I used toÂ love flipping through Japanese fashion magazine to get inspirations when I was younger.Â They’reÂ always soÂ refreshing!Â When they’re not the loudest, they’re the the most creative and the most coordinated.Â I mean, you can always spot a Japanese woman on the street by her most impeccable dress sense and perfect style.Â Â
Anyway, IÂ found some lovely designer classy smart casual wear onÂ the website of Onward Kashiyama and thought I’ll feature them here.Â I love these outfitsÂ for their simple cuttings and intricate details.Â Check out those pretty hemlines!Â So contemporary and feminine!
I can see these outfits on a Japanese woman who is in her 20s,Â 30s and even early 40s!Â And of course it helps that most Japanese ladies never grow fat and have lovely complexion.
Well, if you’re inspired by these pieces, take a look at their 2008 Spring & Summer Collection here:
I think there’s something to be learnt from the Japanese on how toÂ put together that impeccable coordinated style and look real smart even when it comes to casual wear.
