Ah, to be a modern goth. Originally a goth meant that you were part of a Germanic tribe around the 4th Century. And then there is the gothic, which took on different meaning in literature and art. Fast forward to the 20th Century and after, and we have the modern goth culture and goth apparel. What is it like to be a goth in the modern world? Even more, a goth in a cold weather environment? What about your goth clothing needs! Well, that’s complicated. But since we’re on the subject. It sounds like you need a goth sweater to keep your gothy style while also keeping yourself warm and toasty.
To many the goth scene is simple. It’s a bunch of black clothing with some heavy make-up. In reality, goth is like other social groups and subcultures. There are different groups within goth culture. Each have their own unique personal tastes, style, and musical choices. And sweaters.
Goth fashion and sweaters seem like an unusual pairing, but historically they are a match made in heaven… or hell?
The Goth sweater is actually a very old style that has been around in some form since the early 20th century. It was originally borrowed from the Germanic tribes of Europe who wore thick knitted sweaters to protect them from the cold weather. When the Goth subculture began to become popular in the 1980s, they adopted this style as their own by wearing it with dark, dreary clothing and accessories.
Today, you can find many different types of Goth sweaters available for purchase online. Some of these are classic designs with little embellishment (other than maybe a skull or cross), while others have more modern twists on the traditional design like lace panels and ruffles.
Behold! Feast your eyes on the dark and warming options available to all who seek to partake in these eerie and mysterious sweaters. Be a winter goth!
