Gowns and Other Sorts

Monday, January 17, 2011

I really love the gown in this picture. And to find an actual purpose to use this photograph I decided to do a quick little blog post about gowns. 

Gown: a woman's dress, usually with a close-fitted bodice and a long flared skirt, often worn on formal occasions. 

Since prom is coming up (for me anyways), a gown would be the perfect kind of dress for anyone who wants to feel like a princess. It seems like a lot of girls fall more into the casual, short, cutesy kind of style but I find that being more feminine is what would catch people's eyes the most. 

There's something elegant about wearing something long and flattering your figure. It shows your confidence with your body and your confidence being the centre of attention. 

You also would stand out a lot more and would be bound to get compliments all night long.

Korean Women's Fashion

Friday, January 14, 2011

So previously, I covered men's fashion in Korea. Today, I am inspired to do women's because I saw this Korean girl in a very stylish winter outfit earlier on the bus. I really admired her outfit and wished that if I wasn't so prone to the cold (darn you Canadian winter!), I would pull off the same look.

Fashion in Korea today for girls has some variety, but it generally encompasses the following traits: feminine, cute/lovely, and minimal. Of course, you do have some odd ones out, but that is generally for Korean entertainment when they take fashion to a whole new level.

Korean teens love to be cute. Their outfits can range from ruffle skirts to over-sized colourful sweaters. Anything that makes them look youthful and innocent.

For women in their 20s or older, their outfits are more sophisticated and natural. From what I observe, they like to pair a very nice skirt and tights with simple flats or heels. On top, they like to have cardigans or blazers as well as a long necklace to add to the touch.

Women's fashion in Korea is definitely lovely. I adore their chic and elegant style and I hope they will have more influence in North America.
