The Mori girl look is natural, but that doesn't necessarily mean simple.  Coordinating colors, layering fabrics, and picking the right accessories can be complex.  And, complex doesn't have to mean expensive.  Many Mori girl items can be found at thrift stores.

The primary colors a Mori girl wears are earth tones.  This includes:

  • Dark brown
  • Green
  • Burgundy
  • Dark blue
  • Ivory
  • Mustard yellow

Other colors can also be worn, such as soft pink, white, and even black, though black should be worn sparingly.  Instead of solid colors, fabric choices can be prints as well.  This includes floral patterns, stripes, polka dots, animal prints, vintage prints, and ombre colors, though really any pattern can have the Mori girl vibe.

A few must-haves for any Mori girl:

  • Loose fitting dress
  • A-line dress
  • Below the knee skirts
  • Poncho
  • Bolero
  • Tights and leggings
  • Ruffled socks
  • Lace underdress
  • Long or oversized sweater
  • Smock
  • Vintage style blouses

Other items a Mori Girl may have include cardigans, knit wear, knee high socks, and loose fitting pants.  Mori Girls prefer quirky, comfortable clothing to flashy, revealing, or tight fitting clothing.  Blouses often have puffed sleeves and skirts often have ruffles.  Mori girls also prefer cloth and wood buttons over other materials.

Mori Girls wear many layers, such as a skirt under a dress, or a sweater or shirt over a dress, an each layer is partially visible.  This does not mean that Mori Girls wear many items, though sometimes that is the case.  With so many layers to wear, it's best to not try this style on a very hot day.
