Style Steal: Skulls
Looking for styles similar to what you saw in allkpop’s Trend Alert: Skulls?
Click here and check the sidebar for similar styles that’ll cost you less than $50! I know that most of the styles seem to be marketed to women, but I tried to include a lot of gender-neutral looking styles. If you like it, who cares which department it came from, right?
A few of my favorites:
This skirt has the same skull pattern that B.A.P has been wearing in their “Crash” comeback- less than $40 at Romwe, but going fast!:
This bracelet looks exactly like the one Hyunseong from Boyfriend was wearing in the article, and it costs less that $6
I could totally see the guys of B2ST wearing this shirt! At about $45, it’s a little expensive for my taste, but still cool.
I’ve seen Zinni from GLAM and Ren from NU’EST wear shirts like this, and this one costs less than $25!
Be sure to check out the rest of my picks here and tell me what you think!
Q: What do you think about B.A.P, B1A4, Boyfriend & f(x)?
A: I think everyone but Boyfriend (correct me if I’m wrong) had their share of successful single. And this is my opinion on each group depending mostly on their released tracks.
B.A.P: ADMITTEDLY one of the hottest rookie groups. All the members seem to be very talented in their own way and their charisma on stage is over-the-top. Loved “No Mercy” & “Goodbye”.
B1A4: I liked couple of their songs like “Beautiful Target” and “O.K”. They have a very young atmosphere and it seems to be the concept they are going for.. but for now, they didn’t catch my attention besides their two songs.
Boyfriend: Just from their group name, it makes me cringe at how corny it is. I personally don’t like songs like “Boyfriend” so unfortunately, it’s a no-go for me for now.
f(x): Like I said, I don’t like most of the songs that girl groups releases.. but I actually thought f(x)’s “Electric Shock” and “Nu ABO” was pretty catchy. They seem to have a very consistent image aesthetically and musically.
