The surprise collaboration stage with J. Y. Park, which was recently performed by IVE Jang Won Young on KBS2’s “Music Bank”, became a hot topic.
The appearance of Jang Won Young, who showed a presence equal to J. Y. Park with her cool dance line, was noteworthy enough, but the fashion of Jang Won Young, who perfectly transformed to match the pure white dress code, was the performance’s highlight.
The most eye-catching thing in her styling is the popular item “Leg Warmer” that hit this year’s F/W season. Jang Won Young wore leg warmers made of white padding material in the form of boots, effectively emphasizing not only the winter atmosphere but also her slender legs.
Leg warmers, designed to cover the entire calf from the ankle, have been attracting attention in the domestic fashion world for a while under the name of “knee socks“. Leg warmers once played a unique role as an item that compensated for the shortcomings of those with calf complexes, but they were forgotten in the public’s memory as they became rustic items in the rapid flow of fashion.
However, as the so-called “Y2K” (Year 2000) fashion has emerged as a trend again, leg warmers have also been splendidly revived.
Amid the popularity of leg warmers, celebrities are already capturing items with various materials and designs.
The way to create hip leg warmers is to match leg warmers with shoes that break existing stereotypes such as pump shoes, ballerina shoes and simple design sneakers. If you put a point on the styling of mini dresses and shorts with leg warmers, you can complete a more stunning look.
The material and fit are also more diverse. Like BLACKPINK Jennie and NewJeans Danielle, leg warmers made of knit material create a more feminine atmosphere by matching them with ballerina shoes. Wide-fit leg warmers, such as those TWICE Nayeon enjoys wearing, complete a lively and hip Y2K look.
