** 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.]]

* CrackIsCheaper: Lolita is widely known for its overall high quality, expensive fabrics and intricate construction, regardless of brand and/or style. New outfits easily cost $300USD minimum, possibly more depending on the particular brand and popularity. Add that the matching accessories (and there are a lot) and it's little wonder that the first piece advice given to beginners is to save as much as possible. Even used Lolita clothes (from any brand and style) don't sell for less than $100USD. It's possible to acquire a wardrobe on a budget, and in fact many within the fashion do just that, but it requires:

* {{Guro}} Lolita: The subset of Lolita that [[MoralGuardians concerned parents]] [[HateDumb hate]]; it is BloodierAndGorier than other Lolita styles, and also the [[DarkerAndEdgier darkest, most extreme]] style of them all. The style follows the basic Lolita silhouette, but focuses on a "broken doll" image and features a ''whole lot'' of {{Gorn}}, complete with distressed fabrics (white being a favorite color, as it contrasts well with red), torn-up clothes, bandages, messy hair, heavy makeup and fake blood. Slasher film-inspired elements such as fake wounds, slit wrists, bloody weapon props and corpse paint are very popular. The style takes cues from {{Emo}} at times, and might come across as being as [[{{Wangst}} wangsty]], but keep in mind that Guro Lolita does NOT promote self-harm in any way. A lot of Guro Lolis base their style off medical themes and [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies]]. [[NotSafeForWork Generally not an everyday style]] for Lolitas and usually reserved for certain occasions.
