Stuck In A Summer Style Rut? Let K-Pop Idols inspire You


The sweltering heat can mean that fashion takes a serious hit. Most of us want to abandon clothes altogether, or at least to the point that it is socially acceptable. It’s the time to welcome breathable silhouettes and flaunt some skin-showing fits. A cursory glance at the runways will tell you it’s all about experimenting with proportion and putting an emphasis on striking elements that will make your pairings stand out. We get it, scouring for ideas might get a little exhausting. But cast all your sartorial worries aside, your K-pop idols are here to help you step up this year’s style game. From J-Hope to Lisa and Jimin, you’ll find plenty of inspiration here.

1. Momo: Crop Tops

There is nothing more comfy and stylish than a cute crop-top and denim look for a summer outing, but this season you can amp it up with some hand warmers and extra cuts like Twice member Momo.

2. Jimin: Crocheted Tanks

We all have a soft spot for a crocheted cardigan but the best way to pull it off in this heat is in a tank top. Pick a peppy coloured top or go for neutrals like Jimin.

3. Lisa: Cottegecore Dresses

Summer is the best time to debut your cottege-core era. With light colours, floral motifs, and flowy silhouettes, this whimsical aesthetic isn’t going anywhere. K-pop ‘It’ girl Lisa’s Instagram feed is filled with this trend.

4. J-Hope: Oversized Shirts

Since they are loose and frequently lightweight, oversized shirts are one of the most breathable items of clothing to wear in warmer seasons. And nobody styles oversize fits better than BTS member J-hope.

5. Namjoon: Denim On Denim

A street style staple, denim on denim is BTS leader Namjoon’s signature look. The denim on denim outfit combinations are endless and can be styled in multiple ways. Wear it along with some Converse sneakers or some chunky boots.

6. Jennie: Corsets

The purpose of a corset is to make you feel stylish and confident and to have a lot of fun. Not check how long you can hold your breath before passing out. This trend is the epitome of sexiness, and if you are looking for styling inspiration, BLACKPINK rapper Jennie’s Instagram is the best place to look.

7. Jisoo: Sheer Dresses

This summer, sheer clothing is coming in hot and heavy on fashion’s everlasting infatuation with peek-a-boo styles. Choose a lacy dress like Jisoo if your objective is to wear as little as possible while the heat is on.

8. Naeyon: Crop Shirts

If you don’t want to cover yourself with an oversized or casual shirt but still want the collar structure, shirts have a new twist as a cropped version. This Y2K trend, as worn by Naeyon, is making its way into everyone’s wardrobe.

9. Kai: Oversize Culottes
