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.
