Korean Fashion | What I Love About Korean Style and Clothes

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 close 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.korean clothes brands

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!

Korean BB Cream

sulli-shinee-etude-korean-b



BB Cream is a must for Kpop stars. As I’m sure you’ve seen, everyone from musicians to the hottest Korean actors use it to give them a natural look that blends in with their skin.

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. There are some BB creams available in the US, by why not get the real deal? Below, you can buy real Korean BB Cream on Amazon for only $17!

Buy Sulli’s Etude House BB Cream!

Just for fun, here’s the commercial with Shinee fawning over Sulli and her baking skills!

Watch below, as Sulli shows you how to apply this BB cream! (in Korean)

 

K.will Keds

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!

NoNoNo Japanese Version

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!

Again, thank you, everyone, for all of the requests! I’m sorry I don’t get to all of them, but your support is really appreciated! :) <3 Keep them coming in!

See the Vixx Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook for Staff here!

Sadly, Staff only has locations in South Korea, so I found some similar options to the trendy jacket Leo is wearing above for our non-Korea-dwelling readers. ^^ Most of them have longer sleeves, but roll ’em up, and they definitely give off that Vixx vibe! Check them out!

Bomi in Mr. Chu

Apink Mr. Chu mv

I received a request on the Kpop Fashion Facebook page for Bomi’s outfits in Mr. Chu. Their looks are all so lovable! I decided to focus on the outfit with the pink dress that Bomi wore in the shot above. Boy was it hard to find something similar! >_< ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I love how each of the girl’s outfit are a little different in these part of the video. Bomi’s stylist did a very nice job with her dress, I love the detailed lace collar and scarf attachment, as well as the almost body-con style accents on the sides of the dress. Here is what I found to help you get a Bomi Mr. Chu look:

The next one is simple, but it would be easy to dress up. You could apply some yellow, pink, and white floral fabric detail and it’d look close!

Here’s a scarf to go with it!

Don’t forget the feet! ~^^

My New High Tops!

I got my first pair of high tops!!!!! I love them! They’re comfy, and while not super-girly, they’re feminine enough to not get mistaken as boy’s shoes. I got them on sale from Payless for $16 – what a deal! (Update: Since I wrote this post back in May, they’ve gone down to just $12!) Oppa’s been wanting to get me a pair for awhile now; it’s one of his favorite looks from the K-pop fashion world. When we saw these, he said to himself ‘now those are K-pop’. As you can see from the above images, their definitely a common part of the scene. You can have the same ones I got here:

What: Black and Pink High Tops
