So a while ago me and Emi Marie were talking about being able to achieve a stylish gyaru look with cheap western clothing and she came up with the brilliant idea to do this post. Some of you may wonder were I get my stuff and how I can afford gyaru when I'm a college student and all. So I collected 3 of my coordinates that I'm pleased with and that I know I didn't wear almost anything Japanese and made a list on where I bought it and how much it cost. The prices are in Euro because I know I have many international readers
I wanted to make this post to show those of you who may be a bit scared of trying gyaru style out because of the expenses that it's possible to coordinate with the clothes you find at the local cheap clothing store. In my opinion you can dress in gyaru style without having to buy the Japanese gyaru brands. Usually I wear only Swedish brands or combine them with things I bought in Japan. The prices are in Euro because I know I have many international readers so the price isn't totally accurate.
I wore this one day in Stockholm.
Hat: Åhléns (Swedish store chain)
Knit: Nelly.com (Swedish online store)
Shorts: Cubus (Norwegian store chain)
Over-knee socks: Åhléns
Shoes: Monki (Swedish store chain store)
I wore this in February so it's for colder weather.
Beanie: Cubus (Norwegian store chain)
Faux fur vest: Tradera.se (Swedish auction site)
Shirt dress: H&M
Jeans: Cheap Monday (Swedish brand)
Fringe boots: Random local store
I wore this on a meet-up in Stockholm.
Top: Bik Bok (Norwegian store chain)
Necklace: I am (local store)
Jeans: Self-ripped second hand
Total: 34,5 €
The last one was VERY cheap! And it's currently the outfit I'm most please with!
What do you think about wearing cheap non-gyaru-items and make it gyaru?
Is it possible?
