What's The True Lolita Fashion?

Lolita fashion can be considered a revival of the old style European style clothing from the 1900s and further on down in history. Like how trends are brought back with a flare in modern fashion, Japan has taken it to the next level by shortening the skirts, adding prints, and other cute qualities to the style. Lolita is the furthest thing from a fetish but the ladies who wear the style actually are trying NOT to show skin. Think of a porcelain doll elegantly on display for people to admire. That is the living portrayal of what these lolitas are trying to achieve. There are various styles of lolita and depending on that could be the form of people's confusion as well.

Gothic Lolita is more based probably on the doll concept. They're considered dark and morbid. Age appropriation would be everything between the early teens to late twenties depending on how the clothes are worn. In the West honestly speaking, I feel like we have a ways to go on figuring on what best suits what clothing because it's still a fairly new concept. Shiro Lolita is all white dresses but can also be considered in the gothic category as well as Guro Lolita which is like...blood everywhere. No really. Blood everywhere. Usually it's tainted white clothes. Think of a cute girl going on a rage spree at a hospital or something. Guro is based on a horror concept! In all these are dark concepts that are all gothic lolita dresses. Punk rock can also being incorporated with plaids, asymmetrical skirts, boots, ect.

Ame Lolita (Literally translating into Sweet Lolita) is based on the 'kawaii' concept that perhaps outsiders are more likely to be familiar with thanks to media exposure. The problem is that 'kawaii' was marketed horribly. Kawaii can differ person to person... Tho in this case 'kawaii' is usually cute prints, lots of sweets like cake, whipped cream, cookies, icecreams are seen as prints on the sweet lolita dresses. They usually wear cute pastel colors like baby pink, yellow, brown, ect. and are seen with a light make-up. This is BY FAR the most difficult of sub-genres to pull off because it does look ridiculous at a certain age. Perhaps this is where people get the idea that this is age play, because it looks like something a little girl would wear. I do suggest if you do wear sweet lolita to be in your teens or have a baby faced look or you could come off as too old to be dressing the way you are.
Vintage Floral Pattern Victorian Style Classic Lolita Top
A good alternative to Sweet Lolita is Classic Lolita. It is a blend of the gothic and sweet style. Classic lolita dresses also focuses on browns as wells as creams, red, green..unique colors! They can be plain prints or solid colors like the other styles. It can be a bit more age appropriate depending on the print and execution. It's kind of a country-fied feel. Straw hats and bags and checker print for the warmer months and velvet reds, and bonnets for the cooler seasons. Think of Classic Lolita dressing based on the seasons more so than the other two.
Guys fashion usually aristocrat (tho ladies can be these with frilly blouses and longer skirts!!) or the younger version being kodona. All are based on being dandies I suppose you could say. I don't have much experience in this category but think of really nice coats with buttons and boots.. They can almost look princely if not dapper!
In all the desire to dress in lolita clothing from experience is not only to feel and be unique but to really put effort into how you dress. These girls usually legitimately feel like ladies. They can feel like a princess or some type of girl in high society dressed the way she is perhaps having tea with the other girls and looking at the latest trends.

Back to Nature — Becoming A Classic Lolita

Navy Blue Long Sleeves Vintage Classic Lolita Dress
Many people believe that lolita is only a girl’s play which is all about little girls imagine themselves as pink princesses or barbie dolls. As a matter of fact, lolita itself has a much broader meaning than that and there are deeper cultural meaning buried in this short term. Today, let us go explore another side of this lolita culture by getting to know a very special style of lolita -----classic lolita.
Red Long Sleeves Classic Lolita Dress
Compared with the traditional impression of lolita clothing being colorful and dreamy, classic lolita is a more down-to-earth type. Influenced by the classic English culture such as Renaissance, Elizabethan, Baroque, Rococo, Victorian, and Edwardian, classic lolita meant to be refined, elegant and all in all classic. The colors of classic lolita dresses usually used are neutral dusty ones like grey, ivory or navy blue. Intricate floral patterns are also commonly used on the dresses. Besides, there are also some other features as a classic lolita such as high-neck collars and a-line skirts. Therefore, unlike sweet lolita dresses or gothic lolita dresses,classic lolita dresses favor simplicity instead of sophistication. We also might consider it to be more natural compared with the other categories of lolita. Of course, if you consider it too dull, headdresses like bonnets, berets, dress hats, braided hats, mini hats, rose corsages are also available for you to use. One other thing to mention is that the skirt length is always overknee or even longer for that it is overall a much mature type of dressing style. Due to the nature of the style, many Lolitas consider Classic Lolita to be their natural choice as they turn older.
A classic lolita is by all means a safe choice for any lolita fans who was still in hesitation about being too much a stand-out in the crowd. Dressed up as a classic lolita, fulfill your lolita dream and still be elegant and low key. That’s a style that you really don’t want to miss!

If you tend to be a little more consevative, the traditional Gothic Lolita,which wears plain black clothing with white lace is high recommended for you. It is more like a dark version of the ordinary sweet lolita. Therefore, in addition to be a still sweet lady, you can also add something gloom and obsure to the usual style, a great choice for a late-night gothic party. If you are intense enough and are longing for something even spicier, another type of gothic lolita is definitely gonna be your choice. This type of gothic lolita dresses are less cute and more “gothic” for the common usage of motifs like crosses, bats, coffins and crowns. There are more choices of colors for this type of gothic lolita such as wine, royal blue, deep plum, white, silver and gold.
Generally speaking, the style is dark, cute and elegant, filled with gothic elements. Compared with the sweet lolita dresses, it has less ribbons and lace. For fans of gothic culture and mysterious elements and also someone who wants something less poofy, a Gothic Lolita is something great to try out. Of course, usual lolita accessories like overknee socks, headdresses and platform shoes are always available to be added if you want.

For fans of Japanese comics, sweet Lolita is no stranger. Ribbons, laces, pearls and numerous delicate details could always dazzles you. You cannot be overlooked as a sweet Lolita at any occasion because every part of it is eye-catching enough and symbolic enough. Sweet Lolita is a symbol of innocence and magic while it is nothing short of being mysterious and seductive.
