Whether cute, cool, or classy, K-pop stars are undeniably well-dressed. Even you don’t have the dance moves, you can still imitate the style!

This topic was a special request from one of our readers, so who am I to disappoint? I’m also taking a K-pop dance class right now, so I thought now would be as good a time as any to take up this article (coincidence, or fate of the universe?).

While K-pop stars often wear brands and labels that are on the high end (AKA $$$), the good news is that because korean style is so popular, it’s easy to find pieces that fit into your budget!

After following these steps, you’ll be able to step into the streets like a K-pop star.

Step 1: Get Inspired

Take a look at your favourite K-pop idols and get inspired. Notice which styles you gravitate towards: Cutesy like YuQi from (G)I-dle, edgy like Heize, elegant like Im Yoona from Girls Generation, etc.

-Girly Skirts

-Baseball Caps

-Face Masks

If you’re not a fan of online shopping, I’ve also found that Zara carries some of the pieces as seen on our K-pop queens.

Step 3: Put It Together

Part of the fun of the K-pop style is the excess! Go wild with your combos.

In general, K-pop idols like to mismatch patterns to create an effortless look. Create contrast to put together a unique outfit.

And of course – make sure you accessorize for maximum impact.
