Japan: how to wear SKIRTS

The weather's getting colder and the sweaters are appearing, but! skirts of all lengths are still being worn-- in Japan :)

First is the slightly-above-the-knee skirt that are usually puffy or ruffly and sometimes worn high-waisted
Combinations with these skirts:
  • skirt + rock/band tshirts + baggy knit cardigan OR baggy denim shirt
  • skirt + cut-off T's OR long-sleeved cut-off shirts
  • skirt + baggy crewneck sweater
common shoes would be booties (thick-heeled!) + ankle socks
Another very common one is the maxi skirt 

  • skirt + tucked-in tshirt OR blouse
  • skirt + tan/creme/etc colored flowy tank (cut-off is even better) + matching flowy vest in brown
  • skirt + baggy sweater
  • skirt + cut-off shirt (long or short-sleeved)

common shoes are booties (thick heeled!)

Short skirts, especially  pencil skirts, are also worn and in-style (you see this a lot in S. Korea too~) You can wear them with rock/band tshirts (trending!) or cut-off shirts or tucked-in shirts or baggy tshirts ...

And here are just a few pictures of how these skirts are worn~

Another popular type of skirt is the
see-through ones with the shorts underneath
