K-dramas aren't only hyped because of their kilig-filled storylines. They're also often used as style pegs by their fashion-forward viewers. Throughout the years, some trends have changed in K-drama fashion, and some things remained the same. From typical students to crazy rich heiresses, we take a look at the different ways female characters in popular K-dramas dress up throughout the years.
In Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, lead star Lee Sung Kyung would often dress like your typical college student—clad in comfy a hoodie and baseball cap!
While they're almost always in school uniforms, the students in Love Alarm find themselves wearing something a little bit on the preppy side whenever they get to wear casual clothes.
Lead character Kim Hye Jin, played by Hwang Jung Eum, works as a magazine editor, which is why her corporate getup is a bit more relaxed. You'll often find her in cozy sweaters, dainty tops, and denim jeans.
On the other hand, Her Private Life's Sung Deok Mi, played by Park Min Young, is a museum curator and will often be seen wearing more structured pieces like pantsuits.
Back then, fancy headbands, ruffles, and platform heels were all the rage for chaebol heiresses, as seen on Kim Ji Won's character, Rachel Yoo, in The Heirs.
A modern-day heiress would still wear something like what Rachel Yoo has worn, with a contemporary twist, of course! Nowadays, ruffles and other dainty details like it can still be pulled off, especially by someone like Yoon Se Ri from Crash Landing On You, famously portrayed by Son Ye Jin.
