As a true trendsetter, BLACKPINK‘s Jennie has tried out numerous styles, from CEO chic to pastel retro. Of course, there are definitely a few key looks that appear in her OOTDs again and again. Ever wondered why? Just look closely, and you’ll notice that Jennie’s signature style choices actually accentuate her naturally gorgeous figure, making her look beyond perfection. Here’s a more in-depth look at why she wears these four outfits so often.
1. Crop tops & high-waisted bottoms
Crop tops and high-waisted bottoms are a key element of the “high teen” style Jennie’s been pioneering across South Korea. But alongside wearing them to set a trend, Jennie also opts for crop tops and high-waist skirts or pants to emphasize her waist.
The crop tops hug her waistline, making it look even slimmer and giving her more hourglass-like proportions.
Adding high-waisted bottoms to the mix gives Jennie the illusion of a higher waistline, widening her hips and making her look taller.
2. Co-ord sets
Over the past few years, co-ords have become one of the hottest fashion choices, but they serve another benefit too. Jennie often wears color or pattern-coordinated outfits to make herself look taller.
Wearing a different colored top and bottom piece separates your body into distinct halves, making you look shorter. Notice how tall Jennie looks in this matching suit?
She also gives off the same impression by wearing the same color in different tones. Jennie typically chooses a lighter tone for her top, drawing attention to her upper body to further accentuate how tall she looks.
3. No-shoulder tops
Jennie is constantly seen wearing tops that show off her shoulders, from off-shoulder pieces to strappy-sleeved t-shirts. This serves a double purpose.
For one, it draws attention to the neck and collarbones. As mentioned, making the eyes focus on your upper body makes you look taller.
On top of that, showing more collarbone gives your face the illusion of being smaller. While Jennie’s round cheeks are certainly part of her cutesy appeal, sometimes she likes to emphasize her jawline to give off a charismatic look.
4. Mini shorts & skirts
Last but not least, mini shorts are a staple Jennie outfit piece. That’s because alongside making herself look taller overall, Jennie also loves to make her legs look impossibly long.
Sometimes, she takes things one step further by pairing them with an oversized top that covers the shorts completely.
And when the situation calls for something less casual than shorts, Jennie gets the same effect by wearing miniskirts.
