My biggest problem with goth fashion is that if it’s not done right, it looks cheesy and cheap. Ovate has got the sleek and sexy look down to a science. Every item on their website is a crucial piece of their image, a well constructed collection of black that isn’t boring. No tacky fabrics, no gimmicky buckles. Everything borders on the line of simple and intricate: The pieces are easy to add into your existing wardrobe and yet they have a sense of style that is hard to come by.

My favorite piece would have to be the Valhalla Hoodie, mostly because hoodies are sexy to me, and I can’t really explain why. It’s over-sized in the hood, but fitted in the arms. I like the open cardigan styled (as opposed to pull-over) because I can still show off my vintage Cure shirt while wearing it. However, the wool cloak is heavenly and by far the most gorgeous cloak I have ever seen. The clasp is a scythe, which is also featured in their jewelry as earrings or rings. The mismatched scythe earrings speak to my love of asymmetry.

“Ovate is an independent clothing line designed by Audrey Cantwell and made in Montreal.” Check out their website, instagram and tumblr.
