Korean Winter Fashion Trending Right Now

It’s never too late to start thinking ahead and coordinate your wardrobe with the latest Korean winter fashion trends. You already know our takes for the best summer streetwear, now it's time to shine on your winter gear! One of our favorite seasons to style is certainly winter, given the vast possibilities through all the layers, textures and designs that can be rocked during the colder seasons. That's why we were so excited to release our collection of Lychee the label 2020 winter collection! For us we are particularly fond of Korean winter fashion, and take a lot of our inspiration through Korean winter styles. As a result, our winter wardrobe is heavily designed with the trendiest Korean winter clothes in mind. There is something particularly fun, casual and youthful about Korea’s winter fashion. If you’re looking to get early access to upcoming Korean winter trends and Kpop fashion, this is the place for you. Today we’re going to explore our takes on the most popular Korean winter fashion choices you’ll be seeing this year. 

Oversized Blazers

The trend of oversized clothing has always been a popular choice for Koreans. This no doubt extends to all types of clothes that can be made fashionably oversized without looking frumpy. While you might be more familiar with the oversized sweater trend as a Korean winter fashion staple, you’ll be happy to know that this coming winter, the oversized blazer is making a comeback. Part of what makes the perfect Korean winter outfit is surely your ability to layer, and what piece is more perfect to incorporate than a classic and sophisticated oversized blazer. While blazers generally give off a very professional and serious aura, our oversized counterpart here actually does the exact opposite - allowing women and men alike to look put together but casual at the same time. The oversized blazer will be one of the most popular Korean winter styles you’ll see coming this season.

Teddy Coats

While you might find a lot of Koreans like to rock the trench coat during the Fall season, a popular Korean winter outfit might consist of something a little warmer and cozy. That’s right, the ever-so-popular teddy coats. There are a few reasons why these oversized fleece jackets are such a popular choice for Korean winter fashion. First of all, it just gets the job done. Absolutely warm and comfortable, you will be winter fashion Korea ready. On top of keeping you perfectly warm in winter weather, they’re also adorable. As you know, Koreans tend to value the cuter aesthetics, especially when it comes to women and fashion. With softer colors, fabrics and cuts, cute fashion is associated with youthfulness, which is extremely popular in Korean beauty standards. As a result, these teddy coats are going to be a popular choice for Korean fashion winter this year.

Baggy Hoodies 

When you think about Korean winter clothes, one of the most common thoughts that might come to mind would be the standard oversized and baggy hoodie. Popular amongst both men and women alike, we find that the appeal towards these baggy hoodies or sweaters is largely due to comfort. We all know that comfort doesn’t always have to equate to sloppy - and the Korean winter outfits we see being rocked by these fashionistas in oversized hoodies says it all. Women tend to enjoy pairing their oversized and baggy hoodies with something a little more form fitting at the bottom to create a sense of balance and shape. Whether it is a tight pair of leggings, jeans or a cute mini skirt, the idea is to bring elements of style back into an otherwise very casual look. What might appear to be someone drowning in a sea of fabric, is actually quite a common and youthful looking Korean winter style.

Trendy Hats

Your Korean winter outfits are never complete without the proper accessories to go with it. You’ll find that a lot of Korean street fashion in the winter tends to really go all out with every possible detail they can incorporate, and this includes accessories no less. With the colder weather, what better opportunity do you have then to whip out your collection of hats. The choices are rather limitless, as it depends on the outfit theme you are going for. During the hotter months you might find that most women like to wear berets or baker boy hats, giving their Korean winter outfit a sense of sophistication and class. The Korean street wear fashion styles might lean towards edgy baseball hats or bucket hats with metallic rings and details.

Top 4 Asian Online Shops for Korean Jeans

There’s obviously an appeal when looking at beautiful Kpop artists and their outfit of the day goals. One thing we can’t help but notice is the way their Kpop jeans always flatter and elongate their model-esque legs. What is it in particular that Asian jeans focus on to clearly highlight the best qualities of our legs? We find that Kpop pants actually seem to have a formula they like to follow. In contrast, we find a lot of Western trends and fashion tend to gravitate towards oversized, baggy and more recently, mom style jeans, which can quite frankly make one look frumpy and short if it isn’t pulled off perfectly. With Kpop pants, we find that they tend to focus on form and fit first and foremost to allow the most flattering silhouette for the wearer.

Get Inspired With Iconic Jimin Fashion

How to Style Yourself Like Jimin BTS

Who doesn't know BTS? These K-pop boys are quite possibly the most famous South Korean band in the world. Besides the group's amazing vocals and dancing, its members, especially Park Ji-min—more commonly known by his stage name Jimin—are constantly starting and setting new trends. 

In addition to being the lead singer for BTS and one of the group's most talented dancers, Jimin has also released two solo albums and has starred in numerous ad campaigns for major global brands. Jimin fashion is so unique that it has literally evolved into its own style category, and you can look to Jimin style as an inspiration for your own wardrobe.

How to Dress Like Jimin

This trend-setting BTS phenomenon is definitely one of a kind, but you can recreate Jimin outfits with the help of a few key pieces that shout K-pop flair. Just take your cues from BTS Jimin fashion by bringing those iconic touches into your own personal style, and you'll be making a statement in no time!

Jimin fashion ranges from soft and comfy airport looks to super-elegant designer labels, so there truly is something for everyone. He has said that he takes his inspiration from many different places, including his stage wardrobe and even how he feels on any particular day. He has rocked the all-black trend and given new life to plaid in all its checkered forms. He has also gone totally eclectic with a one-sided half blazer, and has put a new spin on prep-school pizazz. Jimin-inspired outfits always get noticed.  Here are some ideas you can steal as inspiration for memorable fashion moments of your very own.

5 Jimin-Inspired Looks

Take a closer look at how Jimin fashion runs the gamut from super casual to runway ready. These five Park Jimin outfits show how this style icon is always making sure his wardrobe leaves its mark, no matter where he is; whether it's on the go or on the stage. 

1. Casual Chic

BTS Jimin style has given new life to the casual look. Whether he's dashing from one flight to the next at the airport, or out on the street getting hounded by the paparazzi, Jimin puts a special signature on all sorts of loungewear, from striped joggers to hoodies and warm and cozy beanies. Pair it all with a simple white T-shirt, make it stand out with a bit of stretch and slouch, and you'll be dominating this style way beyond casual Fridays.

2. Back to School

No discussion of BTS jimin outfits would be complete without a prep-school worthy get-up! You can start with an iconic Jimin jacket, like a crested blazer, to anchor your look. A plaid schoolgirl skirt is a classic that never goes out of style. How about a sweater vest or a Jimin Gucci sweater? Adding a luxe label will take your prep style to the next level! Pick a piece straight from the school uniform closet and then throw it for a loop with something totally unexpected, like an oversized cropped sweater, and you'll have captured Jimin fashion that's ready to hit the books.

3. Monochrome Magic

Jimin knows all about the power of a tone-on-tone look, and he is often seen strutting in head-to-toe black or a total white-out. Make sure you choose a basic black or an elegant white and don't leave any detail out. On stage, Jimin shines in a flouncy, sequined white button-down shirt and matching white tuxedo pants. On the street, he rocks a snow-white ripped jean, a simple all-white sweatshirt, and icy white sneakers. Recreate this monochromatic look with a cargo pant topped off by a turtleneck, and make a splash with a statement chain.

4. Off-Balance Fireworks

Who said an outfit can't be lopsided? A bit of off-balance quirkiness will make heads spin just like they do with Jimin’s looks. He made a splash on stage in a one-sided blazer; you can try out a pair of asymmetrical denim shorts or an asymmetrical top with a sassy shoulder slouch. Sometimes tipping the scales just a bit can make a huge difference in creating a really memorable look. 

5. Strapping Fashion 

Jimin knows how to get creative with accessories, including well-placed chains and intriguing straps. This can be as easy as strapping on a cross-body bag, or even more elaborate with trendy and sexy side strap thigh cut out shorts. A strap harness pairs well with any look you have in mind, adding that extra pop.

Check out all the looks on Lychee the Label, especially KPop fashion and accessories, as well as Asian streetwear.
