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:


The color black is texturized, allowing the color to be seen differently along this outfit.


Black is brought against brighter colors.


Black is contrasted by its opposite color — white.


Black is such a sleek color.


Black helps graphics pop out, especially if the images are cute!


The color always works well in a more professional outfit.


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.


Absolutely the cutest black top.


For the gents, black is a very masculine color.


Black is a very versatile color! How do you play with black?

We hope you enjoyed this post! As always, tune in next week for another dose of Korean fashion!
