3 Reasons Turtlenecks Are A Hidden K-Fashion Staple

Korean fashion is constantly updating itself with new trends and styles. Despite this ever-changing landscape,  turtlenecks are the most versatile piece in every K-fashion lover’s closet. Here, we’re bringing you the top 3 reasons why you should add a turtleneck to your cart:

 

They’re A Skirt’s Best Friend

From iconic K-pop girl group looks to the streets of Seoul, is there a more popular Korean women’s fashion item than the miniskirt? Available in any color, pattern, and fabric, it goes with everything and can be paired with nearly anything depending on your mood. Try pairing it with a turtleneck for an adorably youthful and girly look.

Korean Women's Turtlenecks

If you’re finding miniskirts to be too revealing or show too much skin, a turtleneck is a perfect solution. The full coverage up top helps contrast the amount of skin shown so you can feel comfortable.

They Dress Up Any Casual Look

Yes, even the most chill of dressers can rock a turtleneck effortlessly. If you’re a tee-and-jeans type of person, wearing a turtleneck can elevate your look for any occasion.

The Rate Wave Ribbed Half Turtleneck Tee Shirt’s scalloped neckline makes any casual outfit cute and comfortable.

Want to take the look to the next level? Turtlenecks with unique necklines bring more pizzazz to your look without any additional effort.

 

They’re Perfect For Layering

Whether you choose to dress modestly or simply can’t stop wearing your summertime faves, layering a turtleneck underneath nearly anything is the perfect way to stay warm, covered, and stylish. Pair a brightly-colored turtleneck under a dark-colored dress (like cherrykoko’s Modern Vent Dress) for cool contrast or a dark, skintight turtleneck (like chuu’s Good Feeling Tee Shirt Vol 3) under a tailored blazer for a super chic, upscale vibe.

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.
