First of all, I apologize for the bad photoshop job lol. I wanted it to look pretty. If you can’t see it that well, here’s a full-sized one.
I like to think of lolita and ouji as twins and aristocrat as the elder sibling. Sometimes they can cross over, especially aristocrat and ouji.
Aristocrat: most mature, minimal skin, very straight cuts
Lolita: about knee-length dresses and skirts with poof from a petticoat
Ouji: Boyish, often with fantasy type influences (example: pirates), usually consisting of vest, blouse, and shorts
I typed up a more detailed version on my blog if you’d like to read more.
I like this graphic a lot
Some scans from the Winter 2013 Gothic & Lolita Bible. I love the cover picture!
