Looking for style inspiration? Look no further! Take a page out of these female idols’ books and learn how to dress fashionably no matter the occasion.
From music, to accessories, and even books, many of the things we like and enjoy are influenced by our favorite celebrities. It’s no surprise then, that so many trends in Korea originate from idols, and fashion is no exception.
We’ve compiled a list of 10 female idols with impeccable style to follow on Instagram for inspiration.
These idols not only post beautiful selfies of themselves, but also countless OOTDs that we can all learn from!
1. Jennie (Blackpink)
Of course, we can never exclude fashion darling - Jennie of Blackpink.
Known for having a luxurious image, Jennie has worked with high-end luxury brands such as Chanel and Gentle Monster. She features them on her Instagram feed pretty often too.
At the same time, Jennie also posts plenty of photos of her in dressed down, casual outfits.
Monochrome fashion is popular among idols, and it seems Jennie is no stranger to the trend too!
She looks absolutely comfortable in her white T-shirt and long black pants, paired with a black bucket hat—an idol essential—and a pair of white sneakers.
2. Lisa (Blackpink)
Also from Blackpink, Lisa is undoubtedly one of the top dancers among korean idols. Like Jennie, she has her fair share of luxury brand deals too, looking a million dollars in many of her photos.
However, perhaps due to her background in hip hop dancing, there is a clear street-style influence in many of her casual everyday outfits.
3. Solar (MAMAMOO)
Solar might be somewhat new to the Instagram scene—she only made her first post back in December 2020! But she has quickly proven to be a fashionista, and her feed is full of OOTDs.
This kpop queen style is more feminine, often wearing dresses and heels as well as accessorizing with necklaces and earrings.
She is also a fan of handbags, featuring bags of various shapes and sizes in her photos.
In particular, this lime green handbag complements the various shades of blue and cream on her dress perfectly, the colours reminiscent of clear blue seas with a slight green tinge.
Many people may be wary of bright-coloured handbags as they are difficult to pair, but Solar shows that being bold can pay off! If you’re a fan of bright patterns, her Instagram feed will surely inspire you to be bold as well.
Alice Martha Eldar bag
If you’re hesitant to go all-out just yet, you can always start out by completing your outfit with a bold point accessory, such as a brighter color handbag.
Each Alice Martha bag comes in many colors, such as the Eldar bag, which is available in five different colors.
4. Yeri (Red Velvet)
Red Velvet’s Yeri is a bit of a free spirit, and it shows in her fashion style as well!
She is an extremely versatile fashionista, and it shows in her Instagram feed! They feature her in a whole spectrum of outfits, from fancy dinner looks to much more laid back casual looks.
No matter what kind of style inspiration you’re looking for, it’s likely that you’ll find an outfit on Yeri’s feed that you love.
Yeri has worn items from Covernat on more than one occasion, such as their sweatshirt (pictured above).
While sweatshirts may not be very practical for day-to-day wear in Singapore, Covernat also has a collection of T-shirts, which Yeri has also worn on occasion.
5. Joy (Red Velvet)
Befitting her name, Joy is known for being a ray of sunshine who brings joy to others.
She has a sweet, feminine vibe that shines through no matter which clothes she wears. We just love her confidence!
Look, even when dressed in only sweatshirt and jeans, Joy gives off a sweet and approachable girl-next-door vibe!
The pretty pink color makes her look more radiant, while remaining sweet at the same time. The white platform sneakers also match her outfit perfectly.
Get this pink sweatshirt from Opwee for the girl next door look and pair it with the iconic Fila disruptor 2 shoes in white pink!
Chunky platform shoes are catching on as a trend in Singapore as well, with Fila being one of the most well-known sneakers brands!
6. Doyeon (Weki Meki)
With her tall height and striking features, you would be forgiven for mistaking Doyeon as a model and not an idol.
Perhaps due to her model-like features and proportions, clothes just fit amazingly on her!
Doyeon’s Instagram style shows the importance of fit, and that even basic simple outfits can look amazing if they fit well, or are paired with the right accessories.

The way the blue classic Champion logo on her sweatshirt matches the blue colour of her nails just shows how attentive Doyeon is to the small details. It’s this little detail that really makes her all-white outfit interesting!
7. YooA (Oh My Girl)
YooA is well-known for her doll-like visuals, but that doesn’t mean she’s only capable of pulling off a single fashion style.
Jeans, skirts, dresses, blouses, T-shirts—YooA has worn them all, and look amazing in all of them!
She looks adorable no matter what she wears, but we definitely love the girlier style of her style.
From the red dress, to the red hair pins, to the red accent on her sneakers, YooA ensures that the color scheme of her outfit is cohesive.
The shape of the dress is very flattering as well, cinched in slightly at the waist and short enough to show off her legs.
While YooA may not be on the taller side, pairing a shorter dress with a white low-top sneakers elongates her legs and gives her the illusion of height.
8. Chaeyeon (DIA)
Like Doyeon, Chaeyeon is also a former I.O.I member.
Known for her pretty features, Chaeyeon sure knows how to dress well—regardless of whether she is dressing up or dressing down.
She also seems to be a fan of comfort, with sweatshirts, T-shirts, and sneakers being a staple in her wardrobe. She often keeps her outfits simple as well, proving that there is some truth to the statement ‘less is more’.
If you would like to embrace the minimalistic but cute aesthetic like Chaeyeon, Ambler has a whole collection of teddy bear tees and sweatshirts.
Pair it with a pair of comfy sweatpants and a cute scrunchie like Chaeyeon, and this would be the perfect outfit to wear to dance practice!
9. Naeun (APink)
Legend has it, a pair of leggings sold out just because Naeun wore them once!
But Naeun’s Instagram feed proves that she is a queen of more than just leggings.
While she may be better known for her athleisure looks, she is no stranger to dressing up either.
Her figure looks as amazing in maxi dresses as it does in leggings, and Naeun boldly pairs this dress with a pair of sturdy all-white boots, and a classic leather handbag. It’s an odd combination for anyone else, but it sure works for her!
While many people may think that dresses are only suitable for formal events, pairing them with platform boots makes the outfit appropriate for casual get-togethers as well.

She is unafraid to experiment with different clothing items and styles, which makes her the perfect source of fashion inspiration.
