Here are two stylish beauty college students that we photographed in Harajuku. The cute girl on the left with an auburn bob is 19-year-old Ruri. She’s wearing a denim vest from a Tokyo shop named Santa Monica, a cotton calico blouse from Pageboy and an ethnic-inspired skirt with an embroidered border from Crisp. Her outfit also includes black tights and cool vintage lace-up boots from Popo, a Shimokitazawa used/resale shop.

Ruri’s accessories from Beams Boy include a bracelet with delicate charms and a gold hair band. Her oversize leather bag is from a Koenji used/resale shop.

The cool guy on the right with glasses is Nagashi, who’s 20. He’s wearing Dickies shorts with a t-shirt that carries the message “I Don’t Like Mondays” (a possible reference to a 1970s song by the Boomtown Rats). His leather topsider shoes are from Timberland and his canvas duffel bag is from Inpaichthys Kerri. He’s also wearing a Casio watch.

When we asked the couple about their favorite places to shop, Ruri told us she likes Crisp and Shimokitazawa Popo. Nagashi likes New York Joe. He also told us that his favorite music is by Blue Hearts.

  1. love both the looks and outfits. here’s my burning question for japanese fashionistas and regular ladies alike: how do you manage all the tights and layers in the Tokyo summer heat?

  2. You both look great, not just your outfits :)
    By the way, 私も 月曜日が すきじゃ ありません。

    “love both the looks and outfits. here’s my burning question for japanese fashionistas and regular ladies alike: how do you manage all the tights and layers in the Tokyo summer heat?”

    This is what I’d love to know too. Is it just so, that you’ll endure anything for the style? 20 degrees Celsius where I live, and I already feel like I should go naked…

  4. They have a nice choice in clothing. I really like her shoes.
    @Charlie; I wear flannel in summer, from time to time and if you really want to wear an outfit that’s on your mind, you’ll suck it up and enjoy being darling. ;D

  5. i want the guy’s shirt and the girl’s skirt!

  6. They look like really cool people to hang out with ^-^

  7. @Charlie it’s really easy to live with the heat.
    I really like the dolly kei/ morigirl – fashion style and somehow try to manage it. I love this style to the extent of not caring about the heat. I just do anything to wear my favourite clothes (a list without T-shirts or shorts)
    Well, in fact I just don’t like all those short clothes and low cut dresses/shirts teenagers wear nowadays. I just prefer nice cardigans/sweaters and stuff. Yes, mostly when I’m at home in summer I just wear T-shirts like others but when I go out I always make sure I have something to cover most of my arms or legs. :D

  8. Ah, the guy resembles a bit Tanaka Koki! :D love his outfit, I want that kind of t-shirt too!! \(^o^)/\(^o^)/
