The Korean Winter Fashion 2021

1. Oversized Outfits

The oversized winter Korean outfit trend is not really new, but trust us when we say no one does and wears it better than Koreans. Oversized fashion outfits have evolved almost like art as South Koreans have a way to construct large pieces while maintaining the clothes’ proper proportions.

An oversized jacket and coat is an excellent winter sample for both men and women. In fact, we have been observing the unisex trend in terms of colors and designs lately. In addition, oversized outerwear is functional as well. This is because you can layer several clothing pieces underneath without feeling chunky.

If you reside in a tropical region or somewhere not as chilly as South Korea, then you can skip the jacket and coat, and substitute it with a nice oversized top. 

Sweaters, hoodies, or pullovers can be a head-turner without compromising your comfort or the outfit’s function. You can style them with your fave skinny jeans, short pants, or a cute skirt for a softer feminine look. For guys, you can simply match your oversized top with skinny jeans as well. Here are some Korean winter outfits by well-known South Korean celebrities.

2. Denim Jeans and Jackets

Denim fabric is known to be a timeless fashion material. It can be made into shirts, shorts, skirts, and dresses, but nothing beats denim jackets and jeans as classic staples of everyone’s wardrobes, even in the winter season.

With denim material, you can achieve whatever look you want. For example, you can showcase a relaxed style, girlfriend-style, boyfriend-style, or mom-style baggy jeans, which are becoming a staple in South Korea, by the way. 

Keep in mind that denim is easy to style and match with because they are versatile. No wonder almost any top and bottom wear can go with it. Next, if you want to have a casual look, wear sneakers. Then, for a sexy and chic look, wear something with heels. Lastly, wear boots for a more on-the-go and rugged vibe.

Here are other trendy denim outfits by South Korean idols.

3. Monochromatic Outfits

Surprisingly, the minimalist look or monochromatic outfits have a comeback because nothing is really minimal in South Korean fashion. Now, if you want to copy this trend, you have to stick with a monochrome Korean winter look, where all clothing pieces are similarly colored. Technically, it is easy-peasy to achieve this look, plus it makes you look well clothed and perhaps, even taller.

When coming up with a monochromatic look this winter, you should remember that all the clothing pieces do not have to be the same color. As long as you choose to put clothes together with the same shades, you can be able to achieve a monotone look as well. Just make sure you try knitted or tweed fabrics to keep you cozy, even if it is winter.

Here are some of the monochromatic attire of South Korean celebrities.
