Are you a fan of old-school lolita? Have a fond memory of when this style was just, well, lolita fashion? This recent series by Metamorphose is exactly what your heart wished for!
When I was first exposed to lolita fashion, there wasn't any "old school" style. Lolita fashion was, well, lolita! I would Kamikaze Girls frequently and devour "current" Gothic and Lolita Bibles. Even as the fashion evolved and new trends occurred, the charm of the original style never left my mind.
Even now, I love wearing lolita in an old-school way, and I'm sure I'm not the only one! Long bloomers, rocking horse shoes, rectangle headdress, and more make this lolita sub-style iconic.
A comparison of this new old-school dress couldn't happen without Kamikaze Girl references!
This recent release from Metamorphose Temps de Fille ticks all the old-school lolita boxes!
A gingham print reminds me of summertime! This pattern is perfect for Sweet Lolita and Country Lolita styles. Solid cotton pieces compliment either look. A matching solid purse and headbow give the dress a sweet look, while a straw hat and straw-weave bag help showcase your natural side.
Tartan is a very versatile fabric. Used in Sweet Lolita, Classic Lolita, and sub-styles, this historically Scottish fabric a wonderful staple in your old-school closet. Pair your dress with a few white or black cotton pieces and accessories, and your coordinate is complete! A matching headpiece works, too!
☑ Solid w/ White Lace
This version of the release is the most flexible. Like the others, it is stunning! The piece can easily be worn in an old-school style or follow a more modern coordinate. The headdress headband with the release is perfect for the old-school vibe. Transform the piece into an over-the-top hime coordinate with a large bonnet, a hime blouse, and tights! The limit of this dress is only your imagination.
What do you think of the release? Which fabric is your favorite? How about your favorite colorway? I look forward to posting a review once my piece arrives in May or June!
