How to Dress Like a Health Goth

In order to dress like a health goth one must acquire a certain amount of black activewear, such as these health goth essentials.

A health goth is a new generation of goths that enjoys a healthy lifestyle while still wearing all black and being depressed. This might seem contradictory but staying positive all the time isn’t for everyone.

In order to dress like a health goth draw inspiration from the following classic black pieces.


1. Leggings
