It’s only been about three months since I last wrote about Shibuya 109 stalwart brand Gimlet (here), and while others have let their winter stock stagnate it’s great to see that Gimlet have continued adding new and exciting items to their winter collection. This is the benefit of ‘fast fashion’ after all: it’s easy to add new lines and reinvent the brand each season according to trends.

I’m really taken with the new Gimlet clothing as there’s a brilliant rock edge to the coordinates, perfect for layering up in the colder weather and peeling off as we turn to spring. There’s also a few beautifully classic items in the mix too, making for a much more mature and stylistically varied gyaru image. Variety is the spice of life, as they say!

Read on for Gimlet’s edgier side, and one of my favourite gyaru outfits of this season

Yes, over-knee socks are back! Did they ever leave? Great to see them paired with a looser top and rock boots & shorts for an effortlessly cool look.

This is pretty much a default/every day outfit for me! T-shirt, tight black trousers and ankle boots. LOVE IT. A real modern classic.

Isn’t this massive cardigan amazing? It makes me think of those blankets with sleeves – slankets, right?

Sheer loose top, tie-dye jeans, boots… actually, I think Samuel has jeans pretty similar to these! Wonder if I can borrow them for a Gimlet-inspired look?

This coat is pretty fabulous and combines this winter’s leopard fur & camel colour trends into an item that transcends the trends it borrows from.

Gimlet at it’s very best: truly gorgeous gyaru style, the epitome of urban chic.

  1. Over the knee socks are like my THING! I love them, have loved them since I landed my butt here, and continue to love them. I’m really enjoying the nordic print this year and I’ve even gone for a legwarmer over the OTK look which I have not really seen but enjoy doing.

    I like this look. I could pull this off for sure!

    I’m going to have to get back into knee socks again – since I’ve had my leg tattooed I’m not sure what it’ll look like!

    Yeah, it’s a fairly simple look, but really nicely styled! Great for every day 🙂

    LOVE these rock looks!! (Well, maybe not the denim) Love the ripped distressed black pants, the platform boots, the coats, the fur and the leopard – MEOW!

    It’s just gyaru perfection, isn’t it? Sigh.
