Now, however, I like classic lolita most, as it looks least costume-like. While some people do wear quite elaborate lolita outfits day-to-day, usually I find it looks vaguely silly and excessive in my eyes; consequently I prefer lolita in art or in photoshoots. On the other hand, I would love to incorporate elements of lolita into my own wardrobe.
