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'm most comfortable in country lolita, but I love classic lolita. I'm the least comfortable in gothic lolita, because I always get the 'wannabe' glares from people. >.<

I play a lot of folk music, so a lot people think that lolita is part of the look, because it has that 'not of this time' appearance. XD All the comments I've gotten have been pretty cute, when I'm carrying around my viola and weaaring lolita.

I love Dandies to death, and wish I could dress like one, (yes, I know it's not lolita) and I'd love to try some guro loli.
