The clothes that Jennie is photographed in are always highly sought-after and sell out almost immediately. It’s no wonder, as she carries her outfits with such elegance (and insane body proportions). Known as the “Human Chanel,” Jennie is the embodiment of the popular “high teen” trend, frequently rocking pastel-toned cropped cardigans and baby tees, wide-leg jeans, headbands and scrunchies, and baguette bags. By balancing on-trend items with luxe, timeless pieces like blazers and leather jackets as well as relaxed athleisure pieces like hoodies and sweats, her style always feels consistent and distinctly hers. As the saying goes, “The fashionable woman wears clothes. The clothes don’t wear her.”

Red Velvet’s Irene
Irene’s fashion sense proves that simple really is beautiful, and there’s nothing wrong with playing it safe. Her airport looks might not be groundbreaking, but they’re foolproof and age well – she’ll never look back on a fashion faux pas and cringe. To emulate her preppy and clean-cut style, invest in high-quality, long-lasting basics: jeans that fit you like a glove, trousers, a button-up and a plaid blazer. Tried-and-true pieces don’t have to be boring, as you can opt for ones with fresh details, such as Irene’s jeans with front seams and split hems. For an effortlessly put-together look, she also likes to mix pieces that come in the same color but different materials. If you’re typically into profesh basics like Irene, look to her long-sleeve plaid and floral midi dresses for inspo, and diversify your everyday wear by dabbling in low-key prints for a soft, femme touch.

Voted by her groupmates as the Twice member with the best fashion sense (she even sews her own clothes!), the rapper takes pride in expressing her personality through her experimental style. She’s also taken to customizing her airport outfits for more explicit self-expression, such as an off-white pullover covered with colorful hand-drawn prints and lettering including “BE YOURSELF” along with lyrics from her favorite song (Breezy by Wouter Hamel) on her tote bag. It’s hard to pin down her style – sometimes she rocks paisley skirts, floral print tops, patchwork jackets and even crochet bags and hats for a Grandma-esque hippie vibe, while other times, she takes on an androgynous, grungy look in band tees, distressed denim, oversized blazers, muscle tanks and Doc Martens. Even when faced with criticism from netizens, Chaeyoung stands firm in her belief that fashion doesn’t have to be understood or accepted by all, remaining unapologetically true to herself.

Former I.O.I and Pristin member Kyulkyung’s airport fashion is modern, playful and almost always colorful – just look at her purple Sailor Moon T-shirt-dress tied together with a purple belt, purple sneakers and purple hair! If you’re not bold enough to go for a full-on color-coordinated ensemble like Kyulkyung, her outfits also offer inspo for more subtle ways to bring in color. For instance, you can wear bottoms and a jacket in a basic color (like black or white), and bring in a pop of vibrancy through your top! You can also match a subtle accessory, such as your socks, hat, scrunchie or even face mask, to a clothing item. It’s truly all in the details. Finally, get inspired by Kyulkyung’s love for a wide range of hats, from berets, beanies and bucket hats to baseball caps and newsboy caps – it’s a great fix for bad hair days and an easy way to add character to lazy outfits.
