The possible implications of ladies’ fashion in Tokyo.
Tokyo lady style: let’s discuss.
I saw the following on the streets of Tokyo.
Tokyo lady style is more “Little Bo Peep” than grown woman and I don’t like it. “Little girl style” reigns here and many adult females actively try to look half their age. I’m of two minds about this. Yes, us ladies should be able to dress any which way we like, and yes, pastel colours, pigtails, knee socks, and Mary Janes are cute. But what is the impact of this continued infantilization of women in a country that already struggles with female subjugation? (Read up on the “Maid Cafe” phenomenon to see what I mean.)
Rabble rousing feminist I am not, but I’d be lying if I said the style of dress here didn’t bother me.
Thoughts? Am I being too harsh?
