The fashion is evolving and is spreading across the world with more people joining the communities everyday.
Though what the future of Lolita fashion will be is going to be a big mystery but we can always dream about it.
For the future of Lolita fashion I would like to see the comeback of the free spirits. Not in a hippy way but more in the way where people can express themselves without the fear of being not good enough. A lot of the people I speak have a general fear when it comes to attending meetings or events about their coords. Thoughts like "Am I dressed good enough for this event?" "I'm going to be so underdressed" "What will they think of my coord" etc. I feel like this is becoming a big play factor for events. Not that it is a bad thing, it surely brings the best of everyones abilities to coord into the world. But for new ladies and men that just started out feel a certain pressure to get started.
Other than a change in mindset and the pressure we put on ourselves and the ones on the secret sites bashing on everyones coord I would like to see more lower waistlines. These days I feel like the waistlines of dresses are getting higher and higher. I guess it is the trend now of wearing high waisted or empire waist dresses, but girl ain't nobody looks good in that. Maybe people with small breasts or a small ribcage can rock these dresses but a lot of the western population doesn't fit in this category including me.
I don't think I would like to change the fashion to much over time cause I really like the way it is going right now. Maybe slowing down the releasing of new prints, Angelic Pretty is pretty good at releasing prints around the clock! As well as the Taobao market brings up new releases almost everyday. I have the feeling that lolita fashion is becoming some sort of fast fashion, especially with the indie brands on Taobao. Not so much with the Japanese brands but still, do people still look for old pieces or dream dresses? I know for sure that I prefer older pieces over the new releases most of the time.
Lolita fashion will change over time but because of the huge following here in the west I don't think it will change drastically. We still follow the rules about the general shape, not to much skin showing and a proper way of dressing. These rules will guide us through every evolution of this fashion and our love for frilly dresses will never change for most of us I think.
