What is Goth?

Simply put, a Goth is someone who finds beauty in things that are dark and mysterious. The culture isn’t all about dark clothing, though.

In fact, pastel goth continues to have many of the same trends as goth, but uses light colors like baby pink, lavender, and cream. 

There’s so much that influences the goth culture including personal preference, aesthetic, style and music choice. Some examples of this are the cybergoth culture, which typically pulls inspiration from internet trends and 90’s fashion while still having a futuristic and even dystopian look. 

 

History of Goth Subculture

The first generation of the gothic movement emerged mostly in the UK around the late 1970s.

Like today’s followers of mainstream subculture, early Goths were influenced by fashion, music, and mythology from the pre-medieval eras and by different cultures from all around the world.

In 2020, goths put a more modern twist on the subculture with their fashion and music choices.
