Summer is also when I turn to Cult Party kei for fashion inspiration, as most of my lolita clothing is dark colours and heavy fabrics.
An upcoming trend in both lolita and other jfashions seems to be ballet-style shoes, and outfits.

On the right I am wearing Melissa ballet flats from shopmelissa.com/
and my current favourite all-white hnaoto dress.
I also recently treated myself to these amazing Irregular Choice shoes;
They go with nothing. And that'd the point imho! This does mean I own TWO pairs of holographic/irridescent shoes... but with everything going on this summer, I feel like I deserve it.
Another Cult Party trend that's been popping up in other jfashions is big, round glasses. Really BIG glasses. They're so cute!

While looking for a similar pair for myself I stumbled upon these heart-shaped versions of the Big Glasses and couldn't resist! They're just from ebay, and come in a variety of glass-colours too if you wanted to get a pair to wear as sunglasses!
