So much to choose from!
When your favorite lolita designers release a new print, it is always difficult to choose which clothing piece you want to buy. The most common designs for lolita printed items involve three common types: jumperskirts, skirts, and one-piece dresses. While your favorite design may differ from print to print, there is one type that finds a home in your wardrobe. Out of the three, I have one clear favorite.
In my opinion, jumperskirts always win! I adore lthe style of lolita jumperskirts for many reasons.
The options combined with a JSK with a long sleeve, a short sleeve shirt and the base of a cutsew or a blouse add a wide array of style options. Some of my other favorites add-ons to a jumperskirt include boleros or a corset. These items allow for more choices than just a one-piece dress alone!
3. Protect the dress
The fact that a jumperskirt requires layers underneath to represent the lolita aesthetic is a bonus! The shirt allows there to be an extra layer of fabric to protect the dress from normal wear and tear. Not only does this help to maintain the design, but protects the item's resale value, if so desired.
2. Greater coordinate combinations
Just like a jumperskirt, a skirt allows for multiple style options when paired with a shirt. A cutsew, blouse or bolero can be added to draw out additional colors represented in the print. Additionally, the choice of short or long sleeves is still an option with a skirt. While I do not experience as much flexibility when it comes to size accommodations, I am able to customize skirts quite inexpensively!
This one clothing article is one that makes a bold statement. A one-piece is also a fantastic clothing piece for the days that you feel less inspired to create a coordinate. The addition of socks or tights, shoes, bag and matching hair accessories transform into a completed ensemble in no time!
3. Weather versatility
A one-piece dress is a great option as a complete dress for warm weather and sun protection if the material is made of an airy fabric, such as chiffon. Additionally, a one-piece dress can also be a warm dress for winter, if constructed of a wool or velvet. The long sleeves can help tp keep you warm.
And there you have it! There are my reasons and placement for these key Lolita pieces. What about you? Do you prefer a Lolita jumperskirt, one-piece or skirt for your wardrobe? Let me know below!
