In the last year, a surprising new fashion trend has emerged among teenage girls in Japan, “ヲタクコーデ," or "otaku coordinate." It mimics the stereotypical "un-stylish" anime nerd. The three staples of this style are checkered shirts, bandanas, and large glasses. It tends to also includes braided pigtails and loose, belted high-waisted jeans with the shirt tucked in. Frequently, the girls adopting this style seem to dress up with their friends and go out together in groups.
