8 Edgy-Meets-Sweet Snaps, Direct From Seoul

It's hard enough to travel from point A (our homes) to point B (probably, R29 HQ) without stalking spotting a few sidewalk strutters whose style game is inspiringly on point. But, there is so much beyond our familiar little bubble. That's why we spread our wings and ventured a little further east to South Korea's largest style capital, Seoul. And obviously, we couldn't resist snapping a whole slew of street-style stunners while we were there.
We may not all speak the same language, but that doesn't mean we don't see eye to eye with Seoul's sweet-and-spicy style. Think pretty pleats paired with sexy spikes, and basic tees shaken up with bold statement sandals. The city was full of seriously stellar style, and we're just happy to have captured a bit of it on film.

THIS is how you add some edge to denim cut-offs and a basic white shirt. Hana's spiked handbag and super-strappy sandals FTW!
