Over the past few years, Korean culture has really started grow in its popularity, especially in terms of the entertainment industry, their make-up, skincare, and their fashion. Korean fashion has established a brand for itself and is easily identifiable where its association with the adjectives: edgy, daring, relaxed and fashion-forward are inevitable. Korean Fashion is so favorable that other parts of the world have caught onto the trend and online retail shops like ZALORA have their own special category of Korean brands.
Upon browsing through Koreans’ many outfits, I've found that they are not afraid to be bold and break rules like pairing a loose top with loose bottoms, instead of balancing a loose piece with a tight piece. It isn't about balance and proportions anymore, it's about creating unique art through clothes. Their ability to breach the “set” rules of fashion and still look well put-together and just aesthetically pleasing overall blows my mind into infinite proportions.
Even though I am not a fan of their kimchi, I am definitely a fan of their style. I’ve taken inspiration from them and went with an edgy yet still sweet look, a juxtaposition that they have perfected to a tee. I centered my outfit around the polka dot print top that I picked up from Lialia Boutique, one of the Korean brands that ZALORA carries and paired it with casual black and white basics. I finished it off with their signature gradient red lip and thin cat eyes to get more of a Korean vibe.
What do you think of my outfit?
