday', a reboot of The Addams Family franchise.
Actress Jenna Ortega fully embodies the role as 'Wednesday' and takes us on a journey through the life of the world's favourite dark and spooky family.
What makes one goth? Well the most recognizable signature is the dark aesthetic, black hair, makeup and clothes accessorized with metal jewelry or chains. But Goth is not just a fashion statement but a culture of ideologies. It is the appreciation of the darker, more mythical aspects of life and aversion to what is considered 'normal' and acceptable in a stereotypically acceptable society.
Originating in the 1970s, goth started in the United Kingdom but quickly gained traction and was made popular in the 1990s by music artists such as the Cure and Marilyn Manson.
While goth was still alive and well since the new series it's now been placed in the spotlight and more people are exploring (and posting) their look and feel.
It's in stark contrast to the Barbiecore trend that reigned during the summer:
So don't be afraid to embrace your inner goth and all things dark, mysterious and sickeningly sinister.
