On The Street... Mixed Prints, Flea Market

What I liked about this look was that most girls would go with a solid color tee when working with a print skirt. This young lady ,though, has has mixed an angular graphic print tee under her cami/tank but used the color tonality to work back to her dainty floral print skirt. The way she has done it is really very subtle but I love that .

She may be a Japanese tourist or a recent transplant. If you ever go to Tokyo and walk down Harajuku or Omotesando on a weekend you'll be bombarded with chic girls and boys who dress like her. Mixing prints and proportions is the norm there. Almost everyone has a 'look'. I swear you would go nuts. I sat in a cafe' for an hour and couldn't believe this live 'full frontal fashion' show right before my very eyes. Love her look too. It's kinda sweet but not prissy.

Japanese babes have such an eye for subtle, hip-style. I live in an area of Bangkok, known as Little Tokyo (read;high-dollar end of town)and I'm amazed at how they "indeed" have a look. They're masters at taking a few (ordinary)pieces and creating a "wow" factor. I agree with anonymous, I've hung-out in the Ginza in Tokyo...fashion style heaven. Girls and guys both have a strong sense of how to get a "look". It doesn't have to be some ridiculously priced designer piece...give your eye and brain a chance to pull your look together.

She is adorable! And I agree with the above commenters-- I love people watching in Asia-- they pull off blending things that would ordinarily seem risky (or at least to me) and make it perfection.

i agree with everyone else here that asian girl have really good style. i saw some influences of marni though in the shape adn proportios in this outfit. i liked the juxtaposition of the free use of prints/color.

haha..i am an asian gal ( from HK)


i do kinda agree dat asain style, esp tokyo is kinda adorable in their ways. Um...in HK, they hv their own style n generally ppl do care about wt they wear i would say. But sometimes, they care more about brands then the clothes itself, so thats not too good.

But being an chinese, actually i think no matter how an chinese gals dress nicely, seems like they cant pull off the clothes as good as europeans. I wish i hv their faces as well as tall long bodies!!
its just look so different for a nice piece of item on european.

well..anyway,this gal is amazing!

Let's face it: At it's very best, Japan is the Asian aesthetic artistic equivalent of Italy.

Wow, that's some alliteration! :-)

Beauty and taste can often be so infused in the Japanese culture. Think of what artistic care and subtlety comes to the beholder of a beautiful presentation of sushi. Could that possibly be the most artistic presentation of food? (Okay, top ten, then.) Think ikeban. Haiku. The Zen garden. The silk kimono. A whole world in miniature in a bonzai. The Zen tea ceremony.

I enjoy visiting and contributing my two cents to your site, Sart! Kudos.

I can't see the tee very well but agree with Elessa - it's a beautiful skirt, so dainty. Almost apron-like! I like the soft dirndl effect, too. Her waist is so tiny, it's perfect for the dimensions of that skirt.

I love how this is trendy without being...well, 'trendy'. I mean, this could have been disasterous with a superwide belt and a metallic bag. She kept things simple and clean, which is why this works so well.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:18 AM) : 

What's with the automatic assumption that this woman is from Japan or Asia and not an American of Asian descent? For all you know this woman could be born and bred in Queens.

There are plenty of Asian Americans in New York with style. In fact, the Japanese aesthetic has as much influence on them as it does on any other group. So enough with the silly generalizations and waxing poetic on all things Japanese, because in this particular post it's irrevelant.

I'm sure the shirt has the same print as the skirt. The tanktop is a nice touch.

But I really don't like that bag!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:15 PM) : 

to anonymous: having lived in asia too, i would say she is from asia and not asian american. there is just a difference in dressing that one can notice. some things just are harder to explain unless you've experienced them..

I think Karl Lagerfeld said a couple of months ago that he believes Chanel is tailored to fit a smaller, more compact body and also, that the ideal body type for his clothes is the Asian one. It was somewhat disheartening to read the above comment.

Another call to stop essentializing here. Sheesh, and New York is supposed to be "cosmopolitan."

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:27 AM) : 

Not all Europeans have "tall long bodies", and not all Asians have small, compact bodies. I'm eurasian and I got my "tall long" body and broad shoulders from my mum (who's Chinese), my dad is British and he's small and compact.

By the way, this girl looks great!

I do not like very much her style, but I love the skirt she is wearing! This is because I love flowers and is so pretty!
