Musette's Global Style File, 3rd Edition

Musette takes you around the world, spotlighting the countries that have style down pat. Native or not, never be afraid to show a little national pride for your favorite fashion destination.

"Japanese? Yes Please!"

Conquer cuteness as masterfully as the Japanese do in bright colours, fun patterns and fearless pairing. Pick items that would make waves even on the crowded streets of Tokyo, such as sparkly headbands, shiny bubble skirts and statement heels. Have fun with fashion, don't take yourself to seriously, and appreciate the genius that is Japanese style.

Winning Example: Model Tao Okamoto
