Day and night cordinates with Starlight Carnevale

I love how you can get such different looks by changing the color of the print!

Submitted question:

I just bought JSK I of Merry Making in the Ghost Town in red, and am trying to put together a coord for (or really, accessories)  For now, I was thinking of either doing a bat or skeleton themed coord, to keep things simple for me, as I’m still fairly new to lolita and not the best at putting accessories together. Since this is my dream dress, I really want to have a nice looking coord with it. Here are my two ideas:

Bats:

Bracelet https://www.etsy.com/listing/83387073/bat-bangle-silver-bat-bracelet-animal?ref=favs_view_24

Ring https://www.etsy.com/listing/200038490/black-glitter-bat-halloween-ring?ref=favs_view_18

Purse https://www.etsy.com/listing/201605325/bat-hand-bag?ref=favs_view_4

Hair accessory https://www.etsy.com/listing/199121842/silverwing-circlet-antique-silver-bat?ref=favs_view_11

Tights https://www.etsy.com/listing/62642232/smallmedium-brand-new-color-dark-grey?ref=shop_home_active_6

 

Skeleton:

Ring https://www.etsy.com/listing/165413856/halloween-ring-cemetery-plot-with?ref=favs_view_17

Tights https://www.etsy.com/listing/202120043/halloween-unique-costume-skull-skeletons?ref=favs_view_15

Of course if neither of these look nice I’m open to other suggestions instead. :)

Thank you!!!

Response from Lolita Tips:

As far as accessories go I really like the bat one. The only thing I would do different (and it isn’t really a change, it’s just adding on) would be to add a full hair accessory that the circlet can be an addition to like a bonnet, half bonnet, floral corsage, veil, something to make it look more Lolita than the circlet alone looks.
The thing I’m not loving about the skeleton one is the tights. I think skeleton tights are fine in some cases, but I feel that in this particular case it would look quite costumey. I do adore the bat tights though.

Hello there! I'm trying to put a coord together for btssb's Guilty Meltin’ Sweets Town Jumper Skirt Ⅱ in Navy & Brown or Black & Black but I'm having some trouble with finding a blouse. Any suggestions?

I would recommend something with a high collar so you don’t have anything distracting from the super cool bat-like neckline of the JSK.

Hi! I was wondering if I could have your opinion… Do you think this bag: http://www.storenvy.com/products/7997556-free-ship-lolita-star-hand-bag in gold, might look good with Merry Making in the Ghost Town JSK II in black? This is the one I have: 

If not do you have any tips of one that might work that isn’t coffin shaped? I’m trying not to spend over $50. Thank you so much for your time!

Response from Lolita Tips:

I think that bag would work well. Another option that I thought of that I think would be super cute with it would be a backpack like this. I think the heart shape and the fact that it’s a backpack give it a sort of cutesy feel but then it has the bat wings which I think suit the print perfectly.

Hi! I was looking for some socks or tights (preferably tights) that would be good for aatp's Time of the Roses in navy as well as classic lolita in general, what do you recommend? Also, I don't really like heavily printed socks or tights. Thank you very much!

Everyone knows how much I love lace tights and sheer tights with opaque details so naturally I think these in either color they’re available in would be perfect. Other than a simple floral design like that, the best I could think of for someone who doesn’t like heavily printed legwear would be plain navy, cream, or dusty pink tights or socks.

Hey, I recently purchased Alice and the Pirates ‘Guilty Meltin’ Sweets Town Jumper Skirt ’ in black. But I’m having a hard time finding a good blouse. Black is too dark and doesn’t show off the bat straps (which are too good not to show off).
I think a lavender or antinque/rosey-pink would look nice, like in the test I made. Those blouses are either sold out, or won’t fit me though (plus size), and I’m having trouble finding something. Would you have any recommendations? Or another color you think would work?

Response from Lolita Tips:

I think the pink is a really good color for it. I think it really brings out the print and shows off the awesome straps. This one is a little lighter but it may be a good option.

What type of blouse would look good with the AttP Cards Queen JSK in Navy? Should I go with something w/o a neck ribbon/jabot since it has the little bow at the chest?

The bow is tiny so if you were to cover it up it wouldn’t be a huge deal. I only recommend avoiding those when there’s a big bow or other big detail on the dress that a bow on the blouse could get in the way of. I think something with a high neck would suit the JSK well, with or without a neck bow.

Hello, I'm thinking of buying aatp JSK Black cat, witch and apple tree in red and was wondering what kind of headdress would go well with it. Eiter a red Bonnet or a black Bow. But I can't really decide which would look better.. All in all I would wear a black lacy blouse and black socks with red shoes, as its my first lolita coord I am a bit nervous. Thank you so much in advance!

Why not both? You could do a red bonnet with a black bow in the brim to pull together both of the colors.
