Rikako Ōya’s #OOTD (October 2018): The Latest Fashion Trends in Japan

27.October.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES

#OOTD is a featured series here on MMN by fashion-lover Rikako “Ricopin” Ōya’s in which she showcases the latest fashion from Japan. The theme of her 9th entry is ‘Outdoor Mix’ – a new style that combines outdoor clothing with something completely different to add new flavour to the outfit. At the end of the article, Ricopin also delivers her favourite items this month with a personal style of her own.

 

bringing the spice with a fluffy boa

Ricopin is donning a boa jumper―a classic material for outdoor wear―and the blue colour brings out that showiness even more. Combined with a leopard print skirt, this look brings a spicy street mix that’s in right now.

unnatural strip colour combination = mood

This warm and fluffy style has a real outdoor vibe brought out by the fur aviator hat and corduroy jumper skirt. This is layered with a striped multi-coloured knitted top to transform the outfit into a 90’s pop look.

authentic outerwear x one piece = an unexpected matching

Ricopin is enjoying unexpected match between an outdoor boa jacket and stylish one piece. The real surprise player in this look however is the waffle leggings. The trendy purple and mellowness of everything else works to bring the whole look together.

<Ricopin’s Thoughts>

“I wonder, is ‘outdoor’ often thought about as outdoor festival? It felt refreshing working on my personal style [below] because I did a lot of things I’ve never done before! And not just that – rather than changing the whole look I mixed different styles which is fun, isn’t it? It changes your image in a good way. For example, the first outfit with the boa parker. The balance is easy to replicate but the leopard print is very much now. I like it so much I want to add it to my own wardrobe. Wearing a hood is warm too. It’s a balance I want everyone else to try too♡. The third outfit with the stripes and jumper skirt felt like something new, and I’m glad I wore an aviator cap, they’re all the rage this year! The concept of combining a mini one piece and waffle leggings in the third style is super cute. This is the number one style I want to try the most now!”

<Ricopin Interview>

This is a balance I wanted to try: a mini one piece with long boots! I’m all about that 90’s kogyaru balance right now, but it’s something I’ve never done before, so when I thought about what I should wear, I came across this X-girl one piece. The length matches with the boots’ perfectly, and the logo has a mature colour tone that is cute. The waist squeezes, and it also has pockets. I’m a fanatic for it even just wearing it on its own. It’s too wonderful a thing! (laughs) I’m doing autumn this time , so I tried to make it autumn-y and chic by combining with a black hat.
