Happy Fall/Winter 2016!

I hope everyone has been fairly well, despite some surprising developments that you may have noticed in the US. I've been enjoying my third year of college very much. And I am excited about the fall/winter 2016 trends in LARME. Here are a couple of my recent outfits!

Outfit #1


Camisole: WEGO
Turtleneck: Forever 21
Skirt: WEGO
Boots: Spylovebuy
Bag: WEGO

I think I am in love with the leopard print trend. This is surprising to me because I used to vehemently oppose leopard print--even to the extent of teasing my friends who love it. (Scott, if you are reading this, I'm sorry!) But when styled appropriately, leopard print has a classic, elegant, and mature vibe. The Tokyo-based model Tiffany Cadillac has a good post on her blog about the history of leopard print. It's worth checking out!

I am enjoying the trend of sock-style and/or platform ankle boots. I also love the Fall/Winter 2016 emphasis on maxi-style bottoms. ♥ The layered camisole trend is becoming quite mainstream--I've noticed it in Western fast fashion catalogues as well.

And of course, F/W LARME fashion is all about mixing textures. :)  

Outfit #2



Top: Katie the Store
Skirt: Bubbles
Shoes: Spylovebuy
Bag: Honey mi Honey
Hair pin: WEGO


This outfit was in part inspired by one of Yui Kanno's outfits on MERY. The army green/olive green fall color trend is still going strong in both Japanese and Western fashions. I personally love it. Even I get tired of the typical black x pink x white palette at times, haha. 

I caved in and bought the Honey mi Honey tote that came with the November issue of ViVi after seeing so many LARME fans get it. I bought mine separately from the magazine secondhand for about $4 on Fril. I quickly discovered that it's the perfect size for carrying folders of homework. ^^

Thank you for reading my outfit post! Until next time~ ^^

  1. Those outfits are so cute! I totally agree on the leopard print though. At first I hated it but seeing it styled in a classy and elegant way, I started to appreciate this trend so much more!♥︎

    1. I'm glad you like them! ^^
      Haha yeah, I can't stop wearing leopard print now.
      I think leopard print tended to be styled in a tacky or over-the-top way in popular fashion until recently. I'm excited that the more toned-down and elegant look is coming back! :)
