Tokyo Style: Schoolgirl Chic

November 2nd, 2009


Strolling the streets of Ginza, this young lady is embracing the fun of schoolgirl fashion. What makes her schoolgirl look tick?  Her pigtails, the stuffed animal charms on her lanyard, her lace-trimmed bloomer-style skirt, and her knee-high socks. 

While her schoolgirl chic outfit would be difficult to pull off verbatim back in America, you could work in a single element or two.  For example, pair knee high socks and Mary Janes with a sophisticated pencil skirt and blouse.

    Not my thing but I love how she expressed her own style. That takes some confidence!

    So glad you guys are in the city I’ve called home for the past two years. Yokoso! :-) Tokyo men and women alike are so stylish and hot on the heels of most every trend I read about on omiru. Then again, it’s hard to find a style that doesn’t look good on these slim and trim Japanese girls. Living here and subscribing to this blog have definitely improved my style. Thanks! Hope you enjoy your stay!

    How much longer are you guys going to be over there? If I wanted to see random people dressed up I’d go to the sartorialist…

    Definitely loving the confidence in design and fashion that we’re seeing in Japan.

    Katie – thanks much for the welcome! Living in Tokyo must make for great fashion inspiration – even a quick ride on the metro reveals some pretty great styles. What are some of your favorite places to shop? Would love to hear a local’s take on the best fashion spots.

    Ali – thanks for the tip about
