I'd add a pair of boots or white shoes.

I'd cut out a couple of those long sleeved blouses, add some short sleeved ones, and include some outerwear options.

thanks! is this an improvement?

>>10369680
NTA but I'm curious, why white shoes? Anon only has black main pieces and outerwear, and the white legwear is all that is needed to balance out a white blouse. White shoes would pull too much visual weight to the very bottom and look really, really off with a coord that is so heavily black on top.

>>10369674
>>10369806
I'd say just black shoes are fine. Only thing I want to add is the two bigger Alice bows are too sweet if you're going for classic or gothic. I would switch them for more mature looking headwear like a rosette or thin rectangle headdress.
>>
>>10369904
Sounds like a sweet focused suggestion. White shoes have no place in this wardrobe, but in sweet “add shoes of your accent color” is decent generic advice
>>
This thread always inspires me to downsize. I have a leg in each of the three sub-styles and aspire to have three compatible capsules. It's hard to let go of my pieces but seeing other people's capsules help.

So are capsule wardrobes meant to mostly be an aesthetic reference or do some of you actually (aspire to) have a neat and minimalistic capsule wardrobe?
They always look so nice and work as inspiration but it seems kind of restrictive to use in practice. Maybe it's because my style/colours are all over the place.

I use them. My color and theme tastes are very specific so it’s not hard. I also am on a budget, like brand and don’t have a lot of storage space so it works for me. I have one large sweet/classic pink/ivory capsule and one smaller black/red sweet/classic wardrobe. I’ve never felt restricted because I don’t particularly want things outside of those colors.

for me i'm kind of picky about main pieces i like anyway, so it's not as hard. i'm also still kinda new so it's good practice as well as providing a guideline for what to shop for so i'm not buying random shit that doesn't work with the rest of my wardrobe.

Any oldschool capsule wardrobes?
>>
>>10377218
I'd say it's a bit of both. If you have very specific tastes (especially in terms of colour) it'd be pleasant and easy to have a capsule. But if you want a larger wardrobe or are into multiple styles and/or colours it's not really feasible. I always find a good capsule inspiring, but don't wver really want to have a wardrobe smaller than say 20 main pieces.

My beginner's wardrobe was a capsule, though I didn't go the preplanned collage route. Simply bought with the aesthetic of "pink bows and ribbons" and making sure items matched each other. Was a poorfag too, so it made more sense to buy more than just a couple of items each time, to save on shipping fees.

Capsule saw me through a years' worth of meetups. It's not like there weren't mistakes, I ended up with only 2 pairs of shoes, one pair was too small for some reason, but really I only needed those two pairs anyway. All in all, pretty decent way to start and be able to play with clothes rather than trying to copy one fullset outfit at a time.

Now I've got more than 50 main pieces and unlikely to downsize.
>>
>>10378073

Not really? The first one is sweet and the second is classic. Berries are just a common theme in lolita, like chocolate

>>
>>10379886
>>10379884
Actually I am going to be helpful today. The first sweet one is a lot of BBtSSB and the second classic one is a lot of Meta and IW. I have similar taste and own like half the dresses in the collage and those brands are good places to start.

Meta in particular is a hidden gem. I live in Pintuck Pinafore (the pink pintuck JSK in the classic collage)
>>
>>10379887
I do already own a lot of this style myself, but I didn't know how to explain it succinctly when I introduce myself. Now I can say I'm mostly into spring collections, and that sums it up very nicely. I bought almost all my pieces secondhand and live in a tropical climate where I can wear them year-round, so I wasn't aware of the seasonal association.

Yeah, new AP just doesn’t work, even with solids and the right accessories. Baby solids can work well with more elegant Atelier Pierrot styled goth however

My first attempt at a capsule! Pink x Red x White with a focus on berries.
This is both pieces from my wardrobe and wishlist items mixed together. I'd love some feedback!
Trying to match pinks based off of stock photos is crazy. Either filtered to hell and back or not color adjusted at all and super yellow. Pink is truly the most illusive color...
>>
>>10380319
Some of the socks and JSKs look fairly same-y. With a small wardrobe, it’s better to get some variety amongst your limited pieces.

Maybe work in more skirts or an OP if that’s your thing, or look for prints that are a bit different. For example, something like Sweetie Gingham in red will have the same colors and older BtSSB print vibe while being distinctly different.

Regarding socks, I would personally add more cuts of socks/tights or simply buy less socks since half of them look the same. That being said, I only wear lolita once or twice a week so that’s more personal

Sorry it took so long. I got lazy trying to make the collage more presentable.

I did this first one with a navy/burgundy theme and then swapped the burgundy for red in summer. I went for a JM aesthetic without the JM.
Most of these items are Leur Getter with a few ETC pieces and offbrand thrown in. You can mimic the aesthetic by finding berets, cardigans, legwear, and jewelry on sites like Aliexpress or high street stores

I'm working on a lighter color one now and will share soon!

Np!

Here's the other one. It's not as planned out, for example you might want to swap OP's out for JSK or skirt cuts for more versatility with the tops. I also skimped on legwear, but ruffle socks, textured or sheer floral or polka dot tights would be cute too. Sax or yellows would also work with this wardrobe!

If you would like a link to anything, lmk. I don't have links to the shoe choices from the first collage though. I saved those shoes a while ago so they're long sold out.

Some of y’all gulls are really good at this! When I’ve tried it never turned out as well or cohesive. You seem to include just enough variation in both texture & theme that I could actually envision many different looks with very different vibes from a relatively small number of pieces. I’ve come to the point where I realized I need to considerably pair down my wardrobe and want to essentially create a capsule and go from a daily lolita to someone who just wears it for meet ups. Any advice? I’ve attempted it in the past but ended up with a blah, too-samey wardrobe and then had to buy more pieces again
>>
Requesting a mature/somewhat toned down sweet capsule in navy, ideally with pastel accents rather than red
>>
>>10384740
Hi! I made a lot of these collages and I have a couple of capsule wardrobes. It can be a little daunting at first, capsules can be really rewarding. If you are struggling with same-y outfits, maybe try doing the loose framework of a wardrobe (the themes, substyle, color palette, etc) and then make a couple of *unique* coordinates with those parameters, then try mixing and matching the pieces you have and work from there. if you are pairing down a large wardrobe, this can be easy because you can pull out all of the items needed for the coordinates and play with them yourself.

As far as general advice goes, I would say make sure not to pick pieces that look too samey or serve the same function. Over the course of these threads, I see quite a few that have, for example, 4 red x black tartan jsks. As cute as they may look in the photo, chances are you will only every wear your one or two of those and the other two or three jsks would be better replaced with a solid black or a solid red jsk for variety. It can be a little overwhelming at first, but regularly checking the variety and usefulness of your items will go far.

I first got into capsules in normie style through his website: https://anuschkarees.com/blog/2012/12/20/building-a-capsule-wardrobe-101

The advice there still holds up well for lolita and can be a helpful framework.

I also think FYeahLolita’s formula works very well as a starting place: http://www.fyeahlolita.com/2012/05/building-complete-lolita-wardrobe.html

You could probably play with the numbers for a larger, long-term wardrobe, but the concepts still hold up.

Good luck!
>>
>>10384804
Oh my gosh, thank you so much!! That anuschka rees blog is the most helpful thing I’ve ever read on the topic! I’ve been looking for something like this for the past couple years to help me with my wardrobe but never found anything so detailed! This will be a big help with refining & clarifying my normie style too. The idea of a proportions and picking just a few to focus on is genius and will help me a lot.

I have a vision of making a pastel vomit era AP capsule wardrobe with one main piece in every rainbow color with rainbows in general being the main theme but other sub themes in it too would be ok. The biggest stumbling block is that the only pastel orange dress I can find is sugary gingham and stylistically it doesn’t quite match. Anyone up for the challenge?
>>
>>10384831
i think the closest thing to orange you can get from that era thats not yellow is salmon pink
>>
>>10384832
Which dresses are more of a salmon pink vs regular AP pink?
>>
>>10384828
Good! Her books on the topic are both helpful, but if you can find the first one (a long, pdf workbook filled with activities and formulas) in her blog I suggest getting that. Otherwise the newer one + associated workbook are also good
>>
>>10384831

Skip orange. Pink, yellow, mint, blue, lav is close enough and adding orange will make the capsule too big
>>
>>10384949
NAYRT but this is fantastic other than that you don't get a good selection of non sheer blouses to wear with the underbust and skirt. The chiffon blouses you chose are too sheer, I have the white and pink one
>>
>>10384498
The sheer black lace blouse is useless with those main pieces. You should rethink how the blouses work with what you chose besides just color

Yw, this is my eternal frustration. I only have a couple blouses that work with that underbust jsk, keep looking for more but sheer and lace are so trendy and I need shirring so usually limited to Meta and AtPie

Not really my wheelhouse, but I tried.

>>10384740
You already got a fabulous reply from >>10384804 but here's my 2c on the lolita-specific side of things. For reference, I made the OP collage, >>10378677 and >>10378140.

My go-to rule is to have 5-6 main pieces, none of which are particularly similar. Then have with blouses/cutsews, have one long-sleeve and one short-sleeve in the neutral (white for sweet, cream for classic, black for gothic etc.). Have one or two in what I call "secondary neutrals" like brown for classic, or whatever the most common colour is in a sweet capsule. Then have a least one that's different - I tend to go for a third colour, but this could also be something in a neutral colour but a dramatic style. Outwear I'd say 3-4 pieces is good, more long sleeve than short, and generally not in the basic neutrals.

Then I accidentally nearly always end up with seven items each of legwear and headwear with most capsules I do. It's not deliberate! But I'd say you need to have a legwear and headwear in at least each colour you have tops in so you can have a base set of matching top/legs/head. Keep a mix of basic and exciting for these.

Three pairs of shoes is good as it gives you variety, and two bags - one practical bag and one more novelty bag.

Though I never include them in collages, for a capsule lolita wardrobe I'm actually a huge fan of having a proportionally huge amount of jewellery and smaller accessories, especially for sweet. These little things are generally cheaper, easy to DIY, and can really add a lot of detail to a look. but they're a pain in the arse to photoshop!

I see what you might mean, but up close the pinks are cooler than they seem in the larger view, and the themes match. It doesn't have any lavender, but the pink, black, and mint should balance that out.

This was a fun game of "how much Maxicimam can I find at 2 am that actually fits in this wardrobe?" Not much, it turns out.

Yeah I am original anon and work picked up. Sorry! Thanks for filling in requests. Your stuff is great.

I may still do some on the weekend when I have a minute.

>>10378288
All in stock currently, all brand or available from WW Fleur or Atelier Pierrot, and a whole lot of brown and classic (which I don't wear). The OPs feel a bit iffy, but I think they work nicely color-wise and contrast with the drapiness of the jsks.

>>10388895
Nicely done! This is beautiful.

A no-brand wardrobe, preferably sweet or classic. I'm talking Bdoyline, Taobao, Western indies etc.

I'd like one with old (2010ish) pastel AP but kinda casual
>>
I'm trying to make a capsule wardrobe irl but the styles and brands I like are too different from each other. My favourite brands are moi meme moitie, emily temple cute and jouetie.
>>
>>10389631
i think that's probably fine? you make 3 or 4 separate capsule wardrobes for each style, brand, or color palette you like.

i have an AP pastel vomit capsule and a black/white/gray classic capsule
>>
>>10389631
Make 2 smaller capsules then. It’s what I do. It helps you sort out what you need to buy to wear with what pieces and control impulse buying without arbitrarily deciding you can only wear one style till you die
>>
>>10388041
Old school
>>
>>10389646
I don't have enough money to make 4 capsule wardrobes. I also need work clothes.

>>10389647
How do I choose which 2 styles?
>>
>>10389631
>>10389738

Do you own any of this stuff already? If not I’d say buy one complete coord from each brand. I don’t know what your preferred colors are but I’m gonna guess and say that what you like in each brand is probably way different that then other brands, otherwise what would be the point? Like I’ve owned black velvet Emily temple before, but it’s more known for its youthful & colorful otome stuff. So as I was saying, if they are completely separate aesthetics, start with one complete coord in each. Then then slowly over time start adding in accessories that match that coord but have a different look and feel to them. And try to get things that match each other. For instance, if you have a red, green, yellow Emily temple cute dress, your first coord could be focusing on green. Then if you add accessories start first by getting a couple red accessories, not one yellow accessory and one red accessory. Slowly over time build up the number accessories you have and then once you’re ready to make another big purchase, try searching for a dress that would match one of your sets of accessories, either yellow or red,. The reason why I said to make sure your accessories match each other is so that you can build another whole complete cord. So if you then bought a dress that has let’s say yellow and black in it you wouldn’t only have one yellow accessory, you now have a whole set of yellow accessories, enough to make a coord with the yellow & black dress. That’s very simplistic and I often don’t just use one color to cord, but that would be my best advice. You’d be building three separate capsules. If you really want to combine them all into one capsule and still use all those brands it’s doable, but you’d be searching for Emily temple cute dresses that look like they could go with MMM dresses (like some of their older black stuff) and I think that defeats the purpose of having and liking such different brands
>>
>>10389631
How about you post your five or so favorites from each brand and then the anons here work from there?

I tried to make a casual pastel AP sweet one for >>10389629 but i think it got away from me.
>>
>>10391038
This is a total cluster, the blue apron doesn't match any of those main pieces. White and neutrals are your friend. It's bold to assume all those lavs and saxs will be the right shade. And some of the accessories like the dark purple hat and baby plastic hair clips make no sense
>>
>>10391318
TY for the input! The hat would be a custom order from an indie brand, so that's basically a placeholder image of the first one I could grab. The bow rings at the bottom are for more straightforward sweet looks.

These three colors are really tough to work with, especially in capsule format, so I can't wait to see what other people come up with.
>>
>>10390413
Gave it a shot!

>>10391318
To be fair to the other anon, Meta’s stock photos are atrocious. I tried to choose photos that were closer to the actual colors of the pieces and werent taken in a basement on a digital camera from 2004

>>10391407
It was a hard request! Neutrals would be what I would add to your collage first. Too many colors can be hard in a small wardrobe
>>
>>10391247
I like it! It’s small but versatile. I think the only thing I would do is add a couple more pairs of sock socks but other than that it’s lpvely
>>
>>10391038
thanks anon! bigtime dream item is that green cardi, and now, those green Meta socks- are they called anything anon? Also source on the white boots and the brown heels please? And good idea on the custom LOTV hat, I just might do that, but that one's adorable and kind of perfect- is it a taobao shop?

>>10391318
>>10391407
yes it's a challenge that I've been working on for 5 years now anons

>>10391427
anon, omg that meta ruffle jsk is to die for, ugh. I LOVE the headbow but I don't think I'll ever come across it. I'm still on the lookout for the OTKs that came in that LP. I'll look for those IW otks too. amazing job anon!

thanks anon! agh now i want them in all colorways
>>
>>10391407
It's not atrocious just really overly optimistic and will likely lead to needing to buy more when it doesn't match or looks unbalanced, thanks for taking concrit.

>>10391427
Yours is really good but still falls into the trap of not using a versatile pair of high quality tan or brown leather oxfords or low heels. The green shoes likely won't match and then all your coords are with cream only. A set of cream shoes and bag, and brown shoes and bag would make this capsule fantastic
>>
>>10391626
This has big larper energy. You do realize at some point you have to suck it up and buy things to see what color they are, right?
>>
>>10391427
Ooh, do you have a link to that apron, anon?

>>10391772
It’s innocent world, so I would keep an eye out on the second hand market https://lolibrary.org/items/iw-tea-party-of-the-wonderland-apron

>>10377218
I use them more as a way to make my wardrobe balanced. I have mini capsules within my wardrobe with 2-3 main items and then I'm missing items (e.g. a dress doesn't have shoes that go well with it, etc) it informs my shopping.
>>
>>10377218
I'm a maximalist, but I use capsule wardrobes as a baseline. I wear black and white in every substyle and ouji, so when I'm getting a new piece, I make several imaginary coords with items I already have. Really, capsules help me most having "base sets" of my neutral that fit a given substyle.

More is more, subtlety and edgy boringness are outdated,I'm not dying until I get a Majestic Pirate Hat to be buried in. If I wanted simplicity I'd eat oatmeal and wear only Uniqlo.
>>
>>10377218
A bit of both. I don't have a lot of space nor do I have the need to own so much lolita stuff since I won't ever get to wear it all. If I let myself go wild, I will have 100 main pieces and nothing else and no space.

You can have a little of maximalist clothes, a lot of minimalist clothes or whatever combination of these two. Having an OTT capsule is still minimalist.

>>10392532
Minimalist aesthetic and electing not to be a hoarder are not the same thing

There's only so much stuff you can own before it gets chaotic/ a storage unit is needed
