One of my favourite accessories if not THE one, is the bonnet. this kind of hat works awesomely with classic, sweet or gothic lolita in many ways, there are different types of construction and materials. For me it’s like wearing a piece of history over your head,.as you saw in my historical beauty post, they were much used in the victorian and regency periods. Lolita brands usually have them and you can find the one to match your outfit in the best way.Angelic Pretty bonnetBaby the stars thine bright bonnets. full bonnet and with bunny yearsVictorian Maiden bonnetmary magdalene bonnetthere are lots of places who make historical bonnets too.all from victorian bonnetswe have of course Triple Fortune. one of the best brands out there, they make the most fantastic bonnets, they are expensive but totally worth it.
