❥Ouji / Oujisama (Prince), Ouji-loli (Prince Lolita), or Shounen-kei (boystyle) [see note] are all common terms that refer to the boyish cute, punky, gothic or piratey male style that is often featured along with Lolita fashion. Despite being a male style, the majority dressing in it are women.
❥Ouji can be cute and childish, with a mini top hat, a vest worn over a ruffled shirt, knickerbockers, over-knee socks and platform shoes with wooden soles. But it can also be more mature and Gothic; top hat, a coat or swallowtail jacket worn over a ruffled blouse, long pants, Gothic boots / shoes.
Knickerbockers / shorts are generally worn for a boyish look. For a more mature Gothic look, long pants are common. Skorts are common with punk
❥It may also feature punk elements, such as ties, chains, studded belts, striped socks and a skort (skirt with pants). Alice & the Pirates often release pirate-influenced Ouji clothing, where tall-collared long coats decorated with buttons, and mini pirate hats are frequent.
❥Accessories include capes, cravats, ties, suspenders, chains, studded belts, safety pins, normal belts, canes, guns and treasure chests
❥Shoes range from platform shoes with wooden soles, to tall Gothic platform boots. Heels are common for both men and women
❥To some extent, Gothic Ouji may resemble a late 18th- and early 19th century western fashion known as dandy.
