This trend isn’t specific to any season, but I noticed a lot of Korean fashion includes the use of cute ankle socks! These socks provide a girly touch to any look and is easy to incorporate with any outfit. These socks can easily be found online for an inexpensive price or even through local clothing stores. Although the pictured socks are white, there are other colors that are popularized such as pastel pink, black, and other socks with fun statements or quirky images.

The girls pictured in this image are from the popular girl group Blackpink, they have been making waves around the world with their recent world tour and being featured on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The group’s outfits when performing are stunning, but their casual outfits are easily achievable and chic. Lisa, the girl with grey hair and bangs, is wearing an oversized long blazer that is trendy with both males and females in Korea. The oversized coat creates an unstructured androgynous look. The coat creates a statement as the central piece to an outfit.

 

Wide Leg Pants

This trend is my personal favorite because of the comfort! As a Florida native, wearing tight jeans isn’t always the most comfortable in high heat. These wide leg pants are flowy and refreshing to wear on a hot day. The style of the pants is suitable for most body types as it gives the illusion of longer legs. This may not be everyone’s favorite look, but give this style of pants a try and you will fall in love with the comfort as well as effortless look!

   

 

Chunky Shoes

If you are the type to keep your outfits simple with staple pieces, adding a chunky sneaker can create a spark to your outfit! As pictured, the girl in the white chunky sneakers is wearing an all black outfit, making her shoes stand out in contrast. Chunky shoes can provide comfortable foot support, but also level up any casual look. My suggestion would be to get a white chunky shoe as it can blend in seamlessly with outfits of various colors and shades.
