Breeches vs. Skirt?

Hello! I'm a gender queer and have been looking for something to wear to my school's prom for a while, but I don't feel comfortable wearing a suit or a dress. I have been very interested in lolita styles for years, and decided that I could wear a elegant aristocratic lolita outfit for the occasion.

This is the top I've been thinking of getting: http://www.fanplusfriend.com/elegant...tant-shipping/ But I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out the bottom. Do you think it would be acceptable to wear a skirt on the bottom of this like ( http://www.fanplusfriend.com/chiffon...tant-shipping/ )? Or do you think it would only look good with breeches? Is there any other combinations you think would look alright?

Thank you!!!

I think either way could look adorable. If you go with the skirt I would get black then coord it with other cute things in the color of black,blue, and silver. But if pants are more your thing try the more masculine counter part of lolita called ouji that has tons of cute things to look like a little prince. While it's mainly suppose to make the wear appear more masculine compared to lolita (with shorts instead of skirts) I've seen both boys and girls pull off the look because it's still very cute and elegant like a little prince. Obviously the jacket can work for either so surly it could be a very versatile piece for you since it can be worn in a feminine or masculen way... hope I helped a little.

i think thw top could go well with either! however, if you're going the skirt route I think a different style may look better since the top is more structured and the skirt is so flowy being chiffon. Maybe look into a skirt in a heavier fabric with big box pleats? it may look more cohesive, just my opinion though

I think it would look fine with a skirt, but that particular one is a chiffon underskirt. It's sheer and meant to be worn under a shorter skirt for extra length. It would most likely look odd my itself. I think it'd look nice with a black structured or a-line skirt so it won't overpower the jacket. Plus then you'd have a nice versatile piece for other coords.
