Want to know the latest fashion trends in Korea for 2012? Let me tell you what I see ♥
Punky pop things everyplace!
Studded, plastic, punky, cute items come and go around here lately, but this summer I noticed a huge BOOM of them in the stores all over Seoul. Chunky laser cut acrylic, Skull, studs, skulls AS studs, punk rock spikes of all sizes, stars, etc are being placed on every kind of thing here right now! Former trends like the bunny twist bow and detached collars are getting punky pop makeover as well.
Aside from the metallic embellishment trend, textures and materials are being combined a lot~ twisted chunky plastic chains with thin metal and such. Lots of black and white combos with pops of color thrown in, but many other colors are around as well like creamy pink~ It is more because Koreans prefer to wear lots of greys and blacks it seems, but you can find color variations of items in this style!
these embellished pieces are being used and remixed into more “normal” styles as well…. think like a pretty business blouse with a punk studded cuff!
Very large or over-sized tops with leggings or tight pants and over-sized clutches are also everyplace right now and being used in these looks.

I’m really enjoying this trend because it is tempting me to buy new pieces that I would have not tried to pull off in the past. Its an “edgy” style, but it also has a very playful and fun thought process behind it + you can mix in lots of fun colors! What do you think? Do you like this look or pieces in it? Tigers, legos, and super large flat clutches are also getting sprinkled and used in the looks above ♥ I’ll share an outfit and some fun things I bought from this new trend in another post ^^
