When it comes to summer, sandals can’t be taken out of the picture because it is the perfect season to air your toes and show off your pedicures. In Seoul, these unisex Sandals have been in trend, remaining a style classic that matches almost anything.

So if you're looking to invest in a pair of unisex Sandals, here are two brands to check out!



It is not an exaggeration to say that at least one in three people from the ages 10-40 in Korea wears Birkenstocks (or at least dupes of it) in the Summer. They're extremely comfortable and come in a range of styles to suit every look.

It's the perfect pair to walk around in, lightweight, comfortable, and the more you wear them in, the better you feel in them. The sandals are also priced mid-ranged and they never go out of style. Arizona, Gizeh and Rio are the most popular Birkenstock models here; and if people want to amp up the fashion-factor, they would go for Athen or Yara. 

Dr. Martens

Dr. Martens are pricier and much heavier as compared to the Birkenstocks, but the rubber base and patent leather straps of their sandals make any look instantly hip and cool. 

These sandals are definitely a show stopper in a subtle way, most people just opt for the classic patent black ones, but their Pewter colour and floral detailed ones are also investment worthy sandals. If you are scared of getting cold feet, not to worry because pairing the sandals with socks is considered trendy in Korea!

Aside from your red lipstick and black pumps, your pair of denim pants is another wardrobe must-have. It all started back in the 1870's when two countries from Europe introduced two fabrics that are of similar looks. The one from Genoa, Italy was of medium quality and reasonably priced, while the one from and Nimes, France was of higher quality as it was made from fine twill fabric found in their country. Thus, it was referred to as the fabric "from Nimes" or "de Nimes" in Italian; and for short, we now call it "Denim". 

Aside for the usual denim pants and shorts, what are the other denim pieces that can make our wardrobe more exciting? Here's a list for you to (shop and) find out! 


Denim Shift Dress

The shift dress must be the most flattering dress there is in the whole fashion world. It hangs loose (but not too loose) from the chest down. It's simple, casual-chic, and getting one in denim would make it a whole lot easier you to compose no-fuss looks on lazy days.  

Denim Polo

Your denim (or Chambray) polo is just as vital as your white polo. It's as versatile and as put-together as the white polo. It can go from casual to dressy with a bit of styling and can do wonders to your usual look. 

Denim Overalls

The magic of the romper applies to denim jumpsuits as well, but it has more of a boyish flavour to it. You may look a bit childish if you don't carry it well, but if you pair it with the right top and shoes, you're good to go. 

Denim Jacket

The Denim jacket isn't just for the badass in town, it's also for the fashionista with an edgy style. Go the extra mile and wear denim jackets instead of blazers and sweatshirts for an ultimate casual-chic statement. 

Denim Skirt

Whoever said denim can't be feminine must have never met the perfect denim skirt. For your first buy, opt for an a-line silhouette for a no-fail girly touch to your look. Pair with a polo for a retro vibe or a cropped top for a chic casual look. 



If there's one pair of shoes you can wear for extreme comfort what would it be? Sneakers, of course! And for the past week, the fashion community has been showing it some love as more and more Clozetters have been wearing their sneakers with their outfits. And take note, we didn't just spot sporty looks, we also saw edgy, preppy, and even feminine styles!

Get the sneaker-fever with these top 5 looks that made it to our OOTD Roundup this week!




How about a classy look while wearing sneakers? Pull off this look just like how Clozetter AngelAdrade did--with a classy pair of white Nike sneakers and a black dress coat. It looks crisp and effortlessly chic!



Silver may not be the obvious colour choice for your sneaker but Star Clozetter Viviannvee made it work. The key is to balance it out with basic pieces for it to be the star of the show without being too loud. In this case, she made the look even more creative by wearing a comic, graphic top and a silver backpack to match her shoes. 



There are three things your top needs to sport a preppy look: it should be buttoned-up, printed, and tucked in. That's why Star Clozetter auracharisse's look is an A+ preppy look--with her white sneakers sealing the deal perfectly. 



Who knew a flower necklace, maxi skirt, and abstract print shoes would look good together? And despite the "chaotic" combination, Start Clozetter pupuren's OOTD shot seems so calm and serene. So yes, clashing styles can co-exist in one look as long as you know which pieces to put together.  



For Clozette Ambassador christyfrisbee, dressing up casual-edgy is natural. This look is a great example of how to own a trend--making it work for you to express your personal style.
