1. 5 pieces that every Lolita wardrobe should have, regardless of style.
At least ONE white blouse that goes with everything. This is something that you should be able to pair up with either a skirt or a JSK easily. Something that's light-weight and not see-through. Something that can be worn on it own or with a cardigan, as well. I would also say to invest in a good black blouse as well, but not everyone REALLY needs that if their preferred style doesn't call for black.
A simple JSK in your favorite color that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. This should be something your basic white blouse would work well with. I recommend against prints for this one, stick with something solid.
Unless you have some sort of hardcore grudge against Mary-Jane styled shoes, these are a great option that can work well with any style. You can buy them in a variety of colors and styles - from a basic black flat to a platformed pink with skulls. The choice is yours, but these are a godsend for a new Lolita and always a classic.
A flowered headband or hair clip can easily dress up even a simple hairstyle. Stick a flower into a messy bun for a romantic updo or slide a flowered headband onto straight hair for a polished and cute look. You can get these in a variety of colorways, like black roses or yellow daisies. Headbands don't really work for everyone so if this is the case for you, flowers on hair clips work just a well!
Every Lolita needs a good handbag. To find one that works for any occasion, choose a solid color that matches a majority of your wardrobe and has elements of your favorite style. A sweet lolita with a penchant for pastels might love this bag from Juicy Couture because it would work with a variety of coordinates - prints or non.
