Her feline-like eyes, jaw-dropping dance moves and powerful vocals are just a few reasons why she is one of South Korea’s rising K-pop stars to date. But Jennie’s road to stardom was not as breezy as you’d believe.
Starting her music career at the young age of 14, she remained a trainee for six long years under one of Seoul’s entertainment moguls, YG Entertainment, before finally debuting as one of four members in girl group, BLACKPINK in 2016.
We have to say, her patience paid off as the group gained recognition that same year, with songs like Boombayah (2016), Whistle (2016) and Playing With Fire (2016) topping the music charts of both South Korea and America.
The lead vocalist and rapper went on to make her solo debut late last year (2018), and we think her star will only get brighter. Want to look as youthful, feisty and edgy as her? Here’s how.
Fashion is officially in its bow era and we’re here for it. To cop the look, take a cue from Jennie herself and add a few mini bows to your braids for an extra touch of femininity.
From her Instagram, you can tell that Jennie definitely loves wearing mini-dresses. It complements her figure and it also elongates her legs. To style, you can either pair it with a pair of heels or go for something a little more chunky like a pair of knee-high boots.
One stylish accessory Jennie is always seen rocking is a cute beret. Perfect for second hair days or even to keep yourself warm, we recommend wearing a beret to add some pizzazz to your look.
The chunky sneaker trend has been around for quite some time, and it seems like it’s not going anywhere soon. To match her relaxed athleisure look, Jennie pairs her all-black tracksuit ensemble with a pair of white chunky sneakers that not only complements her overall aesthetic, but it’s also a comfortable and practical pair that you can walk all day in.
Cargo pants have been a staple in many wardrobes in 2022, and it seems like the trend is here to stay in 2023 as well. For a casual look, Jennie pairs her cargo pants with a mini tank and a light bomber jacket for an athleisure update.
Nothing screams Chanel more than their iconic tweed, and that was how Jennie decided to rock the maison’s emblematic fabric — in the form of a red crop top and mini skirt — to show her support for the brand at the Chanel Spring/Summer 2022 collection show.
If you’re looking to spice things up, try opting for a pair of black boots, and layer a few pearl necklaces to create an effortlessly stylish ensemble. Match your purse to your outfit for an added wow factor.
When it comes to ubiquitous trends, you’ll find baggy silhouettes to be one of the most talked-about trends in fashion. Thanks to the current wave of 90’s nostalgia and the widespread embrace of low-key dressing, it’s safe to say that it might just be fashion’s most beloved staple in these past few years.
Now, if you’ve been following Jennie, then you would have probably noticed that the star is seen in many of these casual silhouettes in her off-duty looks, and she always manages to effortlessly pull every look off — be it if she’s in a baggy denim pair of jeans or even a sweater, without sacrificing style over comfort.
One way to update the always popular athleisure trend is to match a casual pair of sneakers with a dressy number. Here, Jennie contrasted her white pair of Yeezy’s with a fitted black crop top and a cute mini skirt.
Alternatively, you can also rock a similar look with a casual dress and a pair of classic sneakers (think Adidas’ Stan Smith) for a look that’s effortlessly quirky but oh-so-cool.
Similar to a men’s shirt, an oversized shirt, when worn as a dress, gives off an air of nonchalant cool. Be like Jennie and channel the laid back vibe by pairing a simple white number, and layer it with an oversized vest.
Jennie knows how to make us go green with envy especially when it comes to her impeccable style. As seen in a few of her posts on Instagram, Jennie seems to have opted for many pastel green ensembles.
A perfect example would be her layered outfit for Christmas. She paired a white shirt, with a comfortable green cardigan and a matching green maxi skirt, topped with a pair of bold green graphic-printed socks to add that extra pop of colour to her look.
Jennie displayed her sultry side when she worked a see-through long sleeve top, while she was wandering the street of Paris. Finish the look with a black Calvin Kleins bra for that relaxed, summer vibe.
While the classic LBD can come off as pedestrian, it never goes out of style. Here, Jennie donned a timeless black LBD number, with a black set of nails to match. To give your look a pop of colour, consider going for a bold, red lip.
Clutches may be the perfect classy bag when it comes to an evening date, but they are not the most convenient when you’re going out and about in town. Think like Jennie: Instead of a minaudière, opt for a crossbody to sling on over your shoulder.
A white cotton t-shirt is an essential garment in any closet. But to give it extra sass, go for one that is cropped instead. Make a statement by wearing yours with a pair of graphic-printed sweatpants to give your ensemble added impact without compromising on comfort.
Girly and understated, checks are closet staples that will add a touch of spice to your ensemble without coming across as too ostentatious. Remember to keep your overall outfit simple in order to allow the statement print to truly shine.
Jeans come in all shapes and sizes now. From cropped to skinny, flare to embellished, there are plenty of options for you to find one that suits your body shape. Since Jennie’s figure leans towards a rectangular shape, a pair of classic, straight-cut, high-waisted denim jeans flatter her perfectly as it gives the illusion of even longer legs, and provide the perfect base for the signature model-off-duty look.
Once you settled on a fit, flaunt it with a pair of Converse sneakers and a statement bag.
An elegant and timeless bag can make your outfit go from zero to 100. Jennie knows this well — here, she’s seen carrying a mini bag with a white flower embellishment from Chanel. Other classic bags you can consider include the Loewe Small Balloon Bag in Nappa Calfskin and Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour.
