Hi, I’ve finally decided to try my hand with lolita, but I’m having a lot of issues trying to make my first coord. I follow this blog often, and go through the tags everyday, but I’m still having issues.
I want to do a sweet themed coord around Metamorphoses’ CL/Magical Painting skirt in black, but I look very bad in pinks and light colors, and all of the blouses I’ve found to match it are in pink colors or wouldn’t look very good on someone with a rectangle body shape.
It’s been killing me, because I love that skirt with a passion, but I haven’t found a single thing to coordinate it with in a sweet style that isn’t too pink. May I ask for help?
Response from Lolita Tips:
Black is definitely the way to go. Black blouses for Sweet Lolita aren’t as hard to find as one might think. For example, I feel like a blouse like this would be good for your body type because it has a lot of fullness but are still soft and feminine. It doesn’t have a high neckline but it the roundness of it will give you a softer look. You can also tuck it into the skirt to accentuate your waist but you’ll still have the fullness and flow of the blouse because of the way it’s constructed. You could then wear it with a pink necklace or add a pin or rosette to bring some of the pink from the skirt into the blouse without having too much pink that it wouldn’t look good on you.
