Where to Shop: Slice of Life
Finding cute workwear can be one of the most daunting tasks of all. You have to make sure that it not only reflects your personal style—and fits correctly!—but is appropriate for the office as well. And the same can be said for schoolwear. But no worries, The COMM has been on the case and we’ve found four Tokyo retailers who are making it a breeze to find clothes that are fashionable and appropriate.
CONOMi is an internationally-renowned uniform shop that attracts Tokyo residents and tourists from all over the world with their adorable, well-made uniforms that are perfect for both school and streetwear. Located in Harajuku, the hub of all things kawaii, CONOMi is a great place to find work or school clothes that show off your personal style and add a touch of kawaii to your life! Pick up a cream vest, a ruby necktie, or a navy tartan skirt to complete your uniform fantasy.
