EGL (Elegant Gothic Lolita) and EGA (Elegant Gothic Aristocrat) are terms coined by Mana, previously of the Japanese Visual band Malice Mizer.

Elegant Gothic Lolita refers to the fashion of frilly, ruffled knee-length dresses, and ruffled headbands, and only refers to females.

Elegant Gothic Aristocrat refers to a more subdued, refined dressing, usually consisting of longer dresses or coats, and can refer to both females and males.

There are different kinds of groups of lolitas in Japan, however EGA is rare and the style is usually up to the individual.

She donned a frilly bonnet, an apron, a lacy shirt, and a poofy skirt before stepping out of the house. Even though we knew what she was trying to dress like a girl in The Gothic and Lolita Bilbe, she still looked like a child.
