Im Na-yeon, better known as simply Nayeon, is a member of the girl group Twice. The lead vocalist has captured hearts around the world with her charm and vocals. Despite being the oldest member of the girl group, she is considered the “fake maknae” by ONCE (Twice fans) due to her natural aegyo.
Like fellow Twice member Momo who usually opts for casual, comfortable staples offstage, Nayeon also goes for wearable, everyday pieces, but with a more feminine twist. I’ve styled Nayeon with sweet and romantic pieces in her favorite color that accentuate her equally sweet personality.
I’ve taken major inspo from the elegant vintage outfits in the girl group’s latest music video for Feel Special. Focusing on minute details, I’ve styled Nayeon in a matching purple top and skirt with a retro touch.
Channeling the girly vibes of the MV, the lightweight purple dotted cropped top has billowy puffed sleeves and a ruched center front that accentuates its soft chiffon silhouette. Instead of going for a trendy pleated mini skirt, I’ve chosen a tailored asymmetric piece. The deconstructed skirt has blazer-inspired details, with a collared waistband and a welt flap pocket on one side. The straight-cut form of the asymmetric skirt contrasts with the top, adding a unique tailored touch to the elegant outfit.
Nayeon means “graceful” and “beautiful” in Korean, so faux leather shoes and a crossbody bag in a reddish hue fit that bill. Perfect for fall, the warm tones are also great for contrasting the cool and cutesy creamsicle shades of the top and skirt.
I’ve chosen sleek, pointed Mary Jane flats with a T-bar design instead of the classic round-toe version to complement the tailored skirt’s elongated silhouette. Nayeon’s go-to bag is a crossbody, and this piece is constructed in corduroy for a retro touch.
Having matched the top with the skirt and the shoes with the bag, I continue this retro styling with the singer’s accessories. Wirework dangling heart earrings embellished with faux pearls and a gold-toned crocodile hair clip that’s also embellished with faux pearls complete the singer’s outfit! Small glimpses of the gold-toned metal bases also match the gold-toned details of the faux leather pieces.
