A lot of you guys have been asking me about Korean beauty products. It’s something I haven’t really covered before but I wanted to share with you some of my top picks. Amazon actually has a lot really great authentic Korean beauty products and since you’ve asked most about skin care, makeup and hair care, we’ll cover my top picks here:
1) Skin Care
TONYMOLY I’m Real Mask Sheets: These masks are made of 100% natural pulp and each one is different. They come in a 5 pack, which I suggest so you can try different ones and see which ones you like best. The Lemon brightens, the Tea Tree is more soothing, Avocado is for moisture, and so on. It’s nice having variety to play around with.
LG Su:m 37 White Award Detox Mask: This serum mask has vitamin E, omega 6, omega 9. IT’s shipped from South Korea, so depending on where you are may take some time to get to you but it’s worth it.
I think eyes are really important so both of my picks for makeup (not surprisingly) are for eyes…
The TONYMOLY Pandas Dream So Cool Eye Stick is great for tired or puffy eyes. It’s cooling and moisturizing, helping to brighten the delicate skin around yours eyes.
VDL Expert Color Eye Book 6.4 No.1: I love the colors on this. The Marsala is amazing and the mirror is nice and big.
Atomy Herbal Hair Conditioner: If you have damaged hair from coloring then this conditioner is amazing. It’s really moisturizing and enriching so even if you don’t color your hair it will make it shinier and healthier.
Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Hair Pack: Another deep moisturizer for hair that will bring out the shine. This has enriched argan oil, which is great for getting thicker healthier hair.

I had a lot of different requests for different Kpop Fashion items. I’ve searched for and found everything from specific t-shirts and sneakers to shoulder harnesses and sailor dresses. In the process of looking for all of those Korean clothes, I’ve been able to find some of the best places to do Korean online shopping. It’s something that I love to do and have always enjoyed. And now, I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite places to buy Korean clothing online.
Korean Fashion Online
One of my favorite places to buy Korean fashion online is Yes Style. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll say it again here. By far, they have some of the best prices and are usually the first place I look for something. This is my number one pick for Korea online shopping because they have a good return policy and you get your items quickly.
Korean Online Shopping Returns
For most regular fashion products like clothes and shoes you can exchange a defective item or exchange to another size within 14 days. Also, if you just don’t like it you can return the item for within 14 days. I wanted to mention, though, that swimwear, underwear, jewelry can only be exchanged if it’s defective. They won’t let you exchange those things for another size or if you just don’t want it anymore. The only let you exchange those kinds of items if there’s something wrong with it. So, if you’re just buying clothes or shoes you’re free to return it or exchange it within 2 weeks. But, if you’re buying underwear and swimwear make sure you get your right size because they only let you exchange it if it’s defective.
Korean Fashion Deals
Another great thing about buying Korean clothes online from Yes Style is that they are always having specials and deals. Right now for example they are having a deal where if you spend $35 you get free shipping AND they have a 10% off coupon. That’s just at the time of this writing, though. They might have something different going on when you read this. They also have a lot of flash sales so I like to check there often to see what they have going on. This is what’s great about buying Korean clothing online. You can check around and see when they are having sales, all from your phone and laptop!
Korean Online Shop: Most Legit
My favorite legit Korean online shop is QNIGirls. As the name suggests, they only have women’s clothes, but don’t worry there are plenty of other places to find men’s clothing. For women’s Korean clothing online this is, in my opinion, the most authentic you can get. They are actual Korean clothes shipped from Korea. The website is in Korean, lol, but if you’re using Google Chrome it will automatically translate the page for you. So, no worries if you don’t speak Korean. Anyway, this Korean online shop is the real deal. They have tops, bottom, outerwear, and pretty much anything you would want for Korean clothing. For summer, they are also having a lot of swimwear. They a good selection of makeup, shoes and accessories and it is all real deal Korean stuff. So, if you’re looking for a real Korean shopping online experience this is the place to go.
By the way, if you’re feeling brave with your Korean language skills… check out this site: Naver Shopping. A lot of the text is images, so the browser translator won’t work, but check it out if you’re up for it.
Do you love Korean clothing? That’s probably why you are here! I love Korean clothing and fashion and that’s why I made this website. Today I wanted to talk a little bit about Korean clothing and what I like about it where you can find it online. Something that I like a lot about Korean fashion and clothing is the dresses.
There are many different styles of Korean dresses, but one of my favorites is the cute, or aegyo, kind. Aegyo is basically Korean for cute. One of the reasons that I love the cuter dresses is that they are really nice but are still modest and don’t look like you’re trying too hard. Now, a little side point I thought was interesting… what’s considered “going overboard” with your clothes really depends a lot on your culture.
For example, in South Korea, I’ve noticed that it’s a lot more common for girls to show their legs. On the other hand, it’s considered more edgy to show your back and shoulders. Here in Florida where I live, it’s actually the opposite. Girls don’t show their legs as much, but they show a lot of back, shoulders and chest. Of course different people have different styles and preferences, but it’s still considered modest to show your shoulders here whereas it isn’t in South Korea.
That’s one interesting thing that I found about the difference between Korean outfits and other types of fashion: the culture. The culture plays a really large part in what is considered cute and what is considered edgy. I suppose it’s because in Korea it’s a lot colder so it’s okay to show your legs more but if you’re showing off your shoulders I guess it looks like you’re just trying too hard. I guess it’s just too cold! But in hot, sunny Florida, it’s just too hot to cover your shoulders. But you don’t want to go overboard and show too much of your legs either. Of course different people will disagree with this, but that’s just been my observation of the difference between Korean clothing and outfits and what see you around here. Check out our list of top Korean clothing brands.
So, if you live somewhere where it’s not all that socially acceptable to show your legs a whole lot, make sure that you take a good look at the Korean dress that you buy. When you’re looking at Korean fashion style clothing, remember that will probably show a lot of leg, especially if you’re tall.

Other Korean Clothing and Outfits
One of my other favorite Korean outfits is the snuggly sweater with shorts. You can see a lot of kpop stars wearing them. It’s something you see a lot of and videos and even in some airport fashion. That’s the great thing about Seoul. You can see kpop and movie stars everywhere because a lot of them live in that one big city, so you get to see both the red carpet Korean fashion as well as the more casual outfits. One of the outfits I like the best is the cute fuzzy sweater top with shorts. I like it because it keeps you warm and toasty and but still but doesn’t look too casual because the shorts make it cute even for going out. This is a nice outfit for hanging out with friends or just being at home. But, you can even go out and look fantastic. That’s what I love about Korean style clothing. If you look at a lot of airport fashion, it’s really nice but it’s very comfortable too. Not all Korean clothing is meant to be super comfortable, but a lot of it is. So, you can look for your favorite Korean outfits on the variety of websites online.
Korean Outfits: Where to Begin
- Picking one outfit worn by your favorite Korean idol.
- Choose the most defining thing about that outfit.
- Search for their name and that item.
- If that doesn’t work, use different terms for the clothes
- Think of this as outfit hunting and don’t get distracted.
- When you find the item, save it for later.
- Go to the next most defining thing and repeat.
Most Defining Article of Clothing
This is a matter of perspective, but you’ll want to start stands out the most to you in the outfit. It might be the shoes. It might be the dress. Maybe the hat. Just pick the ONE thing that you feel is the most important part of the outfit and start there.
Hunting vs Browsing
One thing I learned to do that is very helping when finding Korean fashion online is to think of it as hunting rather than browsing. When browsing you’re looking around to see what’s there. This takes way more effort as you have to look at everything and make little decisions about whether something would work or not. This is why shopping can be so draining. You’re making these tiny decisions, but doing it over and over again really wears you out. It’s mentally intensive and just not the most fun way to shop whether online or in the store.
When hunting, on the other hand, you have something specific in mind and you ignore everything else. You only have to make one decision: is this the thing I’m looking for? That’s it. You can make that decision over and over again and it’s way less tiring than just browsing. Also, when you have something in mind, it tends to jump out at you because you’re thinking about it.
The same way if you think about everything red in the room. Go ahead and try it. Think about “red” and look around the room. See how all those things that are red just pop out at you? Now think “blue” and look again. Now, you’re seeing all these blue things you didn’t notice before. This is how our brains work and you can use it to help you find Korean fashion a lot faster and make shopping online a lot more fun.

Now it’s your turn? What’s your favorite Korean clothing or outfits?
As you can probably tell, I really love Korean fashion. This article I’m going to be talking a little bit more about what I love about Korean style and clothes. I’ll also be going into some of my favorite places to buy Korean Fashion online!
Finding Korean Style Clothes Online
No doubt, you are here because you love kpop and Korean style clothing. You have probably looked around and tried to find specific items of clothing that you’ve seen your favorite K-pop stars wear. In addition to K-pop, kdrama Stars are also famous for what they’re wearing both on-screen and off-screen. The same goes for K-pop Stars. They are just as well known for what they wear to the airport as for what they wear on stage or in their music videos.
Some of my favorite places to buy Korean style clothes is Yesstyle. They have a lot of different selection of Korean Style clothing. Another really good place to get Korean clothes is Qnigirls. They are based in South Korea so they’re about as legit as you can find when it comes to Korean clothing brands.
Cold Weather Korean Fashion
One of my favorite things about Korean fashion is that it is nice and warm while being really stylish. Korea is about the same latitude as North Carolina in the United States. Now, North Carolina is not all that cold, but South Korea is a lot colder even though it is on the same latitude. The reason for this is that South Korea gets the Siberian winds from the north. So, even though South Korea and North Carolina are all about the same latitude, South Korea is a lot colder for most of the year. Because it is a lot chillier in South Korea the style has evolved to include lots of stylish outerwear. A lot of Korean fashion includes blazers, trench coats, peacoats, boots, and other things that you generally wear in the winter.
Summer fashion can be fun, but nothing beats the stylishness of a more formal looking winter outfit. This is one of the main reasons that I love Korean fashion. They use a lot of nice clothes that keep you warm and look really stylish. Because it’s a little cooler, people focus more on dressing up nicely and taking very good care of their clothes. In warmer climates, it seems like it’s just too hot to do that and so people dress a lot more casually. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s just my personal preference to dress a little more on the nicer side and be a little less casual.
Casual Korean Clothes
Even the airport fashion that you see K-pop stars wear are really stylish and look really nice. The whole point of going to the airport is to be comfortable, but I love to see how these K-Pop Stars still manage to look amazing even though they’re in their most casual attire. Even if they’re just wearing sweat pants and a baggy shirt. You can tell that they are well-fitting and flatter their shape and are carefully selected.
Well, that’s my take on it!
Post below why you love Korean Fashion or your favorite place for Korean online shopping!

You’ve probably seen a lot of cute pics of K-pop artists and their phones. Wanting to dress your phone up with style, too? If you want to give it a new look for the new year, you might find just the thing at New Shop. They recently sent me an iPhone 5 case to review, and it was gorgeous:

On top of that, BB cream also provides SPF protection and moisturizes. Most Korean makeup artists typically use it as a light foundation for both their female and male clients.

I love this video! K.will’s emotional and soulful voice is so moving, and I can see why he might usually sing sad ballads, but it’s so nice to hear a cheerful song from him! I love this happy number: Day 1. The video is so sweet and has a rewarding story! I love Korean high school-inspired outfits, and the female lead (Soyou of Sistar) in this mv was wearing some cute red shoes that caught my eye. If you pause it at 1:31 you can see they’re red Keds with plaid laces. I did some combing through the internet, and (to my great excitement :P) found the same pair! Get them below, and then share your own cute confession stories with us!

The huge hit “NoNoNo” from my adorable bias group Apink translated nicely into a Japanese version. Many fans felt the settings and outfits in the video, while different from the Korean version, came off as fresh but familiar. Seven months after its release, I have a feeling this song will still be regularly floating through Pandas’ earbuds for awhile yet!
Here’s a requested find for one of our awesome readers!
