Wa and Qi Lolita Styles

19 Mar

These days my senses are ravished by dreams of the East; moss gardens, glowing lanterns and cherry blossom petals carried by the soft spring breeze, exciting Ukiyo-e prints, strange and thrilling music of Toru Takemitsu, old haiku poems… To go along with the theme, of course these gorgeous Lolita dresses caught my attention because they combine the classical Lolita clothes elements; silhouette, cuteness and modest appeal, with the elements of traditional clothes. Wa Lolita is a style of Lolita that combines the classic Lolita style with elements of traditional Japanese clothing (kimono), and Qi Lolita is a very similar style which takes inspiration from the traditional Chinese clothing (qipeo). I love the diversity that Lolita style is capable of and these eye-candy dresses bellow are just a joy to look at, I love the colour palette, lots of red and purple, the intricate patterns, and I love that the head-wear and the accessorize are also inspired by the traditional styles, it just looks stunning all together.

    Although I can appreciate the fabric, stitch-work and colour, which is indeed beautiful, I have always found the trend to have women appear ‘childlike’ rather odd.

      I can understand your point of view, but as someone who is transitioning from teenage years to adulthood, I feel a certain level of security in childlike fashion, childlike fashion for women is cute and modest and often styles for women tend to be a bit sexy which I am not comfortable with.

      I know, me too! I love all things japanese! I love the vibrant colours of all eastern cultures. Yes, nice idea. My favourite is the first pic and the one with the red background where the woman is holding a red lantern. What about you?

        It’s hard to choose, but I’m going to go with the ones that I think would look good on me. Like the 8th one, is a nice cut, not a fan of red, but that’s okay, I’d wear it. And the last 3rd one, b/w, those look like flattering cuts too. xo

        The first one is great, too. Like I said, hard to choose!
