Hello =3 I know I'm probably going to make two stupid questions and I'm sorry for that! Is there anyway to make a mori girl outfit without going too hard on layering? What about the silhouette, wearing clothes twice your size is mandatory?
It is possible to get the aesthetic without so much layering, but it is still a very important aspect of the style, so you have to tread a fairly careful line. Also, a lot of brands make items that have a kind of faux-layering effect (ie. they make items that make it look like you’re wearing layers when it’s just one skirt or top).
Here are some examples of mori-girls wearing fewer layers:
And here are some of those faux-layering items I mentioned:
As for wearing clothing twice your size, I don’t think that’s necessary at all. In fact, it’s not even totally necessary for you to lose all of your shape. Check out this great outfit that makes use of a belt to define the waist:
Hope that helps! xoxo
I love mori, but I have this problem where the clothes I tend to gravitate to are more like blacks and greys which seem... not so mori. Help?

YES, it is done! And YES it works out super well!
As I wear both styles myself, I can’t prevent mixing them. Steampunk often uses layering for creating outfits, so that fits the mori aesthetic quite well. Also the colour scheme ranging from dark to lighter browns work out well for both: Mori and Steampunk. So mixing both is not that difficult ;)
There’s also a short note about that in the Mori special (Ed. 9) at the online magazine BCM. You can download it free here.
Some examples of mixing both styles from me:
I think Hildekittens outfits often have a (Dark) Mori vibe, so here are some examples from her:
Another (really great) example for mixing are the outfits of Crystaline.
You can find more of her outfits here.
I hope that helped ;)
I know the ideas of mori girl & spring formal/prom may kinda clash, but I was wondering if there's any way to incorporate mori into prom?
Hi ^^ I am from Australia, so I’m not 100% on what is acceptable for prom but here are some ideas:
I think if you are going to try a formal mori-girl style, you should definitely stick to a long skirt. I think something like one of these could work well paired with a cute flower crown and matching shoes ^^ if you go for a white dress, make sure your accessories are colourful (eg. pink or dark brown) so that it doesn’t look too bride-ish.
Or then you could go for a much more traditional mori-girl style like these:
or something more gyaru-ish:
or something more lolita-ish
hope you find what you’re looking for xoxo
My answer: ogsaavidere
First of all: Thank you for a wonderful blog. It gives me a lot of inspiration! And now my question: I live in a place that gets very cold during the winter, and I have to wear thick coats. I always have trouble finding winter coats that goes with the mori style. Do you have any ideas/photos of mori girls dressed for winter? Also, do you have any ideas about how to style an ordinary winter coat into a mori winter coat?
Here are som examples of mori girls dressed for winter:
If you have a plain coat in a natural colour (eg. cream, beige, tan, brown) and are comfortable doing some crafting, there are lots of things you can do to it - eg, add some lace to the collar or pockets, put some trim around the bottom or add floral or gingham fabric to the inside of the hood ^^ As you can see from the above pictures, the toggle-style coats are really popular in mori-girl (and really popular in Japan in general at the moment) so if you can find one of those, I think they’re the best :)
Anonymous asked: Two questions, one suggestion: 1) I apologize in advance if this was already asked. Are there any examples of what to wear with long skirts? 2) What is your opinion on Wonder Rocket? 3) I think tagging posts with ‘dresses’/’short skirts’/’sweaters’/etc would be helpful
#3 first - I have actually been meaning to go through the blog and do some mass-tagging of posts so everything is more organized, I just have to find the time ^^;;;
#2 - I love wonder rocket! I think they are great and the quality is reasonable :)
#1 - You can wear almost anything with a long skirt. Here are some examples:
