If you’re like me how loves to follow the trends of the KPOP fashion industry that you’re in luck as today as part of the
There are a lot of things that we love about Jennie of Blackpink. With the members of Blackpink being known as IT girls themselves, it is of no surprise that a lot of fans love to follow the things that they do, most especially when it concerns fashion.
We will be covering all four members of Blackpink in this series and for now, we will be focusing on the YG Princess herself, Jennie Kim.
If I were to describe Jennie’s fashion sense, it would be one, refreshing, and two, free-spirited. Simply because she doesn’t follow one simple fashion trend to dictate her style. She loves experimenting with different styles just as long as she doesn’t sacrifice and lose sight of comfort while wearing her clothing items.
I heard someone say on the internet that the way Jennie dresses is very reminiscent of how our moms would dress back in the days, and they’re not wrong! As observed, Jennie’s casual outdoor style is often influenced a lot by the Y2K fashion aesthetic and the 70’s fashion wear. The Y2K fashion aesthetic is the fashion trend that rose from the early 2000s popularized by iconic influencers such as Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Jennie’s way of styling the Y2K aesthetic is subtle, mixing it in with the elements of the 90s fashion. She sports the 70’s fashion style so well when she wears high-waisted pants and with long-sleeved blazers.
Jennie also loves sporting sportswear in her fashion style. Being an ambassador for Adidas is one sign of that, but she just loves wearing sportswear and incorporating it with her other styles, such as wearing it with crop tops which she is often seen wearing as part of her airport fashion.
South China Morning Post describes Jennie’s style as “a cool and effortless millennial style” that attracted even the eyes of Chanel, coincidentally making her the brand’s ambassador for Korea due to her trendy style.
So how does one exactly dress like Jennie? Well today, we are going to give you the essential fashion pieces that you need to have to follow this trendy IT girl’s fashion sense. Are you ready?
The famous green top
This green top that she wears on this Instagram post is known widely by her fans, and we don't blame them! This simple, cute, green top that is highly inspired by the Y2K fashion aesthetic is very fashionable even when worn alone as a top and Jennie proves that the moment she posted this image. This type of fashion style is already popular among the enthusiasts of the aesthetic, to begin with, so it's no surprise that when Jennie started wearing it on her own, the hype to get a top like this as part of your wardrobe rose to heights, making this a must-have for all who aspires to dress like Jennie.
Anybody can practically wear this as it is. The top is simple and when you pair this with either a simple high-waisted jeans or low-waisted ones, it will still look great.
Sportswear is fashion itself
We weren’t kidding when we said Jennie loves to wear sportswear. Though this Instagram post was for their Adidas promotion, that doesn’t mean that she only wears it on times like these. She is often seen wearing sweatpants when going to the airport, and even incorporating her gym shorts on normal days just like the ones that we have below.
The trick is to find a way to make it seem fashionable and sleek. Since Jennie doesn't want to remove comfort from her style, she makes it so that even wear gym clothes looks high- end even on a normal day. The white sneakers help elevate the outfit to make it seem more casual and outdoor-worthy. Also, adding in non-gymwear pieces makes it feel like a complete outfit altogether, plus with added small accessories to add layers on your outfit.
Cropped tops and blouses
An essential in Jennie's closet is her crop tops. I mean, who doesn't love them, right? But for Jennie, these cute tops are the clothing pieces that she will wear when she feels like when she doesn't feel like dressing up. I mean, sure, wearing a Chanel crop top might just be the biggest flex here, but there are also a lot of instances where Jennie was seen wearing crop tops on many occasions. Here are a few:
Feeling a little tired to dress up? Then a simple crop top is the way to go! Just pair this with a high trouser pants or a high-waisted jeans to complete the casual attire. Just make sure that you add more details to your attire such as adding a simple necklace (just like Jennie!) and wearing white sneakers.
Jennie is constantly seen wearing long, midi skirts with small patterns on it. She often pairs this white a pair of white sneakers and a simple top, like this one from her Instagram post where she styled the midi skirt with a simple white top and a pair of white mules. She also added some accessories to her outfit just like this long necklace with emerald design, and a pair of gold earrings. She also has a small bag that has a daisy design as an attraction piece.
And just like what Jennie did here, you can rock midi skirts this way. The key is to make sure that your sneakers are showing as these are still part of the outfit. Since she has a simple top, she added more layers and textures to her outfit with her small purse with the daisy design and some accessories such as the necklaces and earrings.
You will often see Jennie wearing long pants/trousers in her Instagram photos. This is one of those pieces that reminds you of a lot of the 70's fashion that she loves to incorporate into her daily outfits. Rarely will you see her use skinny jeans on a day out, and instead you will often see her wearing these high-waisted or mid-waisted pants whenever she goes. Pairing these pants with a crop top, a simple shirt, or a long-sleeve, wherever she's comfortable, she goes for any among them.
Jennie also loves to wear long dresses on casual days. Just like how she’s able to bring midi skirts into fashionable pieces, she is able to make these long dresses not only feel cuter, but more comfortable to wear. I mean, just looking at her sporting those dresses, I can’t help but think that maybe wearing long dresses on a casual day of shopping outside isn’t so bad after all!
From her Instagram account, we found three ways on how she wear these dresses:
First, there’s a Sunday dress she is seen looking like she’s going to a picnic on a summer day. The dress is flowy, and is found to be paired with a pair of white sneakers, which we often see Jennie wearing whenever she goes on a casual walk.
Second, where she went to go out for a simple shopping day.
And lastly, her straight dress that she took while roaming around the street at night. This time, it looks like she is wearing a white shirt under a spaghetti-strapped, blue, straight dress, which is highly reminiscent of Y2K fashion, honestly.
If you have been observing Jennie whenever she goes somewhere, you will find that she never forgets to wear her pair of black sunglasses. Whether big or small, her outfit doubles its styling power whenever she sports her sunglasses.
Be reminded though that not all fashionable glasses will be suited to you. Just make sure of your face shape and the shape of the glasses and check if it works for you.
Here's another glasses scenario by Jennie:
So what can we take from this article? Following Jennie’s fashion style doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to follow all the clothing that she wears. By this article, we have derived those essential pieces that we can have, and experiment on ourselves, still being influenced by the style that screams Jennie.
What we love about Jennie's fashion style is that it is effortless to look at that makes you feel like you can sport it yourself (and you definitely, can!). The way she manages to make you love every outfit that she wears is probably a charisma that is unique to her. But one thing that we sure love about her is how in every outfit that she wears, she never fails to wear it with confidence and finesse.
