Yankii can be seen as Japan’s take on trashy America, with the Yankii community embracing the “bad boy” aesthetic and rebelling against the respectable Japanese ideals of politeness.
Yankiis typically wear customized tracksuits which they couple with an extravagant attitude and a willingness to fight.
"Kegadoru" is a Japanese trend that can be seen in the Harajuku precincts, and it literally translates to "injured idols."
The main component of this fashion trend is bandages and eye patches. The appeal of this style is to look vulnerable and injured while being obvious and even showing it off.
A truly weird trend that sprung up on Instagram, with questionable merits. A saline solution is used to swell up the forehead and with a slight push in the middle, a bagel shape appears. Like in the image below, except with a little donut instead of tiny horns.
The look lasts merely a few hours, but what's more surprising is that this trend first started in Canada, but it's now become big in Japan.
“Sukeban” translates to “boss girl,” and this aesthetic can be seen not only worn as a trendy look but as a way of life.
The trend was mostly adopted by women, sporting an edgy-looking demeanor, alternative clothing customizations, and a whole lot of sass. You don't want to mess with a Sukeban girl!
Sleepy Time Chic
With casual chic becoming more of a thing all over the world, it makes sense that this trend originated in Japan.
With many people wearing their PJs all day, Japan started this streetwear trend as another offshoot of Japanese culture, with oversized pajama bottoms and old tees incorporated for that bedtime look.
