Skirt Boys – Lifting Up in Numbers

We talked about “Vegetarian Boys.” And here is something more that’s popular with Japanese boys.

Skirts are not only for girls any more in Japan. There are also boys that wear “Skirts” in trendy cities such as Harajuku and Aoyama.

Boy skirts are not brand new, they have been done by Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivian Westwood, but this fashion is spreading as it gets trendier among today’s Tokyo boys of fashion.

Long black skirts are the most popular, but some boys wear short skirts over pants. The most popular skirts are going for over $200.

With this new trend Japanese fashion is going beyond gender’s difference. Part of it might even be the proximity of women at the stores as the boys frequent women’s stores to buy the skirts.
