Hot in Harajuku: Bangin’ Looks From the August FRUiTS Issue

by Erina Davidson

Thanks to FRUiTS, the world can keep up with what the ladies of Harajuku, Tokyo are strutting in on a daily basis. The monthly street style magazine has been snapping shots since the mid 90s, and the August issue is filled with the usual volume of fresh and fearless fashion. These girls will wear whatever they want, whenever they want, and they don’t mind if you do a double-take or two. Here are some of the looks featured in the current issue:

Yo Nicki, this is what a real Harajuku Barbie looks like. With her Harajuku Ken.

If I looked this good wearing a Muppet baby hat and Jack Skellington harem pants, I’d also get creepy once-overs from bucket hat-wearing, bearded convenience store goers.

The sweater, the pants, the perfectly-placed cartilage piercing. This girl is autumnal perfection. 
And look, she doesn’t even care if you like her outfit.

I don’t need to explain myself, do I?

Questionable pigtails, but she masters the art of accessorizing – peep the army man necklace and the skeleton tights. Makes me want to get my craft on.

She may have just gotten off the Baby Doll Express from Disney-Anime-Wonderland, but the pastel colors are poppin’ with her bleach blond hair.
