Mastering the office dress code is never easy, especially in a city like Tokyo where trends are always on the move. However, the business culture remains traditional, conservative, and sometimes very difficult to gauge. Still, there is an essential to your wardrobe when it comes to business attire: Uniqlo white shirts.
A while ago, we looked at some great ways to style Zara’s signature pencil skirt. This month, we take a look at one of these most common, yet somewhat difficult to “wear it right” wardrobe-essentials.
The “boyish but sophisticated” style is a trend always pushed by popular brands. Uniqlo is proposing the perfect shirts to fit any style in their Uniqlo’s white shirts collection. The worldwide renowned fashion brand offers you every kind of white shirt you need when it comes to business, from all-serious meetings to light lunches in town.
As seen in the promo video above, the white shirt is a staple from Uniqlo’s year-round collection, providing various collections of boyish looks with a simple yet cool feminine twist, the perfect tools to rock the gender-bending shirt fashion.

Winter in Tokyo. Now, as fabulous as that sounds (what with all the nabe, amazake and winter illuminations), many of us would much rather spend now until late March cooped up indoors all day in our faded, worn-out sweatpants.
Resist the siren call of the kotatsu, we say! Even though we totally agree that sweatpants are wonderful in their own way, we also know that winter in Tokyo is a great season for showing off your unique winter style. We’ve rounded up the top seven winter trends inspired by the F/W 2019 fashion runway (as well as what some of your favorite celebrities have been wearing) along with affordable alternatives so that you’ll actually want to go outside.
1. Dark Romance
Think floral print is only for the spring and summer. Wrong! One popular trend seen on the winter 2019 runways was dark, moody florals. Think romantic, feminine silhouettes calling you to the dark side.

Savvy Styling Tip:
Implementing dark floral prints into your wardrobe is easy. You can choose between wearing a long floral dress or opt for a long-sleeved floral blouse. If you want to toughen up the look, pair it with a cool leather jacket, or, alternatively, dress it up with a faux fur coat and statement jewelry for a chic look.
