52 Weeks of Lolita - 5 Pieces Every Lolita Wardrobe Should Have

Hey everyone,

This is Keiko here with the first post of the 52 weeks of lolita challenge by F Yeah Lolita. Today's post will determine what, in my opinion, are five things no lolita should go without, regardless of their style. Without further ado, here is my list:

1. Petticoat

Petticoats are key to any lolita-related activity. They are the backbone of your silhouette  and will ensure you look the part. That's why every lolita should have at least one petticoat in the shape that best suits their wardrobe (cupcake, A-line, etc.).

2. White blouse

Boguta blouse with 2 detachable sleeves
A white blouse is a good staple piece for any wardrobe --bonus points if it has detachable sleeves! This item is versatile and fits with a range of styles, which makes it a good first purchase. I personally recommend one of Boguta's chiffon blouses. It comes with two sets of sleeves that have elastic tops, making it long-sleeved or princess-sleeved for a variety of looks.

3. Pearl bracelets

My plastic pearl bracelets 
Whether real or fake, pearls are as versatile as white blouses. They add a touch of elegance that can elevate a coord a bit while still being somewhat neutral. I personally got my bracelets at Claire's and have used them for Sweet, Classic, and Gothic looks no problem.

4. One pair of comfortable lolita shoes

My shoe collection is quite comfy -even the heels!
This item is useful for meetups where you foresee walking or standing for long periods of time. Brand, indie, or offbrand, comfortable shoes might take you out of a tight spot and make you more prone to wearing them --and lolita, more often

5. Bloomers

By bloomers I don't necessarily mean the real thing here either. Just a pair of shorts might work if you're in a pinch. Just make sure that you have something to wear underneath your petticoat in case the wind blows or you are going up the stairs. Nobody wants to flash anyone else by accident!

These are the five items I find crucial for anyone starting a lolita wardrobe of any style. But what about you? Do you think having camisoles to wear underneath blouses or neutral tights that go with everything should make the list? Let me know what you consider essential in the comments below~ <3
