K-POP's boom has placed Korea on the map because of its unique music style, full-scale performances, and talented performers. But other than the music, Korean eye candy, as well as the popularity of Korean dramas, their effortlessly cool and chic sense of style has also been famous around the world! With their statuesque figures and flawless skin, they transform the basic pieces in our wardrobe and make them look hip and trendy. From street wear to super kawaii looks, Koreans can rock any outfit! And we totally can, too! To help you out, we've listed below 8 Korean-inspired outfit combinations that you can totally wear to school, to the mall, or even in your room when you just feel like performing to your favorite K-POP jam! Happy styling Candy Girls!

 1 Koreans love to wear tennis skirts in different colors. For a sportier look, pair yours with a comfy white tee and accessorize with a cap. Match it with your favorite rubber shoes and you're ready to play the sport while looking stylish!
