** Special mention goes to the {{Touhou}} [[CashCowFranchise franchise]] by ''ZUN'', which takes Lolita [[UpToEleven to extremes]]. The entire series features LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters dressed in some form of Lolita clothing, (with some characters progressively lolified in later releases) battling it out in eye-catching BulletHell duels.

* Sweet Lolita: also called "Ama Lolita" or "[=AmaLoli=]", characterized by brighter, more colorful aesthetics, focusing more on the cute than elegant. Fairy Tale themes are very common; sweets, pastries, toys, flowers, fruits and cute animals are commonly used themes as well. Coordinates tend to be [[CostumePorn colorful and highly intricate]], and bright colors such as pink, pastel yellow, white, sax blue, pale yellow, lavender and red have become the norm. If that wasn't enough for you there is Over-the-Top (OTT) Sweet Lolita which takes it to a whole new level, known for [[AnimeHair very fancy]], [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair very colorful hair,]] dresses with energetic pastel prints, coordinates consisting of nearly the entire pastel rainbow, and elements of Decora in accessorizing, creating an image of extreme childlikeness. Music/KyaryPamyuPamyu is well-known for a more flamboyant and costume-y version of Sweet Lolita.

** Elegant Gothic Aristocrat: Arguably the [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]], more {{Badass}} version of Boystyle and Lolita. The style focuses on awesomeness and elegance. Expect to see the various forms of {{Badass}} clothing (BadassCape, BadassLongcoat, BadassLongRobe, etc...) being worn by someone somewhere in the sub-scene. Also expect to see [[NiceHat cool headgear]] being worn. If headgear aren't worn, expect to see EightiesHair and other full-looking hairstyles. The style usually bears a resemblance to Edwardian, classic gangster, or Mafia fashion styles in its least impressive form, and royal fashion in its most extreme. Crosses over with VisualKei. As an androgynous style, it caters to both men and women, and Aristocrat outfits can be worn by both sexes. Music/{{Versailles}} is this. {{Gackt}} used to be and still has elements of this. Moi-Meme-Moitie is an example of a brand that regularly has EGA clothes.

** Averted with the more mature Aristocrat style (and Classic Lolita to an extent), where the main point is to look as {{Badass}} and classy as possible.

* {{Badass}} clothing: Has become the norm for the Ero, Gothic, Guro, Kote and Punk styles. The Elegant Gothic Aristocrat style is built on this.



* OminousOperaCape: Optional, but it adds a lot to the look of the darker, more {{Badass}} styles.

* WomanInBlack and WomanInWhite: Kuro Lolita and Shiro Lolita, being both the DarkerAndEdgier and LighterAndSofter variants of Classic Lolita. [[ElegantGothicLolita Gothic Lolita]] takes the former trope UpToEleven while {{Guro}} Lolita is a darker take of the latter. White and Black are of course very common colours in the fashion.

** Pirate Lolita: A subset of Sailor Lolita that is more heavily based on pirate themes. Usually incorporates elaborate, pirate-style outfits [[InTheStyleOf a la]] PiratesOfTheCaribbean, complete with [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatches]], [[TooManyBelts plenty of belts]], [[HellBentForLeather leather]], treasure chest-styled bags, ruffly blouses with jabots and [[OrnamentalWeapon sword/gun props]]. The look isn't complete without tons of jewelry or an elaborately feathered tricorn hat. Mostly [[TropeCodifier popularized]] and supplied by [[CaptainObvious Alice and the Pirates.]]
