Trend: Lolita Hijab Fashion
Kawaii and hijab finally met.
Just recently, photos of young hijabis incorporating lolita fashion with hijab has been circulating and gaining popularity in social networking site, Twitter. Some netizens were actually amazed at how lolita can be hijabified.
Lolita fashion (ロリータ・ファッション Rorīta fasshon) is a fashion subculture originating in Japan that is based on Victorian-era clothing, but the style has expanded greatly beyond Japan. The Lolita look began primarily as one of modesty with a focus on quality in both material and manufacture of garments. (Wikipedia)
