Asian fashion is all about simplicity combined with head turning elements. When you walk the streets in Asia, you’ll notice most of the outfits are functional and fashionable at the same time.
Channel the Asian street vibe with these fashion essentials and walk the streets like a true Fashionista.
Colors that Pop
Korean and other Asian fashion clothing lines use colors that pop. This is what puts life into Asia’s busiest streets. Unlike other cities where people wear formal black and white outfits, Asians include bright colors in their wardrobe. You may see someone crossing the street wearing a pair of orange pants with a simple white top. You may even bump into a girl wearing a hot pink blazer over a black dress.
Printed clothing is popular among Asian girls. You’ll see different patterns and prints on tees, blouses, dresses, and sweaters. Some fashionistas stick with the conventional print over plain outfit. There are also those who experiment with the bold print on print wardrobe. Aztec, floral, and oriental patterns are popular in different parts of Asia. In Korea, you’ll also find cute and unique prints, which the country is known for.
Pumps and Boots
One of the best features of Asian street fashion is the use of pumps and boots in different styles. Visit Tokyo and you’ll feel like you’re on a fashion runway. You’ll find girls in fashionable boots and pumps. Mix and match your high-heeled shoes with your dresses and jeans to blend with the crowd.
