2022 Korean Summer Fashion Trend

Arts & Culture Lifestyle
Korea has 4 distinctive seasons and now that summer is officially here, it’s time to check out what you should wear to stay in trend. I personally like fashion and I like to watch people and check out what they are wearing when riding the bus or the subway. 

It’s a good way to see where the trend is headed. It’s expected that this summer will be extremely hot with high UV lights from the sun. Therefore I recommend that you go for something lightweight, stretchable to ensure you are comfortable this summer as it can get humid as well. With that being said, let’s take a look into five "Insider Items"

1. Denim (too classic?)

Denim shorts or jeans will never go out of style even at this time of the year. As a classic piece of clothing, ripped denim shorts are in fashion once again. You can wear them baggy or tight but the current trend is on the baggy side. Make sure you get the light blue colored once that are light and stretchable. A good place to get one would be 8 Seconds as they have trendy clothes for cheap.

2. Canvas Bags

Canvas tote bags are very trendy in their 20’s, making them a recognizable Korean summer fashion trend. Apart from their simplicity and functionality, these bags are commonly seen among daily commuters for their timeless style. For casual summer looks, you can count on this type of bag to house all of your everyday travel essentials. I suggest you go for plain beige or off-white color so it goes well with any outfit. It’s a great way to stay in trend as well as staying in comfort in the hot summer.

3. Linen Pants

Linen is the best material in summer. Beige baggy linen pants are definitely a good investment as it dries quickly and doesn’t stick to your skin. Linen is light and tiny holes make you stay dry in the summer. If you want the versatility of linen pants for a day out, stock on basic colors like brown, beige, white, grey, and black so you can easily pair them with any garment. A more comfortable fit would be loose or wide-leg pants as linen is not as easily stretchable as other fabrics.

4. Hat

A lot of Koreans already owns Helen Kaminski hat and it’s in trend this year again. You need a hat this summer as we expect strong UV light which can damage your skin. I suggest choosing beige as a color as it goes well with any other clothes. They offer many different styles of hats so choose the one you like to stay in trend.

5. Sunglasses

This accessory is definitely needed this summer to protect your eyes. You do not need an expensive pair of sunglasses and the current trend is buying something affordable rather than spending a fortune on luxurious brand names like Gucci and Prada. Luckily, big lenses are in trend and it’s a good way to protect large area of your face as well as staying in trend.
