This months issue of JELLY featured Ayumi Hamasaki on the cover, and was also shortly featured on the front of 109. It also came with a free ‘Dazzlin’ phone case, which Mitsu had said was pretty good quality so I rushed out to get my copy.
A couple of things I have been really pleased with in the latest issues of JELLY are the increasing amount of hair tutorials and their features on Mode fashion. Everyone knows that Mode is big in Gal right now, but I am still pleased to see it in magazines as I really love it. Therefore I wanted to give you a peek from the latest issue of the key items in Mode right now.
I have also translated parts of the text, and then worded it in English so it made more sense. It may not be correct each time but I tried my best as I am not used to the kind of Japanese they use in Gal magazines – haha it’s quite different, so I will have to study it XD
Sorry about the quality of the pictures – I don’t have access to a scanner so I am doing things old school and using a camera.
– See Through –
“If you wear a black coord, it’s easy to get a sexy see-through look”
– High Waist –
“Always trending in Mode. With a tight coord you can add volume to your feet”
I went for ‘you can add volume to your feet‘ as in, you can wear fur boots etc.
– Napoleon Jacket –
“Napoleon jackets add presence and the outfit comes together with leggings or tights.”
– Scarf Pattern –
“For this design, a black base is perfect to create a retro Mode feel.”
Note: Scarf patterns are really in right now. I’ve seen lots of Gals workin’ the trousers, especially.
– Sarrouel Pants –
“For a slender silhouette coordinate with a slightly loose top”
– Bandage Skirt –
“For emphasis, choose a skirt with a fairly tight line”
JELLY also featured a few pages on how to get the Mode look this season.
I thought some of them were a little bland so I picked a couple of coords that I have seen worn the most by Gals right now.
Poncho x Black Leggings
So popular right now. I’ve also seen a lot of non-Gals wearing Ponchos too.
A few Gals are also pairing a Poncho with tight black jeans.
Shirt Onepiece x Leggings
Whether it’s with tights, leggings or skinny jeans,
the oversized shirt onepiece is massive in Mode right now.
I have been searching high and low for the perfect one, and I think I have finally found one in 109’s ‘muse muse by ROYAL PARTY‘.
What items grab your attention?
