J-drama heroines wear ensembles that are closer to what we would wear everyday, which makes their looks a lot easier to copy. But where exactly would you get the fashion inspiration you need? Look no further than these stylish Japanese heroines you can watch on Netflix.
Natsume Hyakuta from Followers
Directed by Japanese photographer Mika Ninagawa, Followers is about meek country girl Natsume Hyakuta (Elaiza Ikeda), who rose to sudden social media fame. This was after her photo was taken by renowned fashion photographer Limi Nara (Miki Nakatani). Natsume’s style includes cosy hoodies and biker shorts to neon-coloured crop tops and high-slit pants resembling retro looks that are back on trend.
How to get her signature style: Experiment with prints-on-prints. Natsume’s looks are very similar to the typical Harajuku street style, where neon and textured fabrics as well as patterns are the highlights of any outfit. Natsume also loves maximalist accessories like big hoop earrings or a thick choker.
Momoko Adachi from Our Sister’s Soulmate
If cosy outfits are more your style, Momoko Adachi’s cute numbers in Our Sister’s Soulmate are the one to watch. Her comfy chic looks match her warm and bubbly personality which shines through despite the challenges of raising her three brothers after they were orphaned at an early age.
How to get her signature style: Momoko loves plaid. She then pairs it with a plain garment. White sneakers complete the look.
