5 Cute Outfit Ideas From Japanese Influencers | CoolJapan

No matter what your style preference is, from time to time, we experience that moment of boredom that makes us feel like we've got 'nothing to wear' even though our closets are brimming with pieces. And as often told by financial gurus and sustainable fashion advocates, the solution is not to go buy new clothing but to mix up the way you wear the clothes you own. The easiest way to do this is by exploring trending styles in other places. Gaining a fresh perspective will give you new ideas to incorporate into your existing wardrobe. For today, let's look to Japanese style influencers who serve cute outfits that you'll want to cop.

Layered in pastels 

Based in Tokyo, you'll often see Maria Tani sporting pretty yet practical ensembles fit for city life. We're particularly loving this adorable pastel layering using a light lavender bustier dress with a maxi hemline over a short-sleeved turtleneck top in mint. It's great for our tropical weather and a perfect casual alternative to the tee and jeans combo.

Fluff it up

As a lolita slash Harajuku model, RinRin serves cutesy looks even in her casual, daily outfits. If you're looking for a fun and maximalist way to spice up your outfit, you can try this style tip from her and pick a textured skirt to go with a top with a long or asymmetrical hemline.

A pop of colour

Naomi Watanabe has been making waves in the international arena lately. She first rose to worldwide fame after she did a comedic impression of Beyoncé, which garnered her the nickname "Japanese Beyoncé". But that's not the only reason why she's gaining popularity, her artistic makeup looks paired with her flamboyant style also caught the attention of fashionistas all over the world. Our latest favourite from her recent looks is this go-getter outfit with a pop of colour. How to cop it? Simply take your colourful, sleeved top and pair it with a pinafore and leggings. Easy!

Unconventional matchy-matchy

YouTuber Ami Ishii is almost always spotted decked in monochromatic pieces with a few pops of print here and there, but this particular look is an exception and we're digging it. You can still see a hint of minimalism in this look with the sleek outerwear and beret, but the unconventional colour matching of dress and socks tied the ensemble in a fresh and cute way. 

Casually sophisticated

Being a fashion designer herself, Michiko Yamanaka's style is impeccable. Her signature look seems to be on the minimalistic side and features a lot of whites and greys. Even though she mostly works with basic colours, she keeps it fresh by adding interesting details like tops with unique cuts, simple patterns and animal prints. Take a cue from how she elegantly paired this toga top with striped pants. It's still casual but has a certain air of sophistication.
