We used to get many inspirations from travelling to Korea. Scrolling down the streets of Garosugil and Apgujeong, shopping on streetstyle items in Hongdae and Myeongdong. Watching adorable female fashion of Ehwa students nearby Sinchon, we missed that all last year and stuck on lockdown for over a year. We suggest getting Korean fashion inspiration from K-dramas with us. Our team created a K-drama June K-drama collection to share what Korean fashionistas wear these days.
Teddy bear coats
A unisex fashion trend that was quite popular in the last years is the teddy bear coats. They were expanded into lighter items crafted to a variety of shapes and colors and decorated with interesting bottoms, embroideries and contrast edgings. Both AKMU’s Lee Suhyun and Oh Yeon Seo wear similar style in a romantic comedy "Crazy Person in the Area." What we love about this style is that it adds cuteness to adults as well as to kids, to males as we as to females. Did you already have one? If not, hurry up, they are selling fast and will definitely will be your favorite jacket in the next fall.
Effortless way to show off your personal style and keep up with the trend is to bring newness to your hair accessories. Scrunches colored with summer palettes with different patterns, in variety of fabrics were an uprising trend since winter and is the main micro trend of this summer. Finish you outfit without putting in too much effort, yet fitting into your existing wardrobe. Just like Jeon Hye Bin from “Revolutionary Sisters.”
Jackets never get old. A wardrobe essential item across the world and one of the most favorite styles among all Korean fashionistas. Winter or Summer, Fall or Spring we can literally see them everywhere. Affected by pandemic jackets of this season became softer feel and lest structured. You can wear them in a classic way or go trendy matching with short leggings, sweatpants. Pull on the jacket with a slip dress for a more feminine outfit or with a mini fitted dress to keep your playful look slightly classic. A must-have item to freshen up your daily basics line. Get more inspirations from Suzy Bae in a “Start-up” k-drama.
Modern vintage clothing became more popular these days. There were always small communities among vintage lovers, and we can see the trend is growing as people become more environmentally conscious. This vintage high collar blouse with long flared sleeves at the bottom is a beautiful representative of a chic modern vintage style demonstrated by Ok Ja-yeon in a k-drama “Mine.” The drama has super high ratings and a lot of styling inspirations.

Loose fit jeans
Denim lovers are you ready to enjoy your favorite item and wear it in the most comfortable way. It was being almost ten years ago, when we wear loose fit denim pants and now is the time. Voluminous shapes are back on fashion radar. Straight leg silhouettes inspired by 80s in black, navy and light blue are what you need in this summer season. Look how cool and sophisticated Nana from “Oh! Master” looks wearing a pair of loose fit jeans.
Being stuck at home during consequent waves of lockdowns, we all start to miss being outside, sunlight, nature and we can see how Korean designers express their longing in their new summer designs with floral prints. And again we adore how lovely Jeon Hye Bin from “Revolutionary Sisters” looks in a daisy sweater. Similar styles can are introduced in both Y2K and Cottagecore styles and we expected to see more of this fashion further.
Can’t wait to see “Sailor Moon Eternal” movie to be released on Netflix? Sailor collars are introduced on sweaters, dressed, tops, blouses and pleated sailor skirts are a big trend among Korean fashionistas and all Sailor moon fans across the world. Jeong Ji So from “Imitation” wears a sky blue sweater with sailor collar, and she looks so cute. What we especially love about this style, in particular, is that they can be matched with variety of bottoms and can we wear on a daily basis. By the way, you can find a special line introduced Sailor moon items from clothing to accessories at magiccosmosst.com.
The new vest
You definitely already have at least one vest in your wardrobe but there never too many vests. Go Won Hee’s style is always trendy and cute and we love how she styles trendy items with basic pieces we all have in our closet. Preppy style and Dark Academia are uprising trends across the world but we have seen them quite a lot among Korean teenagers, so they know how to style a knitted vest in the most sophisticated, cute and comfy way. There is a bunch of different options introduced at magiccosmosst.com, from your everyday our Classic School Vest, or go with the trendy Little Cute Argyle Short Vest. Or how about something funky and colorful such as the Hugging Tulips Knit Vest!
Nana from “Oh! Master” shows many beautiful outfits and we can say for sure she absolutely into new denim trend. Earlier we highlighted her outfit in loose fit denim pants. From another episode, we see her in beautiful vintage inspired sky blue jeans with knee cuts. We used to see distressed jeans either matching with crop tops or oversized t-shirts, but in Nana’s outfit she reimagined denim fashion and put them together with a classic soft blazer in a summery butter color. Isn’t it a perfect way to feel comfortable, edgy and classic all at once?
Lavender seems to be a new color of the year, from lavender latte to lavender colored Island, this color we can see almost everywhere these days in Korea. Whether that came from BTS vibes, “Cottagecore” trend or food design creativeness we love how lavender hues spread throughout all fashion categories. Bark Bo Young from “One Day Destruction Came to My Door” wears a boyfriend silhouette lavender long-sleeve shirt and however the shape of the shirt is slightly masculine the color adds romantic feel and sensuality to the outfit. Fashion insiders claim the color hues of lavender could be considered as a new classic color along with white, sky blue and pale pink colors.
Speaking of favorite carryover styles among Korean girls especially this year, we would pick out sweatpants. You might never expect to see them wearing as trendy item, but they are a hot trend. Their popularity has grown with waffle sweatpants we used to see in winter and spring season and introduced in a lighter fabric for warm summer day in a variety color way and patterns. Bark Bo Young was teleported from her home to Milmang’s apartment in the earlier episode of “One Day Destruction Came to My Door", and we can easily see similar outfit on the street and coffee shops in Korea.
