The latest hit Korean drama It’s Okay Not To Be Okay has solidified its near-cult status as one of the best dramas this year. From its intriguing characters to the unique plotline that addresses mental health issues, the drama is binge-worthy.
Shot in beautiful cinematography that just adds to romance, the show follows actress Seo Ye Ji, who plays a famous children’s book author, and and Kim Soo Hyun, a cynic psychiatric ward nurse who doesn’t believe in love, as they heal each other’s emotional traumas.
The main leads have amazing chemistry, but its Seo Ye Ji that totally stole the show as Ko Moon Young. Her cold and arrogant demeanour fits in well with her bold style as she breezes her way through life. While we’re not so keen on her aloof personality (don’t worry — she opens up as the show progresses), her eye-catching style has solidified her status as one of the fashion icons of the K-drama world. You might say we’re even a lil’ bit obsessed with her fashion too.
Take a peek at her best looks to see how you can channel your inner Seo Ye Ji too!
Moon Young loves her coords — matching sets are part of her ensemble that just screams power-boss-lady. The short skirts accentuates her legs, but the fitted jacket gives off business-like vibes. She often pairs them with heels for a sophisticated edge, but you can always swap them for sneakers for a more casual look.
The matching sets can also be mixed with your other basic separates for even more looks, which make them a good fashion choice!
Floral flowy tops are great subtle statement pieces. They don’t need much accessorising (think a simple bracelet or just stud earrings), and can go with any bottoms. Nicely styled hair will make this look seem put together, with a simple elegance.
Ethereal white dresses
The white dress is like the more ethereal and feminine version of the Little Black Dress. Best paired with neutral accessories like rose gold, off-whites, and heeled stilettos. Carry a purse for smart occasions and a crossbody bag for casual dates.
Bold prints and textures are a bold move, but not one that you shouldn’t shy away from. A printed top can be toned down with a blazer for the office, before it comes off for a night’s out with the girls!
Big, ruffled tops can be a bit intimidating, but you can take away the clever use of the corset or a statement belt. The right belt will take your outfit from complete to extra fabulous. It also defines your waistline for an accentuated silhouette. Major score!
Accessoring is almost like an art on Moon Young. Her perfectly kept manicures and dainty (sometimes mismatched) jewelry are the key to always looking put together. A pair of oversized cat-eye sunglasses hide natural eyes with a bit of sparkly eyeshadow, with Moon Young usually sporting rosy or cherry red lips. Play around with different geometric shapes when choosing to add a pair of sunglasses for some feminine edge.
