❥Goshikku Gyaru is a Gyaru who incorporates the Gothic fashion into her style.

❥Hair is usually not a natural color — red, purple, blue, or green but it can also be blonde, black or even brown.

❥Dark makeup around the eyes is very common, using dark eyeliner, large false eye lashes, and dark eye shadow. Rhinestones and jewels are used as well.

❥Accessories for a Goshikku Gyaru range from intense necklaces / chokers, cross necklaces or skull necklaces, heavy rings and studded belts.

❥Goshikku Gyaru clothing is very specific but simple to find. Many Gyaru just find tight fitting Visual Kei clothing bus as long as it’s dark, ripped and “gothic”, the clothing is fine.

❥Tight and dark jeans are acceptable as well as skinny jeans / pants.

❥Shoes can range from heavy goth boots to simple wedge sneakers.

❥This look is a cross between Gyaru and Visual Kei, but the makeup leans more to the Gyaru side and the clothing is not as extravagant and dark.

I like this style. I might take up on this!

Gal-Loli (Gal+Lolita)
Gal-Loli fashion, which is the intermediate fashion between Hime-kei (Princess fashion) and Gal-kei (Gal fashion), became popular a couple of years ago.There is not so many sense of discomfort about this style, because Hime-kei was delivered from Gal style.However, regarding Lolita fashion, its style and history is completely different to Gal fashion. For girls wearing Gal fashion, Lolita fashion seems like cosplay.And Gal fashion is well received by male. Meanwhile, Lolita fashion fills the self-satisfaction of the person who puts it on. Both of these two fashions are much difference to each other, so had never mixed together until now.But now, the people’s senses have changed by the expansion of the population of the costume player. Then, Gal fashion became a kind of the cosplay lately.In fact, there are many male and female costume players copying the costume of animation characters wearing Gal fashion. The person who enjoys both Gal fashion and Lolita fashion has increased.And this phenomenon is also affected by the fashion magazines and overseas collection.The magazine and collection is frequently proposing coordination taking an element of Lolita.Both Gal fashion and Lolita fashion will approach more and more in the future, and a new style might be created from among that.
Comments: As I sad in the hime gyaru post Lolita grab is allowed in hime gyaru. But you can show more leg.

History and evolution of Gyaru (gal) as seen in Popteen demonstrated by Pop Models

1990s to Present

(Reblogged from roppongi-nights)

Yoruhime(“night pricness”)-kei

Gorgeous girl’s club (kyabakura) women light up the night city with the neon lights. These women started to spring up in the 1980’s and were regarded to be somewhat difficult to emulate at the time. However, since the gal-kei fashion magazine first published in 2006 called “Koakuma ageha” inspired women in their teens and 20’s to admire their lifestyles and fashion, they have become popular and even ranked amongst the most popular careers.  Those women tend to have signature “mori(high volume)-hairstyles” and “mori (thick or heavy)-makeup”. Mori-hairstyle has its roots in the hairdos worn by the women of the upper class and women working in the entertainment place called “Yukaku” in Edo era. These hairdos not only look gorgeous but also make your hair look thicker in order to make your face look smaller and body line look slimmer. Mori-makeup features the use of eyeliners, fake eyelashes and colored contact lenses to emphasize the eyes and this makeup is designed to look attractive even inside the dim-lit rooms of kyabakura.  However, although it depends on the areas in which those women work, mori-hairstyles have become less thick and more moderate makeup has become popular.  In addition, they tend to wear the clothes that show a wide range of taste including the casual style, the girly style and the “Konsaba (conservative) kei”, indicating that they create their own trends rather than following existing ones. Hairdos, makeup and clothes chosen by girl’s club women have an influence on the gals. (Written by Mika Matsumoto)

Date Waru (Foppish bad boy)-

Along with the popularity of the Neo Gyaru which mixes styles from Shibuya and Harajuku in women’s fashion, the fashionable men’s Gyaru-O style which infuses elements of Harajuku’s male hairstylist fashion and mode fashion has been increasing. This style features combinations of prominent colors over a basic monotone base with layered tight-fit clothing. Hairstyles have become more adult compared to the previous wolf-like hairstyles but the coloring and layering has become elaborate. There are a great number of styles which give off a Visual-Kei vibe. This kind of style involving good-looking men with a bad side has been put out in the past by the men’s fashion magazine Men’s Knuckle under the name Date Waru.

Otaku-Gyaru (ヲタク系ギャル) is something press has been titling a few girls mainly from Popteen popular model and singer Hikari Shiina aka Pikarin (椎名ひかり – ぴかりん) and Okawaki Serika aka Serikamacho (奥脇晴梨夏 - せりかまちょ). Although I feel like Egg model Kanako Kawabata with her extreme Spongebob love falls under this category too. Hikari Shiina has a monthly segment in Popteen where she cosplays her favorite characters. Pikarin has really gotten popular lately.

Sweet Gyaru or Polished Girl/清楚な女のコ Seiso na Onna no Ko - It directly translates as “Neat and Clean Girl” but I think Polished Girl is a better translation because they say: Everyone aims to not look too Gal, and to not be plain but to have a Neat and Clean aura. 

The last one is the new make style.

Well this is more of different type of gyaru, and gyaru styles. If there’s any new styles I should add that I’ve over looked send me a line and some picture or if you find better examples. I’m open to suggestion. 

Anonymous said: Hey, the word gypsy is actually a pretty offensive slur. Maybe dont use it to describe a type of clothing? (Im refering to your resort style post where you said "gypsy skirts")

I didn’t write that got it off another site, I think, I don’t remember putting it Oh well. Non-politically correct term would be better. This is a non-bitchy tone. They are called tribal skirt, what we called it in belly dancing. I’ll change it though, like I said people are welcome to rewrite anything to make it sound better. I just put basic info, just kind of threw it up there.

Neo Gyaru styles can often be seen on the streets nowadays. This style features a look with foreign traits and the fashion seems to be a mixture of Shibuya and Harjuku. Talking to actual Neo Gyarus, it seems they were Ko-Gyarus (little Gyarus) in high school and they naturally progressed to this present style by wearing clothes and make-up they liked after graduating. Major sources of Neo Gyaru fashion information include fashion producer blogs and overseas collections. Neo Gyarus immediately want to buy items that they take a liking to so Internet shopping is popular. There are no particular themes in this fashion. It is possible to incorporate whatever clothing you prefer whether it is second-hand or luxury brand name clothing. Highlights are a popular hair style with many Neo Gyarus coloring only the tips of their hair with hair chalk.

"Shibu-Hara-Kei 渋原系. However, to Egg readers it’s known as Hara-Shibu-Kei 原渋系. As long as you know it’s a mix of Harajuku streetwear + 109 gal styling, you’re good! ”     -http://universal-doll.com/2013/10/conversation-friday-is-the-new-gyaru/
