When the summer humidity sets in, we tend to search aimlessly through our closets wondering what we could wear in the extreme heat. And, if the rising temperatures and downpours during monsoon season aren’t bad enough, it is even worse if your clothing doesn’t breathe or is too heavy for the sticky weather. Here are some top Korean fashion tips for dressing in monsoon season in Korea.

Light Colors

As we all may know by now, light colored clothing reflects light (aka the sun) and dark colors absorb it. So, when you are planning to be outside in the smoldering temperatures, it is best to choose light and neutral colors to stay cool. Choose a classic white or a monochromatic beige to create the ultimate summer chic look.

Crop Tops

The crop top is such a great summer staple and the perfect way to stay cool with minimal effort. Perfect for hot days with their mini style and terrific for summer because you don’t have to layer up too much. The crop top is best when worn with high-waisted clothing pieces or layered over dresses.
