Welcome back to Get The Look! Seeing as the weather has been pretty nice lately, I figured that it was a great time to look into many idols’ favourite accessory – sunglasses! From MV styling to public events and airport fashion, many kpop stars wear really cool, designer sunglasses, and I think it’s one of the unique, defining traits of kpop fashion. Let’s have a look at how to affordably recreate this part of kpop style.

Let’s get to it!

Look 1 – G Dragon

Look 2 – Zelo

Look 3 – Minzy

Not willing to pay that much? Then the pair of glasses on the bottom right are a much more reasonable £7.97 from Sheinside.com. Can’t be bad!

Look 4 – CL

sunglasses CLI always loved this look of CL’s in 2NE1’s Go Away MV, and I found a pretty similar pair on ASOS.com for £15.00 (Iggy Bling Sunglasses). Sweet!

Look 5 – Zico

These glasses remind me of a pair of sunglasses Zico wears in Block B’s MV for Very Good. They’re not quite the same, but they have a similar vibe. (Black Letters Print Round Sunglasses – Sheinside.com £8.16)

Look 7 –  4Minute

These ones are 4Minute inspired, especially when you think of their latest MV and each of the girls wears a pair of bright wayfarers at some point. You can get your own pair from ASOS.com for £26.00. (Minkpink Say Anything Mirrored Sunglasses)


Well, I could keep going, but perhaps I should leave it there for today! Do any of you guys own sunglasses like these? Are you planning on accessorising your summer with kpop-inspired items? Let us know! See you next time!
