    Default Half Loli & Casual Loli

    er, pardon me for my noobiness.

    I was wondering if there is such thing called half/casual loli, i have heard of it sometimes, and i was thinking if there is any politically "correct" way of going this styles. Sometimes it is quite inappropriate to dress up in full-geared loli in certain events...so yea ^^"

    I would be grateful for any help ^^

    I dont think half loli equals to casual loli. Half loli is more like... incomplete dressing? lol But here is a nice link about lolita fashion & culture : http://lolita-handbook.livejournal.com/

    Taken from there :

    If you're unsure if your outfit could be classified as casual loli, just make sure you have a traditional loli skirt (one you could put a petticoat underneath) and at least 2 of the following items. If you're wearing a loli dress or jumper you just need one of the following. For a less traditional loli skirt (say like a pleated skirt), then I'd say go for about 3 of the following (thanks to invertedcross for bringing up this situation). Though if you have 4 or more of these you're probably a full-blown loli at that point.

    Casual Loli Checklist:
    ♥ Elegant blouse or adorable cutsew-esque shirt.
    ♥ Petticoat.
    ♥ Hair accessories - headdress, bow, mini-crown, etc.
    ♥ Loli hairstyle - sausage curls, Mana pigtails, hime cut, etc.
    ♥ Loli shoes (ex. Mary Janes).
    ♥ Stockings or frilly socks.
    ♥ Frilly parasol.
    ♥ Additional item - frilly coats, aprons, shrugs, cardigans, etc.

    Hope that helps =D

    thanks! X3 Oh, and i also want to ask if i wear everything like a full loli, except that i replace a t-shirt (no worries, it's kinda loli-able in a sense) in place of a loli blouse (but everything, parasols, MJs, socks are there) would it be considered as a casual loli?

    I think... It's ok to wear a loli skirt with a normal top?
    I did that before. ^^;

    casual lolita is more casual. personally I find it more to cutsew combination with puffy skirt ^^ something sweet and chic for everyday wear, but still look proper. I think if you carry it on properly, noone would flame you. But again, what's proper to one person might not be proper to another person.

    I don't think the second picture is casual loli. It's more like elegant loli, for example what you usually see on the Victorian Maiden website. Less frills, smaller details and sometimes has floral prints.

    The kind of loli that has loads of frills is usually amaloli (sweet loli) if it's in sweet colours.

    shadowfeline > Personally i find the 2nd pix can be considered both classical lolita or casual lolita. I find the cardigan add casual feel on the overal details =D The first link can be considered sweet lolita also. But i find it rather casual.

    Not sure what do you mean by elegant lolita though... I only heard about elegant gothic lolita / EGL, but i dun think that's what you meant.

    it's hard to say what exactly what but let's just say something more casual ^^ One of the line that considered casual lolita is BETH by Victorian Maiden. Link : http://www.victorianmaiden.com/beth/index.html
    But if you see some of their stuffs can be considered sweet lolita and casual lolita also. It's depends on how you coordinate it lah =D

    Another brands that considered casual loli would be ETC ( Emily Temple Cute ), Shirley Temple, and Jane Marple. I didnt put the link for these 3 because personally I find most of the stuffs are very casual hence if not coordinated properly will look like 'cute girlie clothes' instead of casual lolita.
    Again, everything is depends on how you coordinate the whole piece =D
