“Kawaii” or cute fashion is a trend that started in Japan and has now spread all over the world. It is particularly popular with younger girls. This trend is characterized with cute accessories, colourful dresses, stuffed toys and oversized bags usually featuring anime characters.
If you are trying to get into the trend but is afraid to look childish, then you can stick to the pastel colored dresses and accessories. You can also try to wear accessories and oversized bags, but make sure that your outfit is fit for the occasion. You would definitely look ridiculous with a backpack on a formal party.
You can also show your “inner” Japanese kawaii fashion sense by collecting stuffed animals or plush toys featuring your favorite anime characters.
