Harajuku is the Japanese version of “haute couture”;  a lovely style with a wacky twist.  Above, I’ve included a recent harajuku girl style that I just cannot get over.  I love fashion and I’m always on the hunt on the web for the latest and hottest international trends.  And I just happened to come across this photo on the tokyofashion.com site.  This is an amazing site for fashion lovers 🙂 .

The Analysis:

For one, I am very attracted to the skirt and bomber jacket style.  Plus the cardigan she’s wearing has little bowties as buttons, which is a positive for this outfit.  It creates a rocker with a sweet taste in fashion sort of a look.  I mean, the majority of her clothing color is black and red, which if worn incorrectly can end up looking horrendously emo… But this harajuku girl does a good job making herself “haute couture.”  Also, she matches her heels and black stockings very adorably.  As we all know, black stockings and high heels can create the wrong image, *ehem ehem* prostitute.  LOL and back to the whole cute skirt thing, I am a huge fan of the lace on there.  Obviously this type of skirt is “in” this year, but all I’ve seen are these type of skirts with flower patterns or solid colors on them!  The lace on it is a very fresh and fashionable idea.  Love it.  🙂  And as well all know, fashion is about the entire image.  Not only are this girl’s items of clothing cute, she also has a kawaii haircut- set with bangs and all- to put the cherry on top of this ensemble.  😉

Japan Fashion Week

I’m an avid follower of fashion news.  Every new innovation in the fashion world is immediately known to me.  I find fashion an interesting topic.  Every single designer has their own “style” and even though some styles are “uncreative” and “lacking material”, I feel that there is still some story behind it.  Personally, I love either the really elegant clothing or the wacky, crazy style.  That’s why I’m IN LOVE with Japanese fashion.

If you look above, you’ll see some designs from Japan Fashion Week.  I’d say those styles shown are more of the wacky, crazy style I’m talking about.  But, you know what?  IT HAS EDGE. Those dresses are absolutely brilliant; I love the prints, the appliques, the look, and most importantly, the silhouette.  To me, it all comes down to the silhouette and how it is presented on the model.  When I see those dresses, I feel like I’m no longer on Earth, but rather a different world (don’t worry, I’m not crazy, I’m just describing the effect the designs have on me).  Ya…. so moving on the Japanese Street Fashion….. I present you with…..

School Girl Fashion

TADAAA!!!!!  I’m sorry, but I’m crazy about Japanese street fashion in addition to their elegant clothing.  I love how the Japanese are not afraid to go crazy with what they want to wear.  It’s like they don’t have a fear of what others will think of them.  What courage they have… hahah… But anyways, I love the school girl look that they favor so much.  As you can see, there are many different variations of the school girl look, but each one represents the same idea: an innocent girl who is NOT AFRAID of expressing her inner beauty.  Well, that’s a little lesson about Japanese fashion.  Maybe one day I’ll come back on this topic when I learn a little bit more about Japanese Fashion.  Hope you enjoyed reading this little blurb!
