Today I am here to show you a guide to K-POP fashion trends!
This post will focus on K-Pop stars fashion seen in Promotion Photos, Music Videos, & Live Stages.
Trend #1 : Fishnets
Fishnets are immensely popular in the K-POP girlgroup fashion scene as it gives off edgy, sexy and fashionista vibes. This is a must go -to item for girl groups with charismatic and sexy concepts.
Girl Groups commonly wear fishnet stockings underneath shorts,ripped jeans, and skirts; and fishnet mesh tops above cropped tops. However, wearing fishnet stockings and mesh top at the same time is a bit overwhelming.

Trend #2 : Ripped Jeans
Along with the fishnets trend, ripped jeans are also an important staple item for charismatic girl groups.

Trend #3 : Cropped Tops
Cropped Tops are a favourite for girl groups regardless of concept! In every live girl group stage, there is at least 1 or 2 members sporting a cropped top. Girl groups on the more innocent side tend to wear cropped tops along with tennis skirts and not reveal a big amount of skin; Meanwhile, girl groups on the more sexy and charismatic side wear shorter cropped tops and commonly pair them with shorts.

Trend #5 : Oversized Sports Jacket/Sporty Clothing

Trend #6 : School Uniform Concept
Lastly, but definitely not least is the School girl outfit trend! The school girl outfit trend is one of K-Pop’s representative looks that represents youthfulness. This look has been used since the first generation groups like S.E.S. The school girl look usually contains of a plaid skirt, white button-up top, neck bow/tie. Girl groups tend to wear this look with white socks and black shoes (like LOVELYZ in the above picture) or with thigh-high socks along with boots/shoes. Wearing high heels with this look is very contradicting with the aura the look is supposed to emit.
