Good morning my darlings!
Knee-length skirts, petty-coats, corsets… they’re all a goth girl ever dreams of as she grows up. Pussybows, big hair, black stockings – we all know about it, but where did it originate? And why do we love them so much?
According to http://www.virtualjapan.com:
“Lolita fashion is a subculture in Japan influenced by Victorian and Edwardian era dress. Also including the costume dress worn in the Rococo era in France, Lolita fashion is best known for its cross over into Gothic style and the wide array of sub-styles represented by its practitioners. Most often, Lolita fashion refers to those who wear skirts or dresses to their knees, a petticoat, long, often times monochromatic socks, and a wide array of accessories covered in lace or ribbon. The goal in many cases is to imitate the appearance of a child or a doll.”
There are different types of Lolita categories:
Gothic Lolita, Sweet Lolita, Casual Lolita, Hime Lolita, Shiro Lolita, Kuro Lolita, Classic Lolita, Country Lolita, Sailor Lolita, Wa Lolita, Guro Lolita, Punk Lolita, Ero Lolita, Cosplay Lolita and Kodona Aristocrat.
It’s been labelled as “street fashion” in Japan, but nowadays it’s quite popular all over the world.
Love it as much as I do?
Have a fab day peeps!
