NATbyJ is back with their trendy fashion tips, most appropriate and best for the country and time of visit!

Japan is known to be a very conservative country and showing too much skin is always being frowned on. It is important to not show too much skin and since Japan has a lot of shrines and temple, it is best to always wear something covered and not too short for the bottoms.



There are misconceptions that covered tops are too lame and that it is so hard to create cute outfits with them, and we’re here to change that conception! Long sleeved tops can be cute as well when paired correctly. Chiffon long sleeved tops are one of the trendier looks in the world nowadays and wearing a chiffon long sleeved top, with a cute skirt would be the way to go! It is a look that is bound to make heads turn while ensuring that you stay appropriate in the country. The concept is generally a simple one, with a white top and a dark coloured bottom like black or grey. To complete the look, you can simply grab a crossbody bag with chain, preferably in black so it gives off the young vibe when put beside the outfit.

This entire outfit concept screams simple and we don’t want to have too many unnecessary accessories dangling around. To complete the look, it is the safest to go with a neutral coloured watch. The NATbyJ Unpretentious 0109 is a perfect fit for this outfit due to its simplicity yet elegant design of the watch.

The Unpretentious 0109 is a minimalist watch that has embossed hour markers on it on a white leather dial and paired with a light brown genuine leather strap. This would sit well beside the white chiffon top and a black chained bag. The outfit idea is portrayed youth and shouting for life, and there is not better watch that could complement it as well our Unpretentious could! Click here for more details on the watch!
