The Philippines is not so foreign to all things Korean now. From Super Junior to Secret Garden, to Bingsu and Bulgogi, Korean culture has become ever-present in our lives. And it surely added personality to our already colorful nature, most especially when it comes to dressing up. Korean fashion is well-loved not only because our biases wore it, but because it's fun! And it's what fashion should be—so going all out on your K-pop-inspired wardrobe for a week is totally fine.
Good news to all Korean devotees (and for brave fashionistas as well!), there's now a place where you can buy all-Korean garb! Yes, you need look no further as they're all in one store, in affordable prices to boot!
Mall of Korea opened its doors to the public mid-July of this year, welcoming everyone who wants easy access to the latest Seoul fashion finds. Spot your favorite Korean brand and mix and match to your heart's desire as you'll never run out of options from their great selection of clothes!
"Koreans aren't afraid to express themselves through fashion without compromising style and comfort, so that's what we want our shoppers to realize," shares Head Manager Ken Esplana. Planning on a shopping spree this weekend but have no idea how to build Korean-inspired outfits? Start with these three looks:
Street style. Make a statement with eye-catching (literally) top and distressed jeans. Sling this red satchel for a pop of color and slip on these sandals to show off your newly pedicured toe nails.
Casual. Whether you're headed to your afternoon tea with the girls or meeting up with your crush, a crop top and midi-skirt should be your go-to pieces for a laidback feel. Update your look by layering a patched denim button down. Cap it off with a hat and pristine sneakers.

Formal. Throwing a blazer will make your look dressier in an instant! Add sparkly jewelry and nude pumps and you're ready to turn heads!
Also, Ken and their team suggests these style tips, too:
1. Pick your accessories from OBBA Seoul and Pink Martini.
2. Jackets and blazers for formal or casual occasions.
3. Bring out your girly side with pastel tops and skirts.
