What Is Korean Fashion, and why is it popular worldwide?

There are many fashion hubs across the world, but among all of them, the leading one is the capital of South Korea, Seoul. No doubt, Korean culture has great fashion, but it is getting bigger and popular nowadays, and this isn’t getting down soon. Seoul, the capital of South Korea, hosts the most popular fashion week twice in a year. 

The designers and fashionistas are coming and participating more and more from all around the world. The fashionistas are known for their outstanding fashion sense that they invent and introduce to the world for both men and women and mainly the mens hanbok, which is unisex now. 

Let us know in detail what Korean fashion is like:

The crucial traditional values in Korea are a sense of community and harmony, and these two are popularly shown in Korean fashion as well. There are thousands of clothing stores in Korean, but most of them sell a similar style of fashionable items. The main reason for the similar clothing in stores, mainly the smaller ones is that they use local manufacturers. This limits the variety of clothing to choose from.

However, this doesn’t mean that each person in Korea wears similar outfits. Some of them may share some clothes, but everyone has their different styles. Let us now explore some different Korean fashion styles:

Cover your chest and shoulders

Koreans are not quite religious, and their values are entrenched in conservatism. Thus it is expected by women to look classy and pure.  It depends on the Korean women to be revealing mainly in the upper part of the body. We can say: Cover your chest, shoulders, and stomach. Also, don’t wear that are backless either. 

With this trend growing, you may see only a few women wearing tank tops or backless tops, while some are in love with cold shoulder and off-shoulder tops. The crop tops are of a great trend in Korea, but the chest remains covered every time. The crop tops are a popular match with shorts, skirts, and high-waisted pants. 

The Hongdae Street Style

The Hongdae Street Style has become quite common and isn’t only limited for those hanging out. Girls that are in the early twenties love this street style. It is a relaxed look, combining the aesthetics of hip hop and rock. Particularly, the top should be baggy or oversized; men also like this style with shorts and relaxed fit pants. 

This street style is a unisex look; girls wear skirts and dress with this style that goes well. This look is stylish for both men and women, and girls love to mix more colors instead of sticking with a particular color every time. You can order this with online malls of Koreans or can get it in stores of Hongdae’s streets. 

Oversizing

Korean girls and women love wearing oversized clothes to conceal their forms. No matter when we talk about pants, tops, dresses, and coats, oversized clothes are quite popular. Korean girls combine the oversized item with a tight bottom, whether it’s a blouse, sweater, or a loose t-shirt.
