Here i am 3:50am in the morning trying to fall asleep after 10 cups of tea… being sick is no fun!
In spite of my current insomnia, i was able to catch up on my dose of korean trends on Gmarket. This is a very dangerous site for me because i ADORE these clothes offered by these small korean designers. And not just a few, but ALOT of them at that. It was amazing to see how women dress up in korea. No matter if your going to the market, or to the bar to meet some friends, women look perfect head-to-toe. I pulled out some of the pictures from the site and it gives a pretty good idea of how korean women dress every single day. The influence of trends i would say comes from all over the world, mainly western trends and alot of european trends that hit the runway before entering street wear.
From my observations, no matter what season or style, korean clothes have a very simliar line of foundational trend it generally follows. If i had to describe korean style it would be Clean, Simple, Fitted, and has a sense of Chic-ness lol if that makes any sense…a subtle thing i’ve noticed was that loose-fitted clothes, although are still “baggy” they tend to fit proportionate to a persons body.
I miss those underground shopping (connected mainly in city subways) malls they have where clothes would range literally from $5-$30!!! And you would think its terrible quality and styling but I cannot be happier with all of my purchases because of the amazing fit and lasting quality 🙂
Oh and dont get me started on the food…..*drooool*
