  1. Aristocrat

    Aristocrat is a Japanese street fashion that is inspired by what is thought to have been worn by Middle Class and higher social status Europeans in the Middle Ages, as well as the upper class in the 19th century. The fashion includes long sleeve blouses and shirts, long skirts, corsetry, and pants and dresses that are styled similarly for men and women, since it is centered on androgyny and elegance. Makeup, when worn with the fashion, is on the darker side, may be heavy, and can be worn by both genders. Madam, the feminine version, is more influenced by 19th century fashion. The fashion includes, in addition to the above, dresses with feminine but not usually frilly styling in a variety of colors. Makeup, when worn, is usually mature and on the slightly heavier side, though not excessive. Subcategories of the fashion include: ⁕Erotic Aristocrat: A more revealing version including lace and lower necklines ⁕Gothic Aristocrat ⁕Sweet Aristocrat: Usually features pastels, light colors and a lighter feel
