What sets apart South Korean fashion from others is that South Korean fashion is specific. There is always one element to their clothing that is highlighted over the rest, one element around which all others are based. This can be any one of the many elements of clothing: blazers, shirts, skirts, dresses, etc.
With the recent rise in the popularity of K-pop sensation BTS and k-dramas, South Korean fashion brands have gained a lot of followers who want to look like their favorite stars. If you are one of them too, then you are in the right place. Below we are going through 6 things that you need to have if you are searching for that breezy South Korean fashion look.
- Casual Blazer
These blazers are usually meant for the office but you will often notice people wearing a blazer even outside their offices. The reason behind this is that blazers are a part of everyday clothing too. South Koreans will wear blazers not only in their offices but also while going out with friends.
You needn’t buy a costly corporate blazer to complete this look. A casual approach is what you need. Pair it with a pair of jeans or trousers and you have got the perfect match. Tailor the blazer to your fit and it becomes a classy look that both men and women can sport equally well.
- Ripped jeans
A ripped jean is a serious business, one wrong move and you can spoil your entire look. The best way to pull it off is to keep everything from top to bottom simple and make the denim you wear the highlight of your outfit.
The problem with wearing denim is that you don’t have a fixed set of rules that allow you to wear it well. It all depends on how you carry it. Having an ample amount of confidence will surely help you sell the ripped jeans look but if you are not comfortable, we recommend letting this one go.
- High-Waist Mini Skirt
The traditional school uniform has evolved to become a part of the daily life of people. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to accessorize much to pull off this look. Pair it with a simple button-down shirt, and it looks elegant. A long sleeve top and loafers go along with it as well. Be it a casual evening out or a trip to the mall, you are good to go.
- Ruffled Floral Dress
South Koreans love a feminine look. You can find this hint across all their dressing range. South Korean women are praised for their excellent fashion sense, and one of the essentials that make them worthy of such praise is the ease with which they flaunt a floral dress.
It is a light sundress that looks beautiful in any weather. You can wear it by itself in summers, or you can pull an oversized cardigan over it in the winters. It is an all-season classic and a must-have for getting that quintessential South Korean fashion look.
In case you haven’t been paying attention to K-pop or South Korean dramas, one of the essentials of South Korean fashion is having an amazing pair of sneakers that you can rock daily. And there can be no undercutting this one. Sneakers are a part of daily attire for South Koreans unless you have to go to a business meeting!
Sneakers go a long way when it comes to complementing your look. If you cannot afford to invest in a quality pair of sneakers at the moment, then save for a while. Agreed, a decent pair of sneakers does cost a good sum but it is a worthwhile investment.
- Oversized Shirts
If you are looking to get that South Korean look going for you, you need to have at least a few oversized shirts in your closet. It should not be too difficult to procure. You are not looking for any particular type or brand of clothing; all you need to do is, buy two sizes larger the next time you go to a store. I am telling you from personal experience that wearing such shirts is a blessing.
