Fashion month may be well over with designers planting the seeds for our upcoming summer outfits, and though the glitz and glam of celebrity sightings on the front row may temporarily be over till the next season, saying goodbye to the sartorial soiree doesn’t mean an end in aspirational outfits.

Thanks to the Hallyu wave hitting the fashion industry, we’ve got an unlimited supply of style inspiration fresh off the feeds of the most fashionable K-pop idols.

Off-duty OOTDs have replaced of the front-row snaps, which counts as a win in our books considering the realities of dressing up in Singapore.

Say hello to more low-key looks fitted for the streets—as the travel bug hits Korea, K-pop idols aren’t immune to wanderlust. Girls Generation’s Taeyeon and Tiffany made a pitstop in Paris for the Louis Vuitton and Moschino show respectively, opting for more comfortable ensembles for daytime exploration.

Somi makes a case for going back to basics with the ever-reliable combination of a white t-shirt and denim dungarees, and while we’re on the topic of denim, the Canadian tuxedo makes a stylish return on our feeds thanks to Oh My Girl’s Hyojung.

It seems the baggy pants and crop top combination still reigns in popularity among the it-girls, as LE SSERFAIM’s Yunjin opts for a contrastive combination of a pinstriped top along with baggy cargo pants while Minnie goes for a militant approach, sporting camo cargos during some down-time between touring.

Below, see our favourite off-duty looks from the most fashionable K-pop idols on the radar.

MiuMiu girl Minnie takes on Central Park in laid-back fit, and of course, a MiuMiu purse in hand.

Human Barbie Wonyoung adds a touch of frills to spruce up her hot girl walk outfit. Of course, a black tank top and jeans can’t go wrong, but the frilly additions on the arms do wonders to amp up her feminine charm.

IVE’s Yujin

Fendi’s favourite girl Yujin went for a neutral colour palette as she strolled the streets of Spain in a crocheted halter top and earthy cargo skirt. In true Fendi fashion, Yujin had a trusty Peekaboo purse slung over her shoulder.

TWICE’s Chaeyoung

Chaeyoung is undeniably the dark horse of street style for those in the know.

She’s edgy and not afraid to go a little punk in her dressing—for Paris, the TWICE member dons a ruffled floral skirt with an oversized shirt paired with black boots, giving us major a manic pixie dream girl moment.

Viviz’s SinB

All black is the brief for SinB. Baggy jeans and a black T-shirt can’t go wrong, especially when paired with a pair of Adidas sambas.

Red Velvet’s Seulgi

Kid-core is strong with Seulgi. The K-pop idol looks almost too adorable in an oversized shirt and baggy jeans, an ensemble that could easily be taken right out of our childhood photographs.

Oh My Girl’s Hyojung

Not everyone can pull off denim like Britney and Justin at the 2001 American Music Awards, but Hyojung sure comes close as she dons a dark wash of the Canadian tuxedo on the streets of Seoul.

Girls Generation’s Taeyeon

It may be fall in Paris, but the sweltering hot temperatures on the streets have everyone still in summer attire. Case in point? Taeyeon steps out in a vest and miniskirt for an elevated yet weather-friendly outfit.

Somi brings back the uniform of the 80s: a white t-shirt and dungarees. While the blonde made an appearance looking ever-so-chic at the Prada show, the star proves that even as she dresses down for a stroll on the streets, she’s still that girl.

Chuu goes for the quintessential ‘girl-next-door’ look. Denim shorts and a matching hoodie paired with a casual baseball hat screams comfort, perfect for those days when you just can’t be bothered to think about your outfit.

Yet another classic example of the ‘little top, big pants’ combination, Yunjin shows a little skin with a pinstriped haltertop paired with some baggy cargo pants.

Girls Generation’s Tiffany

Known for her girlish style, Tiffany takes Paris clad in cream, showing off her take on ballet-core as she sports an oversized cardigan and matching minidress, topped off with leg warmers and ballet flats.

Yuqi’s quirky off-duty fit shows off her penchant for pulling off a mixture of styles. The K-pop idol keeps things girly and grunge during her downtime on tour, as she pairs a tiered skirt with western-inspired boots and a bolo tie. To top it all off? A beret from Ganni to pull the look together.
