Cabaret Goth: 'Steam' Vest at Hilary's Vanity


This vest embodies the basics of the non-ruffled approach to the Cabaret Goth style. Gorgeous, striking and, yes, simple. It's word I realise am overusing, yet somehow I feel the principle of simplicity in alternative clothing is often radically underrated. Sometimes more can, indeed, be less.

Add even one little feature to this vest, for example, and the structured equilibrium of all the elements present would be in jeopardy.

That said, there are, of course, lots of styles which play on and break out of any aesthetic restrictions on how much stuff can be crammed into one piece and do so in some kind of style (Deathrockers and the Visual Kei spring in mind).

Vest found here.
