Effortless Tokyo style

Plan your summer wardrobe with looks inspired by Japanese street fashion, and it couldn’t get more legit than with Miss Japan 2008 Hiroko Mima as model


Sportin’ it


Sporty doesn’t always have to mean trainers. Upgrade the look when you don these nude killer heels, tights and a girly numbered tee, and finish off with a varsity jacket.

Check mate


It takes a certain sophistication to mix pieces with bold and fine prints, without making them clash. Accessorize this very cosmopolitan look with a pair of short pointed-toe heeled pumps.

Off the runway


Even if everything is covered up, there’s something sexy about this look.

Put on a balloon skirt and a loose print top, finish off with killer sandals, and you get a laid-back look that is both chic and feminine.

All set

It’s easy to pull off a black and white ensemble, but it’s nice to add a touch of character, like this lace black jacket over an airy dress shirt with appliqué. Finish off with a pair of black tights with subtle details and brown platform sandals.
