The first topic in the Lolita 52 Challenge is: 5 pieces that every Lolita wardrobe should have, regardless of style

This is a great one to start with and I think different people will have different choices for this. Here are mine:

1. A good petticoat.

For sweet Lolitas this would be cupcake shaped and for classic or gothic this would be a-line.  Either way, you need at least one good petticoat that has enough poof to make sure your skirts give the right Lolita silhouette.

2. A white Lolita blouse

This should be one that could be worn either under a JSK or with a skirt.  I picked white because I think that white will work with any style, even gothic, whereas a black blouse is another important staple of the Lolita wardrobe it doesn’t have as much versatility.

3. Socks and tights in a variety of colors

At minimum a pair of white kneehighs and black kneehighs are really useful, but since what you wear on your legs can help change a look or help coordinate a look perfectly I think having a variety to choose from is really important.  I tend to wear more classic or gothic, so I prefer tights or ankle socks to kneehighs.  If you have a variety it really helps coordinate with different prints and colors of dresses.

4. A pair of comfy Lolita shoes that fit with the dominant colors of your wardrobe

Some Lolita shoes are not comfy.  Be sure to have a pair that is comfortable that is the right color to wear with the majority of your wardrobe.

5. A selection of head accessories

They don’t have to be big or expensive, but you need to have stuff to wear on your head to pull the outfit together.  Having a variety that fit with the main colors in your wardrobe, along with a variety of socks and tights, allows you to transform your outfit by changing just a few pieces and will give your wardrobe more versatility.
