One of the most frequented questions in the gaijin gyaru community is how to create a gyaru coordinate without Japanese brands clothing, in this post I tried to suggest a coordinate totally offbrand I really like also if I’m a big brand fan. I love to buy brand things because the material, the details and the models are always more special and good than the ones you can find in our local stores but sometimes it’s possible to find a good alternative especially for someone who cannot order online or haven’t enough money to afford brand items. My outfit is a simple rokku coordinate, don’t forget that rokku gyaru isn’t “wear a skull t-shirt and a cross necklace” like a lot of people thinks, all the elements in my opinion must feel rokku even without a full coordinate and the accessories are REALLY important. Let’s start!
The shirt was a lucky and cheap find at Tally Weijil (a lot of European countries have this store), the print is really similar to some models from Glad News which make instantly the t-shirt perfect for rokku gyaru. The little chains with brooches makes it more special! The choker is a simple one I bought like 8 years ago from a UK website for around 7 euro, you can find this kind of choker almost everywhere and on ebay for cheap and the necklace is now in Bershka stores for 8 euro! The sandals were on sale for 50% on ebay from an Italian brand, so I paid them only 25 euro including shipping for good quality sandals, a really lucky find! If you search on ebay you can find a lot of good offers or during the sales maybe you can find something similar. The spikes and the chains are an always trend in rokku gyaru!
The shorts were also from the last Tally Weijil collection, they’re a gift in my case but the price is really affordable in line with other shorts prices from different cheap stores like h&m, forever21, terranova, etc. The crosses print is perfect for rokku gyaru and you can also use them for many other styles!
The spiked headband was an offer in Spinns when I was in Tokyo, I paid it around 7 euro, you can find something similar everywhere and on ebay for a super cheap price and in different colors! Spiked bracelets are always perfect with rokku, mine is super old and it was a gift, I think the original price is around 5 euro! The ring was a super cheap purchase from Taobao, I paid it like 0,50 euro XD.
So the final price for a complete outfit is: 13 euro (t-shirt) + 25 euro (shorts) + 7 euro (headband) + 7 euro (choker) + 5 euro (bracelet) + 8 euro (necklace) + 25 euro (sandals)+ 0,50 euro (ring) = 83,50 euro!
With this price you can make a completed outfit for rokku gyaru FULL of accessories! This is obiviously my opinion and my taste but I think it’s possible for everyone to create a complete outfit without spending a capital :P let me know what do you think about this post, if you like it I will make also a winter one in the next months!
