In kyeopta clothes and ulzzang fashion, do as the K-idols do. Here’s the lowdown on all the trends and key pieces they’ve been wearing:
CHECKED COAT AS DRESS
Sandara Park and Go Back Couple’s Han Bo-Reum reinvents the old-fashioned business jacket by pairing it with micro minis we can hardly see.
K-style tip: Pair key trendy pieces with basics; if you’re baring your legs, cover up on top.
Cases in point: actress Lee Joo-Yeon’s her lime green mini worn with a plain white shirt and a jacket, and Jessica Jung’s tiny leather skirt and cozy knit combo.
EASY, BREEZY WHITE SUMMER DRESS
The ever-playful Lee Sung-Kyung and A-Pink’s Naeun are living proof that investing in a fun, frilly, white summer dress will all be worth the joy-per-wear.
Feminine elements (ruffles, bows, et cetera) and figure-flattering mini dresses (usually cinched at the waist) are staples in every Korean girl’s closet. Irene Kim and Min Hyo-rin show us how to wear them confidently.
~BASIC~ JEANS AND TEE
For Koreans, simplicity is key when wearing jeans and a tee. Accessorize yours with a statement boot like Naeun or a belt like Lee Sung-Kyung.
CLASSIC K-STYLE LAYERING
It’s impossible to miss this dress-over-shirt trend! The style works best with statement tees or textured tops, and dresses that would actually reveal too much (like lingerie) if worn without anything underneath.
DRESSED UP DENIMS
Koreans looove their denim. You can dress up your jeans with a fancy tube top for the evening, a la model Soo Joo, or with a pussy-bow blouse for the day.
Practically every Korean style icon owns an all-white suit to embody that ~*young and fresh*~ look. Have one that’s tailored to match your style personality!
OFF-DUTY ATHLETIC WEAR
No matter how high profile they are, Korean style stars do dress down too, making a case for low-key fashion. They usually prefer athletic wear for a comfy but edgy look.
