Having the chance to visit Korea for 2 weeks, I figured to blog about it without coming off creepy. With it is my chance to check out their own unique street wear.
1. Most prefer comfort over fashion, for instance my Western idea of cold weather gear does not include overall puffy jackets in drabby colors of black and gray.
2. The K-Pop influence is more so outside of South Korea, meaning its more popular outside than the general public. I expected locals to have an array of colored hair but it was not the case.
3. Street wear depends on age group. For instance, the older generation are more practical than the younger ones. The only disparity I noticed are a small percentage of women/girls who wore stilletos even in -13 degree weather. While another wore a pair of “booty shorts” in the same weather.
4. The wearing of face masks in South Korea is not commonly used. I ended up wearing one just to blend in and I noticed that it helped as a wind breaker for your cheecks. I’m sure there’s more purpose behind it but at that time, it saved my cheecks from cracking.
Until my next blog…
