Styles of the Gothic Subculture: SlutGoth/Femme Fatale

Now Femme Fatale goth is a feminine sort of style. It is similar to Fetish Goth in many ways, with a love close fitting clothing. The name is given due to the rather...Skimpy garb these types of goths are seen wearing.

One of the of the differences between femme fatale and fetish Goth is the choice of fabrics; a slut goth is more likely to wear a ripped or frayed  miniskirt with a low-cut cotton bustier than something in PVC corsets or tops. Most Slut goths tend to leave the PVC to footwear if they do decide to wear it.

Most clothing is ripped, short and revealing as most of these goths try to appear sexy. They wear their hair long and messy (Sex-hair if you will)Popular accessories include PVC heels, fishnets (possibly shredded), studded or chain belts and band hoodies. Animal prints are common as are tight-fitting band tees, and tight ripped jeans with teeny-tiny tank tops

Makeup is usually a smoky eye with red or maroon Lipstick. sometimes fancy eyeliner is seen but it varies from person to person.

Although this tends to a female type of dress, men get in on it too. Guys might wear tight leather pants, mesh shirts, T-shirts with provocative slogans,and  ripped skinny jeans which give off a slightly trashy vibe.

  Femme fatale's tend to be interested in rock and metal as well as the heavier side of Goth.  Goth and Industrial bands  include Combichrist, Bella Morte, Deathcamp Project, Devilish Presley, Fields of the Nephilim, Gothminister, KMFDM, and Goth/Industrial/metal hybrid bands like Lahannya and I:Scintilla. Outside of the Goth music, bands like Alice Cooper, Disturbed, Marilyn Manson, Spit Like This, Rob Zombie, Al.B.Damned, Bullet For My Valentine, Deathstars, Aiden and Avenged Sevenfold are often enjoyed.


Hope you all enjoy my first real informative post in forever.

  1. I've never heard the term "Slut Goth." It sounds pretty offensive.

    1. I agree which is why I tried to say the less offensive term of Femme Fatale. I also heard the term Trashy goth thrown around but it still sounds vaguely negative.

    2. I don't like the term 'slut Goth'. It does sound very offensive and patronising to a style of dress.
