Let’s just keep it real. It’s okay to wear black on Christmas. There’s no rule anywhere that says your coordinate has to match any colour combination of Santa Claus. The Black Coordinate is the mother of all winter coords in many ways. It can be everything and nearly every kei (put on enough bows and it will be sweet …okay maybe not but you can soften it). Today, Christmas is spent in many ways. There’s the morning gifts by the tree for some, there’s a big dinner with relatives you only see once or twice a year and for others it’s a quiet time in a coffee shop, by a warm flame at home with a loved one or maybe even a movie with friends followed by Chinese food. But for Lolitas…many of us take it to a whole other level. Christmas time is the another day to dress it up and we’re going for an EGL fest with black coordinate suggestions.
There’s this cool coordinate from an ETSY designer. It’s black, it has ace and chiffon and all this and it’s all that and more. For a cool 74.99+ shipping you can wear this with pride. We love it. But look at other shoppes as well. There’s a lot from which to pick.
We’re also hoping that you’ll feel inspired by the black Tea Party tee from us, RainbowsNGold. Imagine pairing this over a pink long sleeved shirt (or black) which allows the iconic symbols of things like our beloved macarons and tea pots to pop and stand out. You can add dandy shorts or a skirt with this and a few fashionable chains.
Then of course there’s the simple black dress from Elegy. Elegy is the queen of making a black dress look amazing. Be it the babydoll frame Batty OP or the latest from her treasure of dark gems, you’re going to find something that is elegant and perfect for the holiday.
And you know, if you don’t celebrate Christmas that’s fine. Just put on your favourite black coord and go about your day. Come join us online and let us know how you spend your time this winter. Send us selfies of you in our beautiful black coordinate.
#HappyRebellion (for real)!
