I hate comm meetups because it's nothing but ugly women trying to one up everyone else with how expensive their clothing is, yet they never do anything to actually better themselves or their manners. I've never been to one meetup that didn't have people constantly trying to shit on other people because of how jealous they are. It's disgusting and not lady like.

I don't believe ugly people should dress in lolita, period; and I don't mean conventionally ugly, but people who don't actually embrace the fashion and aren't willing to commit to it. People without manners. If you're going to cuss while wearing lolita and be disgusting/not make any actual effort, you need to stop wearing it.

Also, if you're a coward that can't wear lolita outside on a daily basis and only wears it to meetups, just give up.

My last unpopular opinion (at least one that triggers a lot of people) is that if you have shitty dyed hair, you need to wear a wig. ALWAYS. Colored hair looks horrible, even with pastel or goth.

So this one is new to me. Why is middle parted hair unacceptable in Lolita?

Genuinely curiously. I've been thinking about switch to a more feminine side part but even my hair dresser says I've been parting my hair in the middle so long now it just falls that way even when wet...

>> No.9591421

I dont understand the middle parted hair one. Isn't that just how hair naturally falls? I mean it is one thing to not style your hair but you can have it styled and still parted down the middle. Is just an aesthetic thing for you?

My knees are the narrowest part of my leg aside from my ankles so skirts that hit exactly at the knees are the most flattering on me. A few cm above is okay, but a few cm under is horribly unflattering and makes me look so stumpy.

Lucky. Nayrt but a lot of girls in my comm are kinda trashy. I've been to more than a dozen meets and I s2g every single time there's been someone who hiked up her skirt above her waist, in public, to rearrange her blouse/bloomers/petti. I understand the need but ffs can you not do it in the middle of the street while people are staring at us? Who raised you? It's not the same girl every time, lots of girls in my comm apparently think this is acceptable behavior. And yet they think they're all so classy, too.

>ok but where is your unpopular opinion
Many lolitas aren't even half as classy as they think they are, and I've met quite a few who are way more snooty than they have any right to be. You can repost Marie from Aristocats memes and say "literally me" all you want but as long as you're screaming about booze and tits and pulling up your skirt to flash your bloomers to everyone at the park, you're not fooling anyone. One girl had the audacity to call a bunch of random onlookers "trailer park people" when she's one of the trashiest people in the comm. Putting on a poofy dress doesn't mean you're a real princess or have any right to look down on others.

Sack and empire waist dresses will forever be my favourite cuts. People who complain about them are either too fat, or don't go through the effort of sorting out their chests

Wigs often look ugly and ita, especially those that have unnatural colours, just style your hair, it's not that difficult. Blonde, Brown and Black are the only good colours most of the time

If you're too fat to fit in brand, you shouldn't be a lolita, loose some weight before you even consider it. I understand having too big of a chest, but just bind or wear a sport bra

Tattoos are awful in lolita, and should be covered up, tattoos aren't cute and make you look trashy

you sound like you're contradicting yourself... you say that putting on a frilly dress doesn't make you an automatic princess or give you the right to look down on others, yet as a lolita you're expecting other lolitas to act classy and ladylike and you're looking down on those who don't?

I'm not expecting anyone to act ladylike, I'm expecting basic adult human behavior. Hiking up your skirt so far people can see the top of your underwear isn't something anyone above the age of 3 should be doing in public. I don't think expecting people to act their age is that unreasonable. For some reason girls seem to think that because we're wearing lolita that means basic etiquette doesn't apply anymore. They'll yell "it's just clothes!", but would they do this sort of thing in the middle of a cafe while wearing a regular sundress? I sure hope not.

>> No.9591505

there's a difference between acting like a normal human being with manners and trailer trash in a dress. you don't have to act like a princess to wear lolita, but you need to stop being disgusting if you claim to be so much better than other people.

Lolita is about dressing your best, so you should act your best as well.

Yes, thank you. I don't know why this is so hard to understand.

Forgot to mention that when I say someone's behavior is not classy I'm referring specifically to the girls who are constantly claiming that they are, comparing themselves to classy fictional or historical characters and acting like they're above "normies" because of the way they dress and act.
Honestly the more of a show people make of being an IRL high maintenance Disney princess, the more likely they are to be super loud and trashy in person. Why is this? It's so weird.

I hate solid tights unless it's black ones, and even then I think they look better with some opacity. I also hate socks over tights.

Although I only have brand, I think a lot of lolita looks samey because of the fact there are a limited amount of dresses and styles. Even when people break the boundaries of what is normal in lolita, it still has to follow a strict aesthetic so it doesn't deviate much from the norm. People rag on others for not being creative enough when really there's only so much you can do.

Also I've grown sick of cgl. Not the content, just some of the saltier posters. You're not perfect so quit criticising stuff that is a non-issue/people didn't want crit about (and no, I didn't get posted, it's just an observation)/

The only binder that I use is a gc2b half binder in nude colour (used to use one in white, nude looks better for me), but if it can be seen under a blouse, I will wear a long sleeved vest, or a white t shirt.

The most recent wardrobe thread had people pissing themselves over actually posting dresses instead of stock photos too.

people with warm undertones typically look better with warmer, soft pastels, or earthy tones (such as sweet-classic or classic lolita), whereas people with cool tones look better in bright pastels or dark colors (such as pastel sweet and gothic)

I personally prefer wearing a wig with lolita because my hair frizzes really easily. Bangs don't work very well because the shorter it is, the more it curls, and I also don't feel like freaking out about the state of my hair for pictures every time it rains, or it's windy, or even slightly humid.

The color thing isn't even the root of the problem imo.

It's a fashion made for and by asian girls, inspired by old european fashions. Asians tailored the style to suit them better, white girls then re-tailored it to suit them when it became popular in the west (e.g. the kind of OTT, almost costume-y classic style with feathers and elaborate hats rather than bonnets that wasn't popular in old school lolita).

Black girls had nothing to do with the creation of the style or its inspirations, and instead of tailoring it to suit them and make it their own style, they just whine about how people don't think the asian/white aesthetics don't suit them. Of course they don't. You could make it suit you if you wanted to (and some girls do!) but the ones in this thread bitching about how this or that style or colour MUST suit them or you're racist!! are never going to look good.

Chinese girls had nothing to do with the creation of the fashion or Korean girls, but no one is out here insulting Taobao brands or Korean brands for being fake or not tailoring the style to suit them. Asians aren't all the same, you know.

Uh, what? If anything it is the exact opposite, the fashion became even more divorced from its historical roots and became more over the top, because most of the western community were young and weeby. OTT Sweet boomed in the western community specifically, where is the historical influence there?

>> No.9592236

That's cause black girls get hated on the most.

>> No.9592240

Sticking with a colour palette that objectively suits them better is a good start. Given that black hair is so distinctive and that there are many creative and cute ways to style it that can't be done with any other hair texture, it's a huge window of opportunity for black lolitas to show some individual style. Adding cultural flair is tricky, but it's great when done well. Hijabs look good with lolita when balanced properly, so I see no reason why something like a traditional headscarf wouldn't work either, as long as you took the effort to make sure the colour, fabric, and silhouette were balanced.

>> No.9592241

Things like poofier petticoats, moving away from baby-style bonnets, decrease in peeking bloomers, more elaborate hairstyles, all drew more on the roccoco and victorian roots of the fashion.

Historical inspiration doesn't cancel out sweet aesthetics.

I doubt that was historical rooted

Whether it was consciously done or not, the point is that western lolitias changed the style in a way that drew more heavily on historical European inspiration because it suited them better than the style that was created by Japanese girls.

Yeah and OTT sweet doesn't really draw on Rococo/Victorian trends either. IW's Pompadour JSK is obviously inspired by eighteenth century dresses because of the faux-stomacher piece and open front skirt with exposed petticoats. The dress has elements that very clearly reference actual historical clothing. OTT sweet on the other hand draws very little inspiration outside the vague idea of a poofy skirt and big hair.

>I believe most lolitas on cgl are itas

When I was new to the board I always took anyone on cgl's advice seriously, thought they're all probably great lolitas and super put together because cgl is muh superior secret lolita club - and then i slowly realised a lot of gulls have subpar taste and are probably chubby or ugly.

Sometimes i like to people watch in public and when i see someone wearing some awful outfit that might pass as casual lolita or otome i think they probably browse cgl and spout on about how they "wear lolita daily and have been for several years, its not that hard to put together a cute semi-normie outfit".

>> No.9592425

I think one of the biggest differences with western lolitas were the shoes. Chunky platforms were a staple of Japanese lolita from the original gothic days. Not every Japanese lolita wore/wears them and the trend is declining, but they were extremely popular.

They still showed up a lot in western lolita, especially in OTT sweet, but many western lolitas opted for more classic styles like this >>9592413. Probably a combination of the need to import the classic chunky shoes, limited sizes in Japanese brands, and the difference in aesthetic.

You are comparing apples and oranges. First of all, Smileysquid is a western lolita, and she's not even Japanese as far as I know. You're comparing girls wearing classic to random photos like old school advertisements or snaps of Asian lolitas from Daily_Lolita.

I agree with this but only when the garment is obviously too small when worn by the seller, then I worry about undisclosed popped/distorted seams and stretched shirring (if there is any).
