Anyone reminded of baby bats when they see the red+black color combination? I think we've got the same thing as itas and black-and-white lolitas. (Now go read FYeahLolita's legendary post on the topic)
Suggestions on not being a baby bat for red+black patterns
- Red leather always looks great. Aim for the real thing...if you're vegan, you're better off with small pleather pieces or just buy black-only.
- If you don't have a lot of money, get cheap velvet...cheap velvet looks like expensive velvet, pretty much. Velvet hides bad design pretty well.
- Stay away from red straight-type designs on black t-shirts...this will never NOT be baby bat.
- baby bats tend to overdo it, and the contrasting red+black just multiplies this, so you've got an exponential increase in EXTREME. So when you get red+black corset stitching, D-rings, rivets, hangy strappy things
- Spend the extra money on quality red statement pieces and buy cheap black items to go with it. The color black hides cheap fabric, bad design, bad lace, bad fit, bad everything.
