Pastel goth (might include
or nu goth), is a new trend where usually
girls (on Tumblr) will dye their hair pastel colors, wear hipster/vintage-looking clothing that
vaguely) promotes goth images, and blend cutesy images/colors with skulls, inverted crosses, etc. They try to justify
their look as gothic with a pastel color palette although it is more reminiscent of a lighter emo/scene look. Often looked down upon by many goths as posers (most pastel goths don't actually listen to goth music or enjoy its true elements). Also disliked by Nirvana fans
because of their loose
use of the term grunge
to describe themselves.
