PostSubject: STREET STYLE: Lolita   Fri Jan 29, 2010 7:07 pm

Lolita is one of my favorite styles (I've bumped it down to my #2 however,I'm always changing styles!)
Nothing to with sexual themes however,it is more associated with elegance and sweetness.

from the Lolita handbook :
"Lolita is a very hard style to define, but in my opinion what really defines it is it's childlike innocence and old-fashioned elegance. It's distinctive style is most obviously from the Victorian and Rococo eras, but you will see a lot of influence from the Edwardian period and even some 40s and 50s American clothing styles - any time period in which fashion was elegant and beautiful. The bell-shaped skirt provides the typical silhouette, but it is neither what makes something lolita nor is it required of all lolitas. There is no one item of clothing or a color or trim that embodies all that is lolita - it is a unique aesthetic that's hard to perfect. To some there's a lifestyle attached - not only wearing the clothes as often as possible but also taking part in lolita activities and following a certain code of etiquette - but to others it is merely a clothing style. Lolita can be an escape from the mundane, or an attempt to return to a more innocent time in life. It's something a little bit different to everyone, but what lolitas have in common is a shared desire to wear really awesome clothes."

There's many sub-styles in lolita, and clothing brands that specialize in those styles.

Here are a few styles:

Sweet

BRANDS:
Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Angelic Pretty
Metamorphose temps de fille

Classic(my personal fav.)

BRANDS:
Mary Magdalene
Victorian Maiden
Innocent World
Juliette et Justine

Gothic

BRANDS:
Moi Meme Moitie
Alice and the Pirates

There's many more styles out there for all those different tastes!
