6 K-Drama Winter Fashion Looks We’d Love To Cop
It’s nearing the holidays, and boy, do I love the cycle of outfits that we see during this season. If you find yourself circling from comfy knits to glamorous and sparkly dresses, you aren’t the only one! With the chillier weather inching in, it becomes more important than ever to layer up and stay warm. That’s not to say you should be completely buried under baggy layers, since after all, holiday parties are the time to shine bright! If you find yourself needing some winter style inspiration, here are six looks from K-dramas that will surely get you looking chic this season!
1. Cozy #Cottagecore
The #cottagecore aesthetic represents an idealized lifestyle of slow-living. You’ve most likely seen this translated into fashion through whimsical prairie dresses and gingham prints. Paying tribute to the more rural elements of modern society has also been one of the biggest trends this year and it ain’t too late to jump on the bandwagon if you haven’t yet! Seo Dal Mi (Suzy) executes this perfectly in tvN’s “Start-Up” with a peasant-style blouse layered under a grey midi dress. The look is professional, stylish, and comfy (bonus points for layering up too!).
2. Power Pantsuits
Seo Dal Mi’s sister, Won In Jae (Kang Han Na), might be a tough character to like but there’s no denying her work outfits are always a scene-stealer! In Jae’s a certified power woman in the workplace and she’s definitely got a wardrobe to match with strong statement pieces and tailored pantsuits. One of my favorites would have to be the set she wears as a presenter in a lecture. The clean lines and put-together look definitely helps In Jae to project a confident and successful image.
3. The Sweater Vest
Grandfather-style sweater vests are the style trend that I never saw coming, oh how the tables have turned! Whether styled over a plain tee or a thicker under layer, the sweater vests work as long as there is a juxtaposition between the vest and the layer beneath in the collar and the sleeve lengths. Han Ae Ri (Lee Se Young) from MBC’s “Kairos” showcases a neutral-toned sweater vest over a simple tee for a comfy and trendy fit. It’s a pretty neat (and super cozy!) trend to adopt for winter.

4. Animal Prints
Every year when fall and winter swing around town, animal prints start taking over wardrobes once more, and this year is no exception. For a fun and quirky spin to the classic animal print, try going for a colorful variation like An Jeong Ha’s (Park So Dam) style from “Record of Youth.”
5. Balloon Sleeves
These have been a staple this year – huge, billowy sleeves that give an ethereal feel to any outfit it is paired in. Take a note out of “Birthcare Center” character Lee Roo Da’s (Choi Ri) book and match it with some leather bottoms for added edge!

6. The Leather Blazer
In keeping with the overall mood of relaxed comfort, leather blazers and outerwear are back in a big way this season. Not only do they lend a touch of cool rocker chic vibe, they are also highly functional during winter. Check out how EXID’s Hani styled up a leather bomber in “The Spies Who Loved Me” to portray a cool, genius hacker!
