These Korean stars are proof that cardigans are a must-have in any girl's closet!

The rainy season has arrived, so what better way to cozy it up than by wearing a cardigan? K-drama and K-pop fans often see this ubiquitous closet staple on their fave stars and idols, which isn't surprising given its versatility as a layering piece.

Need a bit more convincing on why it’s a must-cop item? Below, we’ve rounded up the different styles of cardigan beloved by Korean celebs. Take style lessons on how to wear a cardigan from Bae Suzy, IU, and more!

LOOK: Dainty Cardigans Worn By Korean Celebs

1. Cardigan with Piping

A style maven that she is, BLACKPINK’s Jennie Kim never disappoints when it comes to her outfits. Her sophisticated taste in clothing is evident even in her most casual OOTDs, just like this pink Chanel cardigan with black piping on the edges, which she wore for a stroll while enjoying Seoul’s blooming cherry blossoms! So cute!

2. Front Tie Cardigan

Singles Inferno star Jiyeon Shin was always seen wearing the prettiest summery OOTDs during her reality show stint, but the 25-year-old can also pull off the cutest looks for cooler climates. Case in point: her purple front-tie cardigan that she threw over an otherwise monochromatic black ‘fit.

3. Printed Cardigan

If fun and playful prints are your thing, then take style cues from Red Velvet’s Seulgi! Known for her cute yet casual way of dressing, the idol gravitates toward a trusty cardigan. We’re particularly obsessed with this one she has on—just look at those mushrooms and flowers embroidered on it!

4. Cropped Cardigan

A cropped cardigan is the perfect choice if you’re aiming for a midriff-baring look! Just take it from idol and actress Joy who donned a periwinkle blue cardi over a matching crop top in the same hue. To avoid exposing too much, she teamed her cardigan with high-waisted pants for a subtle show of skin.

5. Ribbed Cardigan

Texture is always a welcome addition to any outfit, which IU schooled us on via her neutral-colored ribbed cardigan! The actress tucked it into a pair of denim jeans to create a more streamlined silhouette, which just goes to show that basic pieces make for a polished OOTD!

6. Chunky Knit Cardigan

A cardigan collection wouldn’t be complete without a chunky knit one! Their soft material makes them a cozy choice to pull over during chilly days as seen here on TWICE member Dahyun, who opted for a baggy cream-colored knit for a relaxing day spent lounging.

7. Long Cardigan

You might be wondering if long cardigans are still worth purchasing in the age of teeny tiny crop tops, but here to convince you is Jisoo! The multi-hyphenate is making a case for these lengthy pieces by stylishly pairing her long beige cardigan with a striped shirt and tennis skirt, resulting in a preppy OOTD that's guaranteed to turn heads!jisoo korean fashion k-fashion cardigan k-style kpop idol korean actress kdrama

8. Puff-sleeved Cardigan

If you want something a bit more statement-making versus a regular cardigan, then one with puffed sleeves is the way to go! Puffy sleeves are especially flattering on those with pear body types to create the illusion of broader shoulders, thus giving an hourglass-like figure. Here, IVE’s Wonyoung is a vision in a black and white Prada cardigan teamed with a beret and a pair of denim jeans!

9. Gingham Cardigan

When going for a print-on-print look, we suggest opting for complementing patterns that won't clash with each other. Say, for example, gingham in varying sizes, as seen in Suzy Baes chic OOTD! Even the colors are perfectly in sync.

10. Two-Toned Cardigan

Another way to veer away from the conventional is with a two-toned cardigan! Rosé from BLACKPINK has the perfect example, featuring a neutral cardigan with a light grey bodice and black billowy sleeves that gave her ‘fit that extra edgy twist! We love how the whole look perfectly suits the idol’s grunge aesthetic, too.
