The Street Goth movement has slowly been becoming mainstream, and it is best defined as minimal gothic style with a twist of 90’s R&B genre.
Other than the color Black, street style goth consist of dark colors, with more toned down contemporary clothing styles mixed with black leather apparel.
Rugged boots, sportswear shoes, high-end designer clothing mixed with street brands, a lady-like skirt for males or leather pants are all examples of its signature styles.
