Aside from catchy ditties like I Got a Boy and Sorry Sorry, swoon-worthy dramas like Secret Garden and Boys Over Flowers, and of course, mouth-watering food like dukbokki and bulgogi, there is one more thing to love about South Korea: fashion! 

The folks at Ministry of Retail, a homegrown women's fashion label, have hopped on the K-fashion bandwagon too, launching their label online in 2009. Husband and wife Vincent Goh and Yvonne Tan's labour of love has paid off, as the label’s success has skyrocketed since its establishment.  
Fancy dressing like your favourite K-pop star? Take your pick from Ministry of Retail after studying these celebrities' style!

1. Electric blue blazers

Girls Generation’s Tiffany is totally working that blue blazer, pairing it with lemon-yellow peep-toe heels, black shorts and a black handbag. I love the asymmetrical hem of her t-shirt, as well as the black lining of her blazer. Those little details really make her outfit come together. Plus, her eye-smile completes the come-hither but polished look. 

Likewise, Tiffany's group-mate Jessica also experimented with electric blue, except that this time, she chose a longer coat instead. The long coat, paired with brown heels and a printed dress, made for a more laidback look than that of Tiffany's. 

 As exemplified by Tiffany, electric blue is perfect with black. And this blazer from MOF is both chic and sporty, thanks to the loose silhouette.

2. Overall shorts

Remember Girls Generation's breakout song, Gee? They were already sporting overall shorts then, except theirs came in candy colours like hot pink, lime green and yellow. 

For a less kiddy version, opt for silver metallic overall shorts for an effortlessly chic look. Pair it with a white t-shirt (not another shimmery number, please!) and you are all set to hit the clubs. 

3. Houndstooth prints

The members of girl group Miss A look absolutely darling in their ladylike houndstooth get-ups. 

I'm a little obsessed with the cropped top trend that's making its way back now. And what better way to add a ladylike touch to the California-girl style than with houndstooth prints?

4. Pastels

The girls of Girls Generation look like a dream in their cotton candy hues.

What's even better than a pastel yellow dress? A pastel yellow dress with a Peter Pan collar! The preppy chic style is right up my alley, and especially more so when classic pieces like these come in candy colours that are so appropriate for spring and summer. I'm in love!

5. White and sheer

Yes, it is possible to wear white and sheer pieces without revealing your undergarments. See how Yoo In Na, the leading lady of drama series Queen In-hyun's Man, did it with a simple flared dress? Keep accessories to a minimum and let the understated simplicity of the outfit do the talking.

There's nothing quite as elegant and classic as a white collared top. But to shake things up a little, go sheer! This top from MOF goes well with black capris a la Audrey Hepburn if you want to take on the monochromatic trend. The sheer panels and embroidered details add a current update to the regular button-up.

Now, which is your favourite trend? I’ll love to hear from you!
