From discovering new K-dramas, to rewatching old faves, to cooking Korean food at home, this quarantine has given us the space to immerse ourselves in all things Hallyu, and we’re not complaining. As fashion girls, we naturally pull a trick or two from K-drama stars who have stolen our hearts with their tasteful style. Well, OG blogger Patricia Prieto is one such fashionista, and she’s way ahead of the whole flock—she’s recreated outfits from three shows!
Since most of the looks featured in K-dramas come from designer brands, you might immediately think that these outfits are only the stuff of dreams, but Patricia proves that by spotting key details of each character’s signature style, you can turn this K-drama dream into a reality. *cue applause*
Check out how she achieved outfits from some of her favorite series below:
1. Jo Yi Seo from Itaewon Class
Unlock her style with: edgy black separates and tailored blazers
The fearless Jo Yi Seo (Kim Da Mi) asserts her individuality through edgy streetwear which she often mixes with structured pieces like blazers or dresses down with cardigans. Patricia Prieto nails Jo Yi Seo’s style with black trousers and tops, tailored blazers, and kick-ass boots. If you don’t own a pair of boots, your favorite sneakers can be an alternative.
2. Kim Mi So from What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?
Unlock her style with: pencil skirts, blouses, and heels
Given Kim Mi So’s (Park Min Young) occupation, her outfits are office-friendly and modest, but chic nonetheless. That said, you can easily cop her style by slipping into a pencil skirt and a sleek blouse in a simple design. Pull out your favorite pumps or kitten heels, and match with any office-appropriate handbag, and you’re good to go!
Patricia even included one of Kim Mi So’s casual look for good measure, and all you need are jeans, a logo tee, and a cardigan to throw on top.
3. Sung Deok Mi from Her Private Life
Unlock her style with: a monochromatic outfit or pantsuit
When Sung Deok Mi (Park Min Young) isn’t busy living her double life as a fangirl of idol Cha Shi An, she looks every bit the formidable art curator that she is in powerful pantsuits (like that iconic hot pink one!) or monochromatic outfits. Here, Patricia simply whipped out a pantsuit she already owns and finished the look with heels and a matching handbag.
However, if you’re looking to recreate Deok Mi’s undercover ensemble, pile on a black hoodie, sweats, and a face mask—it’s even a look you can seriously consider wearing IRL, now that we’re all required to wear face masks in public.
