Some people are just born with a keen fashion sense. Case in point: Coco Pink Princess. She’s just 10 years old but she’s already wearing enviable stylish ensembles that she put together herself. Growing up, Coco would hang out at Funktique, her mum and dad’s clothing store in Harajuku — a district known for its fashionable dwellers. Her parents started Funktique when they relocated to Tokyo after the 2011 earthquake in Fukushima. Coco would play dress up and her mum would document the looks and post them on Instagram. Soon, requests to show more of Coco Pink Princess’ outfits came by the dozen and a dedicated account for Coco was created. Now, her IG account already amassed a strong following of 628K. Impressive, right?
Coco’s looks aren’t typical. They’re eccentric with a touch of maximalism. You’ll find animal prints paired with pastels, all-neon outfits and lots of fluffy jackets. Loving this look? Here are some outfit ideas and style tips to note from Coco Pink Princess.
Elevated tee and shorts ensemble
Everybody loves a comfy tee and shorts ensemble. It’s a staple outfit that suits anyone. However, it can sometimes get boring because it’s formulaic. Coco Pink Princess shows us that you can elevate this basic look with just a few tweaks. Coco picked a red statement tee to go with plain denim shorts and selected socks with stripes that match the colour of her shirt. Then, she added layered necklaces and a statement yellow beanie to add more elements to the outfit. As a finishing touch, she got an oversized belt and styled the excess length to hang downwards instead of securing it through the belt loop — a cute twist that we’re definitely going to try.
Get the look: First, mind the colour contrast. Don’t just put together whatever tee and shorts you have in your closet. Pick pieces that are contrasting to create an interesting colour palette, and get creative with your accessories.
A tee and a maxi look
In case you haven’t noticed, Coco Pink Princess loves her tees. In this number, Coco matched one with a maxi skirt that has a stylish slit. The tiny detail of the slit is what makes this outfit. Without it, the length of the maxi skirt could overwhelm Coco’s stature considering that her tee is also baggy. As for accessories, she did her signature “belt twist” again and wore layered necklaces. But to mix things up, she went for a tie-dye hat and eye-catching fluffy animal print sandals.
Get the look: Petite gals, take note: when going for a loose tee and maxi skirt look, make sure to find a maxi skirt with slit detail.
