Submitted question #802:
Could this work as a loli outfit?
Response from Lolita Tips:
I don’t think the skirt will work. It doesn’t look like it has enough fabric in it to hold a petticoat that would give it a Lolita shape.
Aside from that, I’m not sure about putting a cardigan with a long-sleeved blouse. The two separate items are fine, but it seems pretty useless and I’m not sure how they would look together. You would wear a cardigan with a short-sleeved blouse or OP or a JSK, but I’m not sure how it’ll look over something with long sleeves.
Blooming Snow White anon here! Sorry for the lack of info. It's the regular jsk in pink, and I was hoping to go for something a bit more on the classic side rather than sweet. Thanks for the fast reply!
I think the biggest hurtle to jump would be a blouse because of the neck straps. If you wanted to remove them you could easily put it with a lot of different styles of blouses. Something in ivory/white/offwhite (whichever color the lace is I’m having trouble telling which) with a high collar would be a very elegant Classic look, but if you wanted to keep the neck straps you could look for something with a low Peter Pan collar and tuck the straps under the collar. You could also do a blouse with a square neckline so you’ll just see the sleeves and then the straps won’t have any competition. Then you could do lace tights or lace socks to compliment the gorgeous lace in the dress. From there you could continue with the pinks and whites into the hair accessory, shoes, bag, etc. or you could get away from that and do an accent color like the red you find in the print. Red shoes, if you like bonnets an ivory/white/offwhite bonnet with pink and red roses tucked in the brim would be pretty, or a flower headdress like this. Or you could do something more simple like a corsage. For jewelry I think gold would be really pretty, maybe with touches of the other colors in it. The gold jewelry Baby makes would be perfect. Then you could do lace gloves with a pretty ring for an added little Classic feel.
Hello! I'm a relatively new lolita, and I just purchased my first brand piece, Baby's Blooming Snow white jsk in Pink. As some one who usually dresses in gothic I've come to the realization that I really have no ideas for a coord. Any tips or suggestions? Thank you!
Well there are a lot of things I could suggest but I don’t really have much to go on. First of all which JSK do you have? Blooming Snow White came in two JSK styles, a regular and underbust which is important because it can effect the blouse you choose. Then I need you to come up with at least a general idea of where you want to take it. Do you want more Sweet? More Classic? Hime maybe? Did you want to use things that can work easily into your existing Gothic wardrobe or did you want to try a completely new concept?
My coordinate for International Lolita Day!
Absolutely gorgeous! I can’t wait to see it worn!
An anon sent me a link to this and it perfectly matches what another anon was asking about fur with Hime Lolita.
