Black on Black

One thing that I always curious about Japan is the Harajuku street style. I was hoping that it would be easy for me to find Harajuku people in the city, but I was wrong. Most people in Japan dress up in a casual-effortless way.

When I was walking around in Tokyo, I looked at how they put their clothes together, especially the youngster. Black is the most commonly worn color. These two items caught my attention on the street

  1. Underclothing as clothes

It is not a new phenomenon on the street style. The idea of layering and trends has broken out the boundaries. I saw them wearing it on top of a T-shirt, shirt, and dress. But make sure that there will be no wrinkles or gathered on the clothes underneath it to make the look more neat and clean. Wearing it with tight clothes, collar neck, or crop tee is the other option.

This is how I wore it

I didn’t put my shirt underneath the underclothing. I wore it as an outer. Pairing it with flare-fringy pants and pointed toe half boot make the look edgier but there is a sense of country style.

  1. Tulle

I saw many girls here wearing a dress or skirt made of tulle. What makes it more interesting is that it is lace-decorated. You know what? I somehow brought along my tulle dress to Japan. It made me excited!

I wore the black skirt as an undergarment. The T-shirt made a big statement to the whole look. I tied it up because it is too long. The pink color of the socks popped up in the midst of the dark.

I guess that both of them can be a new trend. Do you agree or disagree?
