This week we were interested in how Seoulites wear black. A staple color in most wardrobes, black can never go wrong! One of the most exciting ways to wear black is by wearing different textures of it. Another way is by juxtaposing the color against another one to bring contrast. How is this done? See how Seoul did it below!

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

Not all black colors are equal! One black color may have more blue tones in it and another may have more green tones in it. Under sunlight, the differences are easier to see.
