The concept of always looking smashing is also taken literally in Korea. Bare legged even though it's minus degrees? Of course!
Yesterday I saw a Chinese girl wearing the coolest jumpsuit ever. It was ebony white (brave colour indeed, I’m not big on white but on this girl it really worked) and tight at the right places. She matched it with a pair of funky looking, flat black loafers. Might not sound so good, but man, she looked rocking.
That was, until she climbed up on the exercise bike at the gym and started working out.
(and made me, in my baggy gym pants and not-so-skin-tight adidas singlet, look out of place)
All I could think about is what a waste to work out in such a cool outfit. Then again, the concept of “always looking top notch” sure is taken literally over here in China.
