Like A Girl Boss: 12 Ways To Incorporate Park Min Young's K-Drama Style Into Your Wardrobe

Park Min Young has been gaining attention for her hit dramas and unforgettable roles, but there’s also one thing that the audiences keep looking forward to —her chic, classic feminine style that many would like to cop for their workwear. Dressing for work can be hard, especially if you want to look professional without looking boring or too basic. Here are some inspirations from the beautiful actress for workwear that doesn’t break the office code:

Classic Suits

For her role as an art curator in “Her Private Life,” Sung Duk Mi is always on the go. Whether she’s out meeting artists, running errands for the director, or organizing events in the museum, she’s always in front of different people, and this job requires looks that are presentable yet comfortable. Her go-to sartorial choice is a matching black or white suit that spells power and professionalism. Park Min Young keeps her look interesting with subtle details like a flared top and a suit dress cinched with a belt.

Pale Pinks and Neutral Shades

Her workwear “uniform” is very consistent yet she adds a feminine touch by wearing pale colors that work well with her skin tone and soft makeup looks. She keeps her look simple and sophisticated with nude colors that can easily take her from day meetings to after-work hours.

Fresh Pastels

It’s Spring/Summer in Korea now and pastel colors are the perfect way to lighten up the mood and bring the season’s freshness to the office. Park Min Young wears periwinkle blue, peach/coral, light yellow, and lavender coordinates on rotation that are as pretty as the sunshine. Her outfits still look crisp and ready for business.


Unexpected Colors

Sung Duk Mi stands out in a sea of grays and typical workwear choices by wearing bright, rich colors with clean, sleek lines that make her look creative and chic.


Office Bling

She lets her suits take the limelight by wearing a mix of minimalist and classic jewelry and timepieces to upgrade her office style. The pieces are versatile and give just the right amount of beautiful, stylish support to her corporate look.

Work Skirts

After all the pantsuits combo she regularly wears, she breathes life to her workwear by clocking in with structured and flowy skirts. A mix of high-waisted, tailored skirt or midi length pieces are a sure fire way to look on trend and sophisticated.

Key Accessorizing

A silk scarf, saddle bag, or a prim top-handle bag may be small details but they definitely make a big difference. Did we mention that we absolutely love her everyday bags? They look like they could fit all her work essentials but they’re still stylish enough to wear to an event or dinner date straight after work.
