There seems to be a new trend that's happening among Japanese fashionistas ==> Skirt that looks like tops that had been wrapped around the waist.
The ones that can be seen so far appear to be skirts that look like long-sleeved plaid tops that had been tied in a way to replace skirts. This trend could probably stem from the fact that many girls tie their plaid shirts as accesories instead of actually wearing it.
If this trend does take off, it'll be an easy one to replicate...
