9 Secrets to Dressing like a Japanese Girl
Japanese girls have the most amazing street fashion sense. They dress to make a statement and to express their individuality! Their style is so on-point that scores of American celebrities have been influenced by their style including Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj to name a few. Here are some secrets to getting that Japanese Girl Style!
Secret 1: Accessorize!
But not just in the traditional sense (although you should do that too). Use edgy lingerie inspired pieces to amp up an ordinary outfit.

Secret 2: Platform Shoes
Platform shoes can give any ensemble an edgier feel and they make you taller – double win! Pair them with an upscale outfit — to get that high-low contrast that Japanese girls love.

Secret 3: Knee High Socks
Thigh-his are not just for lingerie or a slutty school girl look. Japanese style influencers pair them with a casual ensemble and those platform shoes for a hip urban feel.
Secret #4 Throw in some schoolgirl flair
See a pattern here? Pairing a schoolgirl outfit with thigh high socks might be too much but with that harness accessory and high midriff showing top you get that Japanese street feel.
Secret #5 Don’t be afraid of a little (OR A LOT!) of color!
Love that black and white but sometimes it can be so boring. Amp up your Japanese look with every color in the rainbow!
Secret #6 Creative Layering
Printed tights worn under shorts create a Japanese look that can work for the spring or fall!
Secret #7 Black Leather Jacket
Leather jackets aren’t just for punk rockers! Make sure that your leather jacket stands out with studs, detailing or cut-outs.
