Kuro is a substyle of lolita that utilizes all-black coordinates. The style is also considered a microstyle by some, or an extension of Gothic Lolita.
Kuro lolita is closely tied to Gothic Lolita, and describes an offshoot of the style that is almost identical, save for its use of only black clothing and accessories. The name "kuro" (黒) means "black" in Japanese. No other colors are used in kuro lolita, save for different colors of hair. Some consider the style to simply be Gothic Lolita, and insist that the term "kuro" is unncessary. However, the term is widely used to this day.
