Fall/ Winter Look Book with Rigel Gemini – Humans of KOODING

We partnered up with Rigel Gemini, a Los Angeles based content creator / social media influencer, as he styles KOODING pieces for California’s Fall/Winter season.

Look #1: Bellui Striped Shirt & Minimal Pajama Shirt by Redhomme

This first look is simple with just the right touch of sophistication. Rigel pairs a simple white collared tee with a dressy pajama shirt to make his look a little more put together and refined. The white outline on the pajama shirt adds some more dimension to his outfit, making it more interesting for onlookers to pay attention to the subtle detailed lining of his top.

Look #2: Embo Pocket Tee & Mesh Coloration Training Pants by Redhomme

The second look is perfect for those lazy days on campus. You woke up late but you need to rush to class, don’t worry! You can still look put together with this simple sky blue top paired with our Mesh Coloration Training Pants. No one will notice that you slept through all twelve alarms! The yellow lining that goes down the pants paired with the sky blue tee is a perfect pairing of colors without being too flashy.

8 Smart Tips to Organize Your Closet

8 Smart Tips to Organize Your Closet
Believe it or not, an organized closet can be a life-changer (when your mornings run smoothly and your outfit options feel endless you’ll see what we mean). Now open your closet. Does it scream chaos? Here’s a quick list to help you organize your closet and keep your Korean fashion items in place.

  1. Invest in various storage units to maximize your space. Besides the usual hangers, start using boxes, clear plastic drawers, stackable baskets and hanging canvas shelves to store accessories, shoes, folded items, and more.
  2. Place the clothes you wear frequently at eye level, so they are easy to spot and grab. The ones you use less can be stored below, while those you rarely sport can go high up in your closet.
  3. Bulky pieces, things you only use once in a blue moon, or out-of-season clothing items can be organized in boxes or suitcases and placed under beds or in a storage room.
  4. Each time you declutter, try to donate, recycle or consign. A great way to decide what must go is to turn around every hanger in your closet with the hook pointing towards you. Every time you wear an item, just hang it back the normal way. At the end of each season, you will realize that the hangers facing the wrong way are holding items you don’t need any longer.
  5. Exploit every single inch of your wardrobe and start using hanger racks, over-the-door hooks and shoe bags (a vertical boot organizer is a must!).
  6. A towel bar attached to a wasted wall space is ideal to hang your scarf collection.
  7. Shoe organizers can also be used for storing bulky items, such as sweaters and cardigans. Just roll them carefully before you stow them away.
  8. Group your clothing by category (dresses, pants, jackets, shirts) or, if you have extra time and patience, arrange them by color, from light to dark.

Try these tips and let us know how it went. But, in the meantime, don’t forget to visit www.KOODING.com, the Korean fashion online shop for the pickiest closets.

5 Ways to Transition Your Favorite Summer Dresses into Fall/Winter

If you think that transitioning to your winter wardrobe means packing away your favorite summer dresses, think again. Inspired by Korean street fashion, we figured out 5 smart ways to wear your floral and strappy dresses during the cold season without the shivers.

Idel Coloration Dress

  • When it comes to wearing a flirty dress in winter, layering is key. Pair a fit’n flare number with a cropped sweater, or throw an oversized cardi or pullover on top so that your lightweight dress peeks out at the bottom. Add sneakers or ankle boots to keep your feet warm.
  • Rock any strappy or sleeveless dress over a thin fitted turtleneck (bulky items will make your summery dress bulge) and pair with cool combat boots for a slightly grunge look. This is a staple Korean winter fashion look which allows for lots of creativity.
  • Another great idea is to match a basic white shirt with a sleeveless white dress: it will give the illusion of a sophisticated one piece looking très chic. Layer with a smart trench coat and embellished boots.
  • We are currently in love with one of the latest fashion trends for women: skin-tight over-the-knee boots worn in lieu of tights. Layer your breezy dress over a thin knit and pair with a short wool cape or poncho that falls just an inch or so above the dress for a peek-a-boo effect.
  • Slip your dress over a warm turtleneck and layer over anything from a sturdy leather jacket to a puffer vest to a cozy wool coat, add thick tights (doubled by a pair of knee-high knit socks), a cool beanie, a scarf and you are channelling your seasonless dress in style, a perfect example of how to mix and match ladies fashion clothing flawlessly.

Top 5 December Stylist Picks with Cherrykoko & LA Girl

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year! The end of the year is always a time that people look forward to and we wanted to share with you some of our favorite pieces for this upcoming holiday season!

01) Drawing Round Sweatshirt-Cherrykoko

Piece number one is for those lazy folks who want to stay warm and stylish without the discomfort. The minimalistic drawing in the center of the sweater will add an element of interest for any onlooker. I love this piece because I’ve never seen a design quite like this one and the color combination can be paired with any outfit.

02) Come To Me Coat– Cherrykoko

You can never go wrong with a sophisticated trench coat. I think everyone needs one lying around for a day in town or a night out. You can always pair a trench coat on top of any look to turn your style into something a little more refined. Definitely a must have!

 

 

03) Tie My Knit-Cherrykoko

Piece number three is this red turtle neck sweater and it’s as soft as sweaters get. The cranberry color is perfect for any festivities coming up in the month of December and you don’t have to worry about being cold! I personally love the oversized look and this sweater does just that without completely overwhelming the wearers body.

 

04) Modern Check Pants-Cherrykoko

My favorite piece from the five are these plaid pants. I’ve noticed that plaid is really in these days seeing that the pattern has shown up in almost every fashion store. Adding pattern into your outfit makes you look like you tried 100 times harder than you actually did and these  pants do just that. They’re extremely comfortable and they look perfect with even just a plain white tee. If you haven’t picked up a pair of plaid pants this season, you’re already behind!

 

 

05) Metal Pleated Skirt-LAGirl

Our last piece was chosen in mind for all the upcoming holiday parties coming up! Wear this skirt for your Christmas dinner or even a New Years gathering and we guarantee that you’ll be the talk of the party. The material is flashy enough to draw attention to your outfit without coming off as a try hard. Pair this skirt with a nice top and some heels and you’re on your way!

 

Let us know what your favorite piece was out of the five and you can shop all these styles on KOODING.com! Happy Holidays!

 

Best,
KOODING Team
