6 Takeaways From BLACKPINK’s Casual Style
There is no doubt that BLACKPINK’s stage outfits are impactful, flashy, and above all, drop-dead gorgeous. Off-stage, the looks the quartet has served us are no less dazzling and carry that special touch of reality from us knowing they were likely put together by the girls themselves. From these moments, we get a peek at their personal sense of style and I, for one, love what I’m seeing. If you’re wondering what BLACKPINK’s casual picks are, just check out these little snippets we have curated!
Blazer it up
There is nothing more tiring (and uncomfortable, for that matter) than being boxed in for hours on end. But the ladies from BLACKPINK have found that the trump card to staying comfy and still nail those airport shots is to blazer it up. Checks, stripes, neutral shades, you name it, they have strutted it. Blazers are incredibly versatile and can add a potent dose of cool-girl chic to any outfit. Jennie, in particular, has demonstrated her love for blazers multiple times and we totally understand why. (That girl looks lethal in them!)
Cropped knits? They are a need
With fall approaching, here’s a nod to BLACKPINK’s penchant for colorful, patterned knits. While Jennie might prefer hers to be more form-fitting, Rosé and Lisa gravitate towards cropped knit sweaters with longer sleeves. Pair them with some high-waisted jeans to create a cheeky peek-a-boo effect à la Rosé (show off those hard-earned abs while you’re at it!) and you’re set.
Go with the printed flow(y) blouses
Now, the BLACKPINK ladies have rocked some darned pretty blouses for their performances, but off-stage, Jisoo evidently has quite an impressive collection of them! Flowy and feminine, blouses drape over the silhouette flatteringly, and while most might confine them to the office, Jisoo shows how you can inject some fun into them with animal and abstract prints.
Off with them shoulders
Universally-flattering, the magic of off-shoulder tops lies in the way they expose and elongate the neck, thereby making wearers look more graceful (and swan-like, for that matter). A fun way to bare some skin, ruffle-detailed off-shoulders are Lisa and Rosé’s pick for daytime casual.
Unleash your inner wild child
I kid, these ladies come nowhere near wild, but a bulky, animal-printed fur-coat is always a nice touch to any casual outfit. Whether you like yours in blot-like spots or splashy stripes, there’s no denying that animal prints are a classic that can be cycled throughout the seasons. This fall, stay snuggly and keep warm in a (faux) animal-printed coat. (If you love the prints, don’t forget to love the animals too!)
Berets, berets, berets
They are everywhere, and not just in France either. While the headgear is most commonly associated with Parisian chic, berets are as cute as a button and make you just so as well. Whether worn jauntily to one side or tilted back, experiment to find your beret-angle and put your best beret forward this fall!
