OOTD inspo right here!

With the internet continuously saturating our feeds, trends have easily become accessible and we're left bombarded with fads that are quite confusing to get into. Often, we turn to the glossies and fashion sites to clue us in. And sometimes, we even stalk Instagram accounts of celebrities and bloggers for sartorial tips on how to wear certain trends. But we'll let you in on a little secret: not all fashion inspo are found on social media. Inspiration also wells up from the most unlikely places on the web. Case in point: online shopping sites.

Below, we handpicked 15 easy styling tricks we learned from Korean shopping sites and brands like Stylenanda, Nohant, and SJYP. Scroll down and let's get dressed up, shall we?

For tropical countries like ours, we can't get away with wearing high boots à la Balenciaga. But here's a quick styling trick: wear it under a shirt dress and slip on a pair of shoes in the same shade!

11. Not everything has to be tucked in or hidden.

Take your favorite shirt dress and wear a patent leather skirt on top. Let the hem of the dress peek underneath the skirt for that nonchalant vibe.

12. You can wear fishnets AND socks at the same time.
