1. Tennis Skirts
You can pair Tennis Skirts with any shoes you may like depending on the look you want to go through with. If you’re going for a cute or preppy vibe, you may want to put on flats or if you want more regal and feminine, you can wear it with heels. Usually, they are worn without a bag making it best worn alone too. They are so manageable that you can add it to any wardrobe because of its simpleness and comfort.
2. Matching Sets
Matching Sets are a staple in big fashion houses and are embraced by K-Pop stylists themselves. Because of its versatility, you can mix and match pieces to create an array of styles, may it be chic, athletic, edgy, quirky, and many more. You can match it with a cardigan, skirt-sets, button-up shirts and straight pants, jumpers and toasty shorts. Definitely, having a Matching Set would help you look stylish, crisp and put-together.
3. Puffed Sleeves
Puffed Sleeves are in this season and undeniably adds a touch of luxury and elegance to otherwise ordinary apparel designs. This fashion trend has been popular among Korean personalities and is currently trendy in both shirts and dresses.
4. Denim Shorts
Denim Shorts aren’t new in the fashion scenes and in fact have been reinvented so many times over the last century. But because they are so easy to work with, adding denim shorts have been effectively incorporated into formal ensembles in Korea by stylists and are ideal fashion pieces during spring and summer as you can play with a variety of styles with just this piece. It’s good with blouses, fitted crop tops, oversized sweaters and a good ol’ graphic tee.
Suits aren’t just for men now, but also for women. A good pantsuit can make you look and feel empowered and be the most dashing, confident woman in any room you walk into. Tip: Select a silhouette that would fit you perfectly. Don’t be scared to experiment with patterns and bold, vibrant colors.

Slacks are an ever-trending piece in Korean fashion and can be transformed into chic to easygoing, sophisticated to fun as it is very easy to style. It’s no surprise that they are a common pick for the off-duty idol look. They are one of the most underrated flexible pieces, whether you’re heading to school, the office, hanging out with friends, or attending a family event.
7. Patterned Tights
Even though patterned tights aren’t really new and are already a well known piece, you can still be inventive in any way you want by combining elements to make it fresh this spring season. This trend will allow you to dress up a plain outfit and give that extra energy without looking too edgy. For a more formal look, you don’t have to worry because it’s easy to incorporate it with elegant and crisp pieces to match the occasion and a good tip is to pair it with the same color of your shoes. .
8. Street Style
Thanks to many personalities who have accepted and embodied the trend, Street Style has literally “taken the streets” in South Korea because of the increasing popularity of the look.
