If you’re living in Vancouver, you’ve probably been basking in the glorious heat wave we’ve had this May. It’s nearly Summer now and while we love patio drinks, us pale goth kids are getting concerned once again about what we can wear in the blazing heat.
Fear not, children of the night, I have a solution for you.
Let me introduce you to the circle square skirt. It comes in both a long and short variation.
The lightweight fabric is breezy and comfortable in like, you know, a dark and mysterious sort of way. The kerchief hem is just the right amount of Morticia Addams without being too costumey. You can wear it with a corset or a tank top and it still looks awesome.
Best of all they’re a little bit like the jeans in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants: they fit everyone. The elastic wait means they’re as comfortable as yoga pants (not that I own yoga pants…) and that your skirt will fit your size 12 booty and your bestie’s size 6 booty.
So do not hide in the depth of basement all summer long fellow gothlings, get your butt down to 324 West Hastings and grab yourself a circle square skirt.
How do you alter your goth clothing to beat the heat? Let us know in the comments below.
VICKY WALKS! QUEEN VICTORIA DAY VENUS & MARS ONLINE FASHION SHOW
Welcome to the future nerdlings!
Here at Venus & Mars we really dig Victoria Day. The weather is gorgeous, the birds are chirping and it’s just a fabulous time to wear a corset.
This year we decided to have a fashion show in good old Vicky’s honour.
Typical fashion shows are rad but we decided to one up it and premier our Vicky Walks on Google Hangouts so the idea was that you can watch from your bed in your pjs while eating an entire tub of ice cream. Because it’s 2014 and the future is now!
It didn’t quite go according to plan…
