12 Fashion And Beauty Looks That Prove ITZY Are The Rising Style Stars Of This Generation
It hasn’t been long since ITZY debuted, but they’re already bagging awards across all platforms and gaining more and more fans with their unique sound, bright personalities, and undeniable talent. It’s not hard to see why they’re being called monster rookies and most buzz-worthy girl group to debut this year. Members Yeji, Yuna, Ryujin, Lia, and Chaeryeong each have their own charms that viewers can’t resist, but there’s one more thing that fans are often looking forward to seeing aside from their performances: their stylish, eclectic fashion that sets the trend among today’s Gen Z. Here are some of their best fashion and beauty looks that are definitely 10 out of 10!
1. Back to school
The school uniform concept is nothing new in K-pop, with many groups having performed in the same look. It’s because it usually symbolizes youth, fun, and a carefree life. But ITZY gave their own take on this style by combining preppy, edgy, and sporty elements in mismatched items that still look cohesive when they’re together.
2. Tropical twist
Their single “ICY” came out in the summer, so they interpreted the season with tropical and nautical-inspired outfits that had prints showing images of palm trees, anchors, blue skies, and colors of the sea. It’s cute, refreshing, and a cool way to match the title of their song.
3. Army girls
Camouflage prints were given a sporty and sexy vibe in one of ITZY’s performances, with details and cuts that gave this uniform diverse combinations. They didn’t go for the typical army shades such as khaki, grey, and brown, and instead added touches of colors like yellow and bright orange. Fishnet pieces were also added as inner and outerwear to make a bold statement.
4. Bright like a diamond
These beautiful girls are already shining with their stunning looks and stage presence, but their sequined, embellished, and glittery outfits make them glow a little bit more. The outfits also feature different textures and materials. Some of the most unique pieces include metallic pastels, holographic accessories, and bejeweled denim.
5. Splash of colors
ITZY often brings a combination of colors that welcome you to their fun, energetic, and dynamic stages. From iridescent shades of neon to subtle pops of color, the group is always on top of the trends with their chic streetwear aesthetic.
6. Designer muses
Versace, Fendi, Balmain, Chanel, Alexander Wang, among many other high fashion brands — you name it, ITZY has probably worn it. They’re wearing logomania loud and proud in altered, differently styled pieces that give each member a distinct look.
7. Fashion event and red carpet-ready
Whether it’s casual streetwear or more dressy looks, the girls know how to play with their looks so they will always stand out. They wore clean, minimalist, and sleek all-white outfits that were a refreshing contrast on the red carpet. When it came to sitting in the front rows of fashion shows, however, ITZY amped up their wardrobe with voluminous sleeves, trendy statement pieces, and lots of attitude.
8. Subtle accessories and makeup
ITZY members know how to highlight their pretty features, so they often do not go overboard when it comes to makeup — hints of sparkle, color, or eyeshadow stickers elevate their look. Same goes for their accessories. Because their outfits are already loud and bold enough, they often stick to elegant, understated jewelry.
Whether it’s a mature, high fashion editorial or a natural beauty shoot, ITZY can pull off a variety styles that girls of many different age groups can take inspiration from.
10. Girl crush looks
In their music video for “Dalla Dalla,” ITZY wore strong glamorous outfits that introduced them as an empowered and cool girl group. They arrived into the scene telling the world that “I am different,” and they are indeed!
11. Great personal style
Off camera, the members are often seen in more comfy and casual wear that is anything but boring. They often accessorize their outfit with a cute designer bag, cool outerwear, and overall simple looks that show how they enjoy a normal day out.
12. Confidence levels up
What makes their styles work is not really the expensive designer clothing, but their confidence that shines through with every look. They sing proudly in “Dalla Dalla” and “ICY” — “I love myself!” and “They keep talking, I keep walking!” We can see it clearly, and it’s an encouraging message to all their listeners: They’re different, they don’t care, and they’re loving every bit of who they are.
