Lolita Lesson #1: what is lolita?

Lolita is a fashion style and subculture that started in Japan that started late 70s. The style is inspired by Victorian children and doll clothing. The style is classy, stylish and cute. Lolita is not meant to be sexy and has nothing to do with Vladimir Nabokov's book 'Lolita'. The basic Lolita shape is covered and classic on the top and with a puffy knee length skirt. Lolita fashion has changed a lot since its start and developed into a world wide subculture!

Skirts got bigger and more cupcake shaped, square headdresses changed into headbows. Prints got more and more detailed. Simple knee-socks changed into detailed print stockings. I will make a series of guides about Lolita fashion so check back here!

There is much to learn about the basics of Lolita I thought I would leave you with some great videos about Lolita to watch!
