The trend of globalization has led everyone inspired and influenced. Whether its food, clothing, business, services, trends etc., anything trendy in one country is sure to impact another. This travel of ideas from west to east and vice-versa has brought major changes in lifestyle and styling and left us with a number of never-ending options to choose from.
Among all these things that we saw forming and changing, the best thing we got from other countries is their fashion and styling trends. The best of it has come from the East Asian country, Korea.
Every k-fashion buff knows how trendy, comfortable, cute and amazing this fashion statement is with all those turtlenecks, oversized or checkered attires.
Here are 7 styling ideas that every k-fashion addict would want to try and not only the buffs, but also those who are looking for a change in their styling in this trendy era.
1. Street Styling
Korean fashion provides the coziest, trendiest and unique dressing for street fashion.
This includes oversized tees in which those with long sleeves look the best. They can be paired with striped jeans, wide-legged pants or palazzos or some pleated skirt to complete your laid-back look.
A striped tee would look especially good when tugged in a pair of lace-up shorts.
Purple is the favorite color in this fashion trend. You can try an oversized ultraviolet tee with a matching pleated skirt. And if not the skirt, you can try it with a pair of wide leg shorts with a sash.
Graphic tees are the new sexy. You can also get yourself a customized t-shirt where you can choose the design of your shirt from the options or create one yourself.
If it’s cold outside, try pairing your tee with a pair of checkered shorts and matching pocketed blazer which would give you a cute yet sophisticated look.
A skort is another up-to-the-minute item you must keep ready in your closet. Pairing it with a matching single button blazer is the new k-trend.
Drawcord shorts provide causal panache while pleated ones give a tinge of formality to the look. Choose in reference to your mood or the setting in which you plan to try it out.
2. Winter Fashion
There is a huge range of stylish knit tops and sweaters available for every K-fashion aficionado. These can be paired with the leggings, skirts, pants, and socks present in a number of designs and styles.
To start with, boatneck sweater is a favorite of Korean women. It’s both warm and chic which makes it highly preferable to many. A wrap-up sweater is similar with negligible alteration at the neck. Tracksuits and other fitness apparels can now be worn as a cute daytime outfit.
A K-fashion addict knows how it’s different from western fashion. They don’t put much emphasis on deep-neck and low cut tops or other dressing that accentuates their cleavage. Turtleneck has been their typical style since long. Thus, turtleneck wool-blend sweaters are among their favorite clothing to wrap up in winters.
Try putting on a stylish scarf too. Here also you have a number of options: fringed scarf, plaid scarf, cashmere scarf, knit scarf, cotton scarf or simply printed scarves.
Over the knee socks are atypical of Korean fashion. They can be easily paired with a mini pleated skirt or a midi. The socks can be replaced from colored tights providing never-ending options of color for you to match with your clothes.
Besides it all, long padded coats can’t be missed on when we talk of k winter fashion. Along with adding style to your simple clothing, they work the best in warding off the cold.
