South Korea is a beautiful country known for its rich culture, delicious food, and breathtaking tourist destinations. However, it is also widely known for its Korean dramas and K-pop or Korean pop. For those who do not know, K-pop is a musical genre characterized by a wide variety of audiovisual elements. It is also used to describe modern South Korean pop music like pop ballad, dance pop, rock, hip hop, R&B, electronic and many more. Nowadays, we often see countless K-pop boy and girl bands singing both Korean and English songs. Although most of us might not understand what they are saying, this does not stop us from listening to their songs, buying their albums and going to their concerts.
K-pop is also known for setting fashion trends and new styles. Some of these looks may be deemed worthy in the fashion world, but there are looks that are bordering on the extreme side, looks that ordinaly individuals might find a bit hard to wear. Since I consider myself a fashion forward person, I sometimes try to emulate the K-pop fashion trends that can be worn everyday. I do not want to overdo things lest I look like I am trying too hard. I only incorporate some of the trends into my wardrobe like for instance, wearing K-pop inspired accessories. Of course it is up to you if you want to copy the whole look. I often visit online stores such as zalora.com.ph, romwe.com and coco-fashion.com to look for K-pop inspired items.
The School Girl Look is one popular fashion trend. We often see K-pop female artists wearing preppy school uniforms that make them look innocent yet flirty. This is suitable for teenagers but for more matured women, this look will definitely not work. Wearing neon colors is another stylish trend that you can incorporate into your wardrobe. Your ensemble does not necessarily have to be neon, you can probably wear just a neon top or vice versa.
Another staple of K-pop fashion is military accents. This is a stylish look that works for both men and women. The secret to this trend is to mix the pieces into your outfit so it does not look as if you are wearing a costume. Wearing colored pants is also cool. Girl bands are seen wearing bold colors while boy bands are seen wearing pastel colors.
If you love bold animal prints, then you are just like your favorite K-pop idol. Leopard print in various shades and sizes especially. Last but not the least is clashing 80’s patterns that is suitable for people who have a bold and funky personality. You can wear any 80’s inspired print and mix it with another bold print. Accessories should be simple when you are wearing this trend.
