Summer brights? Not for our shoedrobe. Let the sun shine, and keep your footwear on the dark side. Time to try Sunshine Goth.

Sunshine Goth: Catwalk Trend

Candy is something you eat, bright is something you are: we’re keeping our shoes a lil gothic this season. Recalling everything we saw on the catwalks in Milan and NYC, we’re taking inspo from our inner-goth. And, you’ll be pleased to hear, there’s no Cyberdog in sight.

All black everything.

Girls who wear black lead colourful lives. Let your life do the talkin’ and wear head-to-toe black. Our uniform is a satin cami top, distressed skinny jeans and a pair of barely there heels – off duty done the PD way.

Want some more inspo? Check out our ‘Black is the New’ Pinterest board.

Add texture.

Mesh, lace and leather will be your SS16 BFFs. Just ’cause you’re wearing black from top to toe, doesn’t mean it has to be all the same. On a night out? Try a jersey top with leather trousers and mesh detail heels.

Denim days.

Acid wash? Let’s leave that to the 80s. This season denim’s getting dark and stormy and we’re opting for indigo dyes over their lighter cousins. We’re going for skinnies, jean jackets and denim shoes for a real triple threat.

Got metal? Stamp it out in the trend we can’t. stop. wearing. at PDHQ. Simple rivet detailing has been taken straight from our fave pair of jeans, and have landed on our new-in, becoming our go-to for all Summer events.

Lace ’em up.

If you’re anything like us, your shoe-drobe has got a fair few lace up styles already. Time to give them a lil extra lovin’ this season, as lace ups aren’t going anywhere. Pair your lace up heels with denim for a look the IT crowd are sure to be lappin’ up when they hit Shoreditch House’s pool come summertime.

Knee jerk reaction.

Thought sayin’ bye to Winter meant leaving your knee-high boots unloved ’til the next season? No chance. Instead of going for faux suede styles, change up your SS16 thigh high boot game with caged styles that will look killer with a tan.

How are you planning to wear the Sunshine Goth trend this season? Tweet us pics so we can see.
