A Tokyo stree style often mistaken for fRuIts that is identifiable through the use of toys as acessories to create an aura of playfulness and childhood. The toys are often very colorful, blink, make noises, and are closely related to youung children. Unlike fRuIts, decoras wear mostly simple clothes and endeavor to appear as kawaii as possible by decorating themselves excessively with accessories used with clothing that is bright, fuzzy, and innocent. Shoes are often oversized and shirts are almost always too tight. Females try to look as young as possible by wearing babydoll dresses, Mary Jane shoes, bows, ribbons, and colorful stockings. Their hair is usually dyed pink, blonde, or auburn and worn in pigtails or curled excessively. They are very similar to the gothic lolita style of fashion save for the goth. Males mimic anime characters, for they attempt to look like cartoon characters. Males wear small shirts with Engrish logos, sailor shirts, pajama bottoms, large pants, Mary Jane shoes, and have their hair more colorful than females but less styled, as their hair is usually combed to the side or minimally spiked. Popular items that decoras use to decorate themselves with include: Hello Kitty merchandise, Pokemon merchandise, Powerpuff Girl merchandise, pacifiers, excessive jewelry such as necklaces and bracelets, big plastic rings, an abundance of keychains, stuffed animals of various sorts, and obscure toyss. Popular items with female decoras are dolls and flowers. Popular items with male decoras are inflatable guitars and neon plastic waterguns. Decoras seldom wear makeup, although mascara is not uncommon. Instead, they use cute stickers or use face paints to paint flowers and smiley faces on their cheeks, oftentimes adorned with glitter. Decoras are not unlike a kandee kid and only differ in that they dress to look as cute as possible as opposed to dressing for a subculture. The origins of this style is unknown and ranges in popularity in Japan greatly. Most assume it was spawned as a result of the "virtual pet" craze, subsided for a few years, and is now gaining popularity once again.

Inititially, a Japanese magazine showcasing Tokyo street fashion that later evolved into a fashion genre all it's own. Often mistaken for kandee kid ravers, fRuIts are identified by bright colors in hair and clothes, flamboyant to subtle makeup, cutesy inclinations that mimic cartoon or anime characters, and intricate, mismatched clothes that somehow form a coherence in the lack of one. Colorful legwarmers, platform shoes, temporary tattoos of cherries, cat ears, bright wigs, and beaded jewelry are all common in the fRuIts style. There are more female fRuIts than male, however, there are plenty of male fRuIts around in Tokyo Male fRuIts are often less photographed and thus less known than the females; this is mostly due to the fact that the female fRuIts appear more flamboyant and interesting than the males. As opposed to most Tokyo street fashions, fRuIts mostly accumulate their style from themselves and homemade items rather than buying them already made at the stores. This is mostly due to the great emphasis on self-expression through complete randomness. Fruits don't necessarily have guidelines to follow like other Tokyo street fashions. Instead, the fRuIts style is simple to identify when seen amongst other fashions because it is so unique.
