When we think about Japanese fashion trends, our imagination often turns to over-the-top street stylings seen in the Harajuku district of Tokyo or in the pages of Fruits. While the distinct fashion subcultures showcased there are certainly still thriving, the streets of Tokyo are brimming with more accessible Japanese fashion trends bound to inspire some of your more adventurous outfit stylings. Japanese fashion girls put their own twist on jumpsuits in khaki and denim iterations, liven up ensembles with bold pops of bright yellow, play with proportions in dramatic maxi skirts and wide-leg pants, and ground their venturesome stylings with black leather shoes that range from classic (ankle boots or Mary Janes) to fashion-forward (platform brogues and pointed-toe flats that harken back to the Elizabethan era). Look no further than below for the latest in Japanese fashion trends.
