Clothing trends in Japan

Japanese people dress appropriately for the occasion.
For example, business suits and office casual clothes are common, and uniforms are common for public transportation and government work.

It is common for students to wear school uniforms, but these days things are changing little by little, and the number of schools where the rules are somewhat looser and where clothing and hairstyles are more liberal is increasing.
However, it is Japanese culture to follow the rules.
At present, there are still many rules, such as wearing uniforms and not having bright hair.

In the past, it was common knowledge for both men and women to keep their skin understated and not show their skin, and this custom still remains today.
However, people who are “attractive” in the entertainment and fashion industries tend to have a lot of exposure.

Regulations and values ​​regarding exposed skin differ from country to country.
Personally, I think it’s fine to have a preference.
However, I think that the culture and history of the country should be considered and respected.
I believe that it is precisely because there is respect that traditional clothing and culture remain.
