Gothic rock started in the UK in the 1980s and is an offshoot of post-punk. The subculture that was based on the music survived through the decade and to this very day still has many "followers". Many fashion styles have been connected to goth, and they will be discussed here.
A list of some goth bands (NOTE: There are way more bands than I listed. I just posted the more popular ones):
Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, 45 Grave
Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Love Spirals Downwards, Voltaire

Many goth styles exist. Here are some of the more popular ones.
80s goth. Monochrome, big black dyed hair, boots, and ankh necklaces can be found in this style.
Deathrock. Rip black clothes, death hawks (teased mohawks), and looking like you just crawled from a grave.
Victorian goth. This style is filled with long skirts, corsets, velvet and lace. Men wearing elegant items such as poet shirts and trousers.Always looking your best, it's a blast from the past, for sure.
Cybergoth. Black mixed with neon colours. PVC, skimpy clothes, and giant fuzzy boot warmers belong here.
Mallgoth/poser/spooky kid. Baggy bondage pants, hard rock band shirts and mostly looking like a fool. No one but young teens like this so just don't do it, okay?
Tell me cool links that involve fashion, the music, or clubs, & I'll surely post them!
Fashion things (or stuff I just found really funny) from other folks.
Proof that goth doesn't have to be pricey:
Handmade crown, second hand black wedding gown, corset from ebay, second hand wedding skirt (the poofy one underneath), cheapass gloves, necklace made by friend and my mom made the red and black skirt. Cost me 150 euro's in total, which is about... 190 dollars or so? But I saved this outfit over a duration of a few months.
