Shopping for Korea Clothes and Kpop Costumes

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 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 clothes onlineKorean Online Shopping Returns

Korea online shoppingFor 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!

Korea’s Online Shop: Most Legit

My favorite legit Korean online kpop 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.

Kpop Costumes

Kpop costumes are another story, though. If you are looking for a costume that you have seen on stage then they might not have what you’re looking for. For something more traditional (or should I say a LOT more traditional) we have a new post on where to find a korean hanbok for sale online. Be on the lookout in the future though as I’ll likely be posting on that soon.online shop

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.

We have new posts on Kpop Lightsticks! Check them out here:

EXO Version 2 Lightstick

BTS Army Bomb Lightstick

Our Kpop fashion site would not be complete without some kpop band merch. What better way to show your fandom and support of your favorite groups than to get some real-deal, authentic fan merchandise. My favorite is the kind you can wear: t shirts, hats, etc. But, things for your room like posters and figurines are great too for decorating. Our new post is just for the most supportive kpop fans.

Korean Clothing | Dresses, Outfits, and Korean Style Brands

Korean Clothes

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 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.

Korean Dresses

One of my favorite places to get dresses is from Yesstyle. 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.

green korean dresskorean dresseskorean fashion
korean dressFor 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 below (click to drop down to the list)

Of course, you can’t leave out the classic flowy blouse with a skirt look.

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

korean fashion clothingMy other favorite Korean outfit 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. You can also check out our new article on where you can buy hanbok.

BONUS Making Your Own Kpop Outfits: Where to Begin

Ok, so you want to replicate the looks of your favorite kpop star? This checklist is the fastest way to do it.

  1. Picking one outfit worn by your favorite Korean idol.
  2. Choose the most defining thing about that outfit.
  3. Search for their name and that item.
  4. If that doesn’t work, use different terms for the clothes
  5. Think of this as outfit hunting and don’t get distracted.
  6. When you find the item, save it for later.
  7. Go to the next most defining thing and repeat.

What I Mean By 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 at a kpop shop 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.

I hope you enjoyed this post on Red Flavor by Red Velvet. This is one of my favorite songs right now. They have a wonderful sense of style that is youthful and pretty.

When the Kpop Clothing You Wanted Is Sold Out :(

In this post, I tried a bit of a different format where I put the sold out stuff on the bottom and make the picture black and white.

I want to make it clear that these clothing items aren’t available anymore, at least not from the site I found. Usually if they are not available anymore on that site, it’s because the manufacturer discontinued it and have moved on to making other things.

So, even after these are sold out, I usually can’t seem to find it in ANY store because they just don’t make it anymore. Now, I’m talking about the exact same kpop clothing items you see them wearing in the video. You can always find look-a-likes and similar items anytime.
