Some unusual lolita styles

We all know that the lolita dress fashion was usually divided into three styles, the sweet lolita, gothic lolita and classic lolita. But as the development of the lolita fashion, the traditional classify could not satisfy people’s demand. And as more elements add to lolita styles, there appear more design. Of course, i was also not very familiar with these new styles, so I use some knowledge (lolitafashion.org) for reference.

Casual Lolita

You could guess the the meaning of this style just from the literally meaning, this style is more optional than the usually styles, it could said be that is just the daily costumes while add some lolita elements, such as the puff sleeve, or falbala ect. But in some details, it did not need so exquisite. Besides, the casual lolita dress also need not to match some very exaggerated accessories, after saw this, you could found that there is some simplicity lolita dresses that we could to to classify are the casual lolita.

Hime Lolita

Hime Lolita

The hime lolita also called the princess lolita, it is one very gorgeous and elegant style. In the workmanship, it is very particular about the detail, and strives to the reach to the “princess-look”. So in the accessory it usually matches the crowns, tiaras and the extravagant hair. And as to achieve to the princess appearance, so it usually adopts some traditional design, and the royalty feelings. This style is looks like the Victorian costume and rococo costume that we mentioned before.

Shiro Lolita

The shiro lolita also called the “white lolita”, just as its name implies, the shiro lolita style require to adopt wearing the white lolita dresses. But this lolita style also have one very strict requirement that it could not match some other color accessories, even the shoes, stocks.

The colors and lolita fashion

We’ve now entered the month of May, and World is getting warmer as each day passes by. The store windows are filled with colorful items, and it’s the season for designs adorned with strawberries and cherries — a Lolita’s favorites. Just thinking about it fills me with excitement! For this second Lesson in Lolita, I would like to talk a little bit about “colors”.

colors and seasons

Colors and Seasons

Unlike most mainstream fashions, the Lolita fashion is not influenced by the changing of the seasons. This is because the princess-like silhouette of a dress and sweet designs complimented by frills and ribbons are the unchanging and fundamental forms of Lolita fashion. What gives these enduring forms their diversity are colors and fabrics. Generally speaking, pastel colors are for the spring and summer seasons, while darker colors are reserved for the fall and winter months. Patterns with fruit motifs and gingham checks are popular designs for spring and summer, and the houndstooth pattern and tartan checks are often seen in fall and winter. With each design, the type of fabric will make a lot of difference to the overall look, but it is important not to look either too chilly or too hot and stifled.

The Basics of Color Coordinating

On many Lolita fashion related community websites, I often see people posing such questions as “I want to coordinate an xxx colored skirt with xxx colored shoes and an xxx colored headdress (hair accessories). It this weird?” The most basic and easiest way to coordinate colors is to match your accessories with the colors (for example the color of the lace) that adorn your “main item” (skirt, dress, etc.). This can be accomplished with an exact match or by matching with a similar color. Most people imagine that coordinating an item with patterns is difficult, but in fact as there are a wider variety of colors on a patterned item, there are more possibilities when it comes to color coordination. Once you start to feel more confident, you can add a contrasting color to accentuate your outfit.

As for the shoes, black, white, brown, red and pink are the most classic colors. You can coordinate these in much the same way, by selecting a color that is the same or similar to your main piece, or by matching it with the focal point of your outfit (such as the lace). If you would like to wear shoes that do not match your overall outfit, carrying a bag or wearing a corsage of the same color will help your footwear “fit” into the whole look.

Overall, a colorful combination will achieve a bright, pop look. If you would like to pursue a dainty and neat look, toning down the variety of patterns is the key. In any case, don’t over do it, and if you feel you have balanced out the amount of each color, then you’re perfect!

 

popular Colors in Lolita Fashion

There are many more ways of combining and coordinating colors than what I have mentioned above. However, I would now like to concentrate on the colors that are most often seen in Lolita fashion. Below are some colors that are considered to be “classics” for the Lolita look, and some examples of popular color combinations.

pink colorPink comes in a range of shades; from eye-catching bright pink to subdued colors mixed with grays or beige, but choosing an elegant shade is always your best bet. Other than white, the “black and pink” combination is often observed, and in such cases a paler pink would be more appropriate, as it achieves a gentle look and avoids looking overly sexy.

 

A refreshing blue color that makes an appearance in the Lolita fashions scene during spring and summer. Think of the blue on the dress of Disney’s Alice In Wonderland. White goes best with this color; however matching it with a pink of a similar tone is also very cute.

A color that is just between pale blue and green. White is the easiest color to coordinate mint with, however matching it with pink in a similar tone would be adorable too. Rather than combining it with dark colors, I would recommend choosing colors that bring out the refreshing look of the shade.

A “natural” color (or “cream” color) is the color of unbleached fabric. The tone and shade can vary slightly depending on the brand. Along with white and black, natural is the standard color for blouses. It looks great with colors infused with a yellow tint (such as brown, beige and salmon pink) giving you a classical and gentle look.

The sweet color of strawberries and cherries! Red comes in a variety of shades, with warmer shades laced with a yellow tint (such as vermillion) and cooler reds with a bluish tone (such as crimson). The former has a bright and active image, while the latter exudes an air of formal sophistication. Wear it with white for a cute look, and with black for a sexy style. It goes excellent with brown in fall and winter, and this remarkably versatile color even goes with blue shades too!

A popular color for the fall/winter season, this color is a matured wine red. A more elegant and sophisticated shade compared to basic red, it has depth and adds luxury, making your outfit more formal and dressy. Bright and gorgeous when combined with white, and utterly bewitching when worn with black; it also looks great with rosy colors.

Another color for the fall/winter season, brown is a color that is classic and calming. Some brands refer to this color as “chocolat”. Coordinate it with cream, beige, pink tinted with yellow or black to complete a classic and elegant look.

The color that represents a pure maiden. Used on blouses, panniers and socks among others, it is a color that Lolita fashion cannot do without. When wearing all white, choosing fabrics of various textures; hard and light, soft and smooth, will prevent you looking flat and plain. For those of you who like bright colors and styles, a pair of pearly white shoes will go a long way. And don’t forget to look after your white items; it doesn’t need to be said that white becomes dirty very easily!

This film tells the noble life of eighteen century and one capable ambitious girl named Georgiana Cavendish, she married the woman who was the only one who was not fascinated by her, for the family’s interests, then began her intricate life.

The gorgeous costumes are one big watching focus in the imperial film, surely the duchess all the same. The costumes of the film set off the Keira Knightley’s classic temperature more vivid, and the costume designer Michael AoKangNa must be the biggest hero. All the costumes in this film is made to measure, and the inspiration and creative concepts also very unique, so it give us a very royal visual feast.

As we know nowadays the very popular lolita dress is originate from the courts dress, so we could saw many lolita element in the costume of the film.

The very important two elements affect lolita dress

As we know the lolita clothing is the simplified western court dress at seventeenth-century and eighteenth-century, and the design inspiration mainly comed from the French Rococo times and Britain Victorian times’ costumes.

rococoThe word “Rococo” was change from the french “rocaille”, and it have the meaning of spiral shell, and use for describe the slastic arts fashion of curve and complicated decorate. The Rococo style also one architectural style based on the Churrigueresque, and it usually use in the interior decoration. The Rococo style usually relect the life interest of Palace noble at French Louis ShiWuShi generation, this style was very popular in europe. The character of Rococo mainly emphasize the beautiful and slim, delicate and cebinet character, such as the bare shoulder and clavice is these design.

And at that time, the women’s costume emphasize the exquisite patterns and the complicated styles, it use a slew of lace, ribbon, bow and the waist design to express the famale’s charming, and stand out the lady’s element image.

Then, I will talk about some main character about lolita dress in Victorian:

When lolita spread to Japan, almost all oriental lolita girls adopt the aulic doll costume as the popular film “Shimotsuma Monogatari”, from then on, the classic lolita wearing come.

Now, the public also look on the lolita dress with the strange eyes, but to most lolita girl, what they desire best is hope people could have the tolerant and percipient attitude to treat the lolita dress and lolita culture.

As we know the Lolita dress devide into three category primary, the sweet lolita dress, gothic lolita dress and classic lolita dress.

The sweet lolita dress adopt pink, powerblue, white and such these pink color, and in the fabric, it usually employ the lace and yarn, want to creat the doll’s lovely and naive. Almost all the eastern lolita girls love this style, and the actress of the film “Shimotsuma Monogatari” also wearing this style lolita dress. This style is my favor, it can express the girls’ sweet feeling that did not want to grow up, perhaps some girls did not young, but they could not put down the naive and lovely complex.

If you don’t like the so sweet style what I mentioned, you could also choose this, the elegant lolita dress. It totally color tone is the black and white, what it wants to express be the mysterious and horrific. These style suits some ripe girl, its style is very cool and changeable, and it often give people one visual impact.

The classic lolita dress is similar with the sweet lolita dress, but the color use the simple hue, and the cut also emphasize the elegant feeling. The lace are fewer than the sweet lolita dress, and except these, the ruffle is their best character. The integral style comes up the noble and elegant style.
