Gothic Gloves and Arm Wear

Gothic gloves are an important part of the overall look many Goths want to incorporate into their personal expression, and there are a wide variety of options to choose from.

Among the most popular elements of Gothic gloves are fishnet, laced, corset and fingerless. There are exceptions to this of course, but overall one or more of these will be part of the gloves, especially gloves worn by Gothic women, which they're more popular with.

Most Gothic gloves are also fingerless, and are either wrist gloves, gloves extending over the forearm and slightly past the elbow, or gloves somewhere in between the two.

Colors of Gothic gloves are predominately black, as are most clothing choices, but can be seen in other colors like red or white.

Another pretty cool part of Gothic gloves is the circlet on the middle finger, which is placed almost like a ring extending from the wrist to the finger.
