Step 1: Accessories
((I made sure you understood what goth really is, so no worries.))
This is the easiest...Studded Collars, cross necklaces, rings or earrings along with bracelets. 90's jewelry (yes from the 90's it wasn't so bad back in the day.) Even the backpacks from back in the day with aliens on it works perfect. Chain necklaces and body harness with roses on it. Necklaces with stones on them, jewelry with skulls or skull shapes, eyeball bows ect. (You could DIY a lot of this.) Even anime inspired things are perfectly A- OK. If you want more ideas just look up pastel goth.
