Among female K-pop idols, some stand out for their unique sense of fashion in everyday life that shows off their personal styles and charms. There’s this so-called “plain-clothes genius,” which is used to describe those who attract attention even when wearing simple outfits.
During the second generation of K-pop, the representative fashionistas in K-pop were Girls’ Generation Sooyoung, Wonder Girls Sohee, f(x) Krystal, and T-ara Hyomin. These female idols are still loved by many for their distinguished styles.
On June 3, Hankook Ilboo enumerated the female K-pop idols in the third and fourth generations who flaunt various styles, from the hip and trendy to feminine and chic, and never fail to catch the attention of the public with their OOTD (outfit of the day).

If we are to pick the hottest fashion icon in the entertainment industry these days, many people would pick BLACKPINK Jennie.

BLACKPINK member Jennie typically shows off her trendy look that involves the use of luxury brand items. As a global ambassador for Chanel, a well-known French luxury fashion house, the “SOLO” singer has established her own style by mixing and matching a variety of high-end clothes, focusing on a classic style.
BLACKPINK Jennie is known for her hip style that matches the current fashion trend without being excessive, even though her look always comes with luxury items costing millions of won.
Lee Chaeryeong from the fourth-generation group ITZY has earned the title of “plain-clothes genius” for her feminine and chic look that is mostly based on a basic style, exuding her own aura.

However, while Sooyoung shows a slightly moody look using luxury items, Kim Doyeon enjoys a simple and natural look that can be easily imitated by various age groups from the 20s to 30s. In particular, the “La La La” singer mixes and matches items of basic style rather than vivid colors and complex details, such as coats, jackets, shirts, and jeans.
