Lolita goes through cycles over time; the big three styles (Gothic, Classic, and Sweet) all had their eras of peak popularity. Fans of old-school treasure their pieces from the early 2000’s. But every fashion has its trends, and lolita is no exception to that.
Trend you really Loved
While the term never really caught on in the international scene, some lolitas did pick up on the idea of combining prints and fabrics in an over-the-top manner. It hasn’t gathered enough followers to become a full-fledged substyle like ‘Gothic’ or ‘Sweet’, or even a strong theme like ‘Sailor’, but it appears from time to time, and I love how all the contrasting elements come together as a vivid whole.
Trend you didn’t really care for
UTKs, or under-the-knee socks, are something I can’t bring myself to wear. They’re a staple of old-school lolita and look great on some people. However, I really prefer the over-the-knee kind, as I feel short socks make me look stumpy! I will wear shorter socks sometimes, but with longer length dresses.
