Korean fashion, or K-fashion, hosts an excess of trendsetting styles today due to the rise in popularity of K-dramas and K-pop within South Korea and across the globe. This phenomenon characterized as “Hallyu”, or Korean wave, has helped catapult K-fashion to the forefront since the 90s, with winter fashion being the most lively, intricate, yet simple season of chic aesthetics.

Citizens of South Korea are always on-trend, with many people always sporting spectacular winter outfits and cute warm clothes in the East Asian country. Here are 10 Korean winter fashion trends you’ll want to try!

1. Oversized Tops

Korean winter fashion trends have to incorporate oversized tops. We’re talking oversized blazers, hoodies, pullovers, etc. This is an eye-catching attribute to brands and styles within K-fashion. It provides comfort and function, not to mention this is a common style that pervades many cultures outside of South Korea. K-fashion does take it to a different level, however, with all genders living for the trend and sporting oversized everything during the winter season. When it comes to styling oversized tops, it’s all about form and balance, so trying pairing it with a short, form-fitting skirt to make them look chic.

2. Owning a Bold Blazer

While an oversized blazer is a staple item, owning a bold blazer is a statement item. In general, blazers are worn by South Koreans over clothing, but thick, bold blazers help keep individuals warm and super cool at the same time. Bold blazers are all about chunky and trendy patterns, exquisite detailing, and bright colors. In fact, the colors of these blazers take inspiration from K-pop as it evades the more monochrome look of the everyday person.

3. Athleisure

A breakout look from Korean winter fashion trends is athleisure. A word that combines athletics and leisure, athleisure is defined as wearing activewear outside of athletic affairs. While this trend has been seen all over the world, athleisure has definitely taken South Korea by storm and won’t be leaving the winter K-fashion scene very soon. Wearing sweats and yoga pants has given many people the opportunity to mix and match with their outfits and truly experiment with their fashion. The cross between comfortability and style has been salient with this trend, which is why K-fashion has adopted it for good.
