We’ll admit it—we need more K Pop in our lives. It’s kind of impossible not to fall in love with 2NE1. Like, the moment we realized they also share a serious obsession with Jeremy Scott and decked-out winged sneakers, we were ALL aboard this K-Pop train.
Shades are one of the most common and stereotypical fashion pieces that remind one of a K-Pop idol. Specifically, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer has been a particular prominent style of shades that is commonly spotted on the celebrities, although it had probably gotten less popular than it used to be.
Yet another popular item among K-Idols is wearing a hat, more specifically snapback caps, baseball caps, beanies and other kinds.
Alike to the sunglasses, hats are worn not only for their style value but also to mask certain bad hair days , which is especially apt for K-Idols when they are off duty. It is also interesting to note how the wearing of a cap/beanie is normally paired up with a pair of sunglasses to achieve the whole “K-Idol off duty look”.
There is no question that South Koreans have revolutionized the way sport shoes are worn. No longer simply worn for exercise, sport shoes are now deemed a fashion statement.
Quite noticeably, the reigning sports shoes brand in Korea seems to be New Balance. K-Idols are constantly spotted in their shoes. They are also huge fan of the brand, donning a colourful pair with any kind of outfits, even formal-looking getups.
