10 Anime Waifus With The Best Fashion Sense

Fubuki from One Punch Man. Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. Olivier Armstrong from Fullmetal Alchemist

Anime waifus are fan favorites who have some of the best qualities that anime characters can have. Fan favorites tend to have diverse personalities: some are kind and self-effacing, and others can be crafty and bordering on ruthless. Either way, they’re nearly always intelligent and talented.

Anime waifus are known for their beauty, but their aesthetics range from conventionally pretty to punk and haute couture styles. Their outfit choices and personal style add to their mystique. Some female characters stick to one specific hairstyle and dress, while others have a wide selection of styled ensembles they like to wear. Both types of waifu are as fashionable as they are lovable.

10 Nico Robin Makes A Great Cowgirl

One Piece

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>

Nico Robin is one of the most intelligent characters in One Piece, with a varying array of outfits. She keeps her dark hair always in the same long cut with blunt bangs and tends to go for a peach sarong skirt with a cropped blue top, but she also wears beautifully-tailored mini dresses and various overcoats, mixing long lines with short.

Nico’s purple cowgirl getup is probably her best look. She wears a laced bustier top and fringed miniskirt for a base and completes the look with a campy, long white overcoat and a white cowgirl hat.

9 Rin Tohsaka Knows Her Color Palette

Fate/Stay Night

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Rin Tohsaka Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Rin Tohsaka’s wardrobe in the Fate/Stay Night series is curated in a theme of reds, white, black, and browns. Even her bathing suit is scarlet, which makes sense because the warm-toned red is good with her dark hair and muted eye color.

Rin can be tomboyish in personality, but not really in her dress. For casual wear, she prefers a long-sleeved red blouse, a black skirt, and black tights. Her best statement piece by far is her red trench coat, which she pairs with gloves, a white turtleneck, black leggings, and tan knee-high boots.

8 Fubuki Takes Great Care In Curating Her Personal Style

One-Punch Man

Fubuki of One-Punch Man wears a blend of dark greens from her deep emerald hair to her fern-hued eyes to her forest green, long-sleeve dress. Though simple, her gown has amazing movement. It hugs her upper body and hips in a way that lends her a balletic grace, with a skirt that fans out into a billowing circle.

Small accents of white complete her killer ensemble, including a double strand of pearls, and a white fur coat which she prefers to wear draped over her shoulders. She wears monochromatic green just as well as her sister Tatsumaki, but manages to have her own tone, with subtle stylistic differences in hair and accessories.

7 Zero Two Has The Best Hair & Eyes With A Subdued Complementary Outfit

Darling In The Franxx

Conventionally speaking, pastel pink and bright red should clash and look terrible together. For Zero Two in Darling in the Franxx, however, her rosy pink hair, crimson horns, and red-rimmed eyes (which look almost like red shadow eyeliner, at a glance) work together beautifully.

Since her hair and eyes are so singular, the rest of her outfit has a somewhat neutral color palette, but is well-structured, rather than flowy or billowy. Her customary outfit is a white military overcoat and boots, dark leggings, and sometimes a red bodysuit or red military uniform.

6 Olivier Mira Armstrong Has A Commanding Presence

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Sometimes fashion and self-expression aren’t just about choice in clothing articles, but about the way a person wears their clothes and the presence they bring into a room, as Olivier Armstrong shows in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Olivier has a naturally commanding presence and manages to look unique and domineering in her military-issue uniform.

Looking unique in a uniform isn’t easy, but Olivier does so with just the way she holds herself. Armstrong’s muscular build fills out the uniform well, highlighting the length of her strong limbs, even when she’s lounging in a chair or staring down her nose at someone. Her waist-length blonde hair also matches the navy blue of her coat.

5 Nana Osaki Is The Queen Of Punk


<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Nana Osaki From Nana

Nana Osaki of NANA wears authentic punk attire, drawing inspiration from the ’80s and ’90s. Street punks of that time wore denim, leather, chains, distressed over-shirts and flannels, metal studs, and steel-toed workman’s boots. Those items were popular because they were readily available and affordable, worn by regular working stiffs.

Punks would add their personality to the clothes by further distressing them, sewing pieces together, and adding patches, among other personal touches. Nana’s incredible wardrobe is a love letter to punk, from her plaid skirts and torn fishnets to her trusty leather jacket. She also mixes textures well, pairing lace camisoles with velvet blouses, and adding leather accents.

4 Tatsumaki Wears An Amazing Dress

One-Punch Man

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Tatsumaki from One-Punch Man.

Tatsumaki, one of the Psychic Sisters of One-Punch Man has one iconic look, but she only needs one because it is pure perfection. Her ivy-green hair matches her bright eyes, and she wears a long, inky black dress with a high collar and long sleeves which fits her form until it reaches her hips, then splays out into long slashes of fabric.

Her overall style gives her the appearance of something between magic school professor and Addams Family member. Though she can be arrogant and standoffish, which maybe isn’t what one would think of as a stereotypical waifu personality, she does have a softer side for those who earn it.

3 Bulma Is A ’90s Icon

Dragon Ball

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Bulma Brief In Dragon Ball

No one embodies ’80s and ’90s fashion quite like Bulma in Dragon Ball. No one else could pull off pastel teal hair, an orchid-purple neckerchief, and a pink t-shirt dress bearing one’s own name, but Bulma manages to with ease.

Another one of Bulma’s god-tier ensembles is her cherry red sweetheart neckline mini dress paired with a yellow scarf. Bulma dresses ultra feminine when she feels like it, and more neutral and more rugged when the occasion calls for it. Her more outdoorsy, khaki-based outfits still have fitted lines and interesting choices made with the pant-leg lengths.

2 Jolyne Cujoh Makes Neon Green Hair Look Fantastic

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Jolyne Cujoh in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Jolyne Cujoh comes from a long line of style icons in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, but she wears the weight of her legacy well, bright yellow-green hair and all. Her best outfit by far is her green tweed pants with a matching butterfly-shaped top of the same color and pattern. Neat-heeled boots hug her ankles and chunky buckles wrap up her calves to reach her knees.

The shade of Jolyne’s neon green hair is echoed in her lip color, which pulls the entire outfit together. Sometimes she throws on a teal over-shirt over the butterfly top, making her a monochromatic green dream.

1 Faye Valentine’s Opera Ensemble Is Superior

Cowboy Bebop

Faye Valentine of Cowboy Bebop is best known for her gold short-shorts, yellow pleather crop top with a popped collar, slouchy red over-shirt, stockings, and heeled boots. This iconic getup is a far cry from her best look, though.

Faye shows how well formal attire suits her when she dresses for the opera in Session #5, “Ballad of Fallen Angels.” Her overcoat is a long trench coat style in olive green with wide black lapels, and an orange chiffon wrap around her shoulders. The main part of her ensemble is a long blood-red cocktail dress.
