BLACKPINK Jennie Cute Preppy Look
BLACKPINK member Jennie appears to prefer more preppy looks. If you have a similar, lean body shape like Jennie's, make use of check-patterned clothing.
In Jennie's Instagram, she is seen wearing a navy-color check-patterned dress that perfectly accentuates her figure.
If you add a pearl necklace to your look, just like Jennie has, you can achieve the look of a high-teen star from the '90s!
MAMAMOO Moonbyul and Hwasa Flaunt Unique Styles
Moonbyul prefers more retro-styled looks. One way to achieve this vibe is by making use of denim! And not just navy denim — denim of every color!
In a recent Instagram post, Moonbyul is seen wearing light blue flared jeans with a matching light blue denim vest. She wears the vest over a simple, white, long-sleeved button-up collared top.
This simple look showcases a sophisticated yet retro vibe and requires minimal styling and accessories.
Hwasa, on the other hand, is best known for her girl crush looks. If you have a similar slim yet curvy figure like Hwasa, try out a cropped vest with hip-hugging slacks.
In Hwasa's look, she added a scarf around her neck, adding a little touch of drama to her look. Her look is very reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent's tuxedo suit "Le Smoking."
Oh My Girl Hyojung's Cute Styling
Oh My Girl member Hyojung appears to prefer more Western styles of clothing.
In her Instagram account, she showed off a unique outfit with a ruffle shirt with vertical stripes. This match of texture and pattern helps accentuate the upper body, highlighting her beautiful body lines while not being too revealing. You don't need to give up styling for modesty!
Sunmi Rocks Feminine Clothing
Recently, Sunmi has preferred more girly clothing, flaunting her feminine energy.
On Instagram, Sunmi shared a photo of her in a white lacy, see-through, mesh blouse.
Over the blouse is a grey vest paired perfectly with a skirt of the same color. Her hair is curled, and her make-up is simple. By pairing a white blouse with a tennis skirt, as Sunmi did, you can definitely look young, youthful, and girly.
It's reminiscent of a school girl look, which is highly popular in East Asia.

6. ITZY's Yuna
ITZY's maknae rocked bangs for the group's "Not Shy" comeback, and it was a huge hit with fans! It may have taken some time to get used to, but the look made her look younger and lovelier, which suited her image as the group's youngest member.
7. (G)I-DLE's Minnie
Minnie has a longer face, so adding bangs to her look softens her features without losing her unique charms. It balances out her angular jawline and allows her to shine more brightly while she is on stage. Now, no matter what hair color she has, bangs are here to stay!
8. Red Velvet's Seulgi
Seulgi first rocked short bangs for the group's "Peek-a-Boo" era. The bangs are often called "choppy bangs" or "baby bangs" and are known for being difficult to style due to its unique cut.

9. Weki Meki's Choi Yoojung
Yoojung has consistently rocked bangs ever since I.O.I and now as a member of Weki Meki. Bangs make Yoojung's face appear smaller, which suits her sweet and fruity image. Since she is known as an idol with cute and irresistible visuals, bangs highlight her lovely charms.
10. WJSN's Dayoung
Dayoung's face has rounded edges, so having bangs create the illusion of a natural contour. It allows the idol to have a smaller face while making her jawline appear more angular. It makes her already stunning visuals stand out even more!
