Styles of Lolita: Erotic Lolita


Erotic Lolita is the least modest of the Lolita fashion.  It usually follows the basic anatomy of a Lolita outfit, though it doesn't always have to.  This style includes fetish elements, collars and leather as well as other items not found in normal Lolita dress.  As a whole, the fashion is Gothic with erotic elements and a mature style.

✔ Headwear is usually nothing more than an alice bow, feathers or dark flowers.

✖ Do not wear a wig. It's casual and a wig is usually dressy. If you want to, get a simple wig that is straight or with waves, but not over the top curls and pigtails. As with all other Lolita, never wear your hair back in a ponytail!

✔ One-pieces are most common, though some sort of top other than a blouse can be used as well.  These can be modest or show cleavage and are made out of fetish materials such as leather, PVC, vinyl, lace and chiffon.  Corsets and bustiers are also common.

✖ There is no set on what you can and can't wear for this style.  It's best to get quality items though so you do not end up looking costumey.

✔ The skirt is almost always above the knee or a cage skirt.  Some skirts for Erotic Lolita can get rather short and almost be short enough to be considered a mini skirt.  The materials can be any of the same mentioned for one-pieces.

✖ No mini skirts should be used in this style of dress, though below the knee skirts should be avoided as well.

✔ Undergarments, such as a pannier can be worn, though they do not have to be.

✖ There is no set rule for undergarments with this style.

✔ Socks should be knee socks, OTK socks or stockings.  Fishnet and lace are very common for this style of Lolita.

✖ Avoid opaque socks or ankle socks.  Unlike other styles of Lolita, showing the legs through sheer fabric is acceptable and almost always practiced.

✔ Erotic Lolita shoes are usually boots, platform shoes or high heels of any height.

✖ There is no set rule for shoes in Erotic Lolita.

Other tips for your Erotic Lolita outfit include:

✚ Make-up can be done in any fashion desired for this style, though ti shouldn't be bright.
✚ Accessories for this style are chokers, collars, broken cuffs and lace gloves.
✚ If you use a bag or purse, keep it simple.
