If you have friends in Japan, you might hear some people say that there are two kinds of styles for women. Either “gyaru or hime.” Girl or princess. Girl style is what you will mostly see in Shibuya: impossibly high heels, tight jeans, hair two miles high, and crop tops galore. Harajuku is where you will see the “princesses” with their pink, pearls, and tiny pets in their purses. It is easy to find stores to satisfy these particular genres, they are littered all over Shibuya, Omotesando, and Harajuku. However, what if you are a girl who falls somewhere outside or in between these fashion trends? What are you to do if you do not like to sway one way or the other? If this sounds like you then move beyond Harajuku’s Takeshita-dori and go straight into Omotesando. In the midst of this shopping district, you will find the Cat Street brand of X-Girl. X-Girl is a clothing label that caters to the ladies who are in between, like to dress down without looking frumpy, and have a little quirky sense of adventure.
X-Girl’s sense of style could be categorized as comfortable with flair. This can be said because their signature pieces include their screen printed T-shirts and denim. T-shirt dresses, embellished T-shirts, T-shirts with pockets, T-shirts that have been deconstructed. If you can think of a style that you can create with one piece of cotton, then you can probably find it on X-Girl’s shelves. Not to say that they are without style. Whether it has a quirky saying on it or is just plain monotone colors, their styles are easily integrated into the most fashionable of wardrobes. As previously mentioned, X-Girl has a great selection of denim in styles ranging from cut off shorts to boyfriend to skinny. The perfect classic combination of jeans and a T-shirt is perfected at X-Girl.
They have accessories that are equally hard to resist. You can pick up wallets with interesting hardware or handbags that could essentially fit your whole cosmetic and key collection (and a bento box and bottle of green tea) inside. Keychains, key rings, hair elastics, hand towels, and lighters can be found with the X-Girl logo emblazoned across their accessories which come in a variety of eye popping, hard to miss colors. X-Girl also has seasonable options in their accessories department such as floral prints, glittery snakeskin, or graffiti style bubble letters. Whatever your style when it comes to accessories and wallets, you can definitely find something to pick up at X-Girl.
If you are neither “gyaru” or “princess” and are looking to chill out in some stylish T-shirts and jeans, then head on out to Omotesando and give X-Girl a try!
