Woylaa.com – Korean fashion style has a rule: make sure your getup interesting even though you wear completely down to earth or practical clothing items. Big gives you really good lesson in Korean fashion tips: you do not always have to wear too many accessories if you can use your own clothing items as accessories.
In Korean fashion, accessories are important to spice up even the most basic or generic appearances, especially when you see how hip and trendy the women in K-Pop videos are. However, not everyone loves wearing too many accessories like earrings, bracelets, or necklaces. So, how do you spice up your appearance without wearing jewelries or accessories? Choose clothing items with embellishments.
Strategic embellishments can make the difference between looking boring and looking fabulous with minimum accessories. First, take a look at this dress:
This knee length dress is actually quite usual, with demure cream color and without any bling or something. However, the neckline is embellished with floral patterns, and the hemlines are cut with upward direction, giving more emphasis to the neckline. This is a great replacement for necklace if you do not like wearing it. However, since the dress itself has demure color and rather simple style, you may want to pair it with something more flattering, like white or black open toed sandals, and red or gold bags.
Or maybe, this ensemble:
As you can see, this is actually just a regular combination between t-shirt, black mini skirt and satchel bag. However, the neckline of the tee is embellished (that is not necklace!). It can be pretty hard to find this kind of t-shirt at department store, but you can look for this kind of outfit online or even make your own embellishments, like using crystal beads. This combination is quite casual and you can pair this with platform, wedges or sneakers. Replace the skirt with denim pants or black leggings if you are not comfortable with mini skirt.
Meanwhile, for more office worthy top, you can choose this:
This is a top from Nice Claup, worn by Gil Da Ran character in Big. As you can see, while the top itself is quite simple with two layers of thin materials and white color, the collar is richly embellished with colorful patterns. This makes necklace and earrings are practically needless. You can pair this with black pencil skirt and nice tote bag for office or other formal occasion.
Embellish with Patterns!
Outfits with rich patterns are another Korean fashion tips to basically embellish many parts of your body, and making rich accessories almost unnecessary. For example, you can wear a bright red t-shirt with unique patterns and simply pair it with red head band and small earrings:
Do not be afraid of experimenting with patterns! Wear a short cutout dress with rich patterns and add a simple satchel or tote bag, and you do not have to wear accessories if you do not want to. Just add a pair of pumps and tote bag and you are done. Like in this scene when Jang Ma Ri clearly just sports really thin bracelet and simple hairclip.
