Images taken from the Spank! Girls Tumblr
I love love love Japanese Street Fashion. Since a friend first showed me the book FRUiTS 7 years ago, I've had a fascination with their labels and style. I became familiar with Spank!, a small Japanese store, after subscribing to Kera...and fell in love. With a penchant for 80's toys, pastels, and polka dots, Spank! is a love letter to childhood. Considering that Japanese clothing is often one size fits all that doesn't fit all, my only way to get the Spank! look is to re-create my own version of their unique style. Here are some points of style to follow if you want to get Spank!ed up.
- Pastel colors mixed with black and white
- Cropped Moto Jacket
- Printed Tights
- Classic Reeboks, Chucks, or Dr Martens
- 80's characters on tees or purses
- Polka Dots or Stripes
- Bows and Hearts
- Denim Mini Skirts
- Short Petticoats
...and most importantly LOTS OF LAYERS!
I definitely want to do an OOTD with my own Spank! look...stay tuned!!
