Hello everyone! It's been a little while since my last post so, I thought I'd write something fun and cute this time! Tokyo Otaku Mode had a really cute and fun breakdown on Japanese fashion and I thought that I could share it with you. It could possibly be helpful for those of you who want to get into J-fashion or just want to learn a little bit more about the different types of J-fashion.
The first J-fashion style that I'm going to be introducing to you all is Himekaji. "Himekaji" comes from the words "Princess" (Hime) and "Casual" (-kaji). This look is a more toned down, princess inspired version of popular Gyrau. fashion. This style is very feminine and has a romantic feel to it.~ Perfect for any everyday princess in your life~ A few popular Himekaji brands include the well-known Liz Lisa brand, Pinkymika, Tralala, DreamV, Penderie, and Ank Rouge. Interested in Himekaji and don't know where to start? That's okay! Tokyo Otaku Mode has various Himekaji clothes, shoes, and accessories!

The next J-fashion style that I am very happy to introduce you to is Fairy Kei! Fairy Kei consists of dreamy pastels and hints of retro 80's pop imagery (such as Barbie). This style is perfect for those of you who are young at heart! This style is very playful, fun and is deffinately one of my fashion J-fashion styles. A few opular Faisy Kei brands include Milklim, Swankiss, Spank!, Candy Stripper, and Swimmer. Interested in Fairy Kei and don't know where to start? That's okay!

There's many other sub-styles (cult party kei for example). A few popular Harajuku fashion brands are Listen Flavor, 6% Doki Doki, Bubbles, and KOKOkim.
