BlackPink x Selena Gomez - How To Steal The K-Pop Group’s Killer Style
Attention all BlackPink fans, the group are back and they’ve got a new recruit: Selena Gomez. After weeks of online speculation and Instagram teasers for a new single, Selena finally confirmed the news that she is and the K-pop group had joined forces on its upcoming release, which is set to be out on August 28th.
BlackPink had made headlines earlier this year in June, where after a year’s break (which is rare in the K-pop world) they kicked off the new era with the single “How You Like That”. The song immediately broke numerous records, including most-viewed music video on the platform in 24 hours and most-viewed music video by a K-pop act in 24 hours.
Though we may not know what to expect from BlackPink’s upcoming release with Selena sonically, it’s safe to say we’re sure we’ll be getting killer fashion looks. As we wait in eager anticipation for the 28th, we thought we’d break down some of BlackPink’s most memorable fashion looks below and how you can make them your own at home.
(1) LookThe All That Glitters Look
In addition to their award-winning music, BlackPink is not afraid to pack any punches when it comes to their on-stage outfits, which often include glitter, glitter and well, more glitter. From embroidered mesh and thigh-skimming sequins to bedazzled suits and sparkly crop tops, there’s very little that they wear that doesn’t come adorned. Of course, we don’t all have packed out shows to attend too, but there are plenty of ways us mere mortals can make sequins work for every day. Try teaming a glistening skirt with an oversized sweatshirt, or layering a sequin party dress with a white shirt for a look that is as perfect for after-dark soirées as it is for daytime too.
(2) Denim x Sporty Style
As much as they love an OTT outfit, the members of BlackPink are also big fans of a sporty, athletic look. Proving that activewear isn’t just for the gym, the girls are often spotted rocking striped track pants, bomber jackets and sneakers, paired with all kinds of denim. Not ones to shy away from head-to-toe lycra or the Canadian tuxedo, the group prove that creating a chic and sporty outfit is simpler than you’d think.
(3)Pink on Pink
Once upon a time, pink was dismissed (unfairly) as the exclusive colour palette of a six-year-old girl’s wardrobe. Thankfully, times have since moved on, and nowadays the colour has long shrugged off its girly connotations. BlackPink too, has fully made the shade their own, proving that regardless of age or personal style, you too can rock the bright hue. Try playing with different shades from pastels to bright, pops of fuschia and mix in neutral accessories like whites, tans and camels.
(4) All White , All Right!
Wearing all black is easy and takes little thought, but all white? Spills aside, it’s a lot tougher to pull off - unless you’re a member of BlackPink that is. In their hit video ‘How You Like That’ the girl group proved that there is a myriad of ways you can style an all-white ensemble. From a 90s-inspired outfit (featuring a Chanel-emblazoned tank top) to utilitarian and sports-chic, the girls made a firm case for becoming a fashion purist. We’re in.
