Goth fashion can be rather impractical and can cause problems on a daily basis but here's some tips to resolve them.
You may of noticed if you wear a petticoat or poofy skirt the wind will pick up the skirt more and flash everybody, instead of using your purse to weight it down wear bloomers and use double sided tape on your skirt and petticoat/tights/bare legs/etc.
Long or bell style sleeves can dip into food and if you're a wheelchair user they may get caught in the wheels. Use sleeve garters to avoid this or you could make your own wrist cuffs.
Rotate your petticoat around and puff it up whenever you can to prevent a flat petticoat.
If your clothes knock things over or get caught on things, just make a joke and say sorry. Also try holding all of your clothing in front of you as you may trip over on your trailings.
Use starch spray and turn your petticoat inside out and store it inside out.
Salt stains may appear at the bottom of your skirt or trousers if you live in a snowy area, chuck your skirt straight in the wash before it can dry.
Avoid flashing people in windy weather by wearing Bloomers.
When you're climbing into a car or if the wind blows while you're wearing a skirt, gather all the material to one side and hold it with one hand.
Buy a lent brush to brush away pet hair and general fluff off your clothes, you may not even notice any lint under you're under UV light and it looks like you have major dandruff.
Remove pet fur before cleaning, it clumps and becomes harder to get rid of after cleaning.
Store clothing away at all times and don't leave dirty clothes on the floor. Close your wardrobe door and keep things in containers with lids so they can't get in.
Walk up the stairs on a slight side so you can fit your pointy boots on the stairs.
Put your shoes on after putting on your skirt and before you lace yourself in a corset.
Regularly get your boots treated to prevent damages.
Finding your keys in your black mass of a bag is a real nightmare, so I sewed in a mini pocket inside my bag so I could find it easily. Or you could tie a bright ribbon around your keys.
Keep a plastic bag in your purse to place a wet umbrella in so your bag doesn't get soaked with rain.
Socks or other accessories such as leg warmers can roll down a lot, I solved this by using sock glue. You could try elasticised sock-toppers and deco them yourself, perhaps even garters could work with your outfit.
When your blacks fade but your clothing is still wearable chuck all your blacks in a dye bath so they all match.
