Hello Spring! Welcoming the Season With Style
With the end of the winter Olympics season, many are leaving the ice and snow behind with warm memories. As the weather starts to thaw out with the possibility of wetter climate, these are our top K-Fashion spring items that are necessary for your closet!
Spring Fresh Kicks
With the whirlwind of Olympic events broadcasted worldwide, sports companies have had success promoting their latest items, especially shoes. In a music video sponsored by Nike, Jay Park gets fans and consumers pumped with a rad music video for “RUN IT” featuring Woo Wonjae and Jessi that aired during the duration of the Olympics. An edgy yet cute look is pulled off by TWICE’s Jeongyeon as she’s sporting Air Jordan 1 Retro High OGs with knee-high sleek black socks to emphasize the look. Many street styles also tend to go for the ever popular and classic black stripe on white Adidas Superstars. Ranging from comfort, sport, or style, most brands offer the right fit for you. When it comes to daily inspired K-Fashion looks, many tend to keep it simple and clean. Some all-time favorite defaults tend to be Converse or canvas shoes. Go for clean-looking footwear that can be versatile with a variety of looks and are easy on the feet. Mix up the look with your choice of socks. Inspiration for fun socks can be found on any of your favorite idols such as TWICE’s Chaeyoung and Dahyun or BTS’s RM.
Have You Seen My Bag?
Shoes are now on your feet and you’re ready to go! But wait, you may need to take it slow. Spring weather makes it perfect for trips and adventures. Depending on your journey and destination, you might have to take along a few items. Having the right bag for your belongings will greatly impact your day. Ranging from briefcases and purses to backpacks and messenger bags, a variety of options are available to accommodate your needs. One fashion inspiration is J-Hope of BTS. With the return of fanny packs and crossbody backpacks, a whole new revolution of bags has resurfaced to suit any of your needs. While the brands many of our favorite idols wear may be outside of our financial capabilities, keep in mind that your favorite bag already in your closet can be modified to reflect your style. Having the right bag can help prevent you from carrying lots of items in your hands and arms, leaving you free to navigate the world around you. Whether heading to school, the office, or on a trip, be sure that your fashion piece is functionable!
While flowers may be sprouting and the weather warming up, the sun can still be deceitful. Keep in mind that it is still early in the transition from winter to spring. Don’t stash away your winter clothing just yet, as some layers may come in handy. You should always be prepared for whatever the weather can throw your way, and what better functional fashion piece to own than a hat? Whatever style you sport, a hat can keep your hair dry from rain or hide unmanageable frizz to help mask a bad hair day.
Keep your favorite shades within hand’s reach! Unpredictable rain storms may surprise you, but be prepared for when the clouds break away and the sun shines through. Kim Jongkook, popularly known from his TURBO days or as a cast member of Running Man, can always be seen sporting his favorite pair of shades over the many hundreds of episodes of Running Man. Wearing or packing a couple extra layers never hurt, as it will help keep you comfortable as the weather continues to change. Wherever these spring showers take you, always be sure to plan ahead by checking the weather.
