Get worldly with these fashion trends from Japan

Sure, you can get plenty of fashion inspiration right here in the USA, but have you ever thought about looking at the trends of Japan?

This fashion-forward country has been a source of trends for several decades, so why not be ahead of the crowd and take a stab at a few of these fads?

Cat fashion
No, we're not recommending you start collecting your cat's hair to create an actual sweater or anything like that. In Japan, many people channel this animal with cat-themed shoes, or even cat-like stripes for your socks, pants or shirt! If you're crafty (or a great treasure hunter), you might be able to create your own one-of-a-kind creation from a piece of used clothing. To finish off your look, be sure to wear your eyeliner in the cat-eye fashion!

Gothic Lolita
This very specific trend from Japan takes its cues from the Victorian era, just with a few dark undertones. Full skirts with plenty of tulle, form-fitting button-down tops and high boots and socks are all staples of this fashion wave.
