A week ago, Block B's sub-unit group BASTARZ released their MV for "Conduct Zero" (품행제로). I managed to make a K-pop fashion find for each member. All of them are wearing pieces from the FREIKNOCK S/S 2015 collection.


B-Bomb is wearing the Mechanic sweatshirt and Banded short pants. Buy the sweatshirt here and shorts here.
 

New girl group CLC from Cube Entertainment recently debuted with a song called "Pepe". In the MV, I made one K-pop fashion find in two different colors. 
 
Rapper and maknae YeEun is wearing the Cross Print crop top from Stylenanda. In the part where the group wears the pink letterman jackets she is wearing it in white.
 
Disclaimer: Note to all that I am in no ways bashing/hating/dissing any of the idols that are to be mentioned. I am only keeping up with the professionalism as a fashion critique and I do not blame the fashion choices entirely on the idols themselves, nor on the fashion stylists. This will be based on my opinion, and if you disagree do feel free to express your views :) This is, after all, a 'Hot or Not' segment so it's all personal preference. :>

K-POP stars are known for their funky styles, addicting music and crazy fashion. This edition of Hot or Not I will be exploring the unforgivable, eccentric, and 'wtf' depths of cray cray hairdos. (because really, have you seen some of them hairstyles??)

I love all the idols and I respect their respective styles, albeit sometimes you just can't help but shake your head at some of their choices...*shakes head*

Now the term 'crazy', is really wide, ambiguous and debatable. There is good crazy (not really that crazy though)idols usually sport flashy hair colours or a myriad of different ones, almost like a rainbow. (I'm looking at ya Sehun) Their hairstyles are pretty tamed and even some of them are a definite HOT.


Wait a minute I see a trend in this. Seriously SM.
Wahh I made this find when JJCC's "Fire" (질러) MV came out but forgot all about it until JJCC recently came back with their "On the Flower Bed". Well... better late than never right?

Eddy is wearing a camouflage print jacket from Virgil Abloh's OFF-WHITE S/S 2014 collection.

It's nice to see how versatile this group is. With this post, I have posted on every member of JJCC woohoo~

JJCC released a beautiful feel-good song called "On the Flower Bed" (꽃밭에서) with a scenic, bright MV to accompany it. It reminded me of B.A.P's "Where Are You?" (어디니? 뭐하니?). I made a couple of K-pop fashion finds in their MV. 
 
 
E.co is wearing the Contrasting Panel Sweatshirt from Nº21. Buy here.
 
Hi everyone!

GG is finally back with 'Catch Me If You Can' and boy am I impressed by their dance moves! Very different to their previous songs such as Mr. Mr. where they showcased classy and sophisticated sexy, this song blows your mind with their slightly rough, slightly grimy (in a very, very good way), tough but still sexy aura and overall topping it off with grunge-ish outfits.

Digressing a bit, before I became a KWS writer I often peruse the articles of fashion finds and realised most of the finds are really expensive (think designer brands), and as a reader and avid K-fashion person I find myself wanting to imitate or get inspirations from my favourite K-pop idol (who doesn't want to look like GD, really)

But of course me and expensive don't necessarily go together, and I doubt it will for many out there. So that's when 'Get the Look' comes into play! And who doesn't love cheap but great quality clothing?

Pic Cr: modernseoul.org

This simple outfit consists of: 
Black bandeau/black cropped tank 
White cropped top - cut off at certain parts, smeared with a bit of grime and dirt and looking thoroughly distressed(?)
Obnoxiously neon lime green fingerless gloves
Dog tag
Hoop Earrings
Silver Buckle Belt
Dark camo trousers with chains dangling at their hips 
Boots

For their 'dupes'/'lookalikes' I managed to find these:
 
 
1. Cotton Crop Tank Top in Black - American Apparel - $19.50 (you can buy it on lovemelrose.com) you can buy it here.
2. Cropped Crew Neck Tee in White - Forever 21 - $7.90 you can buy it here
3. Hank's Black and Silver Tone Dog Tag Necklace - Emitations - $16 you can buy it here
4. Oversized Hoop Earrings in Silver - Forever 21 - $3.90 you can buy it here
5. Faux Leather Square-Buckle Belt - Forever 21 - $5.90 you can buy it here
6. Columbia Silver Ridge Printed Pant - Zappos - $65 you can buy it here (This is pretty pricey but I chose this one because this is the most similar in pattern and colour to the one SNSD wears) or alternatively you can search for other cheaper ones here.
7. Textured Faux Leather Hiking Boots - Forever 21 - $27.80 you can buy it here

Phew that's a lot!
Note: if you are thinking of putting up an outfit similar to this, you can always find alternative and cheaper clothing to the ones I mentioned above, especially for both the tops and accessories. Experiment and be creative, sister! :)

I realise most of the items are from Forever 21...Welp I'm not biased nor am I affliated towards F21 -  I've never really shopped there before (there aren't many F21 stores in Australia and especially where I live) - but I guess this just makes it easier for you to browse through majority of the above items if you're interested in purchasing any of them.
 
 
Hope you enjoy this post!
Cheers!

EXO went to Hanoi, Vietnam to hold a special performance for KBS Music Bank on 150408.
 
 

This performance included Xiumin, who was wearing a shirt from LEIGH's Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
 

Sorry that I haven't been posting lately. I have finals this month and after that I should be back in full swing!

We received an adorable message from reader C C tipping us on what two female idols wore. Who do you think wore it better? Comment below!
 

Hi all~ My first post heehee! 
Wow, I never thought there would be a day when I became a writer on K-World Style. I come to this blog a lot and comment...a lot hehe, and I had no idea I would even have a find so quick since I'm not good with recognising much fashion brands and I joined the team only the other day after being asked by Shelley- who is an awesome friend I was able to make thanks to this site~ >_< *gives Shelley a massive hug*

Anywho, on to the find! Just now I was watching SHINee's Taemin in a preview for the latest show he's cast on called Off To School, where idols go back to school and experience teenage school life once more. I couldn't help but find the style of text on his sweatshirt very familiar as it made me instantly think of an awesome paper cutting artist named Rob Ryan. I thought I'd search 'Rob Ryan sweater' and voila! I was right! 
(I love paper cutting myself which is why I was able to recognise it ^^)


Taemin is wearing a Juun.J x Rob Ryan collaboration sweatshirt in black. However I couldn't find this particular black sweatshirt design, only the t-shirt version- which you are able to purchase here.

Sorry if I rambled too much...^^;;
I'll keep it much shorter next time.

More EXO finds~!
First up Chen surprised us with his 'magical wardrobe change'  from his 'Call Me Baby' shirt to a red Supreme Logo Rib L/S Tee from the 2014 Fall/Winter Collection, lounging and dancing with enough swagger to rival Lil' Wayne. His ramen-styled hair is another story though. (Really hair-stylist coordinator, really?!)
 

Unfortunately there's no buylink in their official online store, but you can still check out here for the price of this item, and here for the picture of the top (in navy) on their official website. You can always search on Ebay if you want to purchase it (and they have a range of other colours too such as white, teal and black)
