You’ve probably heard of the gothcore trend and if you haven’t the trend which is sometimes called ‘Goth Girlfriend,’ has been inspired by style icons like Kourtney Kardashian and Megan Fox, who are famously in rock star relationships. This aesthetic features dark colors, pops of plaid, cross necklaces, and plenty of metal-inspired choices.
With rock star style having a moment, and ’90s grunge staples being re-discovered by a whole new TikTok generation, the evolution to Gothcore has been somewhat natural.
Pioneering the trend in Nigeria, Ayra Starr gave her take on the gothcore trend with her recent post on Instagram. The star layered a black mesh leggings with a sheer flared skirt. She added a black graphic T with a sheer long sleeved tank top underneath.
For footwear, Ayra slipped into a knee-length gothic leather boots with buckles detailing. Taking hair inspo from Cruella, she wore long braids and silver layered necklace.
