South Korea has been gaining popularity as a fashion hub because of the rise of Korean pop culture, more famously known as K-POP. Korean fashion is usually in pastel colors, uses oversized clothing, and adds various elements to their outfits. If you are looking for ways to add elements of Korean fashion into your winter style, you don’t need to look any further. Here are five Korean inspired winter fashion trends:
Leather bustier and dresses – Leather is easily one of the most common fabrics worn during the winter. It has also been one of the most popular winterwear fabrics for a long time. Lately, K-POP stars have been seen sporting leather in the form of bustiers and corsets, especially during concerts. Leather bustiers and corsets are a great way to be stylish, keep up with the trends, and still not get goosebumps every time you step out.
Statement sweaters – Korean fashion is known for its use of statement accessories. Sweaters are a great way to layer your outfits during the winter. Styling a simple, monochromatic outfit with a statement sweater can quickly elevate your outfit and make it seem like you have put a lot of thought into your look.
Statement scarves – Scarves are a traditional winter accessory, but Korea has come up with a way to incorporate them into our funky, eccentric, and edgy fashion sense. Statement scarves are a fun way to amp up any outfit, accessorize your winter outfits, and remain true to your style.
Oxfords – Oxford boots are making a comeback this winter season, and it’s all thanks to Korean fashion. Oxford boots are classy, formal, and look like royalty. You can style them with either monochromatic socks or contrasting printed socks, and keep your feet warm for the winter.
Sweatshirts over formal shirts – Layering is a very common technique to style winter wear. Korea has shown that sweatshirts can also be used formally by layering them under formal shirts. Sweatshirts over formal shirts can be worn to semi-formal and casual events, make you look chic, and suit every body type. Style your sweatshirts over a white formal shirt and enjoy all the compliments you receive!
If you are a fan of K-POP and enjoy their fashion sense, then you can certainly incorporate these trends into your winter style. Winter in UAE is short-lived, so make sure to have fun, creatively explore various fashion avenues, and dress up to paint the town red!
