K-World Style

Korean & Seoul Street Fashion dedicated to finding the style of K-pop, K-drama, and k-world.

An example of this is oxford-style bowling shoes with three inch platforms, with cropped jacquard flares and a navy cashmere sweatshirt, or denim culottes and a baseball tee. Floral brocade blazers to paisley hair wraps are equally enticing. Men and women dress androgynously. K-pop stars are G-Dragon and Taeyan, which have a huge influence on the Korean fashion industry. We all heard of the pop tune “Gangnam Style”. Korean men are into blurring the typical gender lines spending $900 million on beauty products since 2012 with their love for fashion. Seoul's fashion industry is reveling in androgyny where women are modeling menswear. Beyond Closet, one of the nation's hottest menswear labels, model-actress Lee Sung Kyung, strutted an oversize sports jersey, that also appeared on a male model. This has been trickling down to the masses. You'll see hordes of men and savvy women reinterpreting K-pop's over-the-top trends. is a site where fashion bloggers specialize in finding specific clothing worn by k-pop artists. Their blogs “Get The Looks” which recommend cheaper clothing that can emulate the much pricier style of a k-pop artist.
