Two of today’s brightest young actresses in Hollywood love goth-inspired looks. It is quite refreshing since we do not often see women wearing this outfit, especially during the warm summer months.

Shailene Woodley and Lily Collins wore all-black ensembles consisting of a cropped top and midi skirt at several promotional events—Shailene for her new movie, The Spectacular Now, and Lily for her new Seventeen magazine cover. Shailene, 21, wore a Proenza Schouler Resort 2014 outfit, while Lily, 24, went for a Céline Pre-Fall 2013 leather skirt.

Both these young actresses looked utterly gorgeous. However, don’t you think they would have looked even better in more uplifting and colorful hues?
