1. Baddie Outfit

Baddie Outfit

It's fascinating to see the creative layering ideas that K-pop idol stylists come up with. We recently stumbled upon Jang Won Yeong's stage outfit for IVE's performance of "Baddie," and it instantly inspired us. While she wore a cargo dress, we thought about reimagining the look using a bolero and mini skirt in black tones, while incorporating strong pink tones for outerwear and accessories. The turtle neck bolero features a cozy napped fabric lining, and the slit mini skirt is lined with fleece, making both pieces suitable for winter wear.

To add extra warmth to this cute outfit, there are two options. You can swap the cropped bra top with a warmer sleeveless top or any slim-fit top to wear underneath the bolero. Alternatively, you can wear tights underneath the mini skirt. Feel free to recreate this outfit according to your own unique style!

2. The Kuromi-Inspired Look

Kuromi-inspired Outfit

This winter outfit was inspired by the Rom&nd and Sanrio collaboration featuring Kuromi's Better Than Palette. The outfit captures Kuromi's cheeky, rebellious, and mischievous personality. To begin with, we included a cheeky cat beanie that adds a touch of whimsy to your winter look. Paired with this, we have selected a pair of stylish purple denim to exude an air of confidence and individuality. And let’s not forget the fingerless gloves and stud belt to give an edgy appeal. The pièce de résistance is a vibrant Powerpuff Girls scarf, which perfectly ties everything together, despite not being Kuromi-specific. This adorable winter style captures the essence of Kuromi while keeping you warm and fashionable.

3. Sky Blue Outfit

Sky Blue Outfit

One of the most sought-after colors in Korean fashion is sky blue and light blue. These color tones are particularly popular, as seen in IU’s stage in 2018. Her light blue outfit and sky blue background received much attention and were deemed to be on point. These vibrant colors not only create a lovely appearance but also allow for different styling options to achieve either an elegant or a cute and bubbly look.

For this look, the primary textures we aimed for were fluffy materials such as knits and corduroy. The quilted skirt adds a contrasting texture to complete the outfit. If you prefer, you can switch out the waist-length coat with a longer length, like this blue shearling coat.

4. All Black Streetwear

All Black Streetwear Outfit

A renowned Korean designer once commented that if you find yourself at a crosswalk in South Korea, you'll notice a sea of black ensembles. The allure of this love affair with black attire remains somewhat elusive. Undoubtedly, two fashion trends that stand the test of time in Korean fashion are oversized fits and the ubiquitous presence of black garments. Embracing this concept, we have curated a streetwear outfit that deviates from the conventional cuteness, opting for an edgy all-black ensemble. Although this style is frequently seen on the streets of Korea, it certainly doesn't lack fashionability. To ensure the outfit doesn't appear overly somber, we've artfully incorporated touches of white to provide a striking contrast and elevate its overall appeal.

5. Casual Chill Look

This Korean winter outfit idea is a recreation of Red Velvet Seulgi’s winter fashion worn in her Instagram photo. To capture Seulgi's trendy vibe, we've replaced the crochet hat with a trendy fur hat, adding a touch of glamor and warmth. Additionally, instead of a regular pullover shirt, we suggest opting for a snug shearling pullover jacket. Wear this outfit with a warm shirt of your choice to create layers and maximize insulation. For the bottom half, we suggest swapping for wide jeans with fleece linings if you are sensitive to cold temperatures. To elevate the charm of this adorable Korean winter outfit, we have curated it with a delightful corduroy bag, complemented by an adorable bunny keyring.
