Things every hime gyaru should have!


Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ Today I wanted to talk about the things that every hime gyaru should have*! ♡♡ I remember Mana Starre writing a post like this a very, very long time ago but unfortunately they deleted all of their old advice posts… Which is why I decided to give it a go!

This will also serve as a check-list for me and help me on my hime gyaru journey ♡

Okie, let’s go! (´,,•ω•,,)♡

*disclaimer: obviously it’s completely up to you whether or not you want these things as not every hime gal is the same!

btw I wrote a similar post for agejo if you’re interested

♡ Things every hime gyaru should have ♡

1. Kawaii ugg-style boots with bows and/or on them
These will be perfect for your winter outfits when it’s waaaaay too cold to wear a pair of heels! They add a lovely casual twist to a hime gal outfit which makes it ideal for ‘everyday’ coords.

2. A pair of cute flats (preferably with bows or lace on) tucked away into your bag for emergencies
This is kind of related to the previous point but honestly – if you’re like me and can’t really wear heels, you can always jazz up a pair of flats with lovely clip-on bows or pearls.

3. Wigs + hair extensions
Wigs and hair extensions are integral to any hime gal wardrobe (whether you’re more of a JD hime or a La Pafait hime). The big hime hair is absolutely iconic, and you can only really achieve that with wigs and hair extensions as well as a bumpit.

4. A healthy collection of false lashes + gyaru makeup in general
Hime gyaru belongs under the gyaru umbrella, so things like false lashes and makeup are especially important! Very old-school hime might skip out on the lashes but makeup is essential.

5. My Melody bag
My Melody is the perfect companion to any hime gyaru! Gals like Himena and Ayano Tokumaru used to have My Melody motifs in a lot of their hime gyaru outfits.

6. Hime Gyaru brand item (whether that’s clothes or accessories)
I understand that not everyone can access brand items so this is optional but it’s good to be able to support your favourite hime gyaru brand, whether that’s through something small like hair accessories or clothes!

7. OTT deco’d phone case
Whether it’s super blingy or has a bit of glitter – hime gyaru love to go extra when it comes to phone cases!

8. Large bow hair accessory
The most famous bow hair accessory is the La Pafait bow, but lots of Jesus Diamante shop staff also wore bows!

9. Pearl jewellery
I feel like pearls are the most popular jewellery type for hime gyaru – I myself have no less than 5 pearl necklaces! You can get them in varying lengths depending on the necklines on your dresses.

10. Floral hair accessories
Flowers are very popular in hime gyaru hairstyles! They’re also really good if you want to go for more of a glamorous look rather than a cutesy one.

11. Frilly bolero – one for dark coords, one for light coords
Okay so it doesn’t haaaave to be frilly, but one with some lovely details like frills, ribbons or lace would be perfect for hime gyaru!

12. A small tiara – you’re a princess after all!
I don’t actually see a huge amount of tiaras being worn but I mean… It does make you feel like a princess, so why not?

13. A collection of Ageha/Vanilla Girl/Popteen mags
Unfortunately us hime gyaru aren’t lucky enough to have a lot of issues dedicated solely to hime gyaru, which is why it’s always good to have other magazines in our collection that matches our vibe! Ageha for glamorous days and Popteen for our princess-off-duty looks.
Yes, I know Popteen doesn’t really feature hime gyaru, but it does feature a lot of himekaji styles which translates to ‘casual princess’ so it’s valid.

14. Set of deco nails (or get your nails done)
99% of the time a hime gyaru would have her nails done! I rarely see hime gyaru without some flashy nails.

15. Thermal tights so that you can still wear cute dresses in winter
Thermal tights are a must in cold weather!

16. Huge collection of dresses
Hime gyaru live in dresses. You don’t see many of them in casual attire e.g. jeans. But don’t worry too much if you can’t wear dresses all of the time – just opt for himekaji instead!

17. Lace patterned tights
Lace tights look super pretty with hime gyaru! I love pairing patterned tights with plain dresses just to jazz it up a little.

18. A lil’ collection of deco items to decorate everything in sight (pearls, rhinestones, lace, etc)
Yep, hime gyaru love to decorate!

19. A pair of elegant heels
There must be at least one pair of light-coloured heels and one for darker coords in your wardrobe.

20. Pink face mask during the pandemic (and to cover up makeup-less face haha)
It’s a lot easier to find cute masks with covid restrictions easing! If not, you could always layer a cute one over your regular one.

6. A cute handbag
You gotta’ have a cute handbag to match your cute coord!

7. My Melody/pink kigu
Nothing feels better than being all cosy in a cute lil’ kigu!

Anyway, until next time ♡♡
