Just like the Sari in South Asia or the Ao dai from Vietnam, it’s refreshing to see traditional dresses that represent centuries of culture worn amidst modern fashion trends.

We’ve put together an infographic containing the most appropriate settings and occasions in which you can dress up in Korean traditional style.

However, with a growing modern selection, the occasions are certain to expand from purely traditional events to everyday wear.
