The alternative culture movement got a lot of attention in the early to mid-2000s, but then it seemed the media lost interest. That’s good – we weren’t doing it for them anyway. If you’re still deep into goth and alternative counter-culture, sometimes it’s hard to find the right pieces at a straight-edge store. GothBB has all the options you need to create your alternative closet, including the best selection of gothic jackets.

A Leather Jacket, Jeans, and a White Tank Top
There’s nothing more classic than jeans, a white top, and a leather gothic jacket for women. The look goes back decades: women started wearing leather jackets during the counterculture movements of the 1960s and 1970s.To style our gothic jackets this way, find a pair of tight-fitting denim, some combat boots, or high heels (depending on your mood). Opt for dark or black jeans if you’re feeling it. Then, tuck your jeans into your boots and put on your white tank top or T-shirt. Finally, decide if you want a full-length option like our Dare You PU Leather Punk Jacket or our Punk Graffiti Printed Leather Jacket. The first choice has more printed words, while the Graffiti jacket is dripping in hardware. If you’re looking for an ethical gothic jacket for women, our Dare You PU Leather Jacket is vegan.
Grey Joggers and a Cropped Leather Jacket
Are you looking for a more casual look that still has an edge to it? The best gothic jackets are the kind you can wear with anything, whether you’ve been planning your outfit for weeks or just need something to protect you from the cold. We love the look of our cropped women’s jackets with grey joggers, a pair of Vans, and a beanie. Throw on a cropped shirt or tuck a basic tee into your waistband. If it’s really cold, layer a hoodie under your leather jacket and pull the hood over the collar of your gothic jacket. Choose from our Cool Black PU Short & Slim Jacket (Vegan) or our Treasure or Legend Jacket. Finally, pair this look with a messy bun and some dark sunglasses. You’ll look organized and edgy without looking like you’re trying too hard. Looking to immortalize this outfit with an Instagram post? Have a friend stand six feet in front of you, hold the camera to your chest , and then walk towards him or her, swinging your purse. If you’re into a more grunge look, choose this same outfit but layer the oversized Harajuku Horns Skull Print Denim Jacket on top instead of the cropped option.
A Red Dress, Black Fishnets, and a Ruffled Gothic Jacket
Want something that is a little less casual and very sexy? Try layering our Double Breasted Ruffle Pendulum coat over a tight dress and fishnets. We’d recommend you wear a red dress to add color, but black or white will also work . This gothic jacket for women is double-breasted and has black-lace trimmed ruffles, along with a corset back. If you’re wondering how to choose a gothic jacket that’s both gothic and girly, this jacket is a must-have for you. If you’re into cosplay, this would also be the perfect jacket for any time-period characters!
