The bold style is worn by idols of all genders, proving that over-the-top beauty looks are perhaps, meant for everyone.

K-Pop idols no longer stick to subtle pink and orange tones. Besides bolder eye makeup, lip color also witnessed many changes in the aesthetic taste of Korean women. Recently, a lot of K-Pop idols have sported lips in powerful shades of deep mauve, earthy reds, and chestnut brown, both as diffused all-over colors or sharp rock-chic shapes. Lips in dark matte tones, especially those in red and maroon are head turners for sure!

The simple black color makes leather so versatile, but still spices up any outfit because of its unique texture. ITZY and TXT both took the classic leather look to the next level, wearing top to bottom outfits with this unique fabric. Instead of sticking to the classic leather pants/jacket look, ITZY's Lia wore a leather ruffled dress, which definitely added a unique aspect to this concept. In the same way the American teens are currently on their corset craze. BLACKPINK's JiSoo wore a simple but edgy outfit during her ‘Lovesick Girls' era.
