A very distinctive property of Lolita fashion is the aesthetic of cuteness. This clothing subcuture can be categorized into three main substyles: 'gothic', 'classic', and 'sweet' Many other substyles such as 'Sailor', 'Country', 'Hime' (princess), 'Ero', 'Guro', 'Oriental', 'Punk', 'Shiro (white)', Kuro (black) and Steampunk Lolita also exist . This style has evolved into a widely followed subculture in Japan and the rest of the world.
