Seoul Fashion Week Street Style Photos To Inspire Your Everyday Look | Clozette


Fashion has never been more alive in South Korea, especially with the Spring/Summer 2020 Seoul Fashion Week happening in their capital right now. Given that, it’s best you keep your eyes peeled for the latest K-Style trends that will surely come about in the coming days. And while the pieces that hit their runways are all surely worth looking forward to, the styles that slay the streets are also something you shouldn’t miss. To inspire your everyday look, here are just some of the most striking Seoul Fashion Week street style photos you should check out.



Simply Chic



If anything, this sophisticated look just proves that you can never go wrong with a dress-and-outerwear combo. Though incredibly simple, this ensemble always makes for a chic outfit no matter the season. Invest in a maxi dress that has a striking print — plus points if it’s voluminous so it gives you extra feminine charm. Pair it with plain-coloured outerwear and high-heeled boots for a timelessly elegant look.


Eye-catching glam



Most of Seoul Fashion Week street style is minimalist. You'll find countless monochrome-outfit-wearing style mavens out on the streets during this week. But those who stand out from the crowd do so by adding a bit of glam to their look. Take notes from them and amp up your look with eye-catching accessories like a statement sunnies that falls within your colour scheme, a bedazzled bag, and jewellery that shines like no other.



Bright maximalist



Of course, there are still those who love to play with colours and prints. If that's your thing, dive into it with neon colours that are sure to pop. Mix it with pieces of various prints and textures, but make sure they all still fall within your colour scheme to match. Unlike when wearing a minimalist ensemble, you can balance your maximalist outfit with more muted accessories.




Fun with textures



Not into bright looks? Opt to dress from head to toe in one light tone instead. When you wear muted colours, your look doesn’t necessarily have to be plain and boring. What you can do is to layer similarly coloured pieces with different prints and textures. And, to add contrast, choose a bag that’s from the opposite end of the spectrum.



Mixing genres



Who says your pieces all have to give off the same vibe? Have fun by mixing and matching clothes that you wouldn’t think of pairing with one another at first glance. Pair a sleek, smart blazer with a pair of hip baggy cargoes that scream ‘90s athleisure. Playing around will help you achieve a style that’s wholly different from what you had before.



Logomania



Another thing that's noticeable about this year's Seoul Fashion Week street style is this retro trend making a comeback. Though once considered a fashion faux pas you’d want to avoid, the logomania trend gradually bounced back to its high-fashion status in recent years. So go on, and wear your brands with pride. Wear an outerwear dotted with their logo over simple and monochrome pieces to make your ensemble pop.



Preppy chic



Want to wear preppy clothes without looking too much of a cute schoolgirl? Try on a puffy-sleeved collared blouse in one size bigger for a quirky vintage vibe. You can pair it with a matching ruffled skirt, but keep it all from becoming too childish with a sleek pair of high-heeled boots.

Get into the Halloween spirit here.


We’re onto the last three months of the year. Make the most out of 2019 by taking up your fashion game up a notch. Get out of your comfort zone and try out trends you’ve never done before. Take a risk and you might just find your signature style for the upcoming year. Looking for unique style ideas to inspire you? Check out these Japanese fashion trends that slayed the streets. 



Mismatch prints



When we wear prints, it has become a default for us to pair it with plain pieces to avoid being too over-the-top. It’s risky pairing a loud print with another eye-catching one, but when done right, it can actually give your look a quirky edge. So take notes from the style mavens of Japan: ease into one of the most popular Japanese fashion trends this year by mixing prints that have the same colour scheme. That way they’re unique but unified.


Stick to one



Those not really into prints but want their look to pop nonetheless can opt to wear just one shade from head to toe. Go the extra mile and wear bright shades like yellow, but make sure to incorporate different textures and small pieces with a different colour as a contrast. This way, you won’t end up looking just like a plain old crayon.



Walk with confidence



If you’re not really into bright colours, a monochrome outfit still does wonders. But do the unexpected by slipping into a pair of statement shoes. Literally stand out in the streets with footwear like no other. But before you boldly walk amongst the crowd, pair it with a similarly coloured bag to make your look pop.




Play with proportions



Speaking of Japanese fashion trends, have you noticed how their street style tends to incorporate oversized clothing? You may have been more used to wearing outfits that perfectly fit, but this time, do play around with proportions. Try out wearing ill-fitting pieces, like loose shirts, huge blazers, and even baggy bottoms. But don’t forget to highlight your figure by buckling on a belt on your waist or topping it all off with a tight-fitting piece.



Love denim



Another retro style that made a comeback on the streets of Japan are the denim on denim outfits. While we all love the versatile fabric, wearing an ensemble completely made out of that can be a bit tricky. Still, dare to try the trend — a real fashion milestone doesn’t happen by avoiding the risks. To not look too Midwestern, choose pieces with unique silhouettes and embellishments. Add a splash of colour to your look by accessorising with a brightly-coloured bag. 



Find comfy bottoms



Lastly, while we tell you to get out of your comfort zone, we still want you to be physically comfortable in what you wear. So skip the tight skinny jeans and incorporate wide-leg pants to your look instead. Choosing such high-waist pairs don’t only give your legs some room to breathe, but they also lengthen your silhouette. Make it fun by getting a pair with a one-of-a-kind texture or colour, and it’ll be the only statement piece you’ll need to complete your look.
