With chilly nights and gentle fall winds just around the corner, you need to equip your wardrobe with a few transitional pieces that will get you through the season. However, if you’re not ready to say goodbye to summer, you’ll be glad to hear that your stylish fall outfits can keep their summer flair. Here are several essential pieces that will keep you warm and stylish all through fall. 

1. Cardigan

There’s no outfit you can’t wear with a lovely cardigan. Not only will the perfect cardigan keep you warm and cozy on chilly nights, but it will also help you create a layered and chic look. It’s one of those pieces that you can pair with almost any outfit. If your style is bohemian, wear a beautiful patterned cardigan over that white summer dress. Or, for a casual look, try a loose boyfriend cardigan over a long tank top and a pair of skinny jeans. 

2. Floral Dress

Don’t store away your lovely floral dresses just yet, because they will help you keep the summer spirit all through fall. Wear a woven sweater over a floral dress to stay warm on chilly days, or you can add several layers and use a belt to tie the look together. If you’re a rocker at heart, pair your floral dress with a leather jacket and black leather boots, and you’re bound to rock the fashion scene.

3. Long-sleeve Dress

Not only do long-sleeve dresses come in a variety of styles, they are the perfect choice for the transitional period. On formal occasions, you can wear a fitted long-sleeve dress paired with classic heels. Or, if you’re planning to go on vacation, you can find gorgeous kaftans online and wear them with booties or knee-high boots in the evening.

4. Off-the-Shoulder Top

Off-the-shoulder tops are perfect for creating a casual, yet sensual, look that draws attention to your shoulders. During the summer, you probably wore it with denim shorts for a classic look; however, on those chilly fall nights, skinny trousers and booties are your best friends. To add some personality, grab a patterned scarf or fun crossbody bag. 

5. Safari Shirt

A beautiful safari shirt is yet another piece perfect for fall, as you transition from denim shorts to denim jeans. For a down-to-earth, casual look, tuck your safari shirt into a long skirt, or go for a pencil skirt and kitten heels for a chic, elegant vibe.

6. A Cool Jacket

A statement jacket is a must-have piece that will complete any fall outfit. A stylish, high-quality jacket is definitely worth investing in, because it can last you for years. An edgy leather jacket is a perfect choice for urban looks or to spice up light, feminine pieces. For a more sophisticated look, try a suede jacket with white skinny jeans and block heels.

7. Pencil Skirt

A trendy pencil skirt does not only accentuate your figure; it also elevates your fall outfits. If your style is more posh, you can wear a pencil skirt with a lace shirt and classic heels. And if you’re into more of a casual and cozy look, you can pair it with a loose sweater and sneakers.

 

Taking notes? The weather may be getting colder, but these 7 pieces will help you make the most of your closet and keep the summer spirit all throughout the fall season. 

It’s not the brightest; it’s not the shiniest. But it’s real.

Itaewon, it’s a place to cast off the chains of expectations; it’s a chance to be free and try new things.

Entering a world of all that is foreign, and finding bits and pieces of cultures from all over the world as they resist gentrification.

Going with the flow, taking in the bustling streets. The dazzling sunlight fades to flickering lights and brightens back to a brand new day.

It can’t be restrained, and it can’t be held back.

It may not be rich in money, but it’s rich in heart.

가장 밝은 곳은 아니지만 가장 빛나는 곳도 아니지만 여기는 진실이다.

이태원은 몇몇 다른 사람들의 기대를 져버릴수도 있을 수 있지만  자유롭고 새로운 것을 시도하기엔 적절한 곳이다.

이태원에 이주해온 외국인들이 쌓아놓은 다문화 적인 문화가 서서히 사라져 가고 있는 추세이지만 

이태원만이 가진 자연스럽게 흘러가면서 붐비는 거리를 바라볼 수 있는 곳이며 눈부신 햇빛이 희미한 빛으로 변형돼 다시 찾아오는 내일 처럼 밝아진다.

가둬 둘 수도 없고 억제 할 수도 없는 곳이다. 

가난 한듯 하지만 풍요로운 곳이다.

With the release of Sistar’s final singles, it’s time for us to say farewell to this legendary K-pop group. Releasing songs like clockwork every summer, it’s hard to imagine having fun in the heat without their upbeat, catchy tunes. And it wasn’t just their music, but also their fashion, that had us on the edge of our seats for the last seven years.

To mark their disbandment, we’ve put together three Sistar-inspired looks as a fun way to look back at the group’s career.

씨스타의 싱글 앨범이 발매되면서 씨스타에게 고별인사를 해야 할 것 같다.

시계 같이 매년 여름이 찾아오면 새로운 노래를 발표해 무더운 여름 귀를 즐겁게 해준다. 이제는 씨스타 음악 없이 보내는 여름은 상상할 수 없으며 또한 지난 7년의 시간 동안 패션도 눈을 즐겁게 해줬다.

해체를 앞두고 가수 생활을 뒤돌아보며 씨스타에게서 영감을 받은 스타일을 조립해본다.

Traveling is simultaneously a rewarding and stressful experience: What do I pack? How many outfits? What about shoes?—The possibilities are endless. Catching up with Natalie of Her Personatalie, we got her to show us the ropes with a few of her favorite travel looks.

Reflecting Seoul’s jump into spring, Natalie wears light layers with she pieces that she can mix and match. Pairing the same shoes with multiple outfits, for instance, or cute, simple tees with different outerwear. Basics make it ridiculously easy to get the most out of your luggage space. Check out how Natalie works her magic in the photos below.

여행은 가치 있는 경험이지만 스트레스가 많은 경험이 될 수도 있다. 자신에게 “어떤 옷을 가져갈까? 몇 개를 가져가야 할까? 신발은?” 이라고 생각하면 가져갈 짐이 끝이 없을 수도 있다. 우리는 Her Personatalie 블로거 내를리와 이야기 했으며 그녀에게 ‘여행 룩’ 몇 개를 보여주었더니 그녀는 우리에게 어떻게 집을 싸면 되는지 가르쳐 주었다.

서울에 봄이 오고 있는 만큼 내를리는 가벼운 옷과 함께 맞출 수 있는 옷을 준비한다고 했다. 예를 들어, 다른 옷에 같은 신발을 신거나 단순한 티셔츠와 함께 아우터 여러가지를 입을 수 있다는 꿀팁을 주었다. 베이직 한 옷으로 여행을하면서 스타일을 활용하자. 아래의 사진에 내를리가 어떻게 옷을 스타일을 하는지 확인해보자.

We’ve skipped spring and landed right into summer, but we’re still head over heels for these street style looks. We don’t know about you, but we’re taking notes—can never have too much inspiration!

And the best part? Seoul is becoming more international than ever, attracting fashionistas from all over the globe. With a good mix of Korean and foreign talent, we’ve got the best of both worlds. 

What do you all think? Would you like to see more Korean street style, or global street style? Let us know on Instagram @dispurs.mag.

올해는 봄을 건너뛰고 바로 여름이 되었지만 아래의 스트릿 스타일의 옷은 계절에 상관없이 언제든지 푹 빠질 수 있다. 다양한 곳에서 영감을 받는 곳은 중요하기 때문에 우리는 항상 메모를 하고있다.

스트릿 스타일의 가장 좋은 덤운 ? 서울은 예전 보다 점점 국제적인 도시가 되고 있으며 다른 나라의 패셔니스타들을 끌어모은다. 서울패션위크에서도 한국인과 외국인들이 섞어 있는 모습을 볼 수 있다.

여러분은 어떻게 생각하시나요? 한국과 외국의 스트리트 스타일 중에 무엇을 더 보고 싶으신가요? 인스타그램에서 @dispurs.mag를 태그하고 알려주세요!

Again, Fashion Week is upon us. Though we’re still buried in the depths of winter, we’re already looking to the bitter cold of the F/W ’17 season. For us, street style, in contrast to the glittering light of the runway, is a real and raw interpretation of trends, and this year is no different. So, the first street style trend we’ll look at is statement patterns—Using one bold piece to catch your eye and pairing it with bits of simplicity. There is a plethora of ways to pull off this look, but check out our favorites below for inspiration.

또 다시 패션위크 시즌이 시작 되었다. 아직 겨울이 한창이지만 벌써 F/W ‘17 시즌을 보고 있다. 반짝반짝 빛나는 런웨이와 반대로 스트릿 스타일은 트렌드를 그대로 반영한 순수한 해석이며 올해도 이와 다르지 않다. 가장 처음 소개할 스트릿 스타일 트렌드의 포인트는 패턴이다. 트렌드를 잘 따라하려면 눈길을 사로잡는 포인트를 깔끔한 옷과 함께 입으면 된다. 아래 우리가 가장 좋아하는 사진을 확인해보자.
