Woylaa.com – Korean style is all about style, but the basic principle is usually quite down to earth and wearable. However, in Korean drama Bel Ami, IU’s character Kim Bo Tong sports seemingly the craziest pattern and color combo, even since the very first episode. Her Korean women style might be crazy enough even for Koreans, but she makes it amazing. Although there are other female characters that dress elegantly and with sophistication, apparently IU’s clothing combo wins over the hearts of the quirky combo lovers.
Korean Women Style: Crazy with Prints and Colors
IU’s character, Bo Tong, is a quirky girl type character, and it shows by her always eye catching, head turning color and pattern combinations. She also shows some print clashes in her outfits, and she rocks them with confidence. For example, in one scene, she is shown wearing oversized, long top with bright blue color and pink polkadots all over it. As if the pattern and color are not enough, she does print clash by wearing black pajama pants with smaller polkadots. Granted, this is a combination she wears at home, but the print clash works great.
Another scene shows her wearing pink sport jacket with floral top (actually as short dress) and brightly colored bag swarmed with patterns. Luckily, she joins all the ensemble items into one coherent getup with more demure purple pants and white shoes. To spice up her appearance, she adds black choker with pink flower accent. While she looks really trendy, her style and color clash is something that definitely must be tried with high self confidence.
Another scene shows her wearing print clash: red and blue top with pink coat, patterned black leggings and sneakers. Print clash is actually common trait in Korean women style to make them more fashionable even in down to earth getup, but there are still basic notions. Make sure that your print clash involves one brightly colored printed item and one which is more demure to balance everything.
Demure Clothing and Quirky Accessories
We have addressed IU’s flower choker before, but the best thing about that checker is that you really can use it to spice up a demure outfit. For example, if you are in the mood of wearing black, red or white sweater without any patterns or embellishments, simply add that flower choker to rock the simple outfit. And if you are like IU in this scene, you may want to pair a simple, demure fuzzy blue sweater with a bag that shapes like big red lips.
Quirky accessory is another important trait in Korean women style. If you wear demure outfit, you can instantly make your whole appearance less boring by adding even just one quirky touch, especially for the easily seen accessories like bags or shoes. The big red lips bag of IU character in this drama is definitely one of the most eye-catching bags viewers have ever seen.
So, whether you are crazy about colors or love print clashing, you will love IU’s character in Bel Ami. Plus, learning how to wear quirky and almost over the top accessories is sometimes not really bad for special occasions where you want to look special.
