What is Mori Kei

What is Mori kei Often described as a free-spirited person with a sense of peace surrounding her, looking like she lives somewhere in a fairy tale forest, far away from the bustle of big cities. A style for the forest dweller. It’s no surprise then that 森ガール uses the Japanese kanji for forest, and ガール meaning girl. Mori Kei was created around 2006 with Coco being the founder of the style. She wrote a book with 60 rules to qualify for being a Mori and published it on a social network called Mixi. At the time these rules were written Mori and Natural Kei wer still considered about the same style. Later however, they both moved their own way. Keep in mind though that these are loose guidelines one can go by. Even the original Mori didn’t follow them by the detail.After the publication of the Mixi 60 rules checklist Mori Girl quickly began to gain more recognition. It wasn’t until 2010 however that Mori was recognized as an official style. It can however be seen as more than just dressing the part, it’s a lifestyle. Mori girls are often free-spirited, nature lovers and laid back. They tend to not rush into things and do things as their own pace and time. They enjoy the simple things in life, such as reading a book while drinking a cup of tea, strolling through antique shops, gardening or photography. In general these Mori girls prefer a lot of quality time with themselves. Simply trying to find some peace in the hectic lives a lot of people live in.Key points of the fashion When a Mori Girl goes shopping she buys things that are both practical and comfortable. They shouldn’t be tight fitting. She doesn’t pay too much attention to how trendy it is or how it would make others view her. A typical Mori Girl would feel right at home during the autumn and winter seasons, because this style is all about layering. Loose and dreamy layers made from natural fabrics are key. Think about materials such as cotton, wool, crocheted and knitted things or pieces of fur. Layering is actually something that can be quite difficult to pull off, as people tend to overcomplicate things. The idea is to keep it simple. There is no point in just adding tons of layers if they aren’t visible or don’t add anything you the outfit. Dresses are usually the basic the start from, and can easily be matched with blouses and sweaters. Combining it with a skirt is also possible. Another tip is to layer a variety of skirts in different lengths on top of each other. Oversized cardigans or vest can be worn as an extra layer. Tights can further be layered with wool socks. ColoursThe goal is to look natural and earthy, colours that can easily be found back in the forest. Think about tones such as antique white, white, off-white, cream,  brown, mauve, gray and ivory. This doesn’t mean only beige colours are allowed however. Mustard, light blue as well as dark blue, light pink, bordeaux and shades of green can also be used. As long as it keeps that feeling of calmness around it. Pattern styles that include florals and nature are also quite common.MakeupSome Mori Girls wear some degree of makeup in a natural style, while others decide to wear none at all. Eyeshadow should be applied in earthy tones. Circle lenses are not often used. A bit of blush can be used for that natural outdoor look, but keep in mind not to overdo it. The point isn’t to look like a doll. Instead of lipstick a tinted lip balm is the better option for this style, as it gives a more natural touch. The nails are usually kept short and clean, for convenience reasons. Some prefer the use of light nail polishes such as pale pink or a pearl colour. When wearing perfume it shouldn’t have an overpowering scent, but instead a light floral one. HairstylesMori hairstyles can be worn in any way possible, but again it’s important to keep in mind to leave it natural. Wavy hair is considered a popular choice, but it can also be straight, braided or pinned up. Choco herself recommends a bob cut with straight bangs, or straight bangs with a long, loose perm. Brown is amongst the popular colour choices, followed by strawberry blond and black. Accessoires There is a large variety to what one can use for their hair. Ribbons, headbands, lace, knitted hat or earmuffs among them. But also think about using nature elements such as flowers pieces, flower crowns or berries. Large comfy scarfs and woolen gloves can be worn during the cold months. Jewellery is usually delicate and made out of gold. These can have a vintage theme, such as pocket watches for example. Mori Girls are fascinated with historical objects after all. Bags can be designed in the shape of animals and are usually made out of naturals materials as well . But large shoulder bags modified with lace or fur is also possible. What shoes to wear with Mori KeiFor Mori Girls the practical use is mostly kept in mind when choosing a pair of shoes. These are, like the rest of their outfit, often in earth tones and made of a natural materials. These can vary from hiking shoes to brown boots. Shopping advice To create an ideal Mori Girl look it’s a good idea to start browsing thrift and antique stores. A vintage look is preferred in this style after all. Handmade pieces to create a look is also a big thing in this fashion. When creativity isn’t your expertise stores such as Etsy or StoreEnvy are the perfect solution. Keywords such as Natural and Shabby Chique can give you some good results. Difference between Mori Girl and Natural Kei While they both are styles that pull inspiration from the forest, the best way to see the difference between the two is by the seeing it this way;Natural Kei is the girl who lives in a cottage near a forest. The key points in their clothing style are layers of ruffled skirts, flowery and prairie prints and the use of bold colour contrasts. Meanwhile Mori is the girl who actually lives in the forest. Their colour pattern is in general kept more simple. What I love the most about this style?While I wouldn’t say I identify myself as a Mori girl (I’m a city girl who is all about cutesy stuff) I can without a doubt appreciate the style and the sentiment behind it. I love the romantic feel that is created by the layering effect, colour scheme and use of fabrics. It looks like such a comfortable style to wear. So are you a Mori Girl or do you wanna be one?

MOR101: Mori kei vs. Natural kei

UPDATED 101114 One of the biggest questions in the mori community is, "What's the difference between mori kei and natural kei?" I think this is a great topic to discuss, since there seems to be a lot of confusion and since the styles are actually very different! Additionally, there is a lot of history here and you can make your own decision about my interpretation. ❁ The History The oldest style between the two is the natural kei, but it has quite a different aesthetic than what I believe is most modern. Traditional natural kei came around the 1970s and is more shabby-chic. Moss Märchen was one of the leading natural kei blogs until she closed in late 2012, but she does a great job of explaining natural kei. Here are some images from her blog to give you an idea of traditional natural kei. I think this style is slightly closer to what might have already been worn in the time period that it came about. Natural kei is described as being similar to "Little House on the Prairie," where the wearer lives on the edge of the forest but not quite in it, so she can afford more trendy clothing. The mori term came around 2007, purposed to name a style that already existed. I really recommend checking out this video to show what Japanese mori girls thought about the style as it became recognized. This is the literal difference between mori and natural kei. However, I want to propose a more modern interpretation of the difference... ❁ Mori Kei Firstly, mori kei, literally means "forest style." So, girls that dress in mori look like they live in and are from the forest. In my own interpretation, mori girls tend to have more of a "forest spirit" vibe. White or beige, lacy, lots of layers. Mori kei, over natural kei, tends to be more popular in Japanese street snaps, because it's more over the top than natural kei. ❁ Natural Kei Natural kei is best described as the style of girls that live in a small town near the forest and will spend time in the woods. They are able to afford finer clothes, clothes with color, clothes with patterns, and a few whimsical or quirky pieces. Definitely less lace pieces, but not necessarily less layers (though natural kei can get away with fewer layers while mori kei cannot). Once mori began to become popular in the western culture, many people started tagging this type of mori also as natural kei. This was most likely confusion or in order to gain more attention to their posts, but I think that calling this natural kei is appropriate because it goes along with the concept of traditional natural kei (living on the edge of the forest), but with modern clothing (pants, for example). My favorite natural kei brand is DearLi on Taobao! Update: Lately, Dearli only has a few natural and mori pieces, but they're definitely super cute and deserve a look at. ❁ Remember That most of the time, these two sister styles are crossed over and each are inspired by the other. Don't be afraid to mix them up or wear natural one day, then mori the next! Most of the time, I will say "mori kei" and mean both, since they're nearly the same in concept, but it's good to know the distinction and where the natural kei term originally came from in case you want to get technical. I leave it up to you to decide if you want to take on the modern interpretation of natural kei or not. ^^ Also check out my MOR101: Introduction to Mori Kei post, especially if you're confused about Choco's mori list. The most important thing is to wear what makes YOU feel like a forest girl :) Until next time, Miss Kellie
