Asian anime culture is one of the world’s most popular and influential cultures in fashion. Here are some trends you can expect from anime-inspired clothes, as well as how to wear them!
Latest Trends in Anime
The latest trend in anime is “Kawaii” or “cute”. Kawaii-style clothing translates into pastel colors with a lot of lace, bows, and frills. Korean brands Uniqlo and H&M have both released kawaii collections for their stores.
An anime trend for women is “Gothic lolita”. This style of anime fashion encompasses Victorian-inspired clothes in a more traditional anime art style. Brands like Alice and the Pirates specialize in clothing from this genre.
Anime has also influenced streetwear, with brands such as Supreme releasing anime apparel for their stores. One example is anime-inspired Nike sneakers, with anime-style designs on the laces.
Where to Wear Anime Fashion
Where to wear anime fashion? Anime clothing is perfect for a day at the office or going out after work! A full suit and tie in an anime style can help you stand out from your coworkers. For girls, try adding a few bows and frills to your professional attire to add some anime flair!
For guys, try a button-down shirt with anime ties. Also, anime-inspired sneakers are perfect for a day at the office.
Casual anime clothing is also great for anime conventions! Browse through anime vendors at the convention to find new clothes.
In our opinion, best dressed anime characters are:
– Haruhi Suzumiya from anime series “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”
– L, the main character in anime series “L Lawliet”
– Akame from anime series “Akame Ga Kill!”
We recommend checking out Tokyo in Tulsa (TIT). TICT is a yearly anime convention that takes place at the Tulsa Convention Center.
