Lolita Blog Carnival: Romantic Coordinate Ideas

Valentine's day is nigh, and you want to wear something to go out with your special someone or maybe dress up beautifully for yourself. The following are some of my ideas for crafting a lovely romantic look, so let's jump right in.

Some general motifs to incorporate into a Valentine's day coordinate include: pearls, ribbons, hearts, bows and lace. Fortunately, lolita brands abound with these elements, and jewelry containing a sweet and girly touch is common during February which can match well mixed in with lolita brand pieces.

Examples of lolita main pieces with heart or chocolate elements
Bodyline l445
Angelic Pretty Royal Creamy Chocolate
Angelic Pretty Sugar Hearts
I've also put together a full sample coordinate using primarily budget friendly finds from Bodyline and Forever 21. I went for a pastel lilac coordinate brought through the Bodyline Cinderella Bunnies dress (Bodyline l481). Though not visible in the below picture easily, the neckline of the jsk has two strings of pearls hanging. The beret, socks and blouse are in white to help compliment the main piece without overwhelming with pastels, while the Secret Shop shoes and lilac wrist cuffs bring the color back into the outfit again to help with tying the coordinate together. Final touches are the Forever 21 heart necklace and rose bracelet along with the youthful girlish bouncy look provided by Gothic Lolita Wigs Ringlet Redux in milk tea.

  1. Your sample coordinate could compete with a coordinate made primarily from brand even though everything is offbrand.
