With stars like Rihanna leading the gothic, punk style trend and edgy vampires popping up as sex symbols everywhere from Twilight to True Blood, it's no surprise that designers have taken clothing and accessories to the next level. We're seeing metallic studs and points and shiny materials like patent leather and finished georgettes as added details of choice. Reds, blacks and greys are the new backdrops and blood red lips and pale, pale complexions are gracing the runways. One designer to jump on the "sexy-vampire" band-wagon? Dominic Jones. Jones' designs are right on with the current edgy, rocker, "don't get too close or I'll suck your blood" craze, but still makes it his own. Take his black and gold "fangs belt" for example. Black belts are nothing new, but the gold fangs meeting in the middle definitely make it different! The great thing about this belt is that you can wear it to amp up a simple sheath dress and add some attitude into your look, and then lend it to your crazy, over-the-top, super-trendy younger sister to wear over her slashed leggings and oversized tees.Price: Inquire at Dominic Jones for details!Who Found It: idabone was first to add the Dominic Jones "Fangs" Belt to the Hive.

Doc Martens, which began as the footwear of choice for British Punk heads and soon became a style staple of American Gen X-ers, have also updated their classic 8-eye boot beyond the basic dark colors- black, cherry red, hunter- to include royal blue, bubble gum pink, and€¦banana yellow? Hmmm. These are not your mother's (or your own) Doc Martens, but let€™s take a look at the new offerings. Click the slideshow to see more!
