Known for its creativity and playfulness, Seoul Fashion Week always leaves us with serious style envy, and the F/W 17 shows were no different. On the runways and on the streets, we saw countless Korean models, street-style stars and editors from all over boldly showing off their unique senses of style, starting fun new trends we can’t wait to test out for ourselves. While some of the trends we saw are definitely not for the sartorially faint of heart, the five picks our editors selected for you here are more than approachable. From menswear-inspired separates to the one layering piece you need this season, our favorite new Korean street-style trends are guaranteed to earn a place in your heart (and your wardrobe).

Seoul’s street-style stars weren’t afraid to steal from the boys, as evidenced by the oversized button-downs, pinstripes and pantsuits we saw everywhere—including on Korean model Seo Jiyeon.

The perfect finishing touch to any midi skirt, pair of jeans or jacket? The stylish women of Seoul boldly layered mesh tops over anything and everything they could get their hands on.
