Heavyweight knits are everywhere in Seoul – under blazers, over garments, and accompanying other articles of clothing! With rainy days in between consecutively cold, windy winter ones, an extra sweater layer insulates body warmth. Taking the lead in this week’s Korean fashion feature, the knit items below represent only a few of the sweater tricks that Seoulites have up their sleeves.

Here are SeoulSync’s Korean fashion picks of the week:


The cold weather in Seoul merits the use of a beanie and a sweater layer.


Beefy, chunky sweaters are pretty ideal this season.


On those warmer days, a sweatshirt will suffice.


Sometimes it is still super cold outside, but Seoulites are used to it.


All bundled up and ready to go!


Hoodies are still pretty necessary until Spring finally hits.


We’ve seen this kind of layering before in our previous features, and it is still around!


Heavy knits also come in fun colors and textures!


Even for the gentlemen, the sweatshirt layering game is still strong.


We threw this one in here because of the tiny scarf. Thoughts?

There are just a couple more weeks until Springtime in Seoul! Please check back next week for a new feature!
