Fashion Tips We Learned from Blackpink’s ‘Lovesick Girls’
When you’re looking for new style inspiration, you turn to different kinds of media. There’s your Instagram feed, full of the most aesthetic outfits of the day and happening places to visit. If you follow makeup artists, you’ll see their creations as well. There’s also Pinterest, the home of recipes, DIY hacks, and trends. When you’re on YouTube these days, the trending page may also clue you in on what’s happening to the world of fashion around you, and if you’re a fan of K-pop, you’ve probably seen Blackpink’s latest comeback hit, “Lovesick Girls.”
In their music video and stage outfits, we were treated to several trendy outfits. Here are some fashion tips to guide you:
Layering is Still in
No matter the season, you can layer outfits for a well-planned look. It’s just a matter of choosing the fabrics and prints you put together. In colder months, there are no problems wearing denim jackets or layering sweaters and tees, but during the warmer months, you’ll want to opt for Jisoo’s fishnet stockings as a way to add spice to your outfit without making you sweat throughout. Light cardigans can also give you a casual look, which can even double as your party look paired with a flattering pair of short shorts a la Jennie.
The Hair and Makeup Makes the Look
Lisa’s new hairstyle is now the talk of the town, and for good reason. The short bob with her signature full bangs, with dyed hair underneath the sides of her temples, give her a fresh and updated look. Throughout the whole video, each girl exuded a different vibe, with their different looks making everything look more cinematic. In Rose’s case, her dyed hair added that punk-rock vibe to the music, which was complemented by her fresh makeup. Never underestimate the power of products such as Korean face masks when you do your skincare because they build your skin to have a better makeup base. Ultimately, all the girls looked their best because they all know how to take care of their skin and knew how to dress well.
Animal Prints All the Way
Jennie’s animal print top has enough character on its own, and it’s guaranteed to make her stand out wherever she goes. You can also have this same impactful appearance if you choose your prints wisely. Animal prints make everything look instantly classy, and if you’re the Jennie of your group, you’ll definitely want to stand out this way. However, if you don’t feel like the orange undertones go with your skin, feel free to go for houndstooth print or something more muted with accessories providing pops of color instead. Take Rose’s geometric print matching set as an example. You can wear the pieces separately as well, if you’re not ready for the whole look to get so much attention.
There’s a lot you can do with hair, makeup, and outfits that complement your skin and body shape well. As with anything, the first rule is to always know what works best for you and go for something comfortable that sparks joy.
