Fairy Kei

29.1.13

Fairy Kei is a street fashion from Japan. It can be described as Kawaii style meets 80s pop. Fairy kei fashion features rainbows of pastel colors, bright bows, and supercute accessories. Japanese fashion brands popular with fairy kei girls include 6%DOKIDOKI, Nile Perch, Spank!, and ManiaQ. In addition to the established brands, young Japanese designers also contribute their creativity to the Harajuku fairy kei scene. Two of these up-and-coming designers are Moco & Tomo, founders of the indie fairy kei fashion brands Strawberry Planet and Mello.
9 Tips on How to Be Fairy Kei
1. Colors. A basic Fairy Kei outfit uses a variety of pastel colors. However neon & darker colors can be incorporated in the outfit

2. Get a poofy skirt. Tutus & Petticoats are the popular choice but you don't have to wear only those options! Ruffly skirts, plain cutoff denim skirts, patterned or plain miniskirts, colorful shorts, gauzy skirts, lacy skirts, overalls, etc.

3. Add your 80's twist. Whether it be converse shoes, scrunchies, famous 80's characters like Care Bears or My Little Pony, fanny packs or even leggings. Always remember about adding an 80's twist.

4. Add cute accessories, but not too many decorative levels. Cute hair bow, cute hair clips in fun colors, thick headbands, skinny headbands, cool eighties caps, etc.

5. Style the hair. Hair can really be any style, but cutesy, childish hair is best. Maybe with a bow.

6. Use leggings, socks or tights: Opt for some bright colored leggings, cute ankle socks or some simple colored tights. Maybe add small neutral colors like black or white. Remember legwarmers? Those are an option too!

7. Add shoes. Converse are very popular in this style but there are many other options. Bright colored high top sneakers, Dr. Martens, pop colored heels and even UGGs can work with this style!

8. Listen to music. The best part of Fairy Kei is the music. Popular choices are Riot Grrrl, Electroclash, 80's Pop icons such as Cindy Lauper, Madonna & Blondie just to name a few & of course Japan does have some underground bands & artists such as PEEP4U

9. Check 80's cartoons for ideas. 80's cartoons, like Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Care Bears, Rainbow Brite, Barbie, The Smurfs & Disney characters are very popular with Fairy Kei.

  11. I love this style. I was a kid in the 80's so it's really nostalgic for me (I think I should try dressing fairy kei, as I have a proper knowledge about the 80's characters and pop culture ;))
    Nice post :))
