Hi! I was wondering if you could help me figure out some last things about a coord I’ve been putting together and if you can just give me your opinion on it overall. It’s my first coord so I’m not entirely sure what fits together and whatnot-
So far it consists of this OP in red, these tights, and these shoes in black. I don’t know why I didn’t buy the matching headbow right when I bought the dress(I thought I could use something else I guess??), so now I’m kind of stumped as to put on my head, since I don’t really want to interrupt my current order and pay separate shipping for the bow alone. I kind of feel like what I have so far uses too much black, so I was thinking of maybe using a red rose clip, but I also feel like adding the sudden red element would through the rest of the black pieces I’m using off balance. Thanks a lot for your help!
Response from Lolita Tips:
What you have so far looks great. I wouldn’t worry too much about using too much black because the red, being naturally brighter, stand out a bit more than the red does so I would say the coord looks fairly balanced. That being said it wouldn’t be difficult at all to use both red and black for your headwear. When I saw the coord I first thought of this hat as your headwear. It’s black and red and has pearls that also fit with the dress and the veil adds a softness that I think helps tone down the starkness of the stripes. It’s currently sold out but the shop it’s from takes custom requests so you could ask that another be made. Of course it doesn’t have to be that exact hat but it’s a good example of what you could use. Then you could maybe add a few more accessories. Black lace gloves or wrist cuffs with a red ring and maybe a red and black necklace or choker to fill in that sort of empty space at the neckline, perhaps something like this.
