When it comes to street fashion, Tokyo is on the cutting edge. The styles that you see on the streets are ever-changing, often incorporating an eclectic mix of different styles in new and unique ways that you won’t see anywhere else.  Because fashion changes so quickly in this environment, it is almost impossible to keep up with. You have to be on the lookout for new photos of the Tokyo street fashion scene constantly to know what is happening on the ground.


How to Spot the Latest Trends in Tokyo


Even if you live in Tokyo, it can be hard to keep up with all of the changes. Spotting trends takes a carefully trained eye and requires a lot of time. This is where online photos can help.


There are some different websites on the Internet that are devoted to capturing fashion photos from the streets of Tokyo. These photos are then organized into collections where you can browse the latest looks. It is a fantastic way to get ideas and inspiration for how you can bring the fashion of Tokyo’s streets into your wardrobe.


While some of the styles may be a little too wild for everyday wear, you can still use them to influence your outfits. For example, if brightly colored pants in crazy prints are all the rage, you can tone it down a bit for everyday life by choosing colorful printed pants with a more subtle print that is slightly more wearable.


Likewise, if everyone is sporting full heads of purple hair, you can use that as inspiration and add a small purple highlight to your hair. For many, it is about toning down some of the more extreme fashions that they see on the street to make them more wearable in everyday life.


On the other hand, if you like to make a statement with your hair, clothing or accessories, you can just copy the street styles directly.  After all, who says that a dress covered in cupcakes paired with knee-high socks and platform boots is too much for everyday wear?


In a way, some of the crazy styles that you see in Tokyo are a bit like having Halloween every day. If you love to dress up, this can be the perfect way to express your unique style.  Don’t hesitate to play around with makeup, either. In Tokyo, makeup can range from brightly colored eye shadow to full face paint, depending on the look that the person is trying to achieve. In general, however, the more extreme, the better it is when it comes to street style.


If you are feeling adventurous, you can even try wearing a colorful wig. This pumps up the drama of your outfit without the long-term commitment of dying your hair.


Taking fashion inspiration from Tokyo street style can be a fun way to change up your wardrobe. Whether you want to play it safe by toning down some of the more extreme styles, or really want to make a statement with your look, browsing online photos from the streets of Tokyo can give you some great ideas to incorporate into your look.
