PopSister: Dressing Mode with Military, Nordic, Rock and British styles with H&M
Universal Doll in this spread?
If you haven't read PopSister before, it's the Shibuhara (mix of Shibuya and high-fashion Harajuku trendy fashions) counterpart of Popteen, and I'm sure you recognize the lovely Tsubasa on the cover. This style is great for Western gals because the Harajuku style element brings in a lot of Western brands like H&M, Forever 21, GAP and Abercrombie & Fitch.
So yes, it's totally possible to make these clothes fit right for gyaru. Don't let people tell you otherwise. Also remember, Japanese prices for Western clothes are really inflated, so they will be much cheaper in your home countries! Fashion in Western countries is great now especially now so that we're not behind of Japanese fashion anymore. We started catching up to them since around 2008-2009, so your local shopping mall will have some of the same styles that gyaru are wearing now. So go out to your local shops and look for perfect pieces to coordinate with the newest trends!
