Harajuku + Omotesando Fashion Check
I haven’t done a fashion check and to be quite honest, there’s been a distinct lack of absolute trends for the last two summers. The above average heat doesn’t help either, people dress as little and as lightly as possible, and in simple, easily washable airy garments. These have been the summer of the cheap wear once throw away fashion chain stores, like H&M and the domestic Uniqlo, as well as the usual suspects. From what I hear people are aiming for cheaper and simple clothes, cuts and colors. The only thing that you see more of this summer than last are hats, to protect against the harsh sun. Even make up is lighter than usual and practically everyone is wearing sandals these days, in Tokyo’s hip Harajuku and Omotesando districts. I took these photos right in front of my favorite Harajuku building, the only one in the area with real character! More fashion checks to come!
