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!

Punk Loli or Ero Loli. I'm rather casual, I love leather, chains and odd patterns. And Ero Loli would just suit my personality. But I'm not all that strict on style. I tend to take things from Lolita dress and match them with more casual wear.

I really can't pull off Sweet Loli. I don't like too much frills, I also think it's really doesn't suit me at all bodywise and in personality. (I'd get the wolf in sheepscloth effect) I also think my tattoos wouldn't fit the Sweet style so I'd have to cover them up all the time (some Sweet lolis have beautiful tattoos but if they don't match your dressing style it's just ugly)
