What is Pastel Goth Fashion?

While traditional goth fashion may not be for everyone, it can sometimes be a bit too dark or too formal for everyday wear. However, if you have a flirty and fun side that loves adding colors and pastels, then the style can be seamlessly integrated into your everyday outfits. It may also be the best way to break free of the hum-drum bore that is traditional fashion.

Pastel clothing should not be confused with a nu style that blends Japanese styles with goth and 1990’s grunge. This style became popular around 2010 and mixes pastel colors with the classic elements of dark goth.

It is the most exciting thing in alternative fashion recently and is also known as soft grunge. It all started as a Tumblr trend back in 2010. It is reminiscent of the emo and scene styles that dominated Myspace and the Internet back in the early 2000s. Pastel goth clothing uses scary gothic elements such as bats, coffins, and skulls, transforming it into something cute and adorable. It often includes pastel hair colors, whether dyed or accomplished, with playfully dyed extensions, 666 accessories, inverted crosses, skulls, and all things dark. They have an edge that is refined and could be explained as a fashion that walks the line between cute and badass. There is a tendency in the pastel clothing for vintage or Victorian elements to be a base that is expanded upon with soft pastel colors and hard-edged or badass accessories.
