Jersey Girl

Calling all the quarterbacks and fashionistas—sports jerseys are all the rage as seen on NewJeans' Hanni. Show off your sporty side in bold shades and giant numerals. Wear it loose with baggy jeans, or tuck it into a denim skirt and add a pair of fresh sneakers.

Baggy Jeans

Gone are the days of slim-fit or candy-coloured bottoms. This season embraces high-waisted baggy jeans. As seen on NewJeans, these oversized trousers exude a laidback, effortlessly-chic aesthetic. Team them with a crop-top, graphic tee, or sports jersey for that quintessential street-style look.

Sheer Seduction

Translucent tops take the spotlight this summer, as shown by BTS' Jungkook. Whether donned solo, layered with a tank, or beneath a blazer, this sheer garment exudes subtle seduction, offering versatility to elevate or tone down your look, according to the occasion.

Pop of Metallic

This season, metallic accents steal the spotlight. TWICE's Mina demonstrates how a hint of shimmer can elevate any look. Follow her lead by pairing understated, neutral tones with dazzling gold, silver, or bronze accessories for a chic and sophisticated look.

Shades of White

Ditch the all-black ensemble and go light this summer. Leading man Cha Eun Woo shows the art of layering various shades of white with a sharp buttoned-up shirt and cream suit. Just remember to have a stain remover pen handy for any unexpected spills!

Textured Trims

Stars like LE SSERAFIM's Yunjin are infusing extra dynamic flair into their looks. These textured trims inject a touch of excitement into an already stylish look. Keep the rest of your outfit understated to let your embellishments steal the spotlight.

Combat Boots

When it comes to Korean fashion trends, a sturdy pair of combat boots is always a fan favourite. Idols such as StrayKids' Felix are rocking these military-inspired kicks at award ceremonies and fashion gatherings. Follow Felix's lead by pairing them with an all-leather ensemble, or juxtapose it against something more feminine like a slip dress.

Denim on Denim

Once considered a fashion faux pas, this season welcomes denim on denim with TWICE's Momo sporting the trend for summer. The secret to mastering this style is all about mixing and matching: Experiment with various washes and cuts to achieve maximum versatility.

Clashing Combo

NCT's Jaehyun shows us that it's all about breaking free from the confines of traditional fashion rules this summer. No longer confined to choosing between florals or bold hues, pair the two without reservation. The brighter, the better!
