I have answered this before but I honestly can’t tell you what tag it would be under so it doesn’t seem fair for me to not answer it again. (It’s also 2:30am so I don’t feel like hunting it down.)
Most Lolitas actually don’t just stick to one style. While many do stick to just one, it’s just a matter of taste (and sometimes funds). Some Lolitas only wear one style because that’s the only style they really identify with. But for many Lolitas, myself included, one style just isn’t enough. I like a lot of things, I like a lot of colors and themes and looks and because of that I try to give myself different style options so I can dress to suit my mood. While it is recommended to stick to just one style when you’re first starting out so you can work on building a versatile and workable wardrobe, there is no reason you should have to only wear one style of Lolita forever.
Does this look ok as my first coord? I plan on using mainly white accessories and some gold. I’m not really sure about the blouse though, is it ok with the vest? The neckline is quite plain…
Response from Lolita Tips:
The blouse is the only thing I don’t like. I think the fact that it’s black chiffon is nice, but as you said, it’s very plain and the collar style isn’t great for Lolita. I would just suggest replacing the blouse with something better suited for Lolita, black works, but you could also do a white blouse to help balance the white that’s currently at the bottom of the coord.
