5 K-Pop Idols Who Prove That Legwarmers Are Back In A Big Way This Winter

Trend cycles are always changing, and that often means bringing the looks of yesteryear into the modern day. Legwarmers might be most commonly associated with the ’80s, but these K-pop idols are proving that they’re back and better than ever! They’re the perfect way to layer up and stay warm this winter without resorting to looking like a penguin. Take inspo from these stars this season!

Red Velvet’s Joy

Red Velvet’s Joy looks and sounds fantastic in this special performance of “Love Song,” a collab with singer Wonstein. Her simplistic style of dress fits the vibe perfectly, and her accessories add a touch of whimsy. Legwarmers with a pair of pointy-toed flats might seem unconventional, but it looks super stylish!

LE SSERAFIM’s Huh Yunjin

LE SSERAFIM’s recent comeback with “ANTIFRAGILE” has given the members the chance to show off some seriously amazing style – including this look from Huh Yunjin! The transitional period can be hard to dress for, but Huh Yunjin proves that you aren’t just limited to pants. A miniskirt and legwarmers are the perfect layering strategy.

IVE’s Jang Won Young

This is technically an outfit from last year, but it’s so timeless that it could be worn any time! Jang Won Young’s look screams cozy winter vibes, and the legwarmers with thigh-high socks are the perfect way to bring skirts into the colder season. A double-layered knit keeps the legs surprisingly warm, and it looks ultra-chic with the turtleneck sweater.

TWICE’s Momo

Thigh-high socks are a style staple, but thigh-high legwarmers are a new one! While most legwarmers are more fitted, this bootcut style adds a bit of a twist. By using a flared-out fit on her lower half, Momo’s gorgeous shoulder line is perfectly highlighted. Plus, it makes her legs look extra long!

For those who live in hotter climates but still want cozy fall/winter vibes, Jennie proves that legwarmers can be worn with even the most minimal outfits. A halter top and super tiny shorts might not seem conducive to this style, but the legwarmers bring the focus right to her glittery statement shoes.
