Runway Looks, Lolita Style - Zac Posen

Images via NYMAG

Asian inspirations seems to be an ongoing theme. Zac Posen focused on Japan with dresses with stiff styled obis, folds and incorporated it into the more fitted looks he's known for.

I'm a big sucker for Asian styled prints, and Posen uses peonies a bit.

Peonies symbolizes riches.

With the model's hair styled in a slick bun with stiff swallowtail-like feather accents, Zac Posen made you feel like it was pre-war Japan.

Peekaboo shoulder sleeves suit her.
Unlike Jason Wu, I'm not going straight to a Wa-Lolita outfit. Instead I took kimono-like tops and layered them with a Chained Bouquet skirt.  The emerald green jacket plays off the jewel-tone colors I'm seeing in a lot of the collections.

Emerald Green Jacket - $10
Kimono shirt - $10
Kimono black sheer blouse - $60
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Chained Bouquet Skirt (red) - $80
