It’s no surprise that BLACKPINK Jennie is already a bonafide style icon. Nicknamed the “Human Gucci”, Jennie is best known for her trendsetting style and unique fashion sense. Her resume is no joke: in just 7 short years, Jennie has already snagged multiple brand collabs with high-end fashion and beauty brands, selling out every product she’s featured with. Currently, she’s a brand ambassador for CHANEL Korea and spokesmodel for Amore Pacific, both of which have dubbed her as an image of luxury and fashion.
With over 20 million followers on Instagram, Jennie’s outfits are a constant source of inspiration for her fans. She’s also known for having airport fashion that manages to be casual yet elegant, rocking everything from baggy pants and graphic tees to crop tops and trendy coats. She takes complete charge of her look, too; whether she’s going solo or working with supergroup BLACKPINK, Jennie assists in the styling of her outfits.
Here, we dish on how you can snag iconic BLACKPINK Jennie outfits for less:
Is there anything more iconic than 180722 Jennie? Donning a baby blue 90’s CHANEL crop top and baggy black pants, this airport look is proof that you can be both comfy and glamorous.
Unfortunately, Jennie’s CHANEL crop is not only extremely hard to find, but averages around $400. Fortunately, however, the Piece Of Cheese Crop Top by icecream12 gives the same vibe at just $13.99. Pair it with black baggy pants (we recommend these by NDenim) and you’re good to go.
3. The Tweed Look
In an outfit that screams CHANEL, Jennie is draped in a beautiful tweed dress with frill accents. Layered with a black crop top, this look is classy and timeless.
With CHANEL dresses averaging thousands of dollars, achieving this look may seem impossible. Thankfully, the Tweed Girl Dress by Fiona is almost an exact dupe. Completing the outfit is easy: simply pair with a black turtleneck (we recommend the Long Turtleneck Ribbed Tee by Chuu) and the world’s your runway.
Korean fashion is constantly updating itself with new trends and styles. Despite this ever-changing landscape, turtlenecks are the most versatile piece in every K-fashion lover’s closet. Here, we’re bringing you the top 3 reasons why you should add a turtleneck to your cart:
They’re A Skirt’s Best Friend
From iconic K-pop girl group looks to the streets of Seoul, is there a more popular Korean women’s fashion item than the miniskirt? Available in any color, pattern, and fabric, it goes with everything and can be paired with nearly anything depending on your mood. Try pairing it with a turtleneck for an adorably youthful and girly look.
If you’re finding miniskirts to be too revealing or show too much skin, a turtleneck is a perfect solution. The full coverage up top helps contrast the amount of skin shown so you can feel comfortable.
Patterned turtlenecks — like stripes — bring even more attention up top.
They Dress Up Any Casual Look
Yes, even the most chill of dressers can rock a turtleneck effortlessly. If you’re a tee-and-jeans type of person, wearing a turtleneck can elevate your look for any occasion.
Want to take the look to the next level? Turtlenecks with unique necklines bring more pizzazz to your look without any additional effort.
They’re Perfect For Layering
Whether you choose to dress modestly or simply can’t stop wearing your summertime faves, layering a turtleneck underneath nearly anything is the perfect way to stay warm, covered, and stylish. Pair a brightly-colored turtleneck under a dark-colored dress (like cherrykoko’s Modern Vent Dress) for cool contrast or a dark, skintight turtleneck (like chuu’s Good Feeling Tee Shirt Vol 3) under a tailored blazer for a super chic, upscale vibe.
How do you feel about this cold-weather staple? Do you wear turtlenecks often or do you have reservations? Let us know!

Q: What inspires your fashion?
SA: Anything – trends, family, friends, music, and different cultures. I get inspired on the daily and wear whatever I’m into!
Q: What influences your fashion style most?
SA: My mood influences my fashion style the most. My style is very diverse and I definitely do not stick to one specific style or type of clothing. Depending on how I’m feeling, I’ll go for edgy, cute, or a classy look.
Q: What is your favorite item in your closet and why?
SA: My current favorite item in my closet is my brown leather backpack. Backpacks are an accessory that I do not normally gravitate towards but I’ve been digging the way it looks with my outfits lately.
Q: What is the best fashion investment you’ve ever made?
SA: I recently purchased a white clothing rack and it has honestly been so helpful when planning my outfits ahead of time. Would 100% recommend anyone to get a good quality rack for themselves!
Q: What inspired you to become an influencer
SA: One of my best friends is a blogger and suggested I start an Instagram account. I decided to give it a shot and I really enjoyed it. I love sharing my outfits and lifestyle with my followers and it’s truly motivating that I can be an inspiration and create an impact for others as well!

Chanel- La Mousse Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream-to-foam
Swiss Line – Watershock Purifying Toner
SKII – Facial Treatment Essence
Tony Moly – Master Lab Real Mask Sheets (Intensive Hydrating or Vitamin C Brightening)
It’s very extensive, but I quickly came to realize how important a proper skin care routine is. I think of skincare as an investment and for someone who was definitely not blessed with perfect skin, this routine has helped me achieve healthy and glowing skin.

Q: What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
SA: I’m obsessed with Korean variety shows, K-pop, and K-dramas 🙂 Ask me anything about Korean news and I’ll tell you all the juicy deets. 😋
Q: What’s your favorite thing about living in Toronto?
SA: I love the hustle of the city and the diverse people. You can really see that the people in Toronto are determined and working hard to reach their goals. The city inspires me to keep pushing and live a fast-paced life.
Q: Where are your go to hang out spots, eats, and cafes in Toronto?
SA: Currently, I am loving Lavelle and Constantine to brunch. My go to restaurants are Little Piggy for some quality K-BBQ and KAKA for good sushi. But, my absolute favorite place to hang and eat is Kensington Market. Here you’ll find the most delicious eats for cheap and is probably one of the most unique and fun spots in Toronto.Some of my favorite restaurants in Kensington Market are Rasta Pasta for the best Jamaican food and Seven Lives for the tastiest fish tacos!
Q: Where are your favorite travel destinations and why (both in the states and other countries)?
SA: For the States, I recently traveled to LA for the first time and fell in love with the city. It’s a mix of the hustle from Toronto and chill, laid-back vibes. I still can’t decide if I like Toronto or LA better though! For Europe, my favorite destinations are Rome and Venice, Italy. I was in awe of the beautiful architecture every second I was there and would 100% recommend everyone to visit. Also, the food was 10/10. For Asia, obviously Korea! I go to Korea every other year to visit family and friends and it’s probably my ultimate favorite travel destination. The food, culture, and people are all amazing and I never get tired of it. I’m missing it now just thinking about it. 🙂
Q: What are your travel essentials?
SA: Currently – Face masks, leather jacket, and resistant bands. Face masks are a must for me as my skin tends to suffer from the change in climates and location. My leather jacket pairs up with any outfit I wear so I always make sure to pack it. Lastly, I always pack my resistant bands so I can work out daily on the go and anywhere.
Q: What goals would you like to achieve before 2019?
SA: My main goal is to move my digital content creation to the next level. I want to continue to create unique and inspiring content for myself and my followers but kick it up a notch.

“Comfort is seriously key for me now, especially in the dead of winter when one . cannot be bothered to be dressed to the nines 24/7.“-Keri
This cropped boxy sweater with small white stitching details on the side add the perfect amount of design to turn this basic red sweater into something more interesting. The vibrant red is a statement in and of itself and will definitely draw attention to your outfit no matter how far you are!

Piece number one is for those lazy folks who want to stay warm and stylish without the discomfort. The minimalistic drawing in the center of the sweater will add an element of interest for any onlooker. I love this piece because I’ve never seen a design quite like this one and the color combination can be paired with any outfit.
You can never go wrong with a sophisticated trench coat. I think everyone needs one lying around for a day in town or a night out. You can always pair a trench coat on top of any look to turn your style into something a little more refined. Definitely a must have!
Piece number three is this red turtle neck sweater and it’s as soft as sweaters get. The cranberry color is perfect for any festivities coming up in the month of December and you don’t have to worry about being cold! I personally love the oversized look and this sweater does just that without completely overwhelming the wearers body.
My favorite piece from the five are these plaid pants. I’ve noticed that plaid is really in these days seeing that the pattern has shown up in almost every fashion store. Adding pattern into your outfit makes you look like you tried 100 times harder than you actually did and these pants do just that. They’re extremely comfortable and they look perfect with even just a plain white tee. If you haven’t picked up a pair of plaid pants this season, you’re already behind!
Our last piece was chosen in mind for all the upcoming holiday parties coming up! Wear this skirt for your Christmas dinner or even a New Years gathering and we guarantee that you’ll be the talk of the party. The material is flashy enough to draw attention to your outfit without coming off as a try hard. Pair this skirt with a nice top and some heels and you’re on your way!
