Nymphet Fashion // Outfit of the Day




Nymphet fashion is a style directly inspired by the character Dolores Haze in both the book, and the 1997 movie, Lolita. While the book is full of descriptions of Lolita’s outfits, the movie does a perfect job at making them a reality. It is a girly yet mature style, inspired by the 1950’s and perfect for wearing in the summertime.


In this outfit-of-the-day, I attempted to create a nymphet style outfit using what I could find in my closet. I started off with my new favorite shirt (yes, it’s the one I wore in my last makeup post). I found this shirt at Forever 21 in the clearance section for $5. What a deal! It is my favorite shade of pink and overall a super precious piece that has easily become a favorite.


For the bottoms, I wanted to give the look a bit of a sophisticated feel. I went for some nice grey trousers that I thrifted a little while back. I rolled them up at the bottom to make them cuter and more summery. I added my tan mules as a great summertime sandal, and carried around my Nine West bag (seriously the cutest purse ever).


On the day I wore this, I wasn’t feeling makeup, so if you would like a makeup look to go with this outfit, you can check out my post titled Sweet & Glam 60’s Makeup. I also didn’t add any jewelry, but I think simple is the best with nymphet style. Add a choker or a couple thin bracelets to accessorize this look.


You will definitely see me in this shirt again at some point this summer, probably over on my Instagram. It’s definitely the most nymphet-ish piece I own, so I’ll probably create more Lolita inspired looks with it eventually.

What do you think of nymphet style? Is it something you’d wear?
