I LOVE Japanese-inspired clothes, and I find that when Asian, American, Middle Eastern, and European styles are overlaid on top of each other, the effect is astounding! The outfit below is a perfect example of this. This tunic is bright blue with Asian-style prints and wide black edging. The sleeves are cut slightly above the elbow- perfect for the summer (in winter, you can wear a long sleeve top underneath). Worn with skinny jeans, black open-toe vinyl slingback heels, and a black silk scarf that sits atop a tall hairstyle that flows out of the back and front of the scarf, this tunic is a gem!
If you want to see the only other instance of a Japanese-inspired silk manteau I could find so far, it is here!
