|Tokyo street fashion (all photos taken by tokyofashion.com)|
No matter how much my own personal style has changed over the years I still have that fondness and love for the young people of Tokyo who have the courage and the passion to show their personalities through their sense of style. They are always pushing the boundaries and setting new heights for others. It's truly inspirational as someone who has a love for make up to see. I get instant ideas for photo shoots and make up concepts.
It soon got me to thinking about how easy it would be to bring a little Tokyo style into my wardrobe. Fortunately I'm lucky enough to live close to Camden Town the alternative cultural mecca of London, for others it may not be as easy. So I decided to do a little internet online 'window' shop. All the items I have found can be bought on your average high street or shopping centre. I chose a few items that could bring a little of that japanese flair to your wardrobe.
|Baby Bear Faux Fur Trapper from Accessorize £25|
|Eye Patch from Topshop £8.50|
Feeling a little adventurous? Why not try this Studded Eye Patch from Topshop!
|Cream Bow Lace Skirt from River Island £25|
This cream lace skirt is perfect for a cute spring time lolita look.
|Contrast Pocket and Collar Dress By Sister Jane from Topshop £70|
This dress is on the slightly pricey side but it's perfect for the cute school preppy look and also adds a splash of colour into any outfit you wear! It reminds me of Minnie Mouse!
|Bow detail over the knee Socks from New Look.|
These over knee socks are almost like an essential part of the Harajuku style and the best thing about these socks from New Look are they are now on sale for £2! Bargain!
So there you have it! It's as simple as that! Don't forget to mix and match, do not be afraid of clashing prints and ultimately Tokyo style is all about being yourself and being unique, so don't go with the trends, go against them! Enjoy!
