These K-Pop Girls Are Rocking Our Favourite ‘90s Fashion Trends

From small shoulder bags to scrunchies, fashion trends from the 1990s are now everywhere. We’re loving the new takes and reinterpretations of some of these trends that have made a comeback. Here, we round up some of our favourite ‘90s fashion trends as seen on these female celebrities.

Tube Tops

The tight-fitting wardrobe staple is easy to style and looks great with virtually any pair of denim jeans. This versatile piece can also be layered and worn under a jacket or blazer for a dressier look.

Ribbed Cardigans

Ribbed, buttoned cardigans are all the rage now and are basic but trendy pieces that can’t go wrong. They come in fun, pastel colours like blue and pink and are also available in neutral colours like white, brown and black. Style it with a straight-cut mini skirt for a playful look or with a pair of jeans for a more laid-back and casual look.

Baguette Bags

Characterised by its short shoulder strap and narrow, rectangular shape, the Fendi Baguette bag was the it bag back in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Many styles similar to the Baguette have since popped up with slight variations in shape and size, so you’re bound to find one that’ll tickle your fancy.


Clips and pins may be the go-to hair accessories but thick, solid-coloured headbands are making a comeback and can easily amp up one’s look. A wide and chunky headband makes a good statement piece while a regular one adds that finishing touch to complete one’s look.


Available in a variety of colours and designs, scrunchies are versatile and can pretty much match any casual outfit. They can also be worn on your wrist as an accessory whilst providing convenience should you ever need a hair tie when you’re out and about.


Iconic Types Of Bangs Sported By K-Pop Girl Groups

Girl group members are no stranger to new hairstyles and colours, having to change up their look every now and then with each comeback; virtually every girl group has had its fair share of members having bangs in one style or another at some point in time. Regardless of whether the bangs are curly or straight, bangs are well-loved and have been seen on many girl group members.  Here, we take a look at some of the most iconic types of bangs sported by this generation’s girl group members.

See-through Bangs

Arguably the most popular style, see-through bangs are a staple in girl groups – almost every girl group has had at least one member sporting the see-through bangs look. It’s a style that instantly shaves years off one’s age for a more youthful look. While trends come and go, the see-through bangs style will never go out of style, that’s for sure.

Full Bangs

A style that changes up one’s look immediately, full bangs can look either cute or chic, depending on the look the person is going for. The duality is strong with this style, as seen on girl group members like Lisa, Joy, Momo and Minnie who rock it both ways on stage and off-stage.

Choppy Bangs

Choppy bangs were trendy for a while and while they’re not as often sported, it is a quirky style that ends above the eyebrows for an edgy look to stand out from others. They can also be grown out to straight bangs or see-through bangs, depending on how thick the choppy bangs are.

Highlights from KAMP Singapore (Ft. Super Junior, NCT 127, Chungha, Stray Kids and More)

The inaugural KAMP festival made its first stop in Singapore for 2 days on 9 & 10 November, with both days boasting a stellar line-up — (Day 1) AleXa, Chungha, Ha Sungwoon, GFRIEND and NCT 127; (Day 2) Momoland, Sonnet Son, WJSN, Stray Kids and Super Junior.

Fans got to interact with their favourite idols as they walked down the red carpet in the afternoon, before a whole night of performances at the Singapore Indoor Stadium – it was truly an unforgettable weekend. Here’s what you may have missed on Day 1:

The exciting night kicked off with the first act, GFRIEND – who treated the audience with an 8-song set. The girls performed fan-favourite “Fingertip”, before raising the energy of the crowd with “Navillera”, “Life Is A Party” and “Vacation”. They truly knew how to set the mood for the night.

Yerin and Eunha even showed their aegyo (cuteness) for the lucky audience that night!

GFRIEND changed up the atmosphere and performed a ballad version of their hit “Rough”, showcasing their powerful vocals. The audience was in awe whenever main vocalist, Yuju, hit her powerful high notes. The girl group ended off their set with “A Starry Sky”, “Fever” and “Time For The Moon Night”.

Former Produce 48 contestant, AleXa, made her strong debut on the Singapore stage with her debut single, “BOMB”, filling up the huge stage with her powerful dance moves and strong stage presence. At the red carpet, she encouraged everyone to add this upbeat song onto their workout playlists.

AleXa then busted out powerful dance covers of boy group numbers “DRAMARAMA” and “Warrior”, exuding confidence throughout the stadium. Despite having only just made her debut last month, AleXa proved that she is a force to be reckoned with.

Next up was Ha Sungwoon – who made his return to Singapore, but this time as a soloist. He performed his debut track “Bird”, followed by “Tell Me I Love You”, immediately captivating the crowd with his soothing vocals.

He continued his set with “Don’t Forget”, “Bluemaze”, refreshing tune “Blue”, and lastly “What are you doing today?!”. Despite being a solo act, Ha Sungwoon filled up the entire stage that night with his natural charms and good looks.

Dance queen Chungha took over the stage with her recent hit “Snapping”, showing off her amazing dance skills and power vocals. She exclaimed, “I always get the best energy in Singapore!”

Chungha got the entire audience singing along to “Gotta Go”, “Rollercoaster”, and her debut song “Why Don’t You Know” – songs proved to be loved by everyone, both fans and non-fans alike. The crowd went wild as Chungha ended off her set with “Bang Bang”, a performance in which she played a huge part creating the iconic choreography during her stint on Produce 101 back in 2016.

The last act for the night was NCT 127, kicking off their set with their hits “Fire Truck” and “Cherry Bomb”. Their perfectly synchronized dance moves and high energy proved why they receive so much love and attention not only in Singapore, but all around the world.

Just as we thought the cheers from the audience could not get any louder, NCTzens proved us wrong as their loud chants filled up the entire stadium when NCT 127 performed “Touch”, “Replay” and “Regular”. The sea of bright green light sticks, accompanied by the loud fan chants, was truly a sight that night.

“Even though we are not here (in Singapore), we will always be thankful, and we will always come back,” Mark said, before NCT 127 ended off the night with “Superhuman”.

Show Review

GFRIEND Takes Buddies on a Wild Ride at the Singapore Stop of “Go Go GFRIEND!”

“You Are Not Alone”

This sentence was what tugged my heartstrings the most after Saturday’s show. For idols, it was a declaration that they would always work hard and for the fans, it was a promise that they will always be here to support.

GFRIEND is a group comprising 6 girls from Source Music. Debuted in 2015 and with a successful career spanning close to 5 years, these girls are definitely one of Korea’s current representative girl groups. Well known for their explosive vocals, sleek dance moves and addictive tunes, the sextet has finally made their way back to Singapore to greet their local fans after a long 1,050 days.

And boy, did they not disappoint on their latest visit. Over the span of almost 3 hours, local Buddies (the name of their fans) were taken on a wild ride along with the girls. Starting off the night’s show on a high note with their infectiously cheery tracks, GFRIEND made their long-awaited appearance onstage wearing bright pastel, coordinated outfits while dancing to well-known hits such as “Me Gustas Tu”, “Life Is A Party”, “Vacation” and more.

Riding onto that energetic momentum, GFRIEND also gave Buddies a glimpse into their lives pre-debut when they showcased never-before-seen performances halfway into the set. Split into two different sub-units, “World Peace” and “Hug Hug”, the contrasting concepts gave fans a chance to know more about the group’s could-bes and what-ifs.

The former, which consisted of members SinB, Sowon, and Yuju had an edgier and chicer concept, while the latter, which consisted of Eunha, Yerin, and Umji had a more flamboyant, playful one. Accompanied with a humorous VCR that depicted the behind stories of each of the group names and songs, this portion was definitely a hit with the crowd as they entranced us with their adorable antics.

Though the concert began with a refreshing and youthful vibe, as the night went on, the girls made a 180-degree change to show off a more mature yet refined style and color of theirs. Versatility at its finest, we were impressed at their abilities to pull off a variety of styles without compromising on both their song and dance quality.

For one, we are very sure that their performances of “Only 1”, “L.U.V.” and “You Are Not Alone” blew the crowd away. Their ability to bring out the emotions of the song while dancing to those body busting routines was definitely one outstanding highlight to remember.

Even after performing all those crazy dance routines, GFRIEND always made it a point to interact with their fans as much as they possibly could. Occasionally, members would come right up to the edge of the stage to get closer to their fans while waving and blowing kisses nonstop. So much so that I’m pretty sure every fan walked away with at least something to remember them by.

There was just one portion of the concert that left us and the other fans quite unsatiated, and it was when GFRIEND did not perform their latest track “Fever (열대야)” as it was not on the original setlist. However, not wanting to disappoint the eager crowd, the girls performed a small snippet of the tropical-influenced dance track – Acoustic. They didn’t have the audio track for the song due to some technical difficulties but seriously, props to them for knowing their fans so well and giving them what they want.

Overall, the concert was a feast for the ears and the eyes. The girls were outstanding, the setlist was mostly well planned out and we learned so much about the group. Here’s to hoping they will visit our sunny shores again in the very near future!
