Where To Get The Best Goth-core Accessories Our Island Can Offer

Ice out your fits with these gothic neck candies to usher in the spooky month of October with a hand-picked selection of artisan bling.

As far as street style is concerned, Bella Hadid is the poster girl for all things Y2K. And she never disappoints, having been spotted just a month ago pairing her tank air baby tee with a novel silver necklace from Istanbul-based jewellery brand Moira X Mel. Reminiscent of coiled rose thorns, the torc-like accessory gives the supermodel’s outfit a grungy edge that leans towards the ‘Goth-core’ aesthetic — a rising trend amongst the TikTok-loving generation.

For the uninitiated, grungier looks have been dominating the interwebs this year as Y2K makes its resurgence in various waves. The most recent splash? ‘Goth-core’. Think figure-hugging corsets, midi skirts, a whole lot of black and most important of all, matching accessories to tie it all together.

Swapping the vibrant beaded necklace trend from the noughties for a more muted palette with a couple of spikes and chains, ‘Goth-core’ brings about a revised version of punk fashion from the early 00s with renewed vigour.

Don’t let their unorthodox marketing distract you from the star of the show. whowantsaynow, otherwise known as WWSN, has a quaint selection of layered necklaces that are in part an ode to the Victorian era but with a modern, quirky twist. Inspired by Bratz, Anime like Kakegurui and even Shrek — yes you’ve read that right — WWSN’s creations are idiosyncratic and a closet staple for the unconventional dresser.
