Gothic Lolita is a Japanese fashion style that emulates Victorian dolls. While fashion is popular in Japan, it’s also gaining popularity in the Western world as well. Gothic Lolita is a person who strives to look elegant, almost complete with gloves, parasols, lace, ribbons and more.
This fashion style is meant to make you look youthful and innocent. In this post, we’ll be talking about how to dress Gothic Lolita from head to toe.
1. Gothic Lolita Hair
Hairpieces are good if you have long hair. You can have your hair choppy if you have short hair. You can use a cute little pixie crop with bangs. You can also curl the hair with hairpieces to make it looks like you have long elegant Victorian hair. You can also change your hairstyle with hairpieces and wigs.
2. Gothic Lolita Makeup
Makeup is a crucial aspect in Lolita just like your hair. The makeup depends on your fashion style. Gothic Lolita will often be seen with edgier smoke-colored eyes to add drama to the look.
3. Gothic Lolita Colors
Colors determine the type of Lolita Gothic you want to be. The standard Lolita colors are black, red, off-white, white, baby blue, baby pink, beige, cream, and most pastel shades. You can also use any color you want, but they need to look good together. Experimenting different color is excellent, but choosing the precise color and theme for your Lolita style is half the fun.
4. Gothic Lolita Top
You need to wear well-tailored blouses to look Gothic Lolita. Dark-colored blouses tailored with pintucks, necklines, and embellished cuffs will be ideal. The blouse also needs to fit your body. Stay away from any overly baggy blouses for an elegant gothic Lolita look.
5. Gothic Lolita Skirts
Your Lolita skirt should be over the knee or just a little below your knee. The skirt should sit at your natural waist, not at your hips. If you want to use a jumper skirt, get the high-waisted nature that will cover part of your blouse. Also, make sure that the overall patterns are cohesive enough for a polished look.
6. Gothic Lolita Socks
Socks come in three lengths: ones over the knee, ones under the knee, and normal socks. Most Gothic Lolita’s will wear a dark stocking or other black colors that rest above the knee. For a bit of Punk Lolita style, you could try alternate colors.
7. Gothic Lolita Shoes
