Frilly Fashion 101: Creating your First Lolita Shopping List

Want to create a lolita outfit (also called a coordinate or coord) but don’t know where to start?

Well, before you start buying you should read my article about what lolita fashion is and look up the substyles.

Got an idea of what you’re interested in yet? All right, let’s plan for our shopping trip!

You need(for a basic coordinate):

  • JSK or Skirt
  • Blouse
  • Petticoat to accommodate the shape of the JSK or Skirt
  • Socks and/or tights
  • Footwear/shoes
  • Hair accessory
  • Bracelets or Wristcuffs
  • Rings
  • Necklace

Granted, not every last thing is essential and some of them are nuanced, but it’s important to know what to order, even if you opt for several variations as you grow more skillful at coordinating.

Do you already wear lolita? If not, what got you interested in trying the fashion?
