Lolita style – original Japanese fashion
By far the most well-known of Japanese fashion is the so-called Japanese Street Fashion. Pairing bright pastel colours with somewhat childlike patterns of clothing, this type of style can be found in many major Japanese cities. In Japanese culture, this bright and childlike type of clothing is seen as cute and fashionable. A version of this type of fashion is also known as Gothic Lolita, which allows for a darker mix of clothing.
Harajuku girls – Japanese punk fashion
In the last few years, this type of fashion, named after an area in Tokyo, has become more popular in Western culture. For instance, Famous singer Gwen Stefani included ‘Harajuku girls’ in her videos and concerts. Using more punk themes and neon colours, this type of style allows you to express beauty in a way that is much different than normal fashion types.
