Everything You Need To Know About What’s Trending In K-Fashion This Fall

Winter lovers… rejoice! The cold days are finally here, and while we’re all for cozying up surrounded by blankets while holding a cup of hot cocoa, for winter lovers — like myself — it’s finally that time of the year when we get to put away the sandals and bring out our beloved boots, coats, and cozy sweaters. But fall and winter clothes are not just about covering up. It’s also layering and mixing up fun trends. Are you in the mood to try some new looks? Take notes, because here’s every K-fashion trend you need to know about this season.

Bless the beret

Bennies were maybe the hat of the season last year, but 2018/2019 is all about berets. This super chic yet relaxed kind of hat is super easy to combine and looks great on everyone. Many stars have jumped onto the beret wagon lately, and we feel super tempted to get one for ourselves now.

Extra-long padded jackets

This is not a new trend for sure, but one that’s stronger than ever this year. Long padded jackets are not only the warmest trend you’ll find out there, but also one that goes with absolutely everything. Jeans? Skirts? Even sneaking to the grocery store in your pajamas is doable once you own one of these.

Statement knits

Cold-weather season is all about being cozy, right? Well, what about making a statement while doing so? Statement knits are in, and celebrities are proof of it. One of these can turn a super simple look into a runway-worthy one in a matter of seconds. From different kinds of wool to fancy-shaped sleeves, high necks, and patterns, there’s a world of knitted goods out there waiting to join your closet!


Plaids on plaids on plaids, and then add little more, because this season is all about plaid and check prints one on top of another. But don’t get it wrong, this trend can fit both minimalists and those who enjoy mixing up prints. The best part is while red plaid was the emperor years ago, there are thousands of different styles and colors nowadays, so you can find the perfect one for you.

Oversized coats

We could certainly say there’s no one K-celebrity that doesn’t own at least one of these. Titled the winter king by excellence, the oversized coat is one of those multifaceted pieces that go well with everything and anyone. Pair them with high heels, sneakers, dresses, pants, nightgowns… anything you want.

Sneakers with…everything

Behind are the days when sneakers were just meant for exercising. Nowadays there are so many different types and designs out there that you can pair them with absolutely everything in order to give your look a little bit of an urban touch.

Oversized shirts

A personal favorite and with good reasons. Boxed, oversized shirts are one of Korea’s favorite trends thanks to its powerful yet elegant touch. Tuck it inside your pants, let if fall freely, or leave a few buttons open so it falls down your shoulder. So many options, so little winter.

Matching sets

Seoul Fashion Week was proof that sets are in. From blazer-pants to sporty-like sets, matching your top to your bottoms is not only meant for little kids anymore.

Belts for everything

While in the past belts were meant to go unnoticed and just do their job, there are thousands of fun and cool designs out there now. But Koreans go even farther this season by using them not only for their hips or waist but necks, heads, and even bags. Some brands have actually created exclusive belt collections that have sold out in a matter of minutes.
