Korean fashion designers have always stayed ahead of the pack in terms of inventiveness and trendsetting. 2022 was no exception. The fashion trends for the year had been interesting, to say the least! So, for the Korean fashion enthusiasts among us, we’ve compiled a list of all the looks that stood out to us.
One thing Koreans have made clearer than ever is that suits are made for everyone. Whether you want to go colourful or are fine sticking with more severe tones like beige or grey, pants or skirt, a suit is perfect for almost any occasion. Consider an oversized blazer paired with tighter bottoms. The person wearing it will appear more fashionable, dynamic, and attractive.
2. Floral dresses
Perfect for spring but lovely at any time of the year, a good floral dress is undoubtedly the prettiest trend thus far. You can go bright, dark, or even neutral – a floral dress is highly versatile. Find out what suits your vibe the best and take it from there!
3. Knitted vests
More suited for colder weather, a knitted vest is retro and reminiscent of your grandparents’ era. And yet, they’ve come back with a bang! A knitted vest can come in any style: solid colours, argyle, or plaid. This is the perfect option if you’re the kind of person who likes to experiment with layering. Wear them on top of your high-necked tops or dresses and look your chic best.
4. Denim/leather jackets
Jackets will always be in, no matter the time of the year. This time, the denim jacket has made its comeback. You can pair it with a pair of jeans for an effortlessly casual look. There are also endless ways to accessorise a denim jacket. You can combine it with bucket hats or thick, chunky sunglasses to achieve this effect. Get warmed up while looking cool and stylish with a denim jacket.
5. Polka dots
Polka dots are and will always be timeless. This year, polka-dot dresses and skirts are especially in vogue. Give your outfit that splash of freshness with a fun dotted outfit.
6. Wide-legged pants
The wide-legged pant has become a bona fide classic in South Korea. If mom jeans don’t do it for you, maybe a wide-legged pant will. While relaxed and comfortable, these pants can also lend you a touch of sophistication when needed. They come in all sorts of styles so you can pick one depending on the look you’re trying to go for.
