When we think of festival trends we tend to think of California and Coachella – but there is so much more cool style the world has to offer. When we think of Korea and music festivals we automatically think of K-Pop and the bright futuristic feel it has – but it is not alway like that it also has cool refined elements of course, with a bit of their signature flair.

South Korea always seems so ahead of the times when it come to style and are actually a major player on the world stage. Let’s take a look at the two main trends from this season’s festival season.

 Fancy sneakers are a must have – not only for Koreans. They have made their way from being seen as a predominately casual or athletic shoe to being a well respected statement piece with a nice outfit.
