Street Style: Japan Edition


My time in Japan last year was amazing - you most probably already picked up that I had an fantastic time and picked up some awesome new make-up. And we are already planning our next trip to the "Land of the Rising Sun" for hopefully christmas and new years this year! (hello white christmas!)

What anyone who travels will first notice about a new country (or is this just me?) is the locals sense of fashion (or make-up) trends, and how it compares to your home countries fashion trends.

Most people would be aware of Japan's somewhat crazy sense of fashion (Harajuku Girls anyone?) But its not all Lolita's and crazy costumes, there are some seriously well dressed ladies and gents getting around.

Now I have taken these pictures sneakily, and some people I have asked and most of these pictures were taken in Tokyo, as I only had the brain snap at the end of our trip for a street style post. Also sorry in advance for any blurriness!

Chicago - My Favourite Thrift Store in Tokyo!! (also my boyf James being silly)

This guy caught me - and pouted like a trooper! ps. man bags are totally a thing in japan!

One of the main things I noticed were the amount of felt hats and beanies people were wearing even though it was 35 degrees and 80% humidity and the middle of summer! But hey, its like that saying "Beauty is Pain".

I can't wait to go back to Japan and capture some more amazing street style. I am off to Melbourne in April, so hopefully I will be able capture some local street style for the next instalment.

    1. It is such a great post! I am going to Melbourne in a couple of months and I'll be doing one for it too! Because I live in a small country town, fashion isn't always the first thing I think of, but going to Melbourne - oh my the fashion there! I am excited!
