The goth biker style is a mixture of two distinct yet overlapping styles that have been remained popular for many years now. The goth or gothic look is a varied one with many different styles. The biker look has grown from the practical gear bikers wear when on their bikes into a whole style that is worn by non-bikers as well. So whether the goth biker look is you or you for a special occasion, here are some tips on getting it right.
Basics of the goth biker style
One of the great things about going for the goth biker style is that there really aren’t too many set looks or styles to stick to. Sure, there’s a lot of black involved but even that is optional – there are plenty of goths out there who opt for other dark colours like burgundy, fern green and navy blue as well as their favourite black.
As for the biker side of the look, think about what bikers wear for inspiration. Leather jackets and pants are worn to protect them if they have an accident but are also a great style. Lots of zips, studs and metal effects make the perfect biker look. Dark shades of denim are also good for this style.
Some of the key ways to make the look your own is with gothic jewellery. Lots of bikers love to wear big, bold rings and pendants as well as earrings when not wearing helmets so good gothic jewellery will work perfectly for this look.

As mentioned, gothic doesn’t have to mean just black and the Emerald Claw Men’s Gothic Ring brings a bit of colour to your look.
