To say that Mine, the new Netflix Korean drama involving high society, feels like a fashion show inside a series is not an exaggeration.

It revolves around the family that owns Hyowon group, a powerful real estate development firm by Chairman Han (Jung Dong-hwan). The story zeroes in on two of Han’s daughters-in-law, their involvement in the family business, and the women who want to take the extravagant lives they lead from them.

Seo Hee Soo (Lee Bo Young) was a rising actress who gave up her career to marry the second son of the Han family, while Jung Seo Hyun (Kim Seo Hyung), who also comes from generational wealth, married the eldest son of the same clan.

Reflective of their roles in the family as wives and as protectors of the household’s peace against threatening newcomers, the two turn to a wardrobe that’s both feminine and commanding.

Here’s a look at some of those looks—spoilers, included—from the series.

Seo is first introduced in the series saving a teacher from being reprimanded by a group of men for debt. The power move fits her equally powerful outfit: a double breasted blazer ($717) from South Korean designer brand Eenk, a Salvatore Ferragamo Trifolio handbag ($2,200), and a Fendi Fendimania watch ($1,175).

While screening who would be a new addition to the household staff and eventually catching on to some suspicious information about an applicant, Jung wears an elegant yet business-ready attire: A MaxMara top ($1,235) and pants ($1,235), as well as a Gianvito Rossi Alise shoes ($722).

Seo Hee Soo is unbothered

In episode two, Seo clearly shows that she’s unbothered catching her nanny playing dress up the previous night by wearing a classy Dior Long Dress ($4,300), a matching Large Dior Caro bag ($5,300), and a Salvatore Ferragamo F-Heel sandals ($722) the next morning.

Handling an in-law whose power-tripping goes viral is no easy task. Jung takes care of it like a pro, however, in a Ports 1961 Geometric Print top ($601) and A-Line skirt ($685).

Seo Hee Soo confronting a bully’s parent

When Seo learns that her child is being teased in episode three, she faces the parent of the bully and demands an apology on behalf of her son. While doing so, she wears Chloe from head-to-toe: a Ruffle Lace-Trimmed Embroidered Silk blouse ($1,200), a Fitted Tuxedo jacket ($2,695), and a matching Mini Tess Day bag ($1,690). Her choice of sunglasses is Rick 01 from a South Korean designer brand, Gentle Monster.

Seo Hee Soo finds out the truth

Upon finding out that the newly-hired tutor is the birth mother of her son, Seo rushes to confront her in Devil Wears Prada-like fashion: a Shetland Wool Turtleneck sweater ($908), a Re-Nylon Gabardine full skirt ($1,696), and a Brushed Leather handbag ($4,081).

In episode five, Jung tries to bribe a new housemaid for her relations with her stepson, only for it to be returned to her. In this encounter, Jung maintains her nerves of steel wearing a gray Notched Collar A-Line Maxi Dress by a South Korean brand Bride and You ($798) paired with a Lady Dior My ABCDior Bag in Gray Ultramatte Cannage Calfskin ($4,950).

Seo Hee Soo’s show of strength

After a miscarriage, Seo seems to have recovered in episode eight and returns home for his son in a Loewe Pleated Sleeve Mini Dress ($4,990), with a Bottega Veneta Beak bag ($2,100) and a Honghol M In Love sunglasses ($291).

Jung Seo Hyun becomes an heir

When she finds out that her father has entrusted her all of his shares in the company in episode nine, Jung realizes her true position in the family. Lucky for her, she’s wearing just the perfect outfit for an heir: an Alaia Sleeveless Metallic Jacquard Midi Flare dress ($1,552).

Seo Hee Soo’s fully recovery

Attending the first family dinner since her miscarriage and her battle for child custody, Seo decides to show up in a vibrant Gucci ensemble: a Puff-Sleeve shirt ($1,300) layered under a Horsebit Detail jacket ($2,400) and a Floral Cotton-Blend Midi skirt ($1,187). Her choice of accessory is a Bulgari Serpenti Seduttori watch ($29,812).

Seo Hee Soo as a mom

Despite not being the birth mother, Seo is seen taking care of her son like her own in episode 10—with style, of course, wearing a matching red Hermes button down and red Carrot pants ($2,266), as well as an Herbag Sac A Dos ($9,768).

Seo Hee Soo confronts her husband

Seo may be wearing a sparkly Soonil Holiday Bell Sleeves Dress ($2,650), but her mood is far from celebratory in episode 11 as she is finally filing for a divorce to leave her husband for good.

Jung Seo Hyun stands up for her stepson

After being confronted for not firing the housemaid her stepson fell in love with, Jung confronts her husband for his lack of sincerity in being a father. In such a dramatic encounter, only an equally dramatic look is appropriate. In this case, it’s a matching white silk jacket and skirt from South Korean designer Kelly Shin ($692).

Mine is currently airing on Netflix.
