Whether you are part of this craze or not, you just can’t ignore the fact that k pop fashion is taking the world by storm.
Featuring catchy beats, impeccable dance moves, and high-quality performance, k pop stars are just irresistibly ravishing in their own way.
From girls generation to 2ne1 to Blackpink, these stars just never fail to WOW the world.
And to make k-pop even more exciting, these idols are as stylish as they are great musicians.
Regardless of the on-stage or off-duty ensemble, all looks just scream “I’ve got a style and I own it”.
So ladies, if you are ready to upgrade of wardrobe with a dash of aesthetics, ahead are the 8 kpop outfit and idol-inspired ideas. Enjoy!
1. TEAM CROPPED CARDIGAN AND JEANS
Well, we all know kpop stars are unreasonably skinny. (21-inch waist, I mean…really?)
To showcase their waist, these girls love pairing the cropped cardigan and jeans together.
Instead of choosing the dark hue, opt for springy pastel colors like milt green and pastel pink for a dash of darling.
Want to look hot and spicy? What about pairing the lace-up cropped cardigan with skinny jeans and nude heels?
Or else, dress it down in straight-leg pants and chunky sneakers are equally stylish.
2. GO FOR SCHOOL GIRL FASHION
Styles come and go but school girl look is here to stay. Despite the youthful vibes, can we talk about how body-flattering the look is?
By teaming a white shirt and high waist A-line pleated skirt, that just contour the long torso perfectly and make your legs appear to be slimmer and longer.
As a pear-shaped girl, this look is my ultimate mood booster.
Needless to say, a uniform look is always sexy. (let’s “blame” Britney Spear).
To take this look to another level, I’ll urge you to loosen the tie with an oversized school uniform.
This naughty seductive look is simply … IRRESISTIBLE.
3. WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR A PLEATED SKIRT
If you think a pleated skirt can only create the school girl look, well, think again.
As a versatile piece, kpop idols love to team it with everything. Co-ord set, tube top, dress shirt, the list just goes on.
When it comes to the pleated skirt in Korean style, they go really short. (I will suggest you wear slip shorts just in case).
Another key takeaway is instead of wearing stripe heels, always team it with ankle white ankle socks or boots.
You know, kpop look is all about incorporating both coolness and sweetness in one outfit.
4. STAY CASUAL WITH WIDE LEG PANTS
The charm about the kpop star is they can turn the simplest outfit into an ultra-chic look like a BAM. Looking like a girl boss in jogger pants? I mean, seriously Jennie?
That said, pairing a tight or cropped top with high waist slouchy pants is always the golden rule.
That way, you just freshen up the ordinary look by putting your curves in the spotlight.
To turn it into a high street ensemble, a front knot tee with pastel yellow pants, baguette bag, and platform sneakers just work wonders together.
You know, the definition of stylish sometimes is all about not trying things too hard. (At least don’t let people know!)
5. PULL ON A BOSS LADY LOOK WITH A BLAZER
If you’ve been to Korea, you will know the oversized blazers obsession is real. Korean girls prefer wearing them as a fashion piece more than formal work attire.
As for K-pop idols, they just take this blazer game to another level by mix and match all kinds of patterns.
If you want to dress down your all-over leopard print shirt, throw yourself a black blazer just instantly tone down the look.
Vice versa, to spice up a plain tube top, get bold with a delightful dusty pink plaid blazer that just boosts the aesthetic tenfolds.
As for the girls who want to unlock a new styling combo, try layer chambray shirt and blazer together for an unexpected blend!
6. EMBRACE ATHLEISURE IN A SWEET WAY
Who said basketball caps and windbreaker pants are only for cool and laid-back looks?
When it comes to kpop fashion, the stars embrace athleisure in a sweet and energetic way.
Again, trying out new combos is the key. If you haven’t thought of a baseball cap and white eyelet smock dress that can work together, well, now you know!
And let’s not forget Korean idols love to express their youthfulness through all kinds of hairstyles.
While pigtail braids can look juvenile with a doll-like dress, when you match them with chic sportswear, they just turn out great with the perfect balance.
7. GIVE A DASH OF BADASS TO THE GIRL CRUSH LOOK
K-pop fashion has changed over the years and “Girl crush look” is undoubtedly the hottest trend. To reflect the confidence and fierceness of a lady, Korean idols’ on-stage looks are just full of attitude.
While we can’t copy every outfit, the equation of the girl crush ensemble is basically “Dark romance + empowering vibes + a dash of badass + latest fashion trend”.
Some of the iconic elements include a faux leather biker jacket, choker, black elbow gloves, and an on-trend bolero hoodie.
Together with an on-point “I don’t give a damn” facial expression, this is how these girls win our hearts.
8. WEAR STATEMENT ACCESSORIES FOR STAGE OUTFIT
I hate heavy words but k-pop fashion is pure visual enjoyment. The make-up, the clothes, the hairstyles … everything is just impeccably polished.
That said, you can’t finish off an on-stage look without statement accessories.
To echos the vibrant and extravagant look, chunky accessories just come in handy to bring people’s attention.
Instead of a dainty long necklace, get bold with a pearl choker, oversized hair clips, belly chain, and body harness are the popular choices to add a distinctive vibe for style elevation.
I know that can be quite overwhelming but let’s start with a lace choker!
