Back in the day, when I was a teenage goth, I spurned the casuals and their flagrant wearing of pastel colours and sportswear. For me, the rules were clear : clothes had to be black, jewellery had to be silver, hair had to be dyed; crimped and/or backcombed and the only acceptable footwear other than DMs were black Converse baseball boots.

I would wrestle on the bed, squeezing myself into drainpipe black jeans that Russell Brand would be proud of, lace up my All Stars, paint my nails black and head off into the night to drink snakebite & black and shoe-gaze to The Jesus and Mary Chain.
Times have changed now. I've grown up. I no longer sit in my darkened bedroom listening to The Cure, I've gone off Robert Smith, and I have embraced the world of colour.
