5 Korean Fashion Staple Pieces To Upgrade Your Wardrobe Instantly

Everyone needs #4 in their life.

These staple pieces can be implemented into a variety of looks and compliment what’s already in your wardrobe. Despite being Korean fashion essentials, they can be found in a variety of places. Read on to steal the trends idols rock at the airport!

1. Denim Skirt

Denim skirts are a basic piece that can allow you to create various types of looks. Tucking in an oversized graphic tee and pairing with tennis shoes creates a sporty yet cute vibe like TWICE‘s Nayeon.

For a chic alternative, follow IU and pair with a blouse and heels.

Bright girly colors can work to transition you into the spring and summer seasons.

2. Chunky Sneakers

A badass pair of chunky sneakers can accentuate most outfits. Add them to a cozy look like BTS’ J-Hope

…Or make a loud statement to a swaggy look like Seventeen‘s The8.

Similarly, adding chunky sneakers to an otherwise casual outfit can elevate your look.

3. Baggy Pants

Goodbye skinny jeans and the discomfort they brought us. Wearing your jeans oversized but cinched at the waist is super cute.

A high-waisted look creates a flattering silhouette.

Cool girl points added if you create some holes like Red Velvet‘s Joy.

4. Teddy Bear Coat

Just like the name suggests, teddy bear coats, also known as fleece jackets, are super soft, warm, and cozy. They come in a variety of colors, like BTS Jin‘s bubblegum coat.

SuperM‘s Kai wears a sweatshirt with a similar texture (and teddy bear ears) for the same vibe!

Vibrant red is a unique and bold color with a feminine flare. Don’t be afraid of it.

5. Structured Pieces

Layering with structured pieces creates a sharp look. Blazers, leather jackets…

…and even peacoats fall into this category. Experiment with different lengths to transition from the colder weather.

Play with patterns and colors such as all-over printed logos and pinstripes!
