K-Pop Summer Fashion Trends
Summer is here! Now is the time to take out all of your summer clothes and put away those thick winter clothes. K-Pop idols start the newest trends in Korea, so we turn to K-Pop idols for new summer fashion ideas. Here is a list of popular fashion items amongst K-Pop idols over the past summers and this summer as well.
White t-shirts are one of the most popular clothing items every year because they are so multi-functional. You can wear them casually with a comfortable pair of jeans, joggers, or shorts or dress them down for a lazy day by adding a beanie. You can also make it look fancier by tucking it into a pair of shorts or a long circle skirt and adding some accentuated jewelry. I like to wear white shirts under a blue jean jacket with a long gold necklace and a pair of black shorts or black jeans.
In the photos above, there are K-Pop idols styling their white t-shirts in different ways, but they all still look amazing. Apink’s Naeun is wearing a plain white v-neck t-shirt with a blue jean jacket and a pair of blue skinny jeans. Naeun also makes it look more feminine by adding a pair of black heels and a small chain purse. TWICE’s Momo is wearing a plain white cropped camisole with a black jacket and a pair of blue jean shorts. She makes it look so effortless while going to her music shows. Red Velvet’s Seulgi is wearing a white t-shirt with a pocket on the top side paired with black skinny jeans. Her outfit is perfect for the airport because it gives off a comfortable style. In the last outfit, BLACKPINK’s Jennie is wearing an oversized t-shirt which she decided to tie up into a tight crop top paired with olive trousers and black heels. Her outfit is comfortable because of the loose trousers, but still has a chic style due to the black heels and side chain on the trousers.
Oversized shirts are the most comfortable way to wear dresses! I constantly wear oversized shirts on lazy days because they are the easiest outfits to put together and still add some style to my outfits without trying too hard. Usually, oversized shirts give off a sporty look, but if you add heels or some jewelry, it could look more feminine.
K-Pop idols tend to wear them to music shows or for airport fashion because they are so easy to put together. HyunA is wearing a black oversized shirt with knee-high socks added with a chain purse and a pair of loafers to give off a feminine style. Red Velvet’s Seulgi is wearing an oversized dress shirt with a cute printed phrase which makes it more casual. She pairs it with sneakers and a shoulder bag for her airport fashion. Hyolyn is giving off a sporty look with her white oversized shirt with a pair of sneakers and her gold chain necklace.
Long jackets are perfect for those cold, summer nights when you want to go out for a drink or karaoke with friends. Long jackets or sweaters look perfect with a pair of shorts or a skirt which is my go-to outfit for those cool summer days.
Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon is seen wearing a long trench coat paired with a t-shirt and shorts. A trench coat is usually for business fashion, but Taeyeon makes the outfit look so comfortable and casual through adding her combat boots to the look. Red Velvet’s Wendy is wearing a long sweater for her airport fashion with a t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers. She makes this outfit look effortless, but it is put together perfectly for that comfortable, lazy day look for a long airplane ride. We can not forget about Jessica Jung when it comes to fashion. Jessica is rocking a long blazer paired with a white blouse, a navy skirt, and a unique handbag. She shows off her business casual style for her airport fashion.
Fanny packs are back in style! Most people wear them like a crossbody instead of around their waists which is trending now. When you wear a fanny pack, it makes it easier to move around compared to a shoulder bag or handbag. They are smaller than bags or backpacks but they are perfect for people who have minimal accessories. Fanny packs can have a more feminine style as well as a street wear style depending on the type of fanny pack.
My favourite YouTuber, Joan Kim, is wearing her A Cold Wall fanny pack along with Ladies Code’s Ashley wearing her Supreme fanny pack. Their fanny packs have a more street wear style which they are rocking with their outfits. GOT7’s Yugyeom is wearing his fanny pack paired with a blazer and black jeans. His style is like business casual, but the fanny pack completes the look. BLACKPINK’s Rose is wearing her fanny pack with a more street wear style. She has paired her fanny pack with a cropped knit sweater and a pair of black jeans.
These trends have been popular both last year and this year and are my go-to fashion items during every summer. Comment down below your summer fashion trends for this summer!
