Same Style, Different Takes: 22 K-Pop Stars Interpret Fall/Winter Trends
It’s not even Christmas yet but we’re already dreaming of cozying up to today’s hottest K-pop stars! If you’re looking to spruce up your cold-weather wear, here are endless inspirations and different interpretations of this year’s Fall/Winter fashion trends!
Colorful knits: Sehun and Joshua
It’s time to bring out that cozy and comfy knitwear when you feel the cold breeze! The more colorful and unique, the better! Fashion director of Shopbop, Caroline McGuire, says, “Right now, I love how brands and designers are innovating the style through mixed media prints, uneven hems, and reimagined colorways. These updates make for layering pieces that are equal parts fashionable and functional.” SEVENTEEN’s Joshua and EXO’s Sehun were captured wearing the exact same Dior sweater styled with the same pink shirt!
We are seeing more K-pop stars that opt for knitwear that’s just a little more extra: from loud prints, de-constructed details, to eye-popping patterns: Kang Daniel, MAMAMOO’s Solar, SEVENTEEN’s DK, and f(x)’s Krystal.
Slouchy, oversized, and drop-off-the-shoulder cardigans not only keep you warm, but they also add a touch of grandma chic. They’re a stylish and practical layering piece, and it has infinite styling possibilities. Sunmi styled her cardigan with a basic white collared shirt with jeans while Lisa kept hers cool and casual with a knit cropped top. And who can forget the iconic western-inspired outerwear that BTS wore during their “Idol” stage performance? Jimin particularly stood out with his bright red number.
Jogger Set: Dara and Rosé
If you’re the type who hates layering and prefer comfort over trends, this style is for you. A matching set of sweaters and jogging pants are all you need for that sporty, street look. It’s less maintenance and you can practically live in it! Dara and Rosé rocked the trend, giving off both feminine and active vibes.
Teddy bears remind us of comfort and happy childhoods, and it looks utterly cute on garments too! Seulgi and Jennie gave a touch of hip and edginess to this style and we all know they have their own cute personalities too!
Vintage pullover and jeans combo: Hwasa and Sunmi
Sporty collared sweaters add playfulness to any look, especially when paired with jeans. Hwasa and Sunmi both rocked this style with their effortless chic vibe.
Autumn Color Tones: Dahyun
The season calls for colors that are reminiscent of falling leaves and the warm tones of fall foliage. TWICE’s Dahyun perfectly embodied the spirit of autumn with her brown, white, and neutral outfits made even more beautiful with her equally warm smile.
Trench coats are always a classic style staple because they can be worn with any style. They’re both timeless and on-trend. Tiffany paired her trench coat with a slit sleeve detail with leather pants and without innerwear, while Dara styled hers with a layering of a plaid dress and white long sleeves, both stylish with different charms!
Seen wearing the same Burberry coat are HyunA and Hyeri, but who can blame them? The oversized coat is a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe! HyunA paired hers with a pale tulle skirt and embellished Crocs, while Hyeri seemed to have worn Burberry from head-to-toe!
Cozy Couple Fashion: HyunA and DAWN
Nobody can beat HyunA and DAWN when it comes to couple dressing, not even themselves! Here they show us different ways to wear plaid and patterned outfits. Looks like they already have their holiday outfits all planned!
A padded jacket is one of the best pieces to have during winter because it’s a sure-fire way to keep you warm and toasty. Jessica cinched her waist with a black belt, while GFRIEND’s Yerin kept her look comfy and easy.
Furry Sliders: SinB and Rosé
We don’t exactly know if SinB and Rosé mistakenly stepped out wearing their house slippers, but it looks like a cool trend waiting to happen! These furry loafers look beyond comfy, and both of them carried the same style with sophisticated and feminine takes!
