here is a list of different Lolita styles and also styles that are often associated with Lolita.
Gothic Lolita- Morbid Lolita's! when you think of the term "Gothic" and you associate it with the style, thats what it is! They use darker colors such as black and red!
Amaloli or sweet Lolita- All about the cuteness!! Fluffy,frilly, and all around sweetness is all that can really be said! Stuffed animals help with this! Any cute pattern and pastels are what they wear!
Shirololi (did I spell that right?) Pretty much a sweet Lolita in all white. It is all about the color!
Kurololi- a Lolita who wears all black!
himelolo (I think thats right lol!) A princess Lolita! looks like a princess.
Country Lolita- anything from little house on the prairie! they use Gingham and straw hats!
English Lolita- Taking American elements and adding them into the Lolita fashion.
Wa-loli- uses traditional Japanese elements. So it kinda looks like a kimono
Qi- Uses Chinese elements
Otaku Lolita's- only in it for the cosplay purpose! based off of anime/manga characters
Punk Lolita- Just like that kid in your class that comes in with the ripped pants and all the plaid. They can be VERY colorful!
Cyberlolita- Pretty much a punk Lolita but uses mainly neon colors.
Kodona- Pretty much a little boy look. It can follow any of the above themes, but turned into what a little boy would wear. Usually cropped pants (below or above the knee usually)
Dandy- Like a grown up Kodona. More sophisticated boy, kinda like a man lolita. it can also be any of the above themes. Top hats and coats are a must!
EGL- Mana actually came up with this. It looks very much like a elegant lolita (lol thats what EGL stands for Elegant gothic lolita) it uses dark colors in a elegant way. a dark blue goes well with this!
EGA- Same as above, but it stands for Elegant Gothic Aristocrat. It is suppose to be more mature looking, meaning not to have the usual short skirt and sleeves but having longer, more adult looking things.
*EGL and EGA is suppose to be androgynous.
If I messed up something (which wouldn't surprise me!!) Please tell me!
