Amekaji is a substyle of gyaru.
The Fashion Edit
Amekaji is based on American fashion styles. The name is a shortened version of "American Casual".
Amekaji has some very unique features that set it apart from classic gyaru styles. It features bright clothing colors, such as bright reds and blues, and various neon shades. It also features baggy clothes, like baggy jeans and shirts, as opposed to the classic sexy gyaru look. The style is also inspired by American fashion with its use of sweatshirts, graphic tees, jeans, hoodies, beanies, and flat brim caps.
Amekaji is a short-lived style that saw its height in the early to mid-2000s. Although some gyaru, especially abroad, still do wear the style, it is generally considered inactive nowadays.
