What to Wear When Clubbing in Tokyo


Jet-setting across the seven seas, or simply swapping neighborhood spots, What To Wear When is your weekly column for shopping inspiration.

Tokyo is a world of its own. A mesmerizing hub of shopping, nightlife, and culinary exploits, the Japanese capital is one of the most expensive cities in the world—and one that’s earned the most Michelin stars ever, too. No wonder, then, that the hypnotic city that was once a small fishing village named “Edo” (which means “estuary”) continuously draws large swaths of tourists all throughout the year. American celebrities who’ve openly expressed their love for Tokyo include everyone from Cyndi Lauper and John Lennon to Madonna and Lady Gaga. Even Marilyn Monroe wasn’t immune to Tokyo’s mystifying wonders—the Hollywood icon spent her honeymoon there with Joe DiMaggio in 1954.

Naturally, what with the slew of archetypal designers hailing from Tokyo (Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto, and Issey Miyake, to name just a few), the city’s fashion scene is downright captivating. CR even recently launched CR Fashion Book Japan, which hit newsstands last month. But it’s Tokyo’s pulsing, electrifying nightlife where the real fun is. From the famous Kabukicho district in Shinjuku and the glamorous Roppongi ward in Minato to more off-the-beaten path gems like the Trump Room and the Alexa Chung-approved Narukiyo Izakaya in Shibuya, the city is abound with fascinating watering holes packed with even more fascinating people. Below, find CR’s picks for what to wear on a night out in Tokyo.
