Another clothing goal I have for autumn is to start breaking the rules of lolita and wearing it far more casually. I have enough skirts and tee shirts to pull some really adorable looks together that are far more “me”. I couldn’t do it very much in the summer because it’s so hot, and lolita involves layers. I think ALBinwonderland, and Skullita do AMAZING with this. The coordinates I want to do are not ultra casual, but they do include non-lolita items like sneakers, tee shirts, or skirts that aren’t actual lolita skirts. I want to be able to plan non-lolita outfits that feature some of my lolita skirts accessories.
I feel like doing things like this can help me cultivate a better personal style, both in and out of lolita. I definately think it’s good for any lolita who understands the rules to branch out and have a bit of fun with their clothes.
Even in Japan, girls are wearing lolita in a bit more casual way, and mixing it with other styles. The store, Park Harajuku even has a character that wears a slightly less elaborate form of lolita! I think breaking the rules to such a strict fashion can create something new and exciting! I’m so ready to try it out.
