This year’s Korean preppy style blazers are either long blazers or cropped blazers. The conventional, tailored blazer is still quite timeless, of course. However, both long and cropped blazers suit the modern, street style more.

Meanwhile, Sooyoung paired her cropped blazer paired with high waist pants.
