I’ve had the chance to visit a friend in Japan over the winter break and got to witness the street fashion in Tokyo! I don’t know what it is over there, but it seems like all the women there always appear so well groomed, meticulously dressed, and looking their best. Definitely a culture shock both when I got there and also when I came back (definitely a different sense of dress code back here in the states!).

What I was probably most amazed with was that even in the most freeing of weather, Japanese women all somehow manage to wear nothing but a thin pair of tights under their shorts or skirts during the winter months. It was FREEZING COLD in Tokyo (I was wearing two jackets and still freezing -___-), and I was dumbfounded when I saw girls wearing skirts and either no tights or knee-high socks!

In any case, that seems to be the trend here. I don’t really see any women wearing jeans like we do in the US! However, flowy shorts and long maxi skirts seems to be very trendy at the moment. The same goes for scalloped beige or nude shorts paired with tights underneath.

Since it’s so cold, most people wear heavy jackets and coats. A lot of the coats here are usually long button-downs—decorated with little bow embellishments, fur trimmings, or any other cute, feminine touches. Also really popular recently are chiffon material-made tops or dresses.

This type of look is very flattering and cute…hope it catches on in the United States!
