Blouses come in various styles. The most common type has a peter-pan collar and poofy long or short (sometimes detachable) sleeves. While blouses designed for Sweet Lolita may be overly decorated with lace, frills and ribbons, the other styles are usually more toned down. Classic Lolita brands are more prone to carry high collar blouses, rather than peter-pan collar ones.
Lolita blouses may in general feature lace, frills, pin-tucks, jabots, neckties, bows, special shaped buttons, embroidery, and sometimes even pearls or other decorations. Sometimes they also have shirring (a form of gathering) to create special shapes, which will also to fit bigger sized ladies. They're usually worn with skirts or under JSK's.
