Top 10 Kpop Inspired Bottoms You Need in Your Closet 

We often look to our favorite Kpop artists and yearn to be as iconic as our idols. How do they look so effortlessly fashionable? How can we emulate their style in our everyday closet? While we already covered our take on How to Dress Like a Kpop Star, what if we want to dress in a way that’s more appropriate for everyday wear, while still incorporating Kpop elements into our clothes? There’s a certain look when it comes to Kpop clothes and today we’re going to be looking at styles that closely resemble the Kpop aesthetic. Particularly, we’ll be honing in on Kpop inspired shorts you can easily incorporate into your everyday outfit! Let’s start with our take on the top ten Kpop inspired bottoms we think you need in your closet.

Kpop Inspired Shorts

Kombu Pleather Zip Short

Kombu is an edgy pair of pleather shorts that we can easily see Kpop stars rock on the big stage. It has the rockstar aesthetic with its pleather material and multiple zipper details. Its star feature is the double zippers found on both sides of the short’s thighs which can be left as, or unzipped partially to mimic a slightly cascading effect. The unique design is so eye-catching, it’s something we can see Lisa from Blackpink wear, and it’ll make for one of the best Kpop inspired shorts you’ll have in your closet in our humble opinion.

There are mock zipper details stacked on one side of the shorts, while the other side features a dangling pleather suspender strap, which can be worn or hung down.

Azuki Plaid Lace-Up Skort 

Azuki is another pair of Kpop skort that is very similar to our Mochi recommendation above. Much like Mochi, Azuki has the same base and features the slit skort with a leg strap design.

One side of the short has a lace-up design that allows for the whole piece to really pop. If you’re looking for a Kpop skirt that is a little louder, Azuki is it!
