Modern Goth Couture hits the streets 

I remember watching The Craft with my older brother, when I was still too young to see Naomi Campbell manifest murder, rodents and insects with glee. Put simply, I was horrified, but insanely entranced. These girls were seriously cool.

Now, I will admit to being a victim of the teddy bear backpack as a child, thanks to the stylings of Alicia Silverstone and her girlfriends in the pop culture treasure that is "Clueless." (I know, I know, whatever.) I didn’t appreciate The Craft and the way these girls made goth look so cutting edge and stylish until now. This movie was made the same year Hot Topic went public---coincidence? I don’t think so.

Apparently some popular designers re-watched this cult classic recently as well. Low Luv X Erin Wasson, the jewelry line by the supermodel turned designer (and a favorite of high-profile designer Alexander Wang), laid out a summer 2011 collection featuring a focus on gold-leafed miniature bone charms that just screamed for a plaid skirt and white button down. In February, bondage, studded leather, and Courtney Love worthy mesh cut-outs took over runways from names such as Prabal Gurung, Thierry Mugler, Alexander McQueen, and Emanuel Ungaro.

Clearly this modern day goth couture is all a little more oversexed, but the fun cross between innocent and looking for trouble, that The Craft wardrobe crew pulled off over a decade ago, is how every day trendsetters are taking to the streets. Here are a few key pieces for your personal remake:
