Kpop star Sunmi has had quite the prolific career, first debuting as a member of girl group Wonder Girls (yep, of Nobody fame!) in 2007 then going on to pursue a successful solo stint with the recent release of Gashina, her first one-woman comeback in three years. There's a ton more to this certified sensation than a glittering string of hits, though—a scroll through her Instagram shows that she's got this effortless way with clothes we're green with envy of. Here, check out seven examples of her brand of casual cool! It's as if she plucked the pieces from your closet, tossed them together oh-so-nonchalantly, then strutted out looking like a million bucks. Styling tips ahead!
This is possibly one of the simplest outfits ever, but she makes it look so good. The keys are in a) that chic, tousled bedhead, and b) those interesting, sculptural heels.
A t-shirt and pleated skirt combo gets an upgrade via the season's favored flavors: a cute soda logo and some bright color blocking.
How oh how does she make something so comfy look so cool? We're eyeing those dotted pajama bottoms and that chan-link belt bag strapped across her chest.
Sunmi's a tad bit more dressed up here, but never does she lose her covetable air of I-don't-care. She punctuates her otherwise prim OOTD with an Acne tote that's chock full of personality.
Denim shorts, jean jacket, black tee, boots. Done, and done well.
Here's an idea: Twist a blazer around your waist and call it a makeshift skirt. Copping.
Any ensemble could use a bucket hat's street-style touch! Pair with attitude and you're good to go.
