Wearing Harajuku and Lolita Style in Tokyo

Do you want to look like a Victorian porcelain doll??



Strange as it seems, there are Harajuku, Ganguro , Lolita, and Punk, fashion styles many of this found in Tokio streets and in Japan in general. To explain all this looks can be difficult, I’ll just present the particular elements of this subcultural but important fashion trend.

Harajuku: Named for the Harajuku Station and Jingu Bashi pedestrian bridge connecting the Harajuku district with the Meiji Shrine and the Yoyogi Park in Tokio. This are pleases where you will find teens meeting, dressed in this unique style. Also in Osaka is a much seen trend among  teenagers.

This trend is formed by different looks from ” Gothic Lolita ” to “Punky Modern”. This fashion is slowly spreading outside Japan with great influence.

Elements for dressing Harajuku: Lots of layers, sweaters jackets and vests, over blouses and T-Shirts, dresses over leggings, accessorize with bright colors, theatrical make-up and hairstyle. Best of all, get inspired!

Ganguru: Lot‘s of color and lot’s of tanned make-up and blond hair!


Visual Kei: Great influence in this style. With heavy makeup as the Rock Music Band’s style dressing.

Most of this trend is called ” Lolita”  with it’s different styles…here they are listed.

Gothic : Elegant Victorian style clothes: Knee length elaborate dresses with crinolines under and head- bands.   Elegant Gothic Aristocrat with longer elaborate dresses and refined style. With ….listen… doll like contact lenses, yeap.



Sweet : Is a Victorian style combined with Rococo. Something like Alice in Wonderland.


Classic : Also Rococo but much mature.


Punk : Influenced by London punk but with a Japanese twist.


Wa and Qi : Wa Lolita uses traditional Japanese clothes, modified Kimonos to fit common Lolita style, creating floral crinoline skirts and blouses. Qi Lolita uses Chinese traditional clothes modified.


Oji or Kodona: Is a boy style taken from Victorian dressing for boys and men, some girls also use this style with shirts, trousers, top hats, generally color black dominating.


Hime : Princess or European Aristocratic style.


Guro : Broken doll style mostly dressed in white to exalt the blood over the dress and blood like makeup used  as a more theatrical injured appearance (I just prefer the clean like doll look mostly in white).


Sailor : With stripes on blouses, ties and hats.


:)When following all this Lolita style try to get it cute (not sexy, it’s not the intention…well) with lots of accessories colors and original fun!!
