Japanese girls have the most amazing street fashion sense. They dress to make a statement and to express their individuality!

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.
