K-pop is known for setting fashion trends and new styles. While some of the looks are truly noteworthy in the fashion world, some of the more extreme styles only belong in the edgier world of music videos!
We’ve gathered one dozen K-pop fashion trends that can be worn everyday. Whether you’d like to imitate the whole look or incorporate the trends into your wardrobe with K-pop inspired accessories, you’re sure to find something that will make you feel like your favorite K-pop artist.
So without further delay, here are 12 K-pop fashion trends that you will love!
#1 Crazy Colored Hair: If you’re feeling bold, you can go for the more shocking tones we see sported in K-pop. If you are more conservative, try colored tips or highlites. If you’re still not convinced that these bold colors are for you, then try a temporary hair spray color like pink or blue. The colors are bright and vivid, but they completely wash out after 1-2 showers.
#2 School Girl Look: K-pop has definitely been inspired by the popularity of dramas like “Playful Kiss”, where we see the cast members in adorable, preppy school uniforms. Female K-pop artists especially are embracing this look which manages to be both flirty and innocent at the same time.
#3 Outrageous Makeup: K-pop artists have always been fans of bold, black eyeliner and heavily accentuated eyes. Lately however, we’re seeing even bolder eyeshadows and huge, false eyelashes. Also seen recently are bright lip colors or wacky patterns as seen on 2ne1 and G-Dragon. The key to this trend is choosing just one feature to accentuate. Stick to lips or eyes only… if you try to do both, you’ll just end up looking like a clown!
#4 Feminine Hair Accesories: Stars like Lee Hi embrace their feminine side with soft, sweet colors like different shades of pink. One of the most popular trends among these ladies? Feminine hair accessories! Whether it’s a cute bow, a quirky flower or a sweet headband, these girls look adorable!
#5 Nerdy Glasses: Practically everyone has a pair of these glasses! We’ve seen them in a variety of colors (from red to clear) but the most common example among the stars is black. From fashion icons like T.O.P. to Kim Hyun Joong, everyone is getting their geek on with these thick frames.
#7 Animal Prints: Bold animal prints are especially popular right now among K-pop artists. Their particular favorite seems to be this leopard print in various shades and sizes. Whether it’s on a jacket or a simple headband, both guys and girls in the K-pop industry are embracing this trend.
#11 Girly Mini-Dresses: When you’re feeling flirty and feminine, go all out with a short, sweet mini-dress. The skirt should be full and floaty. Shorter lengths keep it youthful and modern. This look works best in softer tones like pastel pink and purple. Keep to the trend and wear feminine accessories and sweet makeup.
#12 Colored Pants: While SHINee has been wearing pastel pants for a while now, the trend is catching on with other bands and artists as well. Boy bands are still seen wearing pastel colors and girl bands are sticking to slightly bolder colors. Whether you prefer soft pink or bright red, this look offers a way to express your individuality while staying comfortable. Try these colored pants in denim or in a chino version.
