This week's Lolita Blog Carnival topic is "Predict 5 trends in lolita for 2016"
1. OTT will get even more OTT
OTT was always a sweet lolita thing, until recently when OTT Goth and OTT Classic started becoming popular for major events and conventions. I think this is only going to get bigger! And even more niche styles will pick up on it., and even whole OTT outfits on one single motif nevermind one specific style. Wings, Staffs, Huge hats, decorated glasses with themed chains, many many layered skirts that can be seen from out the bottom of the each other. Skirts worn over dresses, worn over underskirts and so on.
2. Simple OldSchool will also come back.
As an equal and opposite to the utter madness of extreme OTT, I think very simple, solid colored, barely accessorized old school outfits will also be a trend.
All pink and white outfits, with no print and black platforms, with a white rectangle headdress.
These two styles might be seen as "rivalling" each other, the way Goth Vs Sweet is sometimes joked about as a rivalry.
3. Mainstream Shoes
The days of specially made tea parties with bows front and back are fading out. These will still be popular, but probably seen as an old-school thing.
Mainstream fashion heels, flats, loafers and brouges will replace the specifically Lolita Shoe.
This is one may seem like purely wishful thinking on my part, but, with the recent Gurokawa and menhera fashions, and even Triple Fortune bringing out an explicitly Guro Lolita print last year.
I really think Guro might be in for a little bit of a boost!
5. Non-Lolita Brands worn with Lolita outfits.
More non-lolita Japanese fashion brands will become popular among lolitas, and items from these brands will appear more and more in lolita fashion outfits.
What do you think? Whats the big trend for 2016?!
