So these are all hastily-taken pictures from my phone of a Japanese fashion magazine. A super chill guy I work with recently went to Japan over the holidays, and knowing that I’m prone to obsessing over clothes, he kindly brought in a fashion magazine they picked up while there so I could check it out.
Going through it promptly threw a wrench into my work flow of course; I had no choice but to pore over the pages.
What struck me about the styling is that its very accessible in the sense that I can easily replicate these looks with wardrobe basics I already have. There weren’t really editorials per se, just tons of straight-up outfit ideas. My first thought going through it was “ah, these are all PERFECT outfits for work.” The styling is based on very classic wardrobe staples and neutral palettes which I can easily imitate and punch up with colourful accessories.
I thought of work right away because the hem and necklines are office-appropriate, and the styling is polished. I want to be a boss lady, and I want to look the part.
Naturally, I thought it best to share with you all, even if the picture quality isn’t the best. Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the magazine cover, so if you want to go seek out a copy for yourself I’m not sure what this is called. If any of you can read Japanese and know the magazine, feel free to leave it in the comments!
