5 Korean Jacket Fashion Trends You Need to Know

Jean Jackets

A classic denim jacket, something so basic and easy that anyone can start with. For this particular Korean jacket for women, they love styling it oversized. Jean jackets often look a size or two too large, but that’s really the point of the style. These Korean fashion jackets give off a casual aura in their unfitted nature. They often come oversized and full length, or oversized and cropped as seen in the photo below. Either way, it’s meant to portray an easy going look, something that is widely popular in Korean fashion. The jean jacket can be styled up to balance the casual and genderless nature of the attire. Often we find Korean girls rocking their oversized jean jacket with a fitted skirt or crop top to bring back some shape and to elevate an otherwise casual outfit.

Bomber Jackets

Everyone needs a bomber jacket in their closet! Personally, we think these Korean jackets for ladies are a staple. The bomber jacket can be tricky to work with if you’ve never tried to style it before. Keep in mind that because they tend to be top heavy, you don’t want to pair it with something baggy or shapeless for your bottoms, in fear that you might look frumpy. Try styling this Kpop coat with pieces that are form fitted and able to show off your curves for best effect. A skinny jean or crop top over a bomber jacket is a popular go-to look.

Puffer Jackets 

The puffer jacket we all know and loved from our childhood has supposedly found its way back into modern fashion. As the sentiment goes, fashion always finds its way back around and the puffer jacket, now a form of a fashionable korean jacket for ladies, is no exception. This particular jacket first rose to fame through its practicality, as it was intended for outdoor activities and the need to stay warm. Nowadays, it seems like a mixture of practicality and fashion, with many designer brands incorporating a form of the puffer jacket into their high end collection. Today in Korea, the puffer jacket is proudly worn by youths and highly regarded as both practical and fashionable. But it certainly isn’t the only form of winter jacket popularized by the Koreans.
