How to Find the Perfect Statement Piece
‘Statement piece’ is a term you’ve probably heard before in fashion circles, and it's just as relevant when it comes to Korean fashion.
Maybe you want to show off your personality, or perhaps you want to express your mood. Either way, a statement piece is not only fashionable, but also gives a little bit of insight into the kind of person you are.
Of course, not everything can be a statement piece. Your favourite oversized t-shirt might be representative of your love for hypebeast fashion, but a statement piece needs to be something that catches people’s attention immediately.
Let’s take a look at a few qualities that make for a good statement piece!
Not only are bright colours a foolproof way of getting people’s attention, they’re also a great way to express how you’re feeling. You might want to wear yellow if you’re feeling cheerful, red if you’re feeling a little flirty, and if you’re feeling a little wild, hot pink might be perfect for you.

You don’t have to dress according to your feelings all the time. Sometimes, just wearing something that makes people’s heads turn is good enough, and patterns are a great way of catching people’s eye!
And since there are so many different kinds of patterns—from stripes, to plaid, to animal prints—people can still learn a little bit about your personality depending on which patterns you like.
