oh come on, it’s literally the jsk with a black blouse and the matching beret, it’s not even a full coord
>>
>>10565463
It’s pretty much the same rule as salopettes imo - some short girls can get away with it if there’s enough poof under the skirt so that it’s big and contrasts with a small waist, and the rest of the coord reads very lolita, but most of the time people get it wrong and it just looks like cute jfashion (and that’s ok!!!!!)

in my experience, the majority of /cgl/ says AP miniskirts are not lolita. which jfashion it is depenends on how it's styled - you can't say a blanket statement like all miniskirts are fairy kei, because pic related clearly isn't. some people do argue that it's casual lolita.

I hope this isn’t too general for the worn thread as it’s not a specific piece, but I would love to see general coord inspiration for bittersweet coords where the main piece has no black in it. Double points for ones that don’t involve “spoopy” themes like bats. Pic related has always been inspirational to me but I’d love to see more

Don’t (You) for using the term bittersweet, ok?
>>
>>10576787
bittersweet requires spooky in order to be bittersweet. black doesnt make it bittersweet but it does require spooky
>>
>>10576789

Black is literally the sole thing that makes stuff "bittersweet"
>>

no it's the spooky element u retard. it uses black with pastels so im saying that >>10576787
is fucking dumb for asking that

Bittersweet is just black colorways of pastel/sweet prints generally. I guess you could go as far as to say it is sweet coorded with black like the photo the requester posted but in no world is Sugary Carnival or cotton candy shop in black spoopy; even someone with brain damage can see that.
>>
>>10576787
>>10576789

You can literally google this and find the origins of the term "bittersweet", along with how it was defined

https://egl.livejournal.com/12264316.html

(Yes, it's such a long and spechul snowflake tl,dr. Why do you think people (You)'d for using the term bittersweet? the original creator was a bit of snowflake herself)
>>
>>10576813
> Granted, I also believe that every sub category shouldn't be limited to a single definition.
> Merely, I hope that this post will inspire those around me and generate the possibility of further discussion with others.
> I believe a part of me wants to bring this up for discussion as well because sometimes I get so tired of fashion defined in black and white.

Even special snowflake OP doesn’t want this to be so black and white and argument-causing. Chill the fuck out, everyone. We’re supposed to be having fun lol
>>
>>10576815
if the vibes are bittersweet, then you’re bittersweet
>>
>>10576813
>>10576815

The point is, bittersweet is sweet in black colorways. The anon claiming it needs to be "spooky" and doesn't need to be black is an idiot with the nerve to call someone else a retard because they themselves got the definitions of creepycute/pastel goth confused with bittersweet.

No one had any issues with the definition of bittersweet but the sperg claiming it needs spooky motifs to be bittersweet.
>>
>>10576899
The whole point that >>10576815 was making was that there’s no fixed definition of bittersweet. Cool the fuck down - you don’t need to call someone a “retard” because they want to include creepy cute within bittersweet. I would actually argue that something like holy lantern in pink would class as bittersweet, because it mixes gothic and sweet elements.
The person I agree with most in this cursed thread is actually >>10576858 saying it’s a “vibe”, although that person admittedly sounds a bit like a Tiktok teen. Weird times, gulls.
>>
>>10576815
>>10576919

>whole post full of sweet in black colourways
>whole post is about making sweet in black colourways a substyle
>entire reason for that substyle is that sweet in black colourways feels different
>lj comments all talking about sweet in black colourways

>your takeaway: "Oh yah it's whatever I cherry pick it to be"

Well at least we confirmed that anyone using the "bittersweet label" is nuts.

Anyway, I'm out. It's too idiotic to discuss this with idiots.

bittersweet-chan would wear HL in black to twin with sweet-chan who wears it in pink. did you even bother reading the link? link OP posts her example of a bittersweet coord, and it's strawberry themed - no gothic motifs at all, only black. you are definitely thinking of creepycute, so just use that word and you'll be fine.
>>
Is there really a fucking argument going on here about what constitutes as bittersweet?

Bittersweet is LITERALLY only a blackxpastel colorway of an OTT sweet dress, which is typically Angelic Pretty. Obviously, it can be other things but that is the age old definition.

God, you lolitas still have your bloomers up your ass about bittersweet even more than a decade later.

There is NOTHING else that is part of bittersweet other than blackxpastel colors in OTT.

Not creepy. Not pastel goth. They can obviously be part of it, but it's not what constitutes as bittersweet.
>>
>>10576792
The spooky element makes it pastel goth.
>>
>>10576943
>>The spooky element makes it pastel goth.
While I'd tend to agree that it ends up being pastel goth, pastel goth isn't part of the lolita sub genres in the first place. It's still bittersweet under the lolita umbrella. It'd just be pastel goth and bittersweet.
>>
>>10576944
The issue is that the pastel goth community probably flooded into lolita at some point or another. But it was pretty apparently a lot of lolitas did pastel goth and vice versa. There's a lot of egirls out there that just wear hot topic mall goth clothes and think it's pastel goth, too, even though pastel goth is a jfashion. So there's a lot of fucked up nuances from pastel goth being such a mainstreamed fashion due the name.
>>
>>10576945
>The issue is that the pastel goth community probably flooded into lolita at some point or another
pastel goth/bittersweet were a big thing around 2010
>>
>>10576939
People tried saying that here >>10576802 and other times, but the dumbass obsessed with it being spoopy just won't quit.

Just don't waste your energy on them anon.
>>
>>10576950
Someone's gotta educate the newfraglitas. Look at the shit explosion on CoF. Someone seriously needs to come out with the proper definitions again apparently. I mean all the resources are out there, but it's like these idiots think coming from egirl fashion = can just do lolita with thrown together Dolls Kill pieces + a lolita jsk.

Not according to the person who came up with it >>10576813. Does this look like pastel OTT AP to you?
>>
>>10576963
Ok. They are ita as shit, but who cares. The term got used for OTT black sweet dresses the most.
>>
>>10576963
This outfit looks ita as shit though.

Just fucking Google bittersweet lolita you smoothbrains, it will be mostly pastel, mostly AP prints, all sweet, all in black colorways.
>>
>>10576966
because they're black and sweet. that's it, that's the definition. not anything else, not creepy, not OTT, not pink HL. just black and sweet.
>>
>>10576970
This is what I've been saying the whole goddamned time. While people are correct it is often AP and pastel sweet, that's probably just a consequence of pastel AP being one of the most popular sweet styles. Bittersweet is just sweet in black colorways.
>>
>>10576963

Anon. That's a sweet cutsew with a sweet headbow. And a strawberry necklace. With a cherry print skirt.

It's just sweet in black.

That's what bittersweet is, and that's why people laugh at it.
>>
>>10576981
Does bittersweet really apply to old school though? I only see people use it to describe 2010+ sweet in black.
>>
>>10576984
Old school already has a name so no one feels the urge to give it an extra qualifier to feel speshul like bittersweetfags; for some reason just calling their shit sweet in black is not enough for them.
>>
>>10576984

>>10576963 came directly from the livejournal post. It's the girl herself.

And she already says it's sweet. Her entire article basically boils down to "sweet in black should be called bittersweet". That's it. That's all there is to it.

Bittersweet is black sweet prints. Usually black/pink sweet coords.

Spooky whatever bullshit is pastel goth. Go back to your shit hole retard. You're banned from bittersweet, I revoke your membership.
>>
bittersweet isn't real, it was just a bunch of sweet lolitas who wanted to be spechul during the OTT sweet era because their high-contrast border prints didn't help them stand out. creepy cute wasn't even a style, just a theme and you didn't even need to wear black to wear it, just get some eyeball bows and go.
>>
>>10577055
>just get some eyeball bows and go

Eyeball bows, drippy pastel text that says "edgy" stuff like 'fuck you' and 'die' and a tumblr blog full of shitty polyvore outfits and Kyary's Ponponpon or Fashion Monster MV screengrabs
>>

>>bittersweet isn't real

Next thing you're going to tell me is that santa isn't real.
>>
>>10577057
Kyary is definitely not pastel goth related, maybe she influenced it a bit but no.

Pastel goth was black(maybe there was text too), galaxy tights, drippy shit, and eyeball bows back in it's conception.
>>
>>10577067
They said creepy cute anon. Eyeball bows and Kyary who used tons of eyeballs and bat wings and monster motifs was popular with the weebs of that crowd especially.
>>
>>10577067
if you weren't around back then, sit down and let the adults talk. pastel goth didn't even need those motifs, just a black or lavender shirt with a "kawaii" graphic, and some sort of bondage harness thigh highs.
