As an up-and-coming fashion capital, Seoul has a wide-reaching influence around Asia and the world for its culture, where style is no exception. Seoul Fashion Week is a relatively new player in the high fashion circuit, but with burgeoning labels showing the best that they’ve got, the capital has caught the eye of fashionphiles around the world.
With a unique culture that puts a premium on outward appearances, South Koreans definitely take dressing to a T seriously. Already in the midst of spring with milder weather, we’re seeing lighter fare in sheer pieces and breezier layers. Epitomized by simplicity and nothing too crazy, the outfits are minimalist in nature with neutral color palettes and looser silhouettes, tinged with street and sportswear staples.
Distinguishing itself from the high-heel clad high fashion bunch frequenting Milan and Paris, Seoul boasts outfits that are comfortable, with sneakers the preferred choice of footwear and basics pieces essential.
