How to Accessorise Like a K-Pop Idol in Nigeria

May 31, 2022

K-pop idols have the best style. Watch their interviews and music videos to see for yourself. As a K-pop fan, it makes sense to want to copy them. To pull off the gorgeous aesthetic, you have to note a few things like wearing many silver accessories and owning lots of rings. Here are all the other awesome ways to look like your favourite K-pop idol.

Lots of soft coloured dye

Hair dye is obviously not an accessory, but with the way K-pop idols do it, it might as well be. Will you get disowned by your Nigerian parents? Probably. But at least you’ll maintain beauty.

Wear long earrings

And I mean long ones. If it’s not the type that’ll make amebo people take another look when you pass by them, then you’ve not even started. Bonus points if you have multiple piercings.

Buy leather accessories

So what if the searing Nigerian sun peels off the leather and people look at you funny? What do they know? In fact, make it afro-fusion, leather belt and native wear, or leather vest and agbada. Go wild with it.

Own boots

You won’t even look too far off from most Nigerians these days because everyone owns boots. Boots will elevate your outfit and give you that K-pop “look”, but don’t go for the basic ones. Think spikes and platforms that’ll increase your height by seven.

Fight the heat with heat

Always wear leg warmers and hand warmers. You get to look like your favourite K-pop idol while manifesting a life in a country where you can’t wear those without fainting. 

Chains

At your discretion, layer the fuck out of your chains until your neck is heavy. It doesn’t even have to match or anything. Your neck is your oyster; go ham. 

Fake tattoos

Whether you want to believe it or not, your favourite idol probably uses fake tattoos. You too can do it, and the best part? It’s not permanent enough for you to get disowned!

Rings

Come on, if you didn’t know to stock up on rings, do you even like K-pop? With rings, the chunkier, the better. Think giant skulls or recent decorations.
