I personally am not a fan of the different colored show trend, even in OTT sweet. I actually like OTT sweet when it's done correctly, but the west seems to misunderstand it and wears shit like kandi with it

I love it when people manage to make OTT sweet AP prints look mature and sophisticated like this. Is there a general formula for achieving this sort of look? Anything essential? Pieces to avoid?

>> No.8437045


No wig (or natural color extension/hairpiece, looks like she might have an add on, but it matches her natural hair) and not having a million plastic shapes dangling off you helps. Light natural makeup, dressy but not full on lolita shoes.

As much as cgl hates it, this is very matchy matchy, but I also think that helps achieve a more normalized look. Pink and black is common color combo, and they aren't the craziest colors.

I think casual lolita is really simple, and it's probably my favorite way to wear most of my pieces outside of big special events. Mot of the lolita world is too caught up on ott though, so if you dress like the pic here, it's sadly seen as boring.

I've noticed that coording a pastel and a darker color (like she does with pink and black here) is a good first step towards maturing a sweet coord. Also the best ones usually have up-dos for hairstyles instead of long, extravagant wigs, which helps make the look more mature too. Subdued accessories, skip wrist cuffs, etc.

It depends on if you want to just get a few things or a ton of things, basically. If you can jump into a group order or you have enough money sitting around to justify a large order yourself, go through taobao.
