In Seoul, there are so many different foods, fashion trends and styles that it’s hard for me to fully devote to one.

While strolling around the city, I spotted this Fashionista’s denim vest ensemble, which exemplified the grunge-era look perfectly. Denim is undoubtedly coming back into fashion not only for this season, but for the upcoming seasons as well.

This Fashionista wore a black skirt under the sheer black dress, and polished the overall look with an oversized denim vest. The vest not only staples her overall look, but it also plays as a perfect layering piece when mixing an article of clothing. This Fashionista is a perfect example of wearing the color black in the hot summer weather. Her choice of the sheer black fabric appears to be edgy and cool at the same time.

I was not only captivated by this Fashionista’s grunge-era slouchiness, but as well as her choice in shoes and accessories. The small touch of red and purple stacked on her arms, and a touch of white on her converse shoes scream a modern yet youthful appeal.
