If you have spent countless sleepless nights binge-watching K-Dramas or listening to K-Pop songs, you would know one thing for sure – the Hallyu wave has the world in its grip, and the craze is going nowhere anytime soon. People’s interest in South Korean dramas and the music industry got piqued a few years ago and kicked off their curiosity in South Korean skincare, snacks, dishes, and fashion. Now, fashion in itself is a big part of the K-Dramas and K-Pop songs. But today, we will focus on Korean winter fashion trends that are all about comfy and oversized clothing. With the winter season upon us, we decided to take inspiration from your favourite K-Pop and K-Drama stars, including Park Min-young, Lee Min-ho, Seo Yea-ji, BTS’ V aka Kim Taehyung, BTS’ Park Jimin, BTS’ Jeon Jungkook, TXT’s Yeonjun and more. Check out a few fashion trends you can adopt to create a chic wardrobe. (Also Read | BTS’ V meets Hedi Slimane after Celine Men’s fashion show in Paris, posts new dreamy pics of his stylish look)
Winter fashion trends inspired by K-Pop and K-Drama stars
Your winter wardrobe is incomplete without a long coat. In the above image, you can see Kim Go-eun, BTS’ Park Jimin, Park Min-young, and Lee Min-ho rocking this style trend with panache. You can wear this clothing item over your dresses, tracksuits, baggy pants and knit sweaters, or even formal suits, and each time you will be able to turn heads. If you are just starting out or building a capsule wardrobe, go for neutral shades like beige, taupe, grey, cream, brown, black, and white.
Fleece coats or sweaters (often called teddy/fuzzy coats) are the perfect solutions to chilly winter mornings. They have been a part of the style trends for many years. However, this warm and comfortable clothing became popular after many K-Pop and K-Drama stars started wearing them. Here you can see TXT’s Beomgyu, Red Velvet’s Kang Seul-gi, and BTS’ RM aka Kim Namjoon wearing this fashion trend.
Chunky Chelsea Boots
You can easily elevate any outfit from your winter wardrobe by donning Chelsea boots. This versatile footwear can be worn with any ensemble from your everyday, formal or party wear collection. Here you can see BTS’ Jungkook and Jimin and TXT’s Yeonjun and Soobin rocking Chelsea boots with their casual outfits.
Printed Colourful Jackets and Cardigans
Another comfy item that Korean celebs love! Winter fashion doesn’t have to be gloomy or all about neutral-coloured clothing. We often stick to beige, tan and white shades while buying clothes for the colder weather. But, you can also try including colourful jackets and cardigans with printed or embroidered designs in your wardrobe, like BTS’ V, J-Hope and Blackpink’s Lisa.
Oversized sweatshirts are perfect for running errands, going on casual outings or your airport wardrobe. Nothing is more comfortable than wearing an oversized hoodie or sweatshirt on cold days. You can find almost everyone in Korea wearing it casually, even your favourite stars like Kim Seokjin aka Jin, Jungkook and Lee Min-ho as shown in the above image.
Korean fashion is all about oversized clothing. Celebrities often wear puffer jackets, on outings or during shoots, like Park Seo-joon and HoYeon Jung. And what’s there not to love in these pieces? They’re equally comfortable and practical.
Knee-high boots are easily one of the classy additions to your winter wardrobe. One can see this style appear in countless dramas and K-Pop videos. They are a comfy and stylish pick for winter, as they will keep you warm and can also be teamed with formal and casual wear.
Knit vests have been embraced by many Korean celebrities, including Park Min-young, WEi’s Yohan, and Blackpink’s Jisoo. So, it’s safe to say that you won’t be dismissed as a nerd for wearing one. You can wear the vests over button-down shirts and denim jeans and layer up with your favourite coats. Don’t forget to experiment with colours while investing in this piece.
