If you’re a lover of aesthetic Korean fashion then you’ve probably scrolled Pinterest for hours trying to perfect an Acubi style outfit. With so many TikTok fashion creators and influencers alike sporting the style, it’s no wonder we all want in on the aesthetic that serves trendy AF but is functional! ⛓️
One of our favorite things about Acubi fashion is that it promotes a capsule wardrobe. Subverted basic pieces and neutral tones that can be worn over and over again in many different ways, giving you the most out of your clothes!
If you want to incorporate more Acubi style pieces into your wardrobe but don’t know where to start, we’re here to offer a helping hand ˚◕⩊◕˚
From K-dramas to our fave’ Kpop stars, it’s safe to say that the Hallyu wave has inspired more than our taste in music and television, but also Douyin makeup, the classic whimsical fringe hairstyle and of course, Acubi fashion. But what is Acubi fashion and where did it hail from, you ask? Let’s get into it…
Born from a combination of trends and styles, the Acubi aesthetic uses different elements of other subtrends such as the resurgence of Y2K, the crafty makeshift silhouettes of subversive basics, and also cyber and digital accessories.
If you're susceptible to the edgy street style videos in Seoul or Tokyo on social media, then you’ll be familiar with how big it is in the East and just how popular it has become in the western world. I mean, it is mesmerizing to look at, so go figures.
Subverted basics, wide leg pants, and knitwear are all staples when it comes to the Acubi aesthetic. You probably already have these items in your closet, but it’s all about how you style and wear them. The korean-inspired aesthetic favors the effortlessly cool vibe, not looking like you’ve tried too hard when in reality you’ve probably spent hours frantically scrolling through TikTok for styling inspo.
Wondering what Minga pieces you need to nail the Acubi aesthetic? Don’t worry, we’ve got so many options for you. Let’s start our way from the bottom up! First is a basic pair of wide fitting or baggy pants such as our Cleo Y2K Cargo Pants in either gray or green, it’s up to you! Next up we opt for our Skull Crusher Black Asymmetric Top to bring that subversive basics touch, styled underneath our Olivia Vegan Leather Bomber Jacket In Black for a practical finish. Simply add some chunky shoes, an over-the-body strap bag and statement sunnies for a coffee or shopping date ready outfit.
