Rikako Ōya’s #OOTD – The Latest Fashion Trends in Japan (January 2019)

24.January.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

#OOTD is fashion-lover Rikako “Ricopin” Ōya’s featured series on MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON where she exhibits the latest fashion from Japan. This will be the final entry to the long-standing and popular series which has taken place over a year already!

 

Ricopin’s crowning glory theme is a favourite colour (or colours) of hers: rainbow. In the final outfit of the article in which she makes up a look with her favourite items on the month she incorporates red as the main colour, her absolute favourite colour.

 

90’s mix littered with juicy colours

Ricopin stylishly layers yellow, orange and blue in this look which elicits a feeling of freshness and energy. Compact sizing of each item brings the entire outfit together instead of it looking too loud. The half zip sweatshirt and coach jacket gives us that 90’s mood.

playing daring with colours and a men’s-like balance

Combining the street styles of an oversized denim jacket and striped pants gives fresh expression when the jacket is striped and the pants are a bright colour. The white accessories and details also help to bring the entire outfit together.

open a lead with accented colours in a sporty look

Ricopin went on a colourful adventure with the high neck cut and sewn, belt and hood which complement the black down jacket base. The purple pants are surprisingly not overly flashy so even if you add colours it never looks too much. Her shoes are thick-soled to give a nice balance in terms of volume.

<Ricopin’s Thoughts>

“I’ve always liked colour coordination and colourful clothes. Even in my recent outfits I’ve just worn red. My hair is blonde so I wear red clothing I get told I look like [Japanese comedian] Kazlaser [laughs]. But in brightening up I’ve come to enjoy more standout colours than before. I also want to try out blue and green items this year! In winter I’m inclined to wear the same kind of outdoor wear and I tend to go with safe colours in my looks, but when I saw the clothes this time around I saw the light in how much you can play around with colours like this! Whether I’ll be popular in them is another thing entirely [laughs] but I love girls who wear colourful fashion. I feel wearing colours makes you feel more alive. The outfit I personally find to be the easiest to wear is the one with the black down jacket and yellow belt. Accessories add colour so you can change your impression easily, can’t you. My colour recommendation is without question red! Be sure to try colour coordinating yourselves this winter too♡”

Owning the sizing with red as the main player

<Interview>

“This time I used my favourite colour, red, as the main colour! The down jacket is from Little Sunny Bite. This size which is like it’s hugging you is cute and warm and surprisingly goes with anything you combine it with so I’m all about it this year. Generally you’d wear the jacket zipped up with jeans and sneakers but this time I wanted to open the jacket up so I tried balance the volume with white socks and ballet shoes. I see these shoes so much in fashion on the streets and think it’s cute♡ The sweater is striped and is my kind of colourful. I want to carry on challenging myself to more colourful fashion this winter!”
