Lolita Chic
Just coined the expression in another thread. What do you think?

I'm thinking we'll see it coming pretty soon. Here's why:

1. Think of the recent young doll models (Starting with Natalia, leading to Gemma, Lily, etc)
2. Then consider the fact that loli/goth fashion has been HUGE in Japan for some years
3. Think about Perry Ellis' pink ribbons and white lace dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs' kindergarten collection, Alexander McQueen's short girly Edwardian dresses(Edwardian is, btw, also going to be a huge trend, I think) and Viktor & Rolf's ribbons. There are probably more as well.
4. Put that together with the fact that we haven't seen this trend yet, and therefore it is bound to come eventually.
5. Also, I personally can really feel it. Think white linen bodices, cute ribbons, fluttery dresses, golden hearts, ankle socks. Very pretty.


Marc by Marc Jacobs


Alexander MqQueen


Perry Ellis


Viktor & Rolf

I seriously believe in this trend.

I hope you're right. It's all so girly and cute and totally fits in with the sort of stuff I like to wear. I love that white Perry Ellis dress with pink ribbon. So cute!

Loads of trendy older-teens dress like that in Newcastle...mary-janes, floaty flimsy sherbet pink dress and innocent smile.
