Mori Girl

Mori Girl fashion recently emerged in 2007 in Japan. Mori means "forest" in Japanese, and the style concept is "a girl who looks like she is living in the forest" The look is natural & earthy. The fictional archetype was declared as being the character of Hagu from Honey & Clover. The actual archetype of Mori Girl fashion is the actress Yuu Aoi, who as a matter of fact played Hagu in the Honey & Clover movie in 2006. Mori girl has developed not only as a style but as a lifestyle as well! Quirky girls who love vintage clothing, pocket watch, tea, moss or went snooping in the grandma's attic will feel right at home in this fashion style. Although mori girl is natural, it does not mean it is simple! Mori girl does have a little bit of complexity to it.
  1. 1
    Lifestyle. Mori Girls intakes the world by their hands as they enjoy drinking tea and exchanging clothes with friends, traveling by plane, bicycle, or just walking. They have an eye for European culture like in Ireland, France, and Germany. Mori Girls are also fascinated by taking pictures. Although shy, they are sweet young ladies with proper manners and a lovely style.

    Hair. Mori Girl Hair can be airy, straight, wavy, braided or put up. Just keep it natural. You can use lace or string to put into your hair. Flowers & berries are also popular hair accessories.
  4. 4
    Make Up.Keep it natural as possible nothing heavy. Keep your eyeshadow in the earthy tones. Perhaps don't wear any make up at all. Keep your skin clean. Dove body wash is very good for the skin for it is a white soap and has good lipids ("note: that are not the fat ones") that form in the skin to create a soft texture to the skin. And also natural oil shampoos are great if you are in to that type of thing.

    Pick the right color. Earth toned colors such as antique white, white, beige, brown, ivory are very popular with Mori Girls. However you can add colors such as mustard, dark blue, bordeaux & dark green. Only use colours that you could find in a forest.

    Pick the Right Shape. Clothing of the Mori Girl is not body conscious. This means nothing fitted or that hugs the body. Instead of a S-M pick and L-XL. Don't forget to layer your clothing. This will create a natural volume as well.
