how to dress like a korean boy band member

Have you ever looked at the latest K-pop phenomenons and thought, "Wow, I'd love to look like that?" Yeah, me neither. But I thought that there would be a few people who have considered it or at the very least would be amused by my list. (I have an obsession with making lists. Apparently, David Sedaris does, too.)


How To Dress Like A Korean Boy Band Member
  1. Everything is unisex. Gender roles? What's that? In K-pop World, everything is a go. You want to wear Alexander Wang's mesh embossed dress, why not? See: G-dragon and his latest skirt obsession.
  2. Put studs and spikes on everything. And I mean, EVERYTHING. Jackets (of course), shoes, arm bands, your face. It declares to the world, "I am a badass. Or at least my stylist wants me to be."
  3. Neon colors! Electro blue, hot pink, flourescent green - the more of an '80s throwback it seems to be, the better. 
  4. Dressing in all silver or gold is also acceptable. 
  5. Clothing that lights up are always a plus. Feel free to decorate yourself like a Christmas tree. You'll get those teenage groupies screaming, "OPPA!" faster than Rain (λΉ„) can rip his shirt off.
  6. Group coordination is one of the key elements to making this look work. The deeper you roll, the cooler you are - see: Super Junior, boasting 13 members.
