Designed as decor for your neck, Gothic inspired chokers are made from lace, satin, velvet, leather and metals and are often adorned with precious gems. A combination of small and elegant chokers or large, bold ones make for an interesting attraction to ones neck and face.
Chokers can be worn to add romance, glamour and style to any formal or smarter attire. We have selected our top 5 favourites this season.
The Sapphire Blue Sinistra Gothic Choker makes a statement, similar to the Lucretia it is also created from quality venise lace, swathes of silver chains with a sapphire blue cabochon set in an antiqued ornate filigree frame with blue swarovski crystal drop pendant.
If you are looking for something simple and sexy, the Angelique Lace Choker showcases a breath-taking Purple Amethyst stone or Red Cabochon with cascades of swarovski crystals which glisten above your collar bones.
Delicate black floral jacquard satin ribbon holds this Westenra Filigree pendant together, detailed with green swarovski crystals and a silver dagger which sits sharply on your throat.
Add a dash of romance to your jewellery collection with this Jet Black Lace Nocturne choker showered with black swarovski crystal bicone beads which drip down the neckline into a V which is detailed with a black focal faceted cabochon in the middle with a crystal drop below.
Eye-catching and intricate the Ruby Red Lucretia Choker by Dark Elegance Designs is made up of venise lace with draped silver chains with a ruby red cabochon set in an antiqued ornate filigree frame and a silver-tone cross pendant.

With Summer solstice celebrations past, we look ahead in our diaries and see Alt-Fest is next on the agenda! Hurrah! We love a banging festival here at The Gothic Shop HQ so we have picked out some of our must-have items to get you through the Summer Festivals.
If you are camping or glamping we have easy to wear outfits which you can mix and match with your existing wardrobe as well as comfy, cool and best of all Gothic!
Take a few pairs of trousers or leggings as you can expect to get grubby, we love the slashed look so have chosen the Destroyer Ripped Trousers and the Skull Slashed leggings along with a black mini skirt or shorts for the blazing August sunshine.
Mix it up with a few tees and vests to avoid sweat overload after a heavy dance session! Ultra-feminine and stylish we have picked two t-shirts from Restyle one features Immortal Skeleton lovers and the other a Mechanical Moth for those of you into steampunk style. Also topping our list is this Spiral Direct Vest detailed with a blood splattered elegant white rose.
Be sure to pack something warm as its bound to get a bit chilly in the early hours, a gorgeous hoodie like the Entwined Rose Lace-up or the SugarSkull Black Cardigan will keep you looking hot when you are feeling exhausted.
Lastly keep your cash safe with a chained biker wallet which you can attach to your wrist or belt loops.
Be sure to check out www.the-gothic-shop.co.uk for all your festival gear!

While getting one's outfit perfect is all important, accessorising can finish off the overall look, bringing you great style. Some will even argue that it's solely the accessories that make or break a dress! Statement jewels and diamonds will bring undeniable glamour to any evening gown, a cute clutch will be all that's needed to keep one's essentials in on that night out. But what about the other more unique looking accessories? The pieces that could mark your personal style out from the rest? Yes we are talking gloves!
