Korean Style: As Seen By Yuna Lee
With short, dark brown hair framing her small face, Seoulite and fashion blogger, Yuna Lee’s sweet demeanor sharply contrasts against her style: edgy with a scoop of girly and a touch of glam. Anyone who has roamed Seoul’s paths and alleyways can attest to the average Koreans’ amazing sense of fashion, styled anyway from minimalist to straight from a K-Pop video. For those anxious to learn more, keep reading as Yuna shows us what Korean fashion really is all about.
Most city-dwellers agree that there can never be too much black… Or leather. In a color exuding chic and timeless vibes, Yuna shows off a Korean twist with an outfit that can take you from dinner to dancing. Despite wearing all black and leather, Yuna maintains a girly aura with a floral-printed leather jacket and an a-line leather skirt decorated with cutouts across the hem. She keeps it simple elsewhere: A basic shirt hiding underneath a jacket, a simple necklace hanging around her neck, and a couple of rings to adorn her delicate fingers.
Many Koreans enjoy wearing outfits combining elegance and effortlessness that take them from work, lunch, and possibly the unexpected. Yuna shows off a polished and simplistic mixture by beginning with a short-sleeve black dress. Then adding a statement necklace takes this outfit to a new height of elegance, but the warm, oversized leopard print cardigan brings a splash of casualness. Yuna layers a few rings and pulls her hair back to push the outfit further into a casual feel. However, with a tug and release of her hair and removing her cardigan, she will emit a whole new vibe instantly.
Dressed for shopping in one of Seoul’s many fashion districts, Yuna creates a casual, yet detailed outfit. A black zippered top with a sheer geometric pattern draped across her thin shoulders, she embodies the aura of a Korean woman–subtle sexiness. Paired with textured black skinnies, black booties, and large purple earrings, she maintains her edge while keeping her comfort. Let’s face it: Going in and out of fitting rooms and piling clothes a mile high, shopping needs an outfit to withstand the storm.
If there is one thing Koreans know how to do, it is how to work a glamours look. Wearing a navy top with large leather pockets and black skinnies, Yuna could have easily ended her outfit there. Instead, she threw on a gorgeous beige and white striped faux fur coat, instantly covering her in a catwalk feel. Accessorizing with feminine necklaces, black buckled high heel booties, and a black clutch, she is ready for anything. With a pop of pink lips, she carries glam into the streets of Seoul.
