Japanese ladies have always liked plain and uniform colors, especially black, grey and beige, once they had passed to the age of adults, meaning married or career ladies.
It is not easy to embellish the female body with such requisites and it does require some talent and combinations as a single style or creator is not always the ideal solution!
Yesterday I noticed this outfit in the shop window of my good friend’s boutique, Floraison, in Shizuoka City.
I was intrigued and enquired with the staff whpo are also good friends!
The top is actually a combination of two, the first layer a top by Original and the second layer a top by MUVEIL.
Note the slight difference in color!
Note the ribbon of a different color on the second layer top. A good idea as it will conceal the bulge of an eventual bra.
The summer hat is by Athena NY.
The thin shortish lighter grey denim pants by MUVEIL nicely accentuate the line and length of the legs with a great last touch with high heeled shoes by PURA LOPEZ! The pants are typically trussed up as it is the prevalent fashion. Mind you, you can unfurl them depending on the shoes!
