Following a specific fashion trend can be a bit expensive. You’ll have to buy new items and accessories depending on what’s in and what’s hot in the current trend. Not everyone has a lot of money to spend on clothes and accessories, so if you want to follow the current fashion trends, you must learn to improvise and make your own.
Luckily, Japanese fashion trends are easy to follow. You can even make your own Japanese fashion clothing that follows the trend without having to spend a lot. All you need is to gather your creative juices and be resourceful. Why not rummage your closet (and your house) to look for items that you can upcycle and restyle?
For example, do you know that you can make a cute scarf out of an old t-shirt? You can also turn your old pair of jeans (or pants) into a cute little skirt. There are a lot of instructions that you can find online. You just have to be patient and restyling your clothes can take a bit of time. However, once you’re done, you would surely feel like you’ve accomplished a lot. Plus you’ll have something cute and fashionable to wear.
You can also go thrifting. Thrifting is when you go to a second-hand shop and look for items that look good. Not all second-hand items are still good to wear, so you have to spend a lot of time in the shop and plan your trip. It would also be better if you know what you want, so you can easily look for it.
You can never go wrong when you mix and match the items that you have in your closet to create an entirely new outfit. Always remember that you need to have a main “attraction” in your outfit. For example, you have a brightly colored top. In order for your other clothes not to clash with your top, choose neutral colored pants or tights, and some neutral colored accessories. There’s nothing wrong in mixing prints, but make sure that you wouldn’t look horrible. But you don’t have to worry too much. Japanese fashion clothing and trends allow colors and prints to clash beautifully with each other.
Finally, don’t forget to accessorize. You can always add embellishments to your basic items. Add some studs or spikes to your plain colored tops or bottoms. Sew on some lace, ribbons or bows to add a more feminine touch to your dresses. Add some glitter to your pumps for a sophisticated (yet inexpensive) way to be fashionable.
There are a lot you can do to follow the latest fashion trends. Making your own Japanese fashion clothes can be fun and exciting. So be imaginative and crank up your imagination.
