Lolli style

If you think you were born real late, like neat neck ties and brogues, and think a well fit tailored dress is the best way to be a lady, then hello and welcome to the Lolita; a look that transcends time and space and robes you with élan and elegance.

Read on as I tell you how to do the look

First of the Lolita has many versions, Goth, punk, dolly, sober, plain, Victorian, kinky, futurist, Steampunk, grunge; it’s a long list, and that means A-you can try a lot of things and B-you’ll need to get picky about the style you prefer best.

Also the Lolita involves dressing like a girl, so skirts are okay. Stockings can be knee length or full length, and panty hose is okay too. And it’s not all fluffy dresses. Head accessories are not a necessity; but the stockings are. And you can use the traditional tea dress too.

Frills in moderation make for a classy charm.

Taylor Swift is a Lolita, minus the head gear and stockings; but that’s because she keeps a low profile on that.

Nicky Minaj too.
Nicky Minaj too. As does Dakota Fanning.

Lolli styleI guess pure Lolita is a very questionable fashion mainstream, but that’s only because it is the girl peter pan of the lot. It is a look that is not preferred because it ends up getting sexed up, and it’s viewed as a bedroom trend as opposed to the fashion movement it is; but if this week in Paris is any proof of it, I think the look is about to get sassy.
