Slowand has a distinct laid back vibe in most of their styling and so if you are drawn to the slow lifestyle (think Kinfolk), you might enjoy looking at their earth-toned pieces. Basic tops and pants for everyday wear are also available but if you are looking for dresses that are fuss free yet chic enough for an OOTD shot, this site is made for you!
Dint is one of my personal favourite websites for style inspiration. Their pieces are attention-grabbing yet classy, which I’m sure the uptown girls at heart would appreciate. If you are looking to achieve that sophisticated look, you should try picking up something from them.
Not forgetting the oppas:
This site offers major bargains for menswear, with shirts and pants starting at USD10. This is a one-stop site where you can shop for a complete, head-to-toe look with a selection of bags and shoes.
Styleman is another great and inexpensive site for the trendy men. New arrivals are usually heavily discounted and we love their styling acumen—definitely useful for those who want to embrace the K-fashion look.
Flyday has an overall preppy styling vibe that will surely inspire any fashionable guy to up their pairing game. They have a score of suit sets that are priced below USD100 and most clothing mid range in pricing but still fairly reasonable. You can find other accessories like bags and socks as well!
Jay Gatsby from the The Great Gatsby would probably shop from this site if he was Korean. A tad different from the sites above, the selection here is more sophisticated and sleek. They have everything from basic tops to suits; and for men who are on the bulkier side, fret not as the models here too have the similar physique.
Local designers / select store sites:
If you are into local fashion brands instead, you can shop here for various women and men‘s clothings to sleepwear all in one site. It can be overwhelming with the huge selection of brands they offer, so going by fashion brands could be the best way to navigate. Some of the popular brands that our Shoppers like are Stereo vinyls and Nohant.
