Style Rules We Learned From Descendants of the Sun’s Kang Mo Yeon
These days everybody seems to be hooked on the latest Korean craze, Descendants of the Sun, from students to DOTA players, and even the Candy team! When we're not busy swooning over Song Joong Ki's character Yoo Si Jin, we're girl crushing hard on Song Hye Kyo's character Kang Mo Yeon. While snagging a dreamy soldier may be a little bit far-fetched in the real world, stealing Mo Yeon's look is totally doable with these super easy style rules we got from the show.
1. Look pretty in pastels.
While Mo Yeon's job requires her to be tough and strong, she easily balances it out with pastel clothing to show off her soft and feminine side. Take a cue from Mo Yeon and choose pastel pieces for an effortless chic and fresh look.
2. An oversized button-down can take your look from zero to hero.
A tee and cut-offs combo is the girl's usual go-to for a casual, but cute outfit. For a quick style upgrade grab an oversized button-down and throw it over your get-up for a comfy, but still edgy look.
3. Go monochromatic.
A monochromatic look is the easiest way to elongate your body and look slimmer without breaking a sweat. Rock an all-white monochromatic look for a fresh and fun outfit perfect for beating the crazy Manila heat.
4. Stock up on shirtdresses.
You can always count on shirtdresses to give you comfort and style without asking for anything in return. Opt for pieces in solid colors for a basic look, or plaid printed ones like Mo Yeon’s for a tougher and more masculine appeal.
5. When in doubt, always aim for an A.
You can be sure that when you’re feeling a bit bloated that an A-line cut will always always flatter your body. Rely on a cute A-line skirt and match it with different tops from tees to blouses depending on your mood to create a fashionable outfit.
6. Never underestimate the power of a wristwatch.
When talking accessories girls usually focus on statement necklaces, oversized heirloom style earrings, sunnies, and cocktail rings that they usually forget about wristwatches. But a strong wristwatch can easily add a style boost to your entire look, and help you show the world that you mean nothing, but serious business.
Descendants of the Sun will air this year on GMA7.
