When you think of street fashion, Tokyo surely has its place. From being dressed up like dolls(literally) to wearing famous anime character overalls to some real funky styling, there is umpteen number of such trends. While one part of the crowd(mostly the younger ones) stick to these street styles, the other part of the crowd mostly dresses according to the seasons. People in Tokyo, take care of every detail to ensure perfection and here are some of the looks.
During spring, the main fashion staples are trench coats and denim jackets. You can pair it with jeans and T-shirt or with a dress. Layering is preferred as it can get cold during the nights and a striped black and white tee comes handy for such layering.
The look is kept simple, as it can get quite hot during summers. Pull out your basics like dresses, shorts, camisole overlay or skirts and flaunt them throughout. Neutral or pastel colours are the best to beat the heat. Complete the look by wearing sneakers or sandals along with skin colour stockings.
Another trend which is quite common these days are palazzo pants or culottes. They are super comfortable and you can wear them throughout the day. Pair palazzos with solid tees and add a floral shrug to complete the look. You can also add a hat as a fun element and it will protect you from the sun too. The footwear is again sneakers or sandals along with stockings. Fashionable yet simple, right?
The temperatures drop, leaves turn their colour and a fairy atmosphere is set. Include your cardigans and simple coats in the shades of beige or grey in your look and they also complement with the colourful surroundings. Stockings worn along with oxfords will surely give you some Instagram worthy pictures!!
Winters are cold and turn magical at some places as it snows. Pull out everything that’s going to make you feel cosy and warm. Pair your long coats with boots and everything woollen. And yes don’t forget to enjoy your hot chocolate 🙂
Therefore, fashion in Tokyo is kept simple, chic and elegant. So girls, take inspiration from the above looks and now you know what all to pack for your trip. Lastly, do take plenty of sneakers as one needs to walk a lot when in Japan. Sayonara!! 🙂
