Strawberry jam outfits

New dress means new outfits for this blog. That's just how it works around here. So please welcome to the page, Jam Paradise by Rococo Soul!

This print is adorable and, as you can see, has a lot more colours to it thank just the obvious brown and red. However, I found the shade of brown tricky to match as it's quite light. All my brown blouses and boleros were too dark, as was my red blouse. However, I still managed to put together my standard three outfits exploring different looks and I also have some new blouses on their way to me which will increase my coording possibilities.

First up is a very straightforward look look. I'd probably do two braids with the blue bows on the bottom for a hairstyle for this. I like how this look is really towing the line between sweet and classic; the elements are sweet but the styling is more classic leaning.

And then there is this outfit, which I adore! I would wear this in a heartbeat. There isn't any pink in the print, but I still felt like it matched really well. This kind of casual lolita is totally my jam (haha, see what I did there?).

Lastly I wanted to take a more otome path. I'm not 100% sold on that cardigan: I bought it from an op shop and it's been sitting in my "to modify" pile since it's too long for my tastes. I pulled it out because I thought it'd go great with this dress (which, as far as colour goes, it does) but I'm honestly not sure how much I like it as a garment and I'm still debating whether it's worth the effort of shortening it. Have any of my readers ever shortened a cardigan and feel like giving me an opinion on it?

All in all this JSK has a lot of coording potential. There are so many colours in the print that it goes with pretty much anything and because of its cut it can run the range from full lolita to full otome. In all honesty I'm probably going to wear it in a casual way most often but it was fun to have a play around with it and explore a few possibilities.
