When you think of or talk about Japan, the general picture that comes to mind is of the past when the women wore their colorful silk kimonos and narrow, long skirts that made them stride slowly and gave them a natural modesty. However, that is something that can relegate strictly to the past since the fashions there are no longer the same, especially when you consider the fashions in a city like Tokyo. That is why, if you are thinking in terms of original and awesome oriental prints to wear to an advantage to be like the people in Tokyo, then you are not on the right track but it is a great idea nevertheless. We are saying this fashion has a new look in Tokyo. To do as the women and girls in Tokyo, are doing in terms of fashion, you will need to know all about patterns so that you can get the mix right. As you may be aware, the girls and women are blessed with ivory complexions, dark straight hair, high cheekbones, slanted black eyes and really petite builds. Which means that anything they wear will make them look really cute and feminine.

We are sure that with these tips and hints and armed with the images we have given here; you can come up with your own versions of the Tokyo street fashion looks.
Made the most of their petite frame: Having a slender and petite frame can be a big blessing as it provides a good frame for most clothing. They have done away with the need to conceal their legs and gone with short outfits that draws our eyes to their lovely legs. But not all their outfits are short as some of them are long and wacky. You will also notice that despite their relatively lesser height than westerners or people from other parts of the world, they do have long legs.
Edgy and bright: They have gone with colors that are edgy and bright to make a point. Their makeup is no longer of the type that is subtle and hardly there. The Tokyo fashion looks do not shy away from bright pinks, blues and greens in clothing as well as makeup. What is more, they have also gone for the edgy look by adding oddly matching but also conflicting layers to their clothing. If you take a careful look, you will find that Tokyo fashion covers everything from top to toe and that is why they have really chunky and colorful shoes as well.
