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,

Out & About with Allbuenothings – Humans of KOODING

Natalia and Olga are two New York based fashion bloggers who have amazing style! Even though the weather has drastically dropped in the East Coast, they show us how they still manage to stay warm and stylish at the same time.

You can definitely see their unique sense of style through the pieces that each of them chose. Natalia went for a rocker chic look by styling our Tie Neck Strap Sweater with a leather jacket paired with AIN’s Black Zipper Leather Skirt. She accessorized with a cute baker boy hat and some long boots to keep herself warm, perfect for a day out in town.

The sweater is really warm and soft-just perfect for NYC weather.” -Natalia

Olga went for two different looks using the pieces she chose. Her first look (left) is stylish and edgy. She paired our Dum Dum Belt Skirt with a leather jacket and long boots to match. She adds a hint of baby blue with a warm sweater underneath and cute earrings to top it off. Her second look is feminine and sophisticated with our pink Confession Dress matched with a pink long overcoat. We love how she kept the consistency of her pink color theme while not allowing it to be too overbearing. A hat and long boots to match completes her look and she is ready for the day!

You can wear it both to work and going out with friends“-Olga

Timeless Denim: the Fashion Staple You Can’t Live Without

It’s official: denim is THE fabric that flatters every possible body shape. It is also hard working and super comfy to wear. Plus, it’s a staple of global fashion and an all-time favorite Korean fashion online buy. Do you need more reasons to love it?

Accidentally discovered in France in the 18th century, but brought to fame by Levi Strauss during the Gold Rush, denim today graces everyone’s wardrobe. It’s versatile and can be styled in so many ways that, whether you are super-feminine or a tomboy, you will find at least one denim item to help you create a host of new favorite looks.

KOODING.com wants to help you step up your denim game with a few cozy-chic pieces that will always stay relevant and, as this fabric happens to be huge in every season’s trend stakes, here are some ideas you can’t go wrong with.

 Honey Span Vintage Napping Skinny

Investing in a new pair of skinnies is always a smart move, unless you prefer them cropped and distressed, or perhaps you’re more of a boyfriend jeans type.

All Denim Jumpsuit

Denim jumpsuits and overalls are great options for when you need a sleek look without the effort, not to mention the good old denim shirt that exudes effortless cool. Denim jackets can be layered over trendy tees or soft knits and paired with the bottoms of your choice, while a basic denim dress can be dressed up with heels and an oversized belt or down with cool sneakers.

What we love most about denim is that with proper styling it works from morning to after dark.  Be ready to embrace this global fashion hero (in case you are not obsessing over it already) and remember there is no wrong way to wear it. www.KOODING.com.

Comfy and Casual for the Winter – Humans of KOODING

It’s a struggle every morning deciding if I want to look cute or if I want to be comfortable.” –Vivian 

The perfect middle ground is what everyone searches for whenever they go shopping, as well as affordability and quality of course! Cardigans are a great item to have in your closet because they go with anything. Whether you woke up to your first alarm or snoozed all the way to your 10th, throw on a cardigan and you’ll look ready for the day ahead.

I’m sure some of you busy college students struggle with balancing school, work, friends, and more. Blogger Vivian can relate as she explains the hectic life of being a full-time college student and how she deals with managing her school work as well as her style. Make sure to read all about it on her blog www.simplyviv.com!

3 Men’s Korean Fashion Trends to Wear this Winter

Men have become more interested in fashion over the past years giving the industry’s biggest talents further reasons to come up with a myriad of exciting new trends. To give you a hint of what’s hot this winter, we picked the top 3 trends you should be wearing in the upcoming months. No excuses

2 Ways Padding Vest

Padded Outerwear

What was once the favorite trend for chilly weather of the British country aristocracy is today, thanks to global fashion, a must-wear for every urban gent who embraces a sporty-chic style. From padded bombers to padded oversized coats to padded vests, this is the best way to go easy on all those under layers because cozy padding will keep you well insulated. We believe this to be the new obsession of the season, so mark padded comfort wear on your to-buy list.

Vent Turtleneck Knit Vest

Camel Vibes

If you are not a fan of strong colors (bright orange, we are looking at you), you will be happy to know that any shade of camel works just as great this winter. The subdued color does not limit to outerwear anymore, and can either be sported from head to toe, broken with cream or navy, or paired with prints.  A camel coat is obviously a classic, but camel pants, camel cardigans and camel turtlenecks (by the way, the high neck happens to be In this season, too) are also sure to put any guy on the style map.

: Pleated Sweatshirt

In Your Face Statements

Designers thought long and hard this season and decided that upgrading basic items to first class Instagram status meant printing oversized words and statements on their clothes (so, in case you are strongly opinionated about something, don’t be afraid to say it with your fashion). Everyday sweatshirts and knits suddenly become more interesting thanks to captions in capital letters, don’t you think? If you don’t mind all eyes on you, this trend will get your nod of approval.

Top 5 November Stylist Picks

New month means new wardrobe! Here are the top five picks from our KOODING team.

  1. Everyone needs a good leather jacket in their wardrobe. Our Girls on Top Rider Jacket by Kong Style is lightweight and super soft, perfect for a night out! It doesn't swallow your figure when wearing it and you won't have to worry about lugging it around everywhere because of the lightweight material. It can make any outfit a little bit edgier and put together!
  2. You can't go wrong with knits! They're oversized, super comfortable, always in style, and they keep you warm. The Loose Box Knit will be a perfect addition to any closet due to its versatility and distinctive grey hue that is difficult to come across.
  3. I always have a hard time finding a good denim skirt but I really like the Come Over Skirt because of the edginess that is displayed through the cut outs. I know we're in the colder seasons, but who says you can't wear a skirt to add some flare to your outfit?
  4. To add some girl-y vibes to this outfit, we accessorized with these Rose Earrings by SOO n SOO. The pink color is subtle while still giving a small pop of color to any outfit. Also, the chain hangs behind the ear for a unique twist!
  5. Last but not least, shoes! Boots are a must-have year round and they definitely come in handy for November. Don't worry about your feet hurting because the Banding Low Ankle Boots are super comfortable and easy to stroll around in, perfect for travel!

Get to Know our KOODING Team!

Hi! Welcome to KOODING’s blog.

It’s always hard to put a face to a brand, ESPECIALLY our brand because half of our team hates getting photographed. If we look like a ghost team, I can ensure that we’re not My name is Grace and I’m here to introduce our KOODING U.S. team to you. I have to work with what I’ve got so we’re going old school style (in other words, without the fancy pictures/filters, videos, etc. just my beautiful drawings).

Let’s start with the two head honchos of the team.
Justin & Steve.   Don’t worry, you’re not seeing double. Justin and Steve are twin brothers that have a passion for business, fashion, cars, and marketing.If you ever need help with detail and analytics, just ask Justin. He’s a pro.
Steve is skilled in engineering and jokes. He’s always one to say something witty during a team meeting. Don’t ask them where to eat for lunch though, you’ll die of hunger.

Belle   is the mother of the team. If you’re ever sick, Belle will always have some vitamin C lying around. As the head of marketing, she is organized, detailed, and probably the healthiest one in the office. OH never mind, I forgot about Kendall.

Kendall  is in charge of graphics, web design, and sarcastic comments. Don’t ever believe what he says the first time, wait till the second. Kendall doesn’t eat…ever. I’m not sure if that makes him the healthiest or the most likely to survive a huge disaster.

Helen  is in charge of operations and she’s the one to go to if you ever need to find something. Reliability, speed, and survey taking are Helen’s strengths. She has a hideout in our office where she likes to stay and she goes on some crazy adventures during the weekend. If you want a story, just go to Helen.

Jim  is the newest addition to our team and he’s the master backend developer of our office. I have no idea what he does half the time because I don’t know anything about code but he’s the pro. His computer is always really dim so don’t think his computer is off, that’s just his preference.

Now you’ve come full circle back to me 🙂

I’m Grace  and I’m in charge of digital content creation / social media. Probably the most unhealthiest in the office, I’ll always have a snack lying very close by. I also have the largest computer in the office which Steve always makes fun of but I’m not complaining 🙂 Being the youngest in the office is fun but difficult. I’m learning a lot and working at a startup is always crazy, or so I’ve heard, but enjoyable nonetheless.

I hope you made it this far and I hope you got a small taste of what our U.S. KOODING Team is like! I will be doing my best to update our KOODING Blog as often as possible so you can get to know us a little bit better! Stay subscribed and talk to y’all soon!

The Best Men’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2017 (and a bit of Korean fashion advice)

Men’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2017

Apart from the de rigueur classic pieces, every man’s wardrobe needs a few trendy items that confirm him as a guy with his finger on the fashion pulse. Every season, KOODING.com strives to offer male customers innovative and impossibly stylish products to create eye-catching outfits, and this fall is no different. Here are some of the hottest global fashion trends that you should invest in right now (with a bit of luck, they may turn out relevant for seasons to come).

Pleats have made a huge and unexpected comeback straight from the 80’s. You can wear your pleated pants baggy, but we think straight styles look more dapper with a tee or a classic sweater. If you really feel this trend, take it one step further and get a pair of mock pleated joggers, too.

Double-breasted jackets might raise some eyebrows at first, but if you love the glorious 80’s, you will embrace them instantly. The double button rows evoke office wear, but today they can be worn anytime. The secret to channeling the trend right is to choose your jacket oversized and pair it with slim pants so all the emphasis goes towards the top. However, if you are not a fan of this style, just make sure you have a fitted blazer for this season and wear it as often as you can for extra fashion points.

Designers seem to have been feeling the 80’s blues quite much lately, since another big trend of the moment is… anything that was cool back in the day. 80’s nostalgia includes grunge, hip-hop and new wave styles (laid-back sportswear rules), logos and slogans. The bigger the better.
Roll necks, a perennial Korean fashion favorite, are again huge this fall. They can be layered with cozy cardigans or denim jackets, and are perfect for windy days when you’d rather ditch the scarf.

In terms of colors, earthy shades like moss green and orange lead the way, while among the most popular footwear styles are the versatile Chelsea suede boots and the bulky kicks.

www.KOODING.com is here to help every style-conscious man make the best wardrobe choices for every season. Explore the best of Korean fashion online and look your best this fall.

The 4 Fall 2017 Colors You Need to Wear on Repeat

We are keeping busy at KOODING.com these days. Fall is here, and we are already taking inspiration from Pantone’s Fall 2017 fashion color report picking our favorites for this season. Ranking highest on our adore list are four warm and comforting shades that are easy to mix and match and make perfect sense on cool fall days. Read on to discover them.

Perfect Fit Long Jacket

Butterum is the essence of fall: a snug, toasty neutral that has always been a favorite in Korean fashion. A gorgeous mix of camel and cream, this is our go-to shade for subdued coats and soft knits. Layer with confidence over florals and shades of burgundy, forest green, or off-white for classy sophistication.

Women’s Fall Trends for 2017

Ballet Slipper has become overnight our dusty pink obsession. It all started with the oversized Moccs Sweater, continued with the First Love Dress and the sweeter than sweet Heart Attack tee. Since fashion designers loved pairing this candy shade with dazzling silver, we believe our Light Skirt is a cool match for your bubblegum pink items. For an unexpected twist give it a try with bright red, too.

Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2017

To us, Tawny Port is the most passionate fall color. Extremely elegant, this dark look-at-me shade looks as good as a glass of red wine tastes. Right now, our go-to port Korean fashion pieces are the Mood Coat, the stylish For Sa Dress and the comfy Hills Pants. Pair with ankle boots and a dash of lipstick in a complementary burgundy shade. Perfection.

Corset Leather Jacket

Vibrant and evocative, Grenadine is an attention-grabbing hue that is ready to inject any woman with a huge confidence boost. See it for yourself with the show-stopping Look at Me Skirt, sassy Corset Jacket, or the funky Vent Zipup Hoodie. Just don’t be surprised when all those heads are turning. Blame it on grenadine.
