2012- spring trends in Japan

I read some Japanese fashion magazines (2012 April) in the hair salon yesterday, and found some styles very flattering. Would like to share them here.

#1. long (pleated) skirts

Similar long (pleated) skirts can be easily found in Zara (with different length or asymmetrical hem), Anthropologie, BCBG and designer collections (like this).

#2 mid/short skirt or dress

Personally I like short skirts and dresses better. #2-1&3, are great for younger girls (does #2-1 look like Juicy Couture?).

#3 cropped pants or shorts

I like to copy the #3-4, sweater, shorts and bootie look!
