Lolita isn’t always the most comfortable fashion. There are times, however, when you want to be comfortable and look cute in your frills – what to do then?
I realise that the title of the Lolita Blog Carnival challenge says coords, plural, but I have only one outfit so far that I consider both comfy and cosy (a lot of outfits may be comfortable, but feel a bit too fancy to sit at home with a cup of tea binging on YouTube videos). Also, despite wanting to do so, I don’t usually wear Lolita at home as I still live with my parents, both of whom smoke. It’s a challenge already to stop the smell from getting all over my stuff (and myself), I don’t want to expose anything more than necessary.

What makes this coord very comfortable is full shirring on both the blouse and the JSK. It allows me plenty of freedom of movement and whether I feel like eating my own weight in food or not, there’s plenty of room for that. The bolero is roomy and warm, and as it ends just at my chest it doesn’t restrict movement either. Simple colour palette and lack of prints (just one bit of embroidery) make this very low key, but the colours (and the embroidery) are still very cute and would brighten up any day. As the key is to be comfy and cosy, I’d swap brand socks for these: they’re from Primark Love to Lounge line and while they can dig a little bit too much where the elastic is, they’re still incredibly comfortable, warm and, what’s more important, I don’t need to worry about anything happening to them. For shoes I’d probably just stick with my slippers – it’s a cosy and comfy coord, I’m not going out and there’s no need to flaunt my cheesy slippers.
Do you sometimes wear Lolita just at home? Do you go for cosy coords or whatever you feel like, OTT included? What are your tips for keeping Lolita comfortable?
