Lizzie Loves: Gyaru Autumn/Winter Collections 2016!

I think that this is the first time I’ve actually been looking forward to Autumn; I guess that our summer over here was pretty bad and a mixture of super hot days and miserable, rainy days, that I’d rather have it just miserable because at least then it’s kind of predictable. Another reason could be that I’m really, really looking forward to Halloween! I’ve already began purchasing some Halloween decor to jazz my room up.

The coming of Autumn also means that shops are bringing out their Autumn/Winter collections – this already started at the end of August but I decided to wait a little bit until their full collection is out. And now the time has come and I’ve put together a few of my favourites!

Let’s start with… MA*RS!

Aah, MA*RS, you can’t seem to let go of the dramatic flair can’t you? I am so happy that they’ve kept some of their outgoing prints although it seems like the rose print is all of the rage this year. I love what they’re doing with it but I can’t help but think that it looks very similar to other brands… Nevertheless it’s still pretty. They’ve brought back some plaid as well this year and I kinda’ like it! It hasn’t really got that MA*RS vibe to it though, but it’s cute.

Oh my gosh I am in love with their items! It’s weird because there’s a mixture of two styles: one their classic onee style; and the other a more casual kei that you would see right out of EGG magazine. I can’t get enough of it! Sakurina looks timeless as usual… How does she do that?!

Liz Lisa

Liz Lisa seem to have gone for a more Larme Kei look now which I am definitely not complaining about because I LOVE Larme Kei. It can still be worked into your himekaji wardrobe, though. It feels weird not seeing many florals, but I really like the plaid.

Jesus Diamante

I never thought they’d be a day where I included Jesus Diamante on this list, but lately I’ve been drooling over their posts on Twitter and just had to snoop on their new collection. I probably wouldn’t be able to wear Jesus Diamante but a gal can dream!

Swankiss (not technically gyaru)

Can this brand be any cuter?! I also love the props they use for their photoshoots – everything is just so sweet that I’m getting a toothache (in a good way). I just love their lace and fluffy combinations. I’ve been seeing a lot of the top-and-cami trend lately over here, but it looks like Swankiss has moved on from that trend (because come on, Western trends are super slow! They need to catch up!)

That’s all for today! I really can’t wait to see some of these hit Western stores (although that’ll probably take 3 years or something) but in the meantime I’m going to try and find a shopping service to get these items or, as a last resort, find something similar on eBay. What do you think of the Autumn/Winter collections this year? Do you have a favourite?

Until next Sunday! ♡

Last week I went to Hyper Japan at the O2 and had an amazing time. I wasn’t too sure that I would’ve been able make it so everything was really last minute, but luckily I was still able to attend the fashion show. This did mean getting up at 6am to get ready, but some things are worth sacrificing for and I was way too excited to be tired anyway.
