Lolita 52 Challenge: Week 1

~5 pieces that every Lolita wardrobe should have, regardless of style~
  1. Blouses. Even if you wear OPs, blouses are still handy. I'd recommend a black one and white/cream for starters as they go with most things, and then you can add in other colours as you go.

  2. Bloomers. I know a lot of people don't bother, but I think they're a must. I even wear them with regular dresses, if I don't wear shorts under. It's nice to know that no one will see your panties if it's windy, and little extra pouffiness and lace never hurt anyone.

  3. Petticoat. Doesn't matter which style, you're going to need one. Cupcake or A-line to start depending on style, but Bodyline tutus are super handy for those shorter pieces and for layering. White goes with everything, black may show through thinner fabrics.

  4. Comfy boots. I guess you don't NEED them, but I'd be lost without mine. Pick a colour that will go with anything, and then you can wear them if you're needing to walk a lot or just want a more casual look.

  5. A lolita bag. Doesn't matter how plain it is, but it should match the style and be an appropriate colour that features elsewhere in your coord. Nothing makes an outfit look more off than a mismatching bag.

What would your choices be?


  1. Great picks! I love the shirt, it's so cute and the petticoat ^_^

    1. Thanks! The petticoat is actually really flat and useless, but it's so much easier to take a photo of that than of my really pouffy one =P
