Tokyo Fashion: Boundary Pushing Tokyo

Its time to broaden your horizons, literally. Many say that travel broadens our mind. And if you have spent seven million hours in a que, waiting on a delayed Ryanair flight, then you will grasp the mind altering effects seeing the world can actually have. They say going abroad can also help jump start your own style too. See what I did there? It wasn’t funny was it? Comical stereotypes aside, heading off to some of the worlds most stylish cities can help you gain some sweet wardrobe moves that you wouldn’t have learnt from your couch while watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And with only a few holiday a year, there is not a lot of time for the amount of ground you should be covering.   Some say, when it comes to style, that the western standards are fairly restrictive. Would you agree or disagree? I feel like that’s an article for another day. However, over towards the east it seems that Tokyo has a reputation where, well, anything goes. Then again, you have to look at the population. This is one of the most densely populated capitals in the world. How else are men supposed to stand out from the crowd? Every time you push the boat out with an outfit there are going to be pitfalls. Those Polaroids that you will look back at in a couple of years where you are plastered in eyeliner while wearing a jacket that is safety pinned together will testify to that. However, it is that feeling you get when you nail an out there outfit that makes it all worth it.   Take a look on the eastern side by mixing up those boundary pushers with classic pieces. I’m talking about dramatic and oversized silhouettes and those prints that will bring traffic to a halt. The eastern wardrobe is made up of both iconic and innovative pieces. Pieces that are ideal for building an outfit and pieces that without a doubt, will get you noticed.
