I received an email quite recently from a gentleman who would like to experiment more with Goth style but is concerned about looking as though he is trying to dress 'young'. I thought I would post some helpful links filled with inspiration and advice for adult Goths and those interested in dabbling in dark culture alike.
I am a huge fan of the Morbid Fashion blog run by the lovely Zellain. Zellain's take on Goth style is modern, elegant and a little bit futuristic for fashion-conscious adult Goths who stash their Vogues next to their Gothic Beautys. The Morbid Fashion website (morbidfashion.net) is due to relaunch in March but in the meantime you can whet your appetite with its sister Tumblr, here.
Sinister Sartorialist is another fashion-oriented Tumblr run by a gentleman with an impeccably decadent sense of style. (This may be of help also to those of you bemoaning the lack of Goth fashion resources for gents.)
I'm sure you are already aware of my fellow blogspot users Sophistique Noir and This is CorpGoth? VictorianKitty and Trystan use their respective blogs to document their daily adventures in Goth style, whether it be office wear with darker stylings or clubwear for the adult Goth.
Hexotica is another grown-up Goth blogger whose style is spot-on, featuring dark cabaret and vintage stylings and stunning use of colour.
Haute Macabre's tagline is 'because it wasn't just a phase', and they feature such luminaries of the Gothic world as Zoetica Ebb and Clint Catalyst as staff writers (whose personal websites are also worth checking out for your fix of dark style). There's also the Haute Macabre Tumblr.

You might also enjoy Auxiliary Magazine, a personal favourite of mine with some really sumptuous editorials.
Have fun with all the links! I hope you enjoy all these blogs as much as I do! :3
