  • Going to Seoul to lindy hop

    Hello! Do you love travelling and lindy hopping? Seoul is the city for you.

    One of our favourite looks sees young women pairing bobbed hair at a classic length, with bold red lips. Then a long, soft knit cardigan or sweater over a calf-length skirt for a classic urban Seoul style.

    Trousers. The slim leg is still here, particularly appropriate for the crowded metro, but Seoul is saying annyeong to the wider leg as well. The cooling weather says wool wool wool, in earth tones, pleated fronts, and classic herringbone. Braver souls take their geometrics larger with oversized plaids and bold contrast.
