Rikako Ōya’s #OOTD – The Latest Fashion Trends in Japan (November 2018)

22.November.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES

#OOTD is a featured series here on MMN by fashion-lover Rikako “Ricopin” Ōya in which she showcases the latest fashion from Japan. The theme of her 10th entry is ‘Trad Style’ fused with school uniform elements. While these outfits are classy they are also nostalgic, calling back to older fashion, and are coordinated with that Ricopin taste. The final outfit in which she serves an outfit made up of her favourite items of the month has a slight air of retro-ness to it.

Everyone has that one bad guy in class. He is Ricopin’s inspiration for this orthodox school look which she fashionably dons with a long T and baggy pants. The sleeve prints and typography on the belt give off an individualistically playful aura.

Ricopin takes the classic trad combo of tilden knitwear and a pleated skirt and spins her own twist on it by incorporating bright blue and leather. The yellow socks are a standout player in this overall chic getup.

<Ricopin’s Thoughts>

“It felt really fresh wearing the trad style with a school uniform look in a cute way! My usual outfits are really rough and loose, but this kind of tight look is precious and makes you hold your head high. Especially the first outfit. I actually want to try wearing that kind of boyish, casual style myself! The usual thing to do is wear a shirt under the fest, but the long T gives it that bad boy look. Plus it went with my hairstyle so I liked it. Although the combination of the pleated skirt and knitwear in the second outfit are the school items the mature look is super cute♡ I also personally like casually adding different colours here and there. The final outfit is a classic girly look. It’s part of my image so it was easy to wear. Also, I’m really into brown right now. My nails are painted that colour so making the inner part of this look brown was a highlight of the outfit♪”

“I love this overall so much I’ve probably posted it so many times on Instagram (laughs). This was actually my first overall I bought. The shape is beautiful and the legs look long, and combining it with the knitted jumper from the same brand makes it the ultimate cute♡ If you’re not careful with overalls you end up looking childish, but having mature elements makes it wonderful, like the high waist design and ribbon on the back. It’s easy to get the balance right and it’ll go with any shoes, but when thinking about the knitwear and my own style I decided to go with platforms♡”
