There's just no denying the hallyu ("Korean wave"), is there? K-pop, K-dramas, and lately Korean makeup and fashion have been steadily infiltrating our national consciousness over the past decade or so.
In any case, if you're a fan of Korean fashion, chances are you've already heard of the super-popular e-commerce destination that is StyleNanda. Founded in 2004, the brand has recently branched out and opened a handful of boutiques across Korea and Hong Kong. If you haven't heard of it before, StyleNanda is a fast fashion destination (think H&M or Forever 21) that focuses on making sure the latest trends are readily available at a (very) competitive price point — so many of their carefully curated outfits have a deliberate K-pop look to them.
Unfortunately, we have yet to get a StyleNanda brick-and-mortar store of our very own (though, what with recent hits like Uniqlo, maybe we'll be seeing one soon) — but that's okay, because we've got their English online shop to keep us company in the mean time. And said online shop is absolutely filled to the brim with fresh picks for summer! So without further ado, let's take a look at some of their best summer looks:
It's after Memorial Day and before Labor Day, so why not bust out the LWDs? Take note of this whole ensemble — a white frock look extra fab with round sunnies, pink lipstick and Heidi braids.
With the new film hitting theaters in a year and a half, it's time to start stocking up your closet, and StyleNanda's Star Wars collection marries nerdy and trendy absolutely perfectly.
StyleNanda has some of the cutest prints around. Case in point: These bubblegum pink banana-printed dresses.
Their swimwear runs the gamut from high fashion avant garde to retro classic, and all are fabulous.
StyleNanda hits the nail on the head when it comes to je ne sais quoi-infused graphic T-shirts. Just add a pair of short shorts and a beanie and you're good to go!
If you're less into cool girl-duds and more into an ultra-feminine look, you can also find absolutely gorgeous floral dresses on the site.
No matter your look, chances are you'll find something!
