6 K-Drama winter fashion that we love
The holidays are approaching, and boy do I love the cycle of outfits we see this season? When you switch from comfortable knitwear to glamorous and sparkling dresses, you are not the only one! With the cooler weather, layering and staying warm becomes more important than ever. That doesn’t mean you should be completely buried under thick layers because, after all, Christmas parties are the time to shine bright! If you need winter style inspiration, here are six looks from K-dramas that are sure to make you look chic this season!
1. Cozy #Cottagecore
The #cottagecore aesthetic represents an idealized slow-living lifestyle. You have most likely seen this translated into fashion through whimsical prairie dresses and gingham prints. Appreciating the more rural elements of modern society was also one of the biggest trends this year and it’s not too late to jump on the bandwagon if you haven’t already! Seo Dal Mi (Suzy) does this perfectly in tvN’s “Start-Up” with a blouse in a peasant style that lies under a gray midi dress. The look is professional, stylish and comfortable (bonus points also for layering!).
2. Power pantsuits
Seo Dal Mis Sister Won In Jae (Kang han na), may be a difficult character, but there’s no denying that her work outfits are always a scene stealer! Jae is a certified power woman in the workplace and she definitely has a wardrobe that goes with strong statement pieces and tailored pant suits. One of my favorites should be the set that she wears as a presenter in a lecture. The clean lines and composite look definitely help In Jae project a confident and successful image.
3. The sweater vest
Grandfather style sweater vests are the style trend I’ve never seen, oh how the tables have turned! Whether over a simple T-shirt or a thicker lower layer, pullover vests work as long as there is a side-by-side relationship between the vest and the layer below in the collar and the sleeve lengths. Han Ae Ri (Lee Se Young) from MBC’s “Kairos“ Presents a neutrally tinted sweater vest over a simple T-shirt for a comfortable and trendy fit. It’s a pretty neat (and super cozy!) Trend for winter.
4. Animal prints
Animal prints take over the wardrobes again every fall and winter swirling through town, and this year is no exception. For a colorful twist like An Jeong Ha’s (Park so damn it) Style from “Record of Youth”.
5. Billowing sleeves
These were a staple this year – huge billowing sleeves that add an ethereal feel to any outfit it fits in. Take a note from “Birthcare Center” Character Lee Roo Da’s (Choi ri) and combine it with some leather floors to improve the edge!
6. The leather blazer
In keeping with the general mood of relaxed comfort, leather blazers and outerwear are on the rise again this season. Not only do they add a touch of cool rocker chic, they are also highly functional in winter. Check out how EXIDs Hani designed a leather bomber in “The Spies Who Loved Me” to portray a cool, ingenious hacker!
