Japanese Ladies Fashion in Shizuoka 30: Formal or Casual at a Function?

Looking and following fashion for the pur fun of it is of course one thing, but the most problematic moment for a lady (and for a gentleman) is when you have to attend a function/party/business meeting and what else when you ought to be more reserved in your appearance.

The picture above was taken in a big display window mainly selling KENZO brand who also caual and semi-formal laies wear in Shizuoka City!

Notice that the colors white and black are almost universally used in such cases in Japan when it is not completely black.
Lines are sober but still elegant, although the model on the left is a bit too formal for my personal taste!

  1. I like it a lot! (Although not exactly my style). Personally I would love to have something by Issey Miyake (you know the famous pleats?).

      1. It’s funny because there are lots of his clothes on internet… Maybe I should visit vintage, second hand shops! (One more place of the visiting list!).
