Japanese actress Honoka Matsumoto leads Netflix’s latest original movie 桜のような僕の恋人 (Love Like The Falling Petals), which was released on the platform on 24 March worldwide. Honoka stars opposite Kento Nakajima (from the idol group Sexy Zone), in this melodrama. It’s about Haruto Asakura (Nakajima), an aspiring photographer who lost all motivation to pursue his dreams, and Misaki Ariake (Matsumoto), a bubbly hairdresser whose life suddenly turns around when she gets diagnosed with a rare genetic illness.
Judging by the synopsis, we’re gonna need tons of tissue. But whether you decide to stream the movie or not (for the reason stated earlier), we’re giving you another reason why Honoka should be on your radar: her cute Instagram fashion moments.
Similar to her character in the film, Honoka’s preference for relaxed yet chic ensembles is a delight to see. Here are some of our favourite Honoka outfits that graced her grid.
Orange puffy turtleneck and jumper dress
When we think of jumper dresses, the pair that comes to mind is one with a fitted shirt underneath. However, Honoka’s choice for a puffy turtleneck gives the combination a softer, cosier appearance. The way the sleeves go past her wrists also adds that extra kawaii (cute) appeal to the entire look.
Button-down shirt dress
Casual J-fashion is known to mix modesty with charming elements and Honoka’s button-down shirt dress has both. It’s simple, doesn’t show much skin, and has small floral accents that give it a prairie girl look. We can definitely see ourselves wearing this outfit too.
