I'm trying to start a mori wardrobe, what do you think would be a good starting point? (I.E, x shirts, x skirts/bottoms, x outerwear...) Sorry if this is a stupid question!
I would say decide on the colour palette you want first (say you want all creams and beige or you like green a lot etc.) Once you’ve chosen your focus colour, I would work on getting the basic components of a couple of outfits and choose things that can be layered, mixed and matched and used in multiple ways.
Ideally, I think you should aim to start with:
3 x dresses, 2 x skirts, 3 x blouses, 2 x t-shirts or tops, at least 2 x outwear + a coat if where you live is cold, 2 x shoes and 1 x bag. You should also try to get a lot of different socks and leg-wear plus an assortment of accessories :) Also, if you want to go for a more boy-ish look, you can swap out the skirts and dresses for more tops, a pair of shorts and some pants.
Are short skirts or dresses ok in mori girls? Except for mori gyaru, it seems that mori girls only wear long skirts or mid-length dresses!
Traditionally, mori-girl skirts are knee-length or longer. Because the aesthetic relies heavily on layering and creating a loose silhouette it’s hard to achieve without a longer skirt. Mori-girl is also a very modest style, so showing a lot of skin or leg doesn’t really fit in with it. That said, it can be done if you do it carefully.
Here’s some examples of a mori-kei look with a short skirt (you will not find photos of mori girls in short skirts without some kind of stockings or pants underneath though).

For the girl that wants to dye her hair, I've seen ombré or deep, dark reddish maroon done very beautifully on mori girls.
Oops! ><;; Sorry for not being specific! (Same anon as previously, by the way!) I was thinking something unnatural! Is my best bet going for a pastel hair colour?
I think yes, something pastel or subdue. There are lots of great examples on Shima Hair
My answer: witchknights
For unnatural hair colors, I think that the ones that work better with mori are the ones found in nature: deep, forest green (from grass and leaves), and light shades of pink and lilac, from petals. Or something deep red and coppery, if you like colors that are more related to autumn.
Hey! I'm in love with mori girl fashion and looking to get a new mori-inspired haircut for the spring! I'm aiming for something mid-length that's easy to keep up with. Friends suggested a long bob, but do you have any suggestions?
Please have a look in our hair tag.
And here are some ideas for you:
I want to dye my hair, but I'm scared dyed hair isn't all that 'mori'. Any suggestions on a hair colour that won't take away from my mori girl vibes?
Any natural colours will work well with mori girl (brunette, blond, red, black) . If you’re thinking of an unnatural colour, it may be possible to work it into the style, but to give better advice I’d need to know which colour ^^;;;
Also, I wouldn’t say that dying your hair is un-mori, a lot of mori models have dyed hair and perms.
