Trend Recap: 2015

And now the year's almost over! Flew by, right? Miss the tattoo necklaces and raw minerals? See last year's Trend Recap 2014. Here's the Trend Reap for 2015.

I feel like the trends from the past few years (occult symbols, printed leggings/body suits, cutout dresses, 90s shit) continued to this year, and nothing new has replaced them.


2014 Trend that continued to 2015: Moons
hope it continues to 2016!



Hair trend: Buns

Also big boho braids

Cutout dresses/shirts lingerie

Goth Brand of the Year: H&M

Wha? H&M? Yeah, over the past few years, goths have stopped shopping for goth "brand" stuff since the modern look is a throwback to the old-school look, before there were any brands. There are also other reasons. Everyone's budgets are getting tighter, and it's hard to compete with low-cost fast-fashion retailers like H&M and F21. H&M in particular had a great selection of shapeless black things and shiny black things for sale this year. It's jaw-dropping how quickly they can knock off runway and indie designers these days. btw I was at the flagship store yesterday and they've got a home section now??

Honorable Mention: Kill Star
btw I bought this dress
Body Mod of the year: still septum

Trend that didn't last too long: Macrame
Was everywhere for a few months, then gone

Did I miss anything?

  1. Omg yes H&M!! I think i´ve shopped there mostly this year, I mean ONLY there!!! I didn´t even go to thrift stores that much. They have a home section? Hope this comes to Germany soon.
    I have been planning a H&M outfit post actually, they have increased my consumerism habits like hell this year.

    1. The home section was pretty cool! I only saw it at that location. It was like a girlier ikea

    1. Yeah, they do, but I'm personally not a fan of the quality. You get what you pay for

  3. H&M has definitely proved to be the best for goth types this year! It's actually been a year of trends I really like? I'm hoping 2016 has as many good ones as this.

  4. I have found SO much gothy stuff at mainstream retailers this year!! We have had a home section in H&M for quite a while. I agree with your above comment about the quality for H&M......it is inexpensive and readily available but the clothes wash poorly and tend to not last very long.

  5. I got my favourite dress from H&M year ago. I hope they won't stop making awesome collections.
    I feel like nu-goth/ witchy style was a thing this year, even latest Restyle things are pretty much like this. So maybe this inspired H&M, too.

  7. You're right, modern goth is pretty subtle. But it means I can stock up on basics to jazz up in my own way, although I tend to buy more clothes in the winter because the blacks and jewel tones are more to my taste, I'm constantly looking for items I can still wear for summer.

  8. Sadly my budget has been thrown into my flat most of the time so i didnt buy that many new clothes but in 2014 i enjoyed the simple black h&m stuff and diyed them into something 'useful'... And I still did not get any new piercing because i could not decide if i wanted to get that nostril for the 4th(?!) time or get a septum (but since i found a few of my old nostril jewelry... maybe i should start 2016 with that!

  9. Great post! I loved H&M's 2015 collections too, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I really hope the trend of occult symbolism and 'witchy' layered clothing continues in 2016.
