Grungey, layerable and androgynous, Noctex is an alternative brand making sustainable clothing with a goth post-apocalyptic vibe. They use deadstock (that’s fabric that factories don’t want any more) to create pieces that are good for the planet and are flattering for loads of different body shapes. You can even wear their pieces year round – it’s all about the way you layer. 

From a softly draped top or a dramatic kaftan to a teeny tiny lace up top, here are our favourite Noctex picks that you’ll love to have in your wardrobe.

Vivienne Maxi Skirt

Wear with the matching top, layer over a band tee or a cami – the Vivienne Maxi Skirt is a unique piece that’s inspired by lingerie. The corset detailing is real, and you can create splits at a height that you want. It’s stretchy, so it clings to every curve, making you feel like absolute fire.

Val long sleeve top

Comfy, versatile and effortlessly stylish, the Val long sleeve top is a beautiful addition to your wardrobe. Made from a mesh knit jersey, it’s super soft and light, with an asymmetrical hem, a cowl neck and – the best bit – thumb holes! Perfect for cosy goth days as well as for more dressed up fits. 

Terra shorts

A pair of shorts, or a skort? Either way, they’re practical and have a post-apocalyptic edge to them. Style with a tank top for a hot goth look for the warmer months, or layer up with leggings, boots and leg warmers for the colder ones.      

Tessera dress

The Tessera dress is one of those dresses that becomes a go-to. Not sure what to wear? The Tessera. Need something you know you feel good in? The Tessera. Made from a micro-rib, dense cotton, this dress features racer back style straps for a comfy yet super-flattering fit. 

Rise kaftan

A sleeveless tunic perfect for when you don’t know what to wear. Whether the weather is warm or cool, the Rise kaftan has your back. With high slits and every girl’s dream (pockets!), this piece is gorgeously versatile – wear with arm warmers, over a long sleeve top or just over a pair of cycle shorts. 

Mel sweater

One of those days where you want to feel like you, but you don’t want to wear something stiff and uncomfortable? The Mel sweater has lots of beautiful detail that will make you feel like you made an effort. It’s made from a lightweight slinky ribbed cotton blend, it features angled cuffs, extra long sleeves and, of course, thumbholes! 

Element shrug

A super versatile piece that you can layer over vest tops and strappy dresses, and under baggy band tees in the colder weather – the Element shrug allows you to get even more use out of your wardrobe. It’s even made from thermal cotton so you know you’ll be kept toasty and warm. 

Elise crop pants

As comfy as yoga pants but so much more stylish and versatile, the Elise crop pants are super flattering whatever your body shape – and whatever your style too. With a high-rise waist and a split flare, combined with a crop hem, you can pair them with anything from an oversized shirt for a relaxed corp goth look to a band tee for a more grunge feel.

Sullen top

Feeling yourself? The Sullen tank top is a divine addition to your summer wardrobe, and – like almost all of Noctex’s pieces – it’s super cute for layering too. The lace up front is so sexy. We love wearing this piece with a harness, or a mesh top underneath (or both, let’s face it). 

Dina top

With long sleeves, a square neckline and cut outs at the back, the Dina top is a simple yet stylish basic to have in your wardrobe. Perfect to pull out for a low-key day running errands or to dress up a little with a harness for a casual dinner date – all the while showing a little skin with the cut outs.
