Clothing and Accessories from Your Favorite Animes and Characters

A super cool trend that has emerged is the appearance of capsule collections and collaborations between major streetwear brands and Japanese animation studios to create lines of clothing and accessories inspired by characters from iconic series such as Boku no Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, Demon Slayer, Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, and many more...


Kawaii Make Up and Manicure Will Give You a Tender and Youthful Look

Another trend that has recently become popular is makeup and manicure with tender aesthetics and kawaii inspiration from anime and otaku culture. There's a lot of room to innovate and create cute looks with things like pastel-colored eyeshadows with glitter, exaggerated eyeliner and stickers, acrylic nails with character prints, and more.


Eye-catching Hairstyles Based on the Hair of Iconic Characters

The most iconic and characteristic hairstyles of classic anime characters have also become a great source of inspiration for creating innovative urban looks. Dying locks in bright colors such as pink, blue or violet, wearing high ponytails or Sailor Moon-style buns, bangs covering one eye, and more ideas based on distinctive anime cuts can give a unique touch to your streetwear outfit.


Oversize Footwear in the Mecha and Kawaii Style is a Trend

Finally, the oversized, exaggerated footwear that has become a dominant trend on runways and streetwear also has a clear connection to mecha and kawaii anime aesthetics. The oversized proportions of the soles and platforms recall the footwear of giant robots and armor from classic series like Evangelion. And the use of bright, bold neon colors is an element that comes straight from the kawaii subculture of Harajuku.


In conclusion, the influence of anime, manga and otaku culture on current streetwear is undoubted. As they both share that innovative and disruptive spirit, it is likely that we will continue to see more interesting trends emerge from this creative fusion between Japan and global streetwear.
