One of her most distinctive traits is her knack for revitalising timeless pieces with a modern twist. Whether she’s wearing a vintage-inspired tweed jacket from Gucci or rocking a Dickies 874 miniskirt paired with Timberland boots, she marries cutting-edge fashion with classic staples time and time again, showcasing her unparalleled flair for mixing and matching.

2. Eunchae of Le Sserafim

The youngest member of Le Sserafim swiftly emerged as a fashion icon with a style that’s equally as refreshing as the group’s music. Eunchae’s power lies in her ability to curate retro-inspired casual attire. At just 16 years old, she embodies a softer, more endearing aesthetic well beyond her years and perfectly in tune with South Korea’s “high teen” trend, reminiscent of the late 90s and early 2000s fashion. Her style also evokes a youthful nostalgia that has resonated with a new generation of fashion enthusiasts.

Among the myriad styles she’s explored, she frequently gravitates toward sweet and hyper-feminine looks, embodying a girlie image. Her signature soft look is a mesmerising fusion of dreamy pastel colours, whimsical prints and fanciful accessories – a style that encapsulates a sense of innocence and romance. Florals, sundresses, matching sets and plaids reign supreme in her wardrobe.
