Korean fashion is a hodgepodge of prints, patterns, and colors from influences all over the world as celebrities become more in tune with their inner fashionista. Despite this, the traditional Korean clothing has not lose its flavor, especially in special occasions like the New Year.

Hanbok is the traditional Korean dress worn on holidays such as Chuseok and most recently, the New Year’s celebrations. Even the younger Kpop idols took to wearing the hanbok, and they know how to work at it too.

Members of Kpop idol group Girl’s Day wore the hanbok to wish their fans a Happy New Year! The girls lined up and smiled for a good luck picture. The cheerful colors of the hanbok matched the girls’ youthful vibes—the apple green and fuchsia combination, golden yellow and royal blue printed hanbok, bright red and jade green hanbok and more feminine crisp white and cobalt blue hanbok.

Girl’s Day’s Mina, SNSD’s Sooyoung and Other Kpop Stars Wear Hot Summer Pants in Fall

In Korea, the sultry summer is passing quickly and the winds of fall are taking over. Usually, this is the time for people on the street to be sporting their cardigans, snug pants, and boots. Celebrities however, are reversing the trend by exposing their smooth and shapely legs with sexy hot pants. How to pull the look off?

The 2012 summer season saw the popularity of the white hot pants paired with brightly colored shirts, and now the look is crossing over to liven the fall scene. Put on crisp white hot pants with a bright jacket like Girl’s Day’s Mina (above left) and pair with funky silver sneakers for a youthful look. Another take is to coordinate the color of your shirt with your sneakers, such as a red-and-white striped shirt with red Chuck Taylors to play off the white hot pants. Short leather boots can alternate with sneakers.

A distinctly vintage feel is the blue denim hot pants paired with the classic white shirt. Play around with the wash of the denim and the cut of the shirt to get the desired look. The key to this style is minimalism—don’t overdo it with the accessories and the loud makeup. SNSD’s Sooyoung (far left) shows off her endless legs with a basic white tee tied at the waist, high waist dark blue denim hot pants and platform heeled white sneakers. Secret’s Jieun (second from the right) adds to the look by putting a dark green plaid shirt over the white tee for a cool vibe. Try a white sheer blouse with distressed faded denim hot pants and nude heels or black leather boots.

Another popular celebrity look is the black hot pants plus tailored jacket, usually finished with black leather boots. Of the three hot pants combinations, this one though is more fitting for fall. Sooyoung again shows off the look in a shapely taupe marching band-style blazer with gold chain. The fun thing about this look is that there are many structures of jackets to choose from, from slim, to boxy and cropped.

So if your legs can take the cold and bring in the heat, choose from any of these Korean celebrity looks and start flaunting your own hot pants!
