It's as if they've been ripped out of a fashion magazine. Perfectly styled clothes, the occasional no make-up look, minus the Photoshop. The Japanese seem to pull it off effortlessly.
I’m no fashion expert nor do I know much about it but I think they have a great sense of style. All the pieces that they wear go well together as if meticulously selected. I sometimes wonder if they have personal stylists.
Needless to say, I had the grandest time people-watching and scanning them from head to toe. Hopefully none of them took offense. Here are random winter looks I saw in Tokyo:
|I super like his jacket!|
|People still wore boots on a sunny day.|
|Guy and girl kimonos!|
|I super like the girl's red backpack!|
|Guys out on the street. I wonder how much hair product they put on.|
|People-watching seemed like a fashion show at times.|
|I super like his jacket... and bag!|
|Trivia: The yellow strip he's walking on has embossed lines to guide the blind.|
|It's normal to see people walking around with luggage.|
Typical work outfit on the left.
I can't imagine wearing that everyday!
How do they keep warm down there?!
|She crossed the street effortlessly.|
|Yup, a lot of girls wore mini skirts or shorts even if it was 0* out.|
|They look like dolls!|
|Saleslady in Harajuku.|
|Who wore it best?|
|Baby girl look.|
|Interesting color combinations all over!|
|Her luggage is a definite stand out.|
|Long skirts were a rare sight.|
|No socks! I wonder how cold his feet were!|
(Some people wore masks if they had a cold. I think it's also for added warmth.)
|These two reminds me of a pair in the office.|
|Formal wear! She was a secondary sponsor in a wedding.|
|I just had to take a picture of this!|
|Maids from the maid cafes? Not too sure.|
|The only Japanese I saw who wore shades.|
Something interesting that my friend Tiff noticed while we were there: the Japanese don't seem to wear sunglasses! The sun was extra blinding one day and we were the only ones wearing shades! Is it because they have chinky eyes? Hhhhm.
