The Tokyo Trend Report | Spring/Summer Trends from mina June 2015

We’re on the cusp of summer now, which means it’s time to turn a page, fashion-wise. For some inspiration, here are seven trends spotted in the June 2015 issue of mina, one of the most popular Japanese fashion magazines for girly-casual style.

Pastel Color Bottoms
Little evokes the colorful yet gentle atmosphere of the period between spring and summer like pastel colors. Pastel bottoms are particularly recommended, and they can be paired with basic colors for a simple but put-together outfit with just enough oomph.


Fruit & Animal Prints
Add some playful flair to your outfit by incorporating fruit or animal prints! Match your fruit/animal print piece with solid colors for an inspired look that’s adorably quirky and a bit grown-up all at once.


Bold Color Sneakers
Sneakers as a statement piece? It can be done. An eye-catching splash of color on your feet can make your outfit go from ordinary to extraordinary. For a fun and distinctive look, pair the sneakers with a more feminine piece like an A-line skirt.


Shirtdresses
For a relaxed and feminine silhouette, go for a shirtdress or T-shirt dress. Pair the dress with unexpected accessories like a knit hat, a tiny shoulder purse or a backpack for a look that packs a punch.

Windbreakers
Sporty pieces are on-trend this year, so incorporate some activewear into your outfit with a seasonal windbreaker! Throw the windbreaker over something girlish like a mini dress for a get-up with surprising contrast.


Lace Details
Add a graceful touch to an otherwise casual outfit with lace details or small lace accessories. For maximum girly-casual impact, incorporate lace in more understated ways, such as on footwear or hemlines.
