Styling Tips for Women
With the popularity of K-Pop groups such as Girls’ Generation, Red Velvet, and BlackPink around the world, it is not surprising that everyone wants to look like Tae Yeon or Jennie. Fun, playful, and stylish… these are the characteristics to define women’s fashion in Korea. Here are some tips to make you look like your favourite Korean celebrity:
Layers are an In-Thing
Koreans love layers in their overall look. Layers add volume to your outfit, especially when you mix and match different textures and patterns to create a look. Layers also enable you to experiment with different garments without achieving the same look over and over again. So, don’t afraid to be creative and add layers to your style!
Dare to Wear Oversized Outerwear
Although most female idols and celebrities are known for their perfect figure, oversized outerwear such as sweaters and cardigans are immensely popular. Oversized outerwear is usually worn as a complement to skinny jeans and tights. Not only can they keep you warm during chilly weather, they also add balance to your outfit. Moreover, they can be worn comfortably especially while travelling, which is why they are usually seen on airport fashion trends.
Accessories are a staple in Korean fashion, so you should never leave them out if you want to achieve a K-Pop look. K-Pop idols tend to keep the accessories minimalistic yet able to complement their outfits well. Accessories such as headbands, sunglasses, and scarfs are common accessories that can be seen donned by these trendsetters. Although accessories are essential, you should always know the limits. Too much bling-bling will make you look like a Christmas tree; if none at all, you can look too basic.
