14 Trendsetting Street-Style Snaps From Tokyo

They say that Japanese style is light-years ahead of the rest of the world; by the time we "discovered" flatforms and midi skirts, the Japanese fashion set was already onto to the next big thing.

If these trendsetters are to be believed (and frankly, who wouldn't believe in these awesome outfits?), we'll be seeing quite a few more voluminous skirts and pants, socks and sandals, and super-sleek bangs in the seasons to come. U.S. fashion, here's a glimpse into your future.
