As everybody knows, there are lots of different sub-styles (or sub-genres, as I like to call them) of Lolita - Punk, Gothic, Sweet, White, Black, Classic, Princess, Country, Guro (I'm sure I'm missing some)...and we mustn't forget Aristocrat, Dandy and Kodona!

So, my question is, which of these sub-genres are you most comfortable in? Which make you cringe at the thought of wearing them, and why?

For me, I'm most comfortable in Punk Lolita - mostly because it's on the casual side, and I can fly under the radar (as it were) if I want to while still being recognizable as a Lolita to those who know the fashion. After that, I'm most comfortable in Classic Lolita, because I feel it captures the "Lolita spirit" while still being a little toned down.

Most uncomfortable? Certainly Sweet Lolita! I'm awestruck by Lolis who have the confidence and poise to wear the beautiful and adorable stylings of Sweet Lolita out in the open, and I really hope to be like them someday. But, for now, I can hardly imagine wearing a headdress outside, never mind all those fabulous ruffles!

I have no problem wearing Sweet Loli in darker colours... er, meaning it's not really Gothic, or Punk Loli. Like wearing one of the classical Baby dresses in black (the one with pockets, ya' know?), or their pinkXblack tartan. I also wear a lot of Meta red plaid items. And then tons of JSKs with prints on them... but with a dark base colour. You know cute, but not sugary. I'm afraid of pastely Sweet Loli on me. T_T

I see Gothic to be more Motie style with crosses and well, more of an elegant look (so in my eyes I'm not GothLoli). And Punk Loli is something I can totally feel comfortable in but it's very hard to pull off. Either you end up looking too Western Goth, or just plain "casual" Lolita as people call it. Putting on a plaid skirt doesn't make it Punk Loli, it's so much more than that. It's really rather intricate.

And I freaking love Pirate Loli. But def don't feel comforatble in it all the time 'cause that's another hard one to pull off. D:
