K-Fashion Spotlight: Homewear
During this COVID-19 pandemic, whether you’re working from home or having home-based learning, most of us have been spending the majority of our time at home. I’m sure many of us have attended an online lecture or online meeting in our pyjamas—and there’s nothing wrong with that!
But just because no one can see us doesn’t give us an excuse to look sloppy. Comfort is a big aspect in Korean fashion, and we can see this whenever K-pop idols give fans a glimpse into their daily lives.
Even when dressed in homewear, these idols still manage to look super stylish!

Of course, no homewear outfit would be complete without a comfy pair of shorts. Not only can a good pair of shorts help you keep cool in Singapore’s hot and humid weather, they can also save you the trouble of having to get changed when going out to run quick errands.

Oversized t-shirts and streetwear in general may seem like a masculine style, but is actually popular with girls as well! There are even Korean streetwear brands that cater specifically to girls, and it is not uncommon to see oversized t-shirts bearing cute, girly designs.

That doesn’t mean girls can only wear cute designs. Sana may be known for her cute and innocent image, but you wouldn’t be able to tell from her choice of hoodie in private!

And if you’re not a shorts kind of person, or like to spend all day holed up in your air-conditioned bedroom, then you can consider sweatpants and joggers instead. Just like a good pair of shorts, joggers are comfortable enough to be worn at home, but still look stylish enough to be worn outdoors.

While we may not be able to go out much during the Covid-19 pandemic, that doesn’t mean we can’t dress up to stay at home.
Korean fashion focuses on both style and comfort, and because of that, the line between streetwear and homewear is blurred. Oversized tees, hoodies, and sweatpants are just some of the popular streetwear clothing items that can also be rocked as homewear.
