Wondering what to wear while the weather warms up? New arrivals from YesStyle’s Korean Fashion selection feature pastels, pretty florals, cozy knits, breezy blouses, chic outerwear, sexy slingbacks and more to help you spring into spring with ease.
Pastels, Earth Tones, Ultra Violet
Think of the colors associated with babies – creamy yellow, baby blue, mint green and soft pink – because that’s what you need in your closet right now! Match with white or ivory separates to evoke a springtime mood. Ultra Violet is Pantone’s Color of the Year and I see softer versions of the color everywhere these days. If you don’t feel like dressing too brightly, earth tones like almond, burnt orange and coffee will help create a peaceful atmosphere.
Gingham, Ditsy Florals, Pinstripes
What’s spring without florals? Avoid large prints to prevent visual overload. You can even go for dark florals instead of pastels for a change. Complete your outfit with jeans, a canvas tote and sneakers. Gingham is the summer version of plaid. Balance the busy print again with denims or monochrome separates, or opt for a gingham lining for a subdued look. Last but not least, pinstripes are always welcome for the breezy nautical vibe they exude.
Knits, Chiffon, Mesh
Lightweight and relaxed rib-knit sweaters continue to shine during transition weather, but do stock up on chiffon tops and dresses. Match a knit top with a ballerina-style skirt or layered accordion-pleat skirt to look like a fairy fresh from the forest.
Blouses, Longlines, Midi
Korean fashion isn’t complete without a blouse or two. Get blouses in every texture, cut and color – from velvet to chiffon, tie-neck to frilled, and plain to patterned. A chiffon blouse will be the most helpful in spring when you don’t know what to wear. Complement the flowy silhouette with a longline jacket and A-line midi skirt, or tuck it into a mini skirt to look youthful.
Trench Coats, Windbreakers, Denim Jackets
If you’re wearing slouchy layers, try adding structure with a denim jacket, trench coat or windbreaker. Every spring and autumn, I urge readers to invest in a trench coat that you really love. If you still don’t have one, scout for yours now! I love the single-breasted version instead of double-breasted, in colors far from the typical almond, a drawcord waist instead of self-fabric sash, or with cinched cuffs. Windbreakers and parkas are also strong this season as a practical substitute for bomber jackets.
Slingbacks, Peep-Toes, Loafers
You can finally put away your winter boots in exchange for some skin-baring designs. Don’t just settle for slides and flip-flops. A sexy slingback or open-toe design helps anchor your feet to your shoes while allowing your feet to breathe. They’re also trustworthy options for the office along with loafers.
