We’ve decided to dedicate our very first series of posts to the males who often find themselves in a style dilemma, but don’t know where to ask. I imagine that it happens more than most would let on, so along comes this article. Our very first series will be for our male readers, but it surely won’t be the last! There’s much to come, but enjoy the first series that we’ll be posting today.
The “comma” hairstyle is a style suited for every occasion-from formal meetings to casual get-togethers. Idols of late seem to love this hairstyle for its versatility, wearing it to almost all their schedules from their press conferences to their radio talk appearences. However, since the hairstyle has the potential of showing many different sides, it’s important to match this hairstyle with an outfit that can compliment it in the best possible way for every occasion. And what better fashion inspiration is there than the very celebrities who started this trend? We’ll be finding the best outfit pairings for this hairstyle by looking at what trending Kpop Idols and Korean Actors wear to compliment this “comma” hairstyle.
1st Category: Formal Wear
It seems that checkered patterned suits are a popular item of choice for celebs rocking the comma hair trend in a formal way. SHINee’s Key and Actor Park Bo Gum from the hit drama Reply 1988, have both made appearances wearing these kinds of suits with their trending hairstyles. Showcasing a more semi-formal appeal, the two Hallyu stars’ outfits shown below would be perfect for casual work meetings.
Overview of Park Bo Gum’s Outfit+Dupes
Coat: Maison Martin Margiela Grey Glenplaid Classic Coat-$1948.00. (Haha, nope)
Dupe: Meosidda Single-Breasted Plaid Coat-$60.72
Dupe: Saddlebred Long Sleeve Gingham Plaid Oxford Shirt-$25 (Any plaid black/grey and white oxford shirt found in any department store)
Pants: 87mm Doubling Pants (Navy)-$76
Dupe: H&M Melangie Suit Pants-$35 (Main point of pants is to be a little looser than then normal slim fit)
As usual, the classic formal men’s look also matches well with this hairstyle. Really, what hairstyle doesn’t look good with this perfectly simple outfit? The usual black suit and tie is a classic, and adding a coat with a deep red/brown colors would be perfect for fall. This look, worn by Korean Actor Yoo Seung Ho in his drama Remember, shows the common style of men’s formal wear, adding a bit of warm red for the fall. A nice way to add in a bit of color, or at least when you’re outside.
2nd Category: Winter Casual
It’s that time of year again. And no, I’m not talking about the long, miserable nights spent shoveling piles of snow in freezing weather, or the tireless voting and frustration that happens when trying to vote for Seventeen during the 2017 MAMAs (Time to reset my 13 different passwords again), although that term would fit in with describing those events as well. As November rolls around, it’s the time of year for all things cozy-hot chocolate, wool blankets, and of course, warm sweaters. The most common fashion trend of this fall/winter seems to be the “comma” hair with a warm knit sweater, being worn from popular idol group members to rising Hallyu actors. Turtleneck sweaters in particular seem to be a growing trend in these cold winter months.

3rd Category: Streetwear
This last pairing is the most commonly seen on idols, such as EXO’s Chanyeol and Seventeen’s Mingyu. Although the style is often worn with a casual bomber jacket or sweater, simpler outfits consisting of a solid colored dress shirt, are also able to complement the hairstyle for a casual look. For more simple/basic street looks, the common trend is to wear a plain T-shirt, jeans, and have a bomber jacket/sweater be the main point of your outfit. However, remember that streetwear really has no limits. Dig around in your closet, mix and match outfits that you think looks best. The possibilities are endless.
