If you’ve been on planet earth in the last 12-36 months, you probably know how the Korean drama scene (k-dramas) have been exploding on Netflix and other popular forms of video streaming.
I, for 1, have been on earth in the alluded months (not that it’s been all that great) and I have DEFINITELY been all about the k-dramas and all the…drama they bring!
I could literally talk (write) about my favorite shows FOREVER, but that’s not why I brought you all here today! I brought you here because, not only are these k-drama storylines on point, but the FASHION..the fashion. 🖤🖤🖤
Honestly the styling and clothes represented in some of these productions are the best I’ve seen since Gossip Girl. One of my absolute favorite wardrobes being Ko Mun Yeong’s from the show “It’s Okay Not To Be Okay”.
I love everything about here runway designer wardrobe, and this one outfit in particular, made me SCREAM when I saw it on screen for the first time. I’m not kidding guys, I screamed. So you can totally guess why I decided to recreate this look!
In the show, Ko Mun Yeong (series name) has just been hired to be a teacher for mentally ill patients and she shows up to “work” sporting a Minju Kim Ruffle Blouse and Loewe Obi Leather waist belt. Both designer pieces that are made to make huge statements and definitely aligned with what has been on trend recently in the fashion world. The corseted belt gives the feminine ruffled shirt an almost militia/armor-like accessory that is very telling of Mun-Yeong’s attitude in the series…(I LOVE HER)!
You can definitely tell that this character is a wealthy girl who is up to date on the latest runway fashions…I mean, everyone of her outfits are straight off the runway.
As for me, I went for a more…affordable approach, especially because a lot of the time when I see looks that I LOVE on other people, they don’t look as good on me. Chalk that up to body-type, height, or attitude, I don’t know; but what I do know is that I like to try out a new style by using cheaper brands or thrifting trends before actually investing in them with the big bucks.
That is why I went for more affordable options like this puff sleeve dress from Shein and this belt skirt from YesStyle to give this look a try. And of course, when on the hunt for specialty pieces, Etsy is a perfect place to look!
Comment how you think I did recreating this look!
