If you’re already a K-drama fan, you know that a big part of their movies is the fashion. You may not eat their food or know how to speak Korean, but you can at least dress like them. Here are ten clothing items that will help with that.
1. Expensive-ass suits
Pantsuit o, skirt suit o, sha buy the one that will make you look like you come from money. Spice it up: sew an Aso-Oke or adire suit; who knows you may start a trend. See fashunz.
2. Long coats
There’s no reason why you should wear this in a hot country, but if it’s your cup of tea, you need a long coat to look like your favourite K-drama character. Add those chunky boots and it’s a lewk. If you want to enter public transport, sha hold a small vial of perfume, abeg.
3. A square neckline summer dress
You can find this one anywhere. Tap into your inner romantic K-drama fan and buy as many as you can afford. Last last you can buy them for 1k in bend-down-select, or if you’re feeling rich, buy from Instagram “thrift” vendors.
4. Oversized cotton sweaters
Not the one that you stole from your partner. Use your own money to buy a nice oversized round-neck sweater in a bright colour of your choice. To nail the look, try to slack the hands. You are trying to look cute here.
Will you look like a child? Maybe, but aren’t we all trying to manifestheal our inner child? Overalls are cute and easy to find these days anyway. Pair them with nice t-shirts or blouses and there you go.
6. White shirts
How else can you look like the K-drama CEO? Bonus point if you fold the sleeves unprovoked when no one sent you message. I don’t know why anyone would wear white in this country sha, especially when someone’s child can decide to wipe their hand on your shirt inside danfo.
7. Fitted straight denim
Fitted, not skinny, please. It’s more like boyfriend jeans but fitted. The point is to look like someone from the 90s, which is everyone these days anyway.
8. Tote bag
Tap into your inner artsiness and buy as many white tote bags as you can. It makes you look like secondary school students in a K-drama.
9. Oversized blazer
You don’t even need to buy this one. Just steal it. Your mum or dad probably have a lot of old blazers they don’t want anymore. If theirs are too old-fashioned for you, you can buy something more modern, just be ready to cry hot tears for your account balance.
10. Denim shirts
You should have this one in your wardrobe already. Pair it with a nice t-shirt and your oversized blazer and look at you goo: a Nigerian K-drama character with street fashunz.
