Most people know Sakura Miyawaki from Mnet’s reality competition show Produce 48, and having placed second, Sakura is now busy promoting as a member of IZ*ONE. However, she actually debuted in Japan back in 2011 as part of the first HKT48 generation. Not limited to being an idol, Sakura is also an actress – she played the lead role in AKB48’s drama Majisuka Gakuen 4 in 2015 and in the miniseries Crow’s Blood the following year.
It might still be a bit chilly out there, but trust me, spring is just around the corner! Although Sakura’s offstage wardrobe is a mix of preppy and casual sporty pieces, I’m mixing it up with a more elegant silhouette featuring rich earthy tones to match her sweet personality.
I love styling patterns on patterns during spring to emulate the lush beauty of nature. For Sakura’s look, I layered three different patterned pieces together. It might seem like something only maximalists do but minimalists can do it too! The trick is to have the pieces share similar attributes.
Since the singer’s favorite drink is green tea latte, I made green the dominant color. Also, I personally can’t consider it a spring look without shades of green! The vintage color of the flowy midi skirt complements the lace top’s mint green hue while the pink sheer base brings in the repetitive pattern of the skirt and the floral elements of the lace.
Sakura’s fans would know that her official color is pastel pink and I’ve already styled her with a muted shade for her long-sleeve base. For a more vibrant shade, I’ve chosen comfortable pink furry platforms. She’s often seen wearing sporty, chunky platforms but these ones are perfect for the weather with their soft and warm fabric!
Caps are another common item in Sakura’s wardrobe whether it’s onstage or offstage. I’ve chosen a warm brown newsboy cap to bring in the earthy tones of spring and to match her bag.
Sakura is often snapped carrying a minimal tote on-the-go, and this brown corduroy bag wouldn’t be amiss in her usual airport look. I’ve attached pink and white enamel cherry blossom brooches at the bottom corner of the bag for a cute touch. Call me cliché but did you really expect me NOT to put sakuras on Sakura’s outfit?
