Hot Goth Summer: Some Necessities

Winter is a more forgiving season. Dark, dreary days that are likely to cure that seasonal depression of yours and allow for all the cute clothes in your closet. But you can still have the hottest of goth summers, provided you’re doing the damn thing right.


1. Lace Umbrella

Here’s a life hack to keep you from sweating your balls (literal or metaphorical) off this summer: buy a black umbrella! As they all keep telling you, black clothes absorbs heat! A black umbrella above you will absorb the heat coming directly onto you, keeping you a couple of degrees cooler underneath. Plus, isn’t is super cute?

2. Cute, High-Waisted Shorts
