I don't see where all the negativity towards this style comes from.

It's basically one of the most wearable yet cute styles among the jfash community
>>
>>9051556
Nah mori makes you look like a homeless spinster unless you really tone it down. The most wearable styles are probably otome and larme.
>>
>>9051568
Larme → constant sunburn so kawaii desu

I really like the north European vintage style of mori and it's definitely my go to style during the cold seasons

I think we can all agree that lolitas and cosplayers are pretty batshit crazy as well.

Let's be real, we are all here arguing about foreign fashion styles, cartoons, and who can dress more like a foreign cartoon. We are all crazy here. Post more beautiful foreign forest fashion shit.

YesStyle has a category for a more "modern" mori kei (really not the right adjective), and my favourite store is Fairyland

Does anyone know what magazine this is? I got it at a second hand book store and it has clothing patterns and photos in, but i can't read it and can't sew either lol. Just got it because it was quite cute. I'm not an expert in mori either but some of it seemed quite mori-ish to me.

Sorry for the shit quality image, I dont have a scanner and am armed only with a crap phone camera.

This is a natural system/kei pattern book.

Natural is very similar to mori, but the style has been around since the 80s and is usually popular with older women and housewives.

The general rule of natural kei is all natural materials, and loose/comfortable clothing. Layers are popular but does not define the style like it does for mori.
There is also a huge "lifestyle" following (organic cosmetics, home cooked meals and of course handmade clothing).


Title of book from Amazon.jp
Gauze, linen, made from cotton natural clothing -. Full of comfortable clothes to wear all year round in the layering (Lady boutique series no 2767

Hey anons, I hail from /fa/ and since the retards there couldn't help me I figured I'd ask here.

Any idea which stores in Asia sell stuff like pic related?
Also, any idea how to wear more nature-inspired stuff casually (with trousers)? Thanks in advance, sorry it's not the right place to ask but figured you guys may be able to help.

First things first: are you a guy or girl? Most things in /cgl/ are targetted towards female, and if you are, then forestgirlfans on taobao will be your best friend for nature style. I'll look around for some stuff for guys/featuring trousers.

I'll dump what pants pics I have

A lot of pants pics will have long enough hemlines of the shirts to cover the top, so maybe you can use the oversized look to tone down the outfit?

they have a lot of knit kawaii stuff like hats and sweaters, but check out their coats and dresses! a lot of their stuff seems to be inspired by woodland fairytales but is flowy and loose-fitting.

another crossboarder here. This shop is pure gold. I'm angry that I got always so easily alienated by this board, so that I discovered Mori only recently. Definitely a lovely contrast to the boring normcore, chrome fits over at /fa/.

Just stick to loose garments made of natural materials and tone down the layering.
Put more emphasis on accessories (straw hats, cute ankle socks, quirky bags, hair accents, spring/summer scarves).

Check out the taobao thread for a better list of stores and shopping services if you're planning on buying stuff, anon!

I'm pretty into mori and some of my hobbies are pretty predictable (hiking, baking, reading) I don't consider myself that into the ~lifestyle~ aspect of mori or the other jfash I'm into.
>>
I'm surprised how little of this type of clothing I actually find when I try looking for it. Combing over thrift shops and antique malls alike, but I can't ever seem to find something useful. Is Taobao or other internet sources the only place to find this style of clothing?
>>
>>9078765
Really anon? I guess it's hard to find items that just look mori, but if you look at coords, like >>9073719, you'll notice that none of the items look particularly special. In that coord in particular you have a red cable-knit sweater (it looks cotton from the picture, easily found in places like Old Navy) a tableclothy gingham skirt (I've seen one just like that in my Goodwill in New York), a lace petti that could just as well be a slip or another white skirt, a basic scarf, and a suede coat, also easily thriftable. The boots kind of look like furry uggs to me.

In general, mori pieces don't have to all come from certain types of brands, they're mostly normal-ish items that tend to look like they blong to a grandma in a certain range of natural colors. Search in stores for those natural colors first, and then imagine them in a mori coord. Of all the j-fash styles, I pretty much feel like mori's the easiest to find and get into.

Not AYRT but I have the same issue of finding mori clothes to be impossible to pick up locally. It might be where I live. Second hand places are rare around here, the main one being a Goodwill, and they carry all the same kinda crappy stuff. My favorite resale place closed down last year, it was the only one I ever found clothes at and I'm so sad. But even that one never had anything mori-appropriate.
>>
>>9073222
I think I would be what you'd consider a mori lifestyler, ha ha! Don't consider myself one and I'm not sure that mori even has a lifestyle, but if it did I think I would be a poster child for it.

So to get a conversation going, how do gulls like to do their hair and makeup for mori? How important do you all think it is for the overall look? Since it's such a natural style, I feel like really dramatic makeup would look silly, but at the same time, I'm always worried about looking tired and not put together.
>>
>>9084788
I KNOW I'm a "lifestyler" but I never would have connected my life to a Japanese fashion.

I live in a literal cabin in the woods, make fires in a cast-iron stove, ride my 1973 Schwinn around a tiny historic and operating fishing village, hike, garden, am a regular at the local cidery stationed inside an old barn... I'm living the life, kids. So lovely~.
>>
>>9094804
I take care of my skin. On days I do look tired, I use concealer, but I do wear a sunscreen BB cream every day. Most days, for work (I manage a tiny one-room shop for the local craft distillery), I wear eyeliner and a light pink blush. I NEVER cover my freckles - I've got lots - and I wear sunscreen ALL THE TIME.

As for my hair, right now I'm in the Music Man for community theatre. I have to keep it long. I wear it up in twin-buns a lot, or that messy bun on top of the head. Soon I'll have it shorn short.

>>9094792

looks like earth music & ecology, but I might be wrong. they're typically not a strict mori brand. more casual.

Did you grow up that way or did you put yourself into that life? Ive always wanted what you have but it seems hard to get into if its not what you grew up around, as in being accepted by towns or finding these small towns at all.

It looks nothing like mori. Why don't you post some Victorian reproduction dresses in a lolita thread next time?
