Translation – Mina April 2015 , Masuda Takahisa – “Massu Styling” Volume 7

massu-styilg-volume-7This month’s theme is “Wearing white in Spring”


Typically a black and white base is common, but in contrast this was my first time being told to go with white and I wasn’t sure what to do.

The result was not all over white, but I thought that warming it up a bit by paring it with some brown would be good. I paired a long white shirt with a mesh top with goat hair as the focal point, and the bottoms are SISE flower print shorts. The pants and the shirt’s “Haramaki” 1 like design I have also been into recently. Besides the top, the shorts, hat, and sneakers I styled all brown. I really wanted the sneakers to be brown, but it ended up being beige instead. It’s a new item, but it really is my personal item…. LOL I think that this styling came out really well and I am very satisfied, but what do you guys think?

For styling white for a lady, I think wearing a long blouse is nice. I think wearing a long blouse like an outerwear is really fashionable. Kind of off topic (*while looking a the staff*) but a girl swing a button back a shirt that was about to come off is really nice. I am totally caught by that~…..!

Speaking of today’s styling, since the start of this column this is one took me the longest time putting it together and deciding what to do, but it was the fastest photo-shoot. It was totally done in an instant! LOL But, I will do my best next time as well!


Translator’s notes:

1- Haramaki is referring to a thing that you wear around your stomach in Japan to keep warm during the winter. Click here to see what it is.

*Disclaimer* I am still actively learning Japanese and this translation is not perfect. This translation is as direct of a translation as I can make it and I took some liberties as a native English speaker to make it flow better in English, as some things don’t translate well into English from Japanese.
