I'm trying to explain to a friend how to coordinate properly but she doesn't seem to get it, she knows some normie fashion theory but it isn't really helping her in her coords. Does anyone have any blanket advice or maybe even infographics to help fledgling lolitas?
Pic slightly related, coord theory.
Super basic fool-proof coording (at least to me).
Match headwear and shoes to the main colour of your dress/skirt. Blouse and legwear should be the same complimentary colour. Bag doesn't matter so much as long as it matches. So if your dress is mainly brown, your headwear and shoes should also be brown with perhaps ivory legwear and blouse.
That's two-colour coording. If you go three colours, you use the thrid as an accent. So if you have a pink dress with a lavender print, your headwear should still be pink and should your shoes but perhaps headwear is a pink beret with a lavender bow as an accent. Blouse and legwear could be a neutral white, but with a lavender pattern on the legwear and maybe a lavender brooch on the blouse.
That's my "you can't fuck it up" method of coording. It may be a bit basic but it works.
