Although Christmas and New Years might be all about lighting up the tree and candles- there is still something about the more darkly decadent. Gothic styles are so amazing at this time of year. Think Tim Burton and the Nightmare Before Christmas. Even away from movies, there’s Helena Bonham Carter’s sleek Gothic look in the Harry Potter movies. Dark grays, black and deep navy blues can work beautifully on outfits as well as accessories. Not sure where to start? Take a look at some of the ready-to-wear Gothic inspired favorites from the Fruttituttibeadcandy collection:
Jasper beads mixed with brass make up this dark bracelet. It’s super classy and chic with it’s simplistic style. Very wearable with it’s rounded beads, team it with a work suit as well as using a statement piece. There’s amazing detail in the links as well as the fastening hook. Just one of the many elegant pieces at Fruttituttibeadcandy!
Mixing dark shades with golds and silvers is a true party trend! And you won’t have to fork out thousands for a piece either. Gold coloured seed beads bring about the sense of the precious in this pendant and necklace. The smokey grey cabachon in the centre is beautifully surrounded by the small iridescent glass beads in a burst of glamour. Like all the pieces at Fruttituttibeadcandy, this necklace can be made to measure too, a longer length chain might bring about a feel of a more vintage piece perhaps?
Gothic and dark decadence is more than just black and silver accessories. I love to create Gothic inspired pieces with a twist. This bracelet has a cool mix of brass with berry colours, it’s a seasonal combination that can work year round. There’s plenty of decadent details here too, take a look at the links and the rose shapes as well as the large statement making fastening. It’s a bracelet to cherish for many years to come, not to mention being a fabulous addition to your jewelry box!
Gothic and dark looking accessories can be some of the most attractive to wear for absolutely any time of year. They work with all sorts of styles and add an eclectic mix to your style. Take a look at the rest of the glam and very wearable jewels available from Fruttituttibeadcandy.
