Living in Hong Kong, we can’t really dress according to Europe-centric winter outfit inspos. Thick furs and coats just aren’t cut out for Hong Kong winters. And it seems like many of us won’t be able to travel anywhere this holiday season with all the travel restrictions in place. So instead, we’re looking to the East — how the It Girls in Asia are dressing for the 20-odd-degrees weather. We have compiled a few looks from the 2020 Seoul Fashion Week to help you dress appropriately for the moderately warm winter in 852.
Short pleated skirt with a ruffled blouse, and some thigh-high boots, this look exudes bad girl vibes with a hint of preppiness. Unleash your inner delinquent with a bold red lip and a pair of 10 denier stockings.

An oversized shirt layered underneath a lose jumper evokes the memories of the after-school attire. Instead of a pleated skirt this time, go for an animal print skirt for a more casual look. Complete your throwback outfit with a pair of loafers to take a trip down the memory lane.

Biker with A Twist
Soft punk looks are interestingly prevalent at the 2020 SS Seoul Fashion Week. Leather jackets are without a doubt a staple in many’s winter wardrobes. Why not juxtapose it with the brightest skirt that you were always wary of wearing because of the loud colour? Bringing in your daily basics is one of the many useful ways to extend the lifecycle of not just the item itself but your whole wardrobe!

The cosiest and most versatile top = easy shrug-it-on jumper + the forever stylish checkers. Mix this with a simple shirt dress to create the effortlessly cool look. Throw in some black leather to add a sprinkle of punk.

Can anyone scroll through a fashion week street style photo album without seeing a blazer? You already know the answer. A well-tailored blazer, either boxy or fitted, brings versatility to your outfit. On a warmer winter day in Hong Kong, wear it with your favourite animal print dress for a fun night out. Pile a winter coat on when the temperature drops.
