Junk Food in Japan!

Japanese gyaru (meaning "gal") fashion has exploded overseas in the past couple of years, with people looking to the hyper fashionable streets of Shibuya and Harajuku for inspiration. The Shibuya 109 building in Tokyo - with 10 floors of the wildest clothing and accessories imaginable - is the place to be, but there are also a huge number of magazines catering to the gyaru market that will help keep you on trend!
J-List and Amazon Japan offer subscriptions to many popular titles. Egg, Ranzuki, Poshh! and Koakuma Ageha showcase some of the most colourful and extravagant styles to come out of Tokyo.
Unfortunately, many of the brands pictured in these magazines are extremely difficult to find outside of Japan. So when I was flipping through a recent issue of Ageha, I was suprised to spot one of my favourite models Rin looking mega adorable in Junk Food's long sleeve thermal featuring Smurfette!
Team it with some bright leggings, or these Junk Food Strawberry shorts and some knee high tube socks for a cute look!
Oh, and don’t forget to keep your hair and makeup on point! The Cherrypop blog is regularly updated with scans from all the latest gyaru magazines and is a great place to get started.
