Korean actress Shin Min-ah is popular for many reasons: her notable acting talents which were broadcasted in well-known dramas such as “The Devil”, “Oh My Venus”, and most recently, “Chief of Staff”; her natural and effortless youthful beauty; her 5-year relationship with fellow Korean model-actor Kim Woo Bin, which has garnered plenty of attention and buzz over the years, rendering them as one of the Korean entertainment industry’s top power couples.
Recently on April 5, Shin Min-ah celebrated her 36th birthday. To celebrate the showbiz journey of his beautiful actress, we’re taking a deep dive into her most iconic fashion looks through the years.
From oversized military jackets worn as a mini dress to a Chanel tweed jacket matched with silky white sequinned trousers, Shin Min-ah’s style books are full of fun, experimental and chic pairings that we’re dying to try out for ourselves.
Take inspiration from 10 of her best looks:
Dressed in an Alexander McQueen checkered dress with a double wrap leather belt, Shin Min-ah looked polished and smart at the “Chief of Staff” press conference. Showing off her love for feminine, sophisticated cuts, the actress pulled off the dress – which featured oversized flared capped sleeves, a houndstooth print, a ladylike sheath silhouette, and box pleats along the neckline – flawlessly.
A colourful plaid suit plays down on the sombre tone of its mature grey counterpart. Case in point: this playful dark blue co-ord on the beaming Shin Min-ah hits the sartorial sweet spot between looking playful and sophisticated. The jacket, cut to an oversized silhouette, features structured sleeves and a well-tailored fit. It was paired with an A-line mini dress in the same print and a pair of Roger Vivier sneakers with leather tassels for a casual spin on the look.
When it comes to wearing an oversized suit, a relaxed and laid back look tends to emphasise the suit’s comfort and style. Showing us how to pull off oversized tailoring in an effortlessly feminine way, the Korean actress dresses a grey boxy blazer with oversized proportions and a pair of baggy wide-leg trousers with chic white sneakers, a saturated crossbody bag which offers a pop of colour to the look, and minimal accessorising.
A true risk taker to stan: Shin Min-ah shows us that biker shorts do have a place on the red carpet by rocking an oversized longline tuxedo jacket with satin lapels and a pair of biker shorts at the Cartier launch party in September 2019.
Endorsing the trend of pairing suits with shorts, the actress looked elegant in the ensemble. If you’re planning to cop this look for yourself, remember to heed this style tip: ensure your oversized tuxedo jacket is nipped at the waist like Min-ah’s for a flattering and feminine finish. Offset the masculine proportions with a pair of stiletto heels with thin floss-like straps.
The actress attended Chanel’s “The Ink Library” beauty event in September 2019 dressed in a blue and red tweed jacket from Chanel’s FW ‘19 collection coordinated with a white high neck blouse and a pair of high-waisted sequinned trousers. The tweed jacket grounds the ostentation of the sparkly trousers, giving rise to an ensemble that is both tasteful and chic for an extravagant event.
Posing alongside her treasured brown poodle Woody who is widely adored on her Instagram page, Shin Min-ah dons a one-shoulder white blouse with exaggerated puffy folds and a pair of high-waisted black slim trousers with side slits clasped with pins. Finishing her look with gold hoop earrings and gold bangles, she completed her stunning contemporary ensemble with a pair of Roger Vivier buckled loafers.
Dressed in a long grey coat, a black turtleneck top, a pair of slim-fit trousers, bright lemon yellow ballet flats and a boxy tote bag sling across the body, Shin Min-ah looked immaculate and polished while pulling off this simple and versatile style that’s perfect for the office. Swap out the turtleneck top with a simple plain tee or a boxy-cut shirt for a less stuffy look suitable for the warm weather in Singapore.
The actress wore a grey Stella McCartney dress designed with structured shoulders and a nipped waistline for an exaggerated hourglass silhouette for the Tomorrow With You Drama Press Conference in 2017. The dress features an asymmetrical collar neckline and a buttoned front opening for a minimalist and modern feel.
Effortless airport dressing 101: wear an oversized military jacket buttoned up as a dress like Shin Min-ah. Dressed in a sage green parka with multiple pockets for a utilitarian effect, the actress finished her look with ankle boots and a black satin purse with a crystal buckle. Layered over a black mock neck top underneath, she exemplifies chic and effortless styling fit for travel.
On the set of the 2017 k-drama “Tomorrow with You”, Shin Min-ah wore an autumnal ensemble that’s as romantic and charming as her character, Song Ma-rin. It’s one of our favourite looks she wore during the series: a lovely dark blue floral dress with ruffles paired with an oversized beige trench coat and a pair of brown leather boots. Light with a bohemian spirit, the feminine floral dress was elevated by the contemporary-style coat in voluminous billowy proportions.
