One of the most important aspects of any drama is the fashion. So for Day 11 we discuss those outfits we wish we could have in our own closets.
**Sorry for the one day delay. We had technical difficulties on my end
Day 11 – Drama styling that you wanted to add to your own wardrobe
I loved the hanbok inspired dresses in Love Me For a Thousand More
I hated Madame Antione the show, but I loved the styling. I actively scoured the internet one night after spotting a pair of Victorian-style Mary Jane shoes the lead actress was wearing … but to no avail. Alas! I’d steal that woman’s wardrobe in a second. That aside, I’ve noticed my style sensibilities have changed a lot since I started watching (obsessing over) Kdramas. Now I look for interesting seam details; I like to pair baggier tops with tight pants; I go for more feminine looks in general. The funny thing is, since it changed my clothing habits, I get way more compliments on my outfits than I used to.
I think South Korean fashion is right on the money. In fact, I highly suspect the world is starting to take note. They are doing amazing things with lines, layering, colors, and material choices. While the rest of fashion world is clinging to the idea that more risque is equivalent to desirable, Korean fashion designers are working within their conservative nation’s traditions to create real works of genius. With the exception of turtlenecks. Burn them. Burn them all.
Now if we could just get them to branch out into plus size styles.
I was really close to choosing the modern hanboks from Love for a Thousand More as well. But then I started Strong Woman Do Bong Soon this week and fell in love……..with Bong Soon’s wardrobe. Her clothes are so stylish but don’t look crazy or out of place in a normal real life setting.
So what shows made you want to dip your toes into kdrama fashion? Let us know in the comments and be sure to come back tomorrow for an all new 14 Days of Fangirling.
Til next time,
