By Julianne Babaran
It would be much easier to be envious of a girl who seemingly has it all but it's no doubt Jennie's way of styling is what attracted big name brands to partner with her in the first place. What she wore before, what she wears now and the way she continues to style herself may seem unfamiliar. You might even think you could never dress that way just because of costs, but nothing can be further from the truth. Styling is free, the clothes are not. Just the same, it's not as impossible as it may seem.
As a normal person outside of the biggest band in the world, Jennie just like anyone else and likes to be casual. There are certain styles she like to repeat, like high crop tops and low waist pants, top and cardigan paired with mini skirts. It's easy to spot her very girly and carefree style as she tries to look good even in casual wear. These little elements can help you navigate and emulate her style in a way that complements you.
In this article we'll breakdown the most common elements she wears in the different article of clothing she wears.
Tops : Crop Tops
Crop Button Up

Ribbed Black Crop Top
The kind of crop top she wears varies a lot in style, but the elements of having balance remains. Here she wore a black long sleeve crop top with cut out in the back but she paired it with pants, showing just enough and not too much.

Although photos of her in mini skirts are very popular, Jennie loves midi skirts just as much. In casual style, she wears it very casually, usually layering it with something. Midi skirts are very refreshing and will help stand out as opposed to mini ones which may be uncomfortable at times.

White Ruffled Layered Skirt
We think that Jennie in midi skirts are the epitome of the "that girl" aesthetic for K-pop idols. She rocks the flowy bottoms when strolling around or when she's just on her days off. We love to see the skirt give comfort and character. The skirt makes the outfit seem more high fashion and though out than reality.

Dresses : Full Length or Mini
Sage Midi Dress
Dresses are gonna be quite hard to narrow down as she wears many different kinds. But the ones she wears casually and probably ones we can afford (let's be real) include those in midi or full body length.
We think this mint colored one can be fitting for anyone. It looks especially beautiful against an outdoor backdrop. The color green is natural to the eye and is therefore more comfortable, it can match any purse without much fear of clashing colors. Flip the switch on mini dresses and rock this style. Get it here.

Jackets : Bold Blazers
Black and White Gingham Blazer
Jackets or coats are staple if you travel as much as Jennie. A bold patterned one is crucial for that high end look as it shows you find importance in looks over practicality, of course we'd leave that in between up to you.

Pastel Patterned Beanie
A patterned one makes a look more adorable and you, approachable. Styling multi colored neutral ones like these won't ruin your outfit at all.
Shoes : Sneakers
We wonder when white sneakers will ever be out of style, but apparently Jennie wants them to stay. One way to elevate the boring pair though is to get ones with a slight color detail to compliment the colors in your outfit. It's thought out but not overkill.
Getting plain ones with a bit more platform style such as these are great too. It's more trendy and can elevate not only your height but your outfit as well. She styles it here with baggy pants again very y2k but subtle.
Loafers can be a hit or miss, but they aren't worn by everyone and that is the point. In high fashion, some things are alien to everyday people. But loafers can be for everyone as it gives a high fashion feel as not everyone styles and wears them the same way.
Sunglasses : Black Tinted Staples
Basic Black Sunnies
If you think you need sunnies with the Gentle Monster price tag, you're wrong. Small frame black ones like these are super duper versatile, as demonstrated, you can just use them as a head accessory if wearing them properly is too flashy.
Metal Framed Sun Glasses
Straying away from the masses, lightly tinted ones with metal frames are more unique and classy. They can be edgy and elegant as the thin frame doesn't disrupt the look.
