You may have heard of the increasingly popular “Mori Girl” style, also known as Mori Kei (Japanese for forest style), which emerged from Japan in the mid 2000s. I’ve only just recently discovered it (via a recent article in Faerie Magazine) and instantly fell in love with not only the clothing, but the lifestyle that surrounds it. A Mori Girl, is essentially a girl of the forest, who loves wearing many loose, organic colored layers, and whimsical things like lockets, pocket watches, wreaths of flowers and scarves. She wears her hair naturally, loves being warm, cozy, and comfortable, but also loves adventure. She is creative and often takes walks in the woods with her camera – the forest and its animals are close to her heart. And as Faerie Magazine pointed out, “she loves fairy tales, and dreams of becoming part of one.” I see a lot of myself in this description and thought perhaps many of you would be interested also. So, I’ve put together some inspiration for a Mori Girl bridal look. Enjoy!
