Debuting at the age of 15 in 2007 with the mini album Lost and Found, IU, or Lee Ji-eun, is not an unknown name for those who love K-pop.
Apart from excelling as a solo singer and songwriter, IU has also managed to perform with shows such as Dream High (2011), Moon Lover: Scarlet Heart Ryeo (2016) and Hotel del Luna (2019) under her belt. In more recent news, the Nation’s little sister will grace the red carpets of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival for the first time as part of the cast of the upcoming South Korean film Brokers.
Loved by many for her classic, feminine style, here are some fashion tips we learned from the starlet.
Channel your inner geek chic by sporting a crisp white shirt with lapels. But to avoid looking like you’re wearing a school uniform, look for unique lapel details like the oversized ones IU is sporting here.
Bare your shoulders
From off-the-shoulder tops to off-the-shoulder dresses, baring your shoulders is a great way to show off some skin and look cool at the same time.
Seen here at a Gucci event in Seoul, IU’s polished outfit consisted of a maroon dress accented with a black leather top and boots. The neutral outfit was then accentuated with an off-white handbag which added a touch of brightness.
Pearls have a bad reputation for being old-fashioned and old-fashioned. However, as IU demonstrates here, all you need to do is pick the right pearl necklace and complement it with other accessories to tap into her sartorial sensibilities.
While lightweight knits aren’t an instinctive choice for us tropical climate dwellers, these soft jumpers and sweaters add a nice visual contrast to any outfit. Plus, lightweight knits are great for frigid office conditions.
Complete it all with a blazer
Need to quickly energize a casual outfit? Take inspiration from IU’s books and throw on a blazer to quickly elevate the look of any daytime smart casual event.
Fine and delicate
There’s always a time and a place for dainty little jewelry, especially when you’re wearing an outfit filled with colorful and statement floral prints. Choose ones that will flatter your skin tone.
Bow and ribbon details add a soft, youthful feminine energy whether you have it on your clothes or tied around a ponytail.
cork it up
From basketball caps to berets, IU frequently sports various types of headwear as accessories. Not only do they hide messy hair that you haven’t had time to style, but they also add visual interest to the whole thing.
Want to amp up an outfit without suffocating yourself with a blazer? Then, like IU, grab a vest instead. A waistcoat would add some dapper points without the weight of a jacket weighing you down or warming you up.
