Korean Fashion Finds: The Fashion Behind SunMi’s “Gashina”

While the disbandment of Wonder Girls definitely let us down, we’ll admit that we’re totally in love with SunMi‘s solo work – especially her new song, “Gashina”!

One of the ultimate babes of K-Pop, you can always rely on SunMi to give us some serious fashion and beauty inspo with every new music video she comes out with, and the ultra-vibrant, feminine-with-an-attitude concept of her latest comeback is no different. She’s the queen of looks!

For this week’s Korean Fashion Finds, we’re going behind some of our favorite designer items from “Gashina.” Be warned – it’s going to be a droolfest!

First up, we’re going to check out items SunMi wore from US streetwear brand UNIF‘s collaboration with Japanese supermodel Kiko Mizuhara.

In a promotional still from the music video, you can get a closer look at the shirt, which is made from a ribbed, sweater material. The pastel stripe pattern and the embroidered butterfly design give a nod to the babydoll style of the mid-to-late 90s, and we love the way her bright pink blush and sky blue shadow add even more playfulness to the full look.

The t-shirt is actually a part of Japanese supermodel Kiko Mizuhara’s collaboration collection with streetwear brand UNIF. The Kiko X UNIF Frost Top might be currently sold out through the brand, but internet savvy fashionistas can easily find the top through various third party online stores.

However, one item that’s still available through the line is the ultra-slinky Kiko x UNIF Butterfly Mini Dress, which SunMi literally rolls around in during another scene of the music video.

The style gives the LBD a very retro upgrade with adorable butterfly detail on the straps. Get it while it’s haute!

Next up, we have SunMi’s all-red look centered around a beautiful sailor-inspired dress, designed by Korean fashion label The Centaur.

Similar to SunMi’s “Full Moon” music video, the outfit is very romantic, lacy, and full of monochromatic drama. It’s a little bit flamenco, a little bit storybook, and a whole lot of glamour, making it one of our favorite looks from the video.

The dress is called The Quite Lady Dress and is one of the highlight items of their S/S 2017 collection. Double-breasted and embroidered with ranchero-style roses, it was one of Seoul Fashion Week’s most coveted items, seen on many Korean celebrities, include the equally fashionable Krystal of f(x).

For our last look, we’re going to look at SunMi’s simple yet unconventional skirt look, finished off with a Swarovski crystal necklace and a pleated skirt from Jeremy Scott.

In a still from the music video, we get a closer look at the entire outfit. To balance out the loud design of the skirt, SunMi wears a simple black tank and silver jewelry. To emphasize the block color look (and to add an element of fun), she wears deep red lipstick in a similar shade to what the face on her skirt is wearing.

To those of you familiar with American designer Jeremy Scott, it should be no surprise that the skirt was one of his designs. The Jeremy Scott Face Print Pleated Skirt reminds us very much of the loud styles he put 2NE1 in for their “New Evolution World Tour,” where he served as the girls’ costume designer.

We are also huge fans of SunMi’s ultra-glam statement necklace, Swarovski’s Fit Crystal Choker, which was paired with a few other silver chokers of similar designs to create a mixed media texture to the look.

Korean Fashion Finds: Big Earring Looks From Pristin’s “We Like” MV

Pristin, the rookie girl group of our hearts, is finally back – and giving us a whole lot of fashion inspiration! We always love the new, surprising trends that come out of K-Pop music videos, especially girl groups, so it should be no surprise that we’re dedicating this week’s Korean Fashion Finds to Pristin’s new music video “We Like.”

Want to know what we like? Those earrings, for starters. The girls are rocking some serious statement accessories this time around, and we’ve picked our three favorite earring looks to highlight for this week’s feature – YeHana’s mirrored frame earrings, YuHa’s hot pink tassels, and KyulKyung’s oversized hearts. Let’s check them out!

First up, we have YeHana‘s mirrored fram earrings. YeHana doesn’t really have a lot of solo camera time this music video around, but you can check out her rocking the earrings during her first verse solo in the gif below.

With their strong structure and girly shape, the earrings evoke the pop art trend we’ve covered in previous earring looks – ie: earrings worn by ChaeYoung in TWICE’s “Signal” and earrings worn by Solar is MAMAMOO’s “Yes I Am.” We found the same exact style offered for only $13 USD on StyleNanda’s official website. Get ’em while they’re hot!

Next up, we have YuHa‘s long tassel earrings. We love these because the hot pink color keeps it very fun and vibrant while the length of the earring draws some sexy attention to the jawline, neck, and shoulder. Her long bob hairstyle also seems to help exaggerate just how long the earrings are.

GIF

As you can see, YuHa matches the earrings with a whole lot of hot pink in the music video. However, we think these earrings would also pop when paired with a more evening or date night style look. How cute would these be as the statement jewelry for your favorite LBD? We couldn’t find the exact earrings, but we’re loving these three very similar styles.

Last up, we have the ever-so-gorgeous KyulKyung’s oversized heart earrings. With large cubic zirconia detail and a white fabric bow, the look evokes the playfulness of princess dress-up. We’re not the only ones getting Barbie vibes, are we?

GIF kyulkyung, pristin, we like

In the video, she pairs the earrings with quite a number of different looks, but our favorite is probably the baby blue and pale pink plaid look picture above. The entire outfit is a very modern uptake on some of our favorite ’90s fashion looks, making KyulKyung look like she’s channeling famous fashionista Cher Horowitz from the movie “Clueless.” We were fortunate enough to find her exact earrings on Chuu’s official online store – where they come in multiple colors!

Korean Fashion Finds: How To Get MAMAMOO Solar’s Retro-Chic Style

If you’re like us and in love with vintage-meets-modern music video looks, this is definitely the article for you. This time around, we’ve decided to dedicate an entire fashion feature to the leader of girl group MAMAMOO – the diva darling Solar!

Like Us on Facebook

With a killer voice and plenty of sass to match, Solar is not only the ultimate K-Pop girl crush, but the face of a girl group that consistently goes against the grain when it comes to their sound and style. For Korean Fashion Finds, we’ve picked out three of our favorite Solar looks that are easy enough to throw together and wear out on the town. Let’s take a closer look!

First up, we’ve got Solar’s all-denim look from “Honey Bee,” her collaboration single with EXID’s HaNi and f(x)’s Luna.

While the ‘Canadian tuxedo’ look has been a fashion don’t in the past, when paired smartly, you can still definitely hit it out of the park!

Mystic Entertainment

In this still from the music video, you can see the full outfit, which she accented with simple gold jewelry and a chunky white heel. The curve-hugging jeans matched with the tucked-in, blousy denim top creates a comfortable yet chic silhouette that keeps the all-denim style from appearing tacky. Her loosely tousled locks and hoop earrings also add a level of ‘cool girl’ to the outfit – showing just how well smart accenting can pull a look together.

To master this look, we suggest Imvely’s Whiskered Raw Hem Straight-Cut Jeans and Loose Denim Boyfriend Shirt. However, our favorite item from the outfit we’ve put together is StyleNanda’s Chunky Heel Square Toe Pumps, which give the outfit a very vintage-inspired twist.

Next up, we’ve got Solar’s kitchen scene look from MAMAMOO’s recent “Yes I Am” music video.

GIF

This music video is literally jam-packed with some pretty enviable looks, but perhaps the most wearable outfit from the video is Solar’s kitchen look, which elevates an otherwise ordinary skirt and t-shirt combination with a pair of fashion-forward wrap sandals.

This time around, Solar’s seeing a whole lot of red – from the sandals and mini skirt, all the way up to her pinkish hair and makeup. The blocks of primary colors are very reminiscent of 1960s-1970s pop art aesthetic. (Are we the only ones who think Solar kind of looks like she stepped out of one of those comic book-esque Roy Lichtenstein paintings?)

For this look, we had a hard time finding a perfect bell-sleeved t-shirt like Solar’s, but we are quite content with this Warning Print T-Shirt from StyleNanda. With button detail and square panel pockets channeling the mod era, ASOS’ red skirt also ups the retro vibes of the outfit.

For our last look, we’re featuring the black-and-white shift dress look Solar wore in the “Taller Than You” music video. 

GIF solar, mamamoo, taller than you

Whether they were donning #allblackeverything or styled up prison jumpsuits, the girls of MAMAMOO were sporting all sorts of looks in this video. But our favorite look was Solar’s black and white collared dress.

CJ E&M

As you can tell by the music video, the outfit itself is pretty simple. However, the look is extremely high-contrast, and when presented with the other girls’ varied but similar dresses, evokes a very fashion-forward 1960s girl group vibe.

Anyone can wear a black dress, but it’s what you pair with it that really keeps a look from getting dull. In our suggested “Taller Than You”-inspired look, we are definitely digging those Chuu Just Like That Day Heels, which are oh-so-Shangri Las. We also won’t tell a soul if you decide to incorporate that volume hair pad into your look. What’s more retro-chic than a perfect little hair lift?
