Mori in Japanese means "forest" and a Mori Girl (森ガール) is a girl who looks like she lives amongst cedar and pine trees. She's part Little Red Ridinghood, part Marie Antoinette pastoral fantasy, part Alice in Wonderland...The Mori Girl's fictional archetype was declared to be Hagu, the primal, pretty art student from Honey and Clover...According to this list, the Mori Girl likes loose dresses and skirts, seldom wears trousers...wears A-line skirts and dresses, likes the style of little children, has a taste for dresses or blouses which look like smocks...likes fur, knitwear, fluffy hats and ear-muffs...likes old things...leggings or tights, basic round-toed flat shoes...likes fairy tales, is pale-skinned, with loose hair. The Mori Girl isn't a Lolita, but is girly. Her favourite shops are old-fashioned general stores. She's a bit of a collector, and likes to find cute books in bookshops. Furniture shops and handmade things excite her. She vaguely aims to visit Scandinavia one day. There's something soft -- almost transparent -- about the Mori Girl. As she goes by, you sense the subtle scent of flowers.-imomus
