Mori Girl Variations: Part 4

As always, if anyone has any other terms they would like to contribute, or if you make a post of your own ideas, please let me know and I will make a master post to link them all together. And please keep in mind that all these variations have come from my own head, and that they are not officially recognized terms.

Here we go!

13.Simplistic Mori:

This variation is rather hard for me to explain, but I'll try my best!

I basically think of this variation as a smoothed out, no unnecessary frills, kind of Mori. It can border a casual kind of Mori at times, but it still maintains the traditional silhouette. Basically, it's Mori at its minimum.

14.Romantic Mori:

This variation contains lots of extra lace and romantic colors. However, the lace is never bulky or OTT, but instead has a more mature and feminine look. It can have many layers or few, but it always maintains it's soft feminine feel.

15.Bohemian Mori

This one is pretty self-explanatory. It's when Mori and Boho styles mix. Usually, though, I'd say the Mori style is more evident, and the Boho style is more hints or small pieces of the outfit. This is a more western variation I think.

16.Shabby Chic Mori:

If you've ever seen a picture of Shabby Chic decor, then you know exactly what this variation is before you see any pictures. But for those who haven't, here are a few Shabby Chic interior photos to help you get an idea for this variation.

So, Shabby Chic Mori contains lots of different flower patterns, lots of lace, and a kind of cute but cluttered feel. Common colors would be pinks, blues, and sometimes greens or yellows.

What do you think of these terms? Do you agree? Disagree? Let me know below, or in my cbox. (Constructive criticism is always welcome!)

  1. I definitely find myself being drawn to Romantic Mori! I am attracted to frills and lace, haha ♥

  2. I love your variations posts! I really like the simplistic and romantic styles c:

  3. I love the latter three! I'm not into minimalism though :P

  4. Thanks for post about the different styles of Mori, it is useful and very helpful to somehow define your own style. My own style is mix of Simplistic, western and dark Mori :)


  5. Romantic mori is so, so lovely and angelic! Though, I'm more attracted to shabby and bohemian mori. Such a woman-who-lives-in-a-shoe feeling. Ooh, and I've been eye-balling True Rebel for a while. Very talented!
