Welcome to this week’s Get That K-pop Look , where we showcase an original K-Pop outfit and give you tips on putting together your own similarly styled, affordable outfit.
Dara is our K-pop style muse this week, thanks to an Instagram post she shared recently of her in front of Big Bang posters.
Per usuals, she nails K-pop style in one look.
It’s a cool and confident outfit, and it takes one element we don’t see often anymore (knee high socks) and makes them the smooth center point.
This would be a perfect outfit for a sunset dinner on a Saturday night or for a stroll around the city on your next vacation.
Read on for tips on putting this killer look together.
Panel Cropped Faux-Leather Jacket, $32.90 from YesStyle The duel colors here – whether it’s the zebra stripes on Dara’s version or the black undertones on this jacket from YesStyle – keep the jacket interesting and help tie it into the black knee socks.
It’s also the perfect addition to this outfit when you’re turning a breezy daytime outfit into a slightly edgier nighttime one.
Raw Edge Cut-Out Bodycon Dress, $20 from TopShop The little white dress might not have the same popularity as the little black one, but it can still be considered a closet staple for summer.
This one hugs in all the right places, showing off curves and a little leg while still being completely appropriate for brunch with Grandma.
Basic Thigh High Socks, $8.99 from Soho Girl Take a cue from Dara and don’t be afraid to roll these socks up past your knee to your mid thigh.
It’s a good mix of funky and fifties and is sure to set you and your outfit apart from the crowd. Snakeskin Ballet Flats, $27.99 from GAP It’s always good to have a few pairs of flats in your closet, and white ones like this can be worn with anything, all year round.
The great thing about wearing them with your thigh-high socks in this outfit is that you’ll probably avoid the blisters that sometimes come with a shoe of this cut.
Say hello to a day full of pain-free flats.
