Feature/Photos: A Guide to the Style Stars of K-Pop

Taeyang, G-Dragon, 2NE1 and More: A Guide to the Style Stars of K-Pop

nymag cut

Of all the street-style stars to descend on Paris in the past few weeks, some of the flossiest — and most original — have been rapper G-Dragon and singer Taeyang, of South Korea’s beloved boy band Big Bang. Spotted in the front row at most of the bigger couture shows and fall menswear shows, they caused a general spectacle with their penchant for bejeweled boleros and multi-colored hair.

This is the first time G-Dragon has appeared at Fashion Week since a brief, pink-haired appearance in 2012, but Taeyang has been on a roll. He caused a frenzy with street-style photographers last summer in Paris, attending the men’s shows with a foot-high faux-hawk and kilts of tartan-plaid and bandana-print (with matching bank-robber face-gear). G and Tae have a mutual distaste for rules regarding color, fit, or gender. To that end, during the shows in Paris, the boys greeted many admirers, including Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, Alber Elbaz at Lanvin, and Carine Roitfeld at Saint Laurent. 

But the Bangers aren’t the only K-Pop stars making the street-style rounds. Blogs like K World StyleKpopstarz, andK-Fashionista breathlessly chronicle the looks of the genre’s best-dressed, including an ever-popular “Airport Style” feature — because unlike a good third of all U.S. celebs, you’ll never see a member of 2NE1 slogging through LAX in ratty flip-flops and Christian Audigier leggings. Click through our slideshow for a primer on the K-Pop street-style clan’s best and brightest.

Starcast/Feature: How To Wear Skinny Jeans – Learn it from the Girl Groups

[STARCAST-How to] “Skinny jean, we learned it from girl groups”

154012796_1

Girl group the principle of fashion, has to must show off slim body figures no matter what kind of clothes they wear. They have to react fast to what is popular and have to lead the trend. Skinny jean is an It item in that aspect. Just wearing it highlights the beautiful body figure and it matches well with everything.

We learn from girl groups!!

The first is a way to wear the skinny jean. The styling of girl groups’ skinny jean is divided into 4 parts. ▶Being chic with a leather skinny jean, ▶ showing off charisma with a ripped skinny jean. ▶Look fantastically cool with a printed skinny jean, ▶also emphasize the natural charm with a basic skinny jean.

We took a close look into girl groups’ skinny jean styling and ways to apply.

154012997_2

◆ Leather skinny jean = The experts of skinny jean wears this often. The style varies depending on whether it is glossy or not. Being glossy can emphasize sexiness and having no gloss can emphasize chicness.

Best girl = When it comes to a leather skinny jean, it is of course Hyun-a. She loves wearing the leather skinny jean regardless of whether it is on the stage, the photo wall or the real way. It is an item that is hard to be pulled off but there is no such thing as embarrassment. She shows a perfect beauty of the body figure by making the leather skinny jean stick tight to her slim body. Because of that, the sexy charm is upgraded.

How to = It is not Hyun-a if it looks normal. She matches the leopard fur to a leather skinny jean for the most of the time. But, to avoid ‘Too much’ styling, she unifies the top and bottom entirely with black. She makes her legs look long~er by wearing kill hills that is made up of similar material as the leather skinny jean.

The point = It is a leopard fur jacket that covers the waist slightly. Because of the short length, it is really showing the slim waist. A brown fur and the leather skinny jean are matching well in a fancy way. She heightened the sexy atmosphere with gold short hair and thick smoky make-ups.

Ways to apply ① Add leather to the leather!

If fur is too burdensome, then leather + leather style also looks good. It can give off a chic vibe while reducing the burden. Victoria matched a leather skinny jean to a leather rider jacket at the airport. She made it look less boring by adding in white details to the jacket and shoes.

154013267_4

Ways to apply ② Use a long outer jacket!

If the waist and hip line that is revealed in between the leather skinny jean, try matching the long outer clothes. It is the method of styling that CL uses often. To a khaki long military jacket that is trimmed with fur, she wore a black skinny jean. To this, she added charisma with thick chain necklace and walker shoes.

154013383_5

Ways to apply ③ With basic coat, the burden ↓

It is a way to coordinate the leather skinny jean that everyone can pull off easily. In the case of Yuri, she wore a light khaki coat with a leather skinny jean. She chose a tight coat, hid her legs and emphasized the beauty of body figure. To this, she wore black shoes that have noticeable kill hills and aimed for a rock chic charm.

154013482_6

◆ Ripped skinny jean = A ripped skinny jean is still highly popular even in the cold winter season. The ripped skinny jean has 2 styles. It is either to rip it in a really bold way until the knees are revealed or just slightly rip it. Let’s try the punk look with the ripped jean alone.

The best = The one who lead the ripped skinny jean style is Dara. She loves it so much that she has ripped skinny jean for every color. She shows a twist in her image with wild ripped skinny jean as it contrasts with her pretty looks.

How to = She style it in a manly way with a ripped skinny jean such as wearing a white t-shirt with a skinny jean that only ripped slightly the knee part. To this, layer the blue plaid shirt with black cardigan. She added charisma with black buckle boots.

The point = The point was the detail in the skinny jean. Dara’s skinny jean is connected in a row with silver chains from thigh to knee. Just like someone who prefers styles that are full of individuality, even her ripped skinny jean was different.

Fur has been a most famous winter wear for female celebrities who are sensitive to new fashion trends. 4minute’s Hyun Ah, 2NE1’s Sandara Park, Girls Generation’s Sunny, and other actresses often coordinates their real way look with fur items.

bysfrnmgieh6kr6bextpf8e7lg0dn9zo

If you feel burdensome wearing a fur coat, then try wearing a fur vest. Fur vest creates casual and refined feelings.

Often, wearing a fur vest over different items creates different images of style. For example, Actress Yoon So Yi gave a point to all-black look by wearing a royal blue colored fur jacket over it. With short and tight fur vest with black skinny jeans, Yoon So Yi succeeded on emphasizing her chic feeling.

2NE1’s Sandara Park used her colorful fur vest as an item to show her unique characteristic. She arose the funky feeling by wearing black and yellow fur jacket with leather pants.
