What the locals wore at Seoul Fashion Week and where to get it
Are you Seoul obsessed?

Oh, Seoul. K-Beauty, K-Pop and K-Dramas aside, fashion is yet another front for which kimchi-land has been coming up spades as of late. The country's robust range of local designers, who constantly innovate and hone their artistic voices, have developed the ability to put their very own stamp on any trend that come their way. If it wasn't official last year, it is now: K-Fashion is the next big thing.

Out in full force at Seoul Fashion Week fall/winter 2017, the local showgoers were achingly stylish and daringly on-trend, naturally. What were their latest obsessions? For all you Seoul fiends, here are the three hottest looks you'll spot them in. And yes, you too, can get them stat — at Zalora.

1. SUIT UP TO SHAPE UP 
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. When it comes to suiting, the notion that its best left for business is backwatered. An oversized blazer will take you anywhere from the desk to drinks and beyond this season. Here's the secret: Slip into one that's intentionally cut large, and cinch the waist to give shape.

2. GRANNY'S SUNDAY BEST 
Never thought your nan's love for all things floral will one day serve as inspiration? If there's one thing we learnt from Bieber, it's to never say never. Like the style posse in Seoul, we'll take fall/winter's florals with a dose of vintage. Whether patchworked for an eye-catching pastiche or served straight up in '50s fashion, the mantra for blooms goes something like this: If it ain't old, it ain't gold.

3. AND IT WAS ALL YELLOW...
Checks will hardly break the internet, but the heritage pattern returned in a specific shade in Seoul. You'll find both Korean ladies and gents in acid yellow renditions, from skirts to shirts and trousers. While the classic print ensures you don't stray too far out of your comfort zone, the eye-popping shade is akin to an extra shot of espresso on a Monday morning — necessary and powerful.
