Types of Styles
The many types of styles seen can be enormous, but there are a few popular ones that are seen quite often.
Lolita is one of the most popular choices; the 'lolita' fashion is very reminense of old England. Inspired from literature, lolita outfits usually contain frills, ribbons, and bows. Lolita-goers usually carry things like parasols, stuffed animals, and balloons to accesorize. Though most lolita looks are similar, there are different kinds; Baby Doll Lolita, Gothic Lolita, and Rose Lolita. Baby Doll Lolita (also called "Sweet Lolita") is usually made of colors like baby blue & pink. It's sweet and appealing. Gothic Lolita is generally made of darker colors, with odd jewelry and designs. Rose Lolita is checkered red & black, and is generally not as bold as the other two.
Goth styles are everywhere in Harajuku. Consisting of dark colors and intimidating clothing, Goths generally dress to spook.
