Jennie Kim Fashion has become quite a hit not only in Korea but also globally. Her style sense is something that we adore and love the most. Whether or not we openly admit it, we all have our fashion favorites. Case in point: Jennie Kim from Blackpink and her love of Chanel. Even when she’s enjoying some downtime, Jennie will opt for pieces by the revered French house.
We’re not talking the maison’s classic tweed jackets or prized quilted handbags, but more its logo crop-tops and insignia knitwear, which she pairs with baggy jeans or sportswear.
Hailing from Seoul, South Korea, Jennie — who forms the chart-topping girl band BLACKPINK with bandmates Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé — shot to K-pop stardom instantaneously when her group debuted in 2016.
Not only does the quartet appeal to millions of fans around the world for their empowering and genre-bending music, but the members are also loved for their effortlessly cool outfits and individual style — no matter in their music videos, onstage or off-duty.
Five of Jennie Kim Fashion wardrobe essentials
In honor of the release of the group’s Netflix documentary BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky, we’ve put together a style guide breaking down five of Jennie’s wardrobe essentials. Take a look at some of her go-to fashion items below.
Whether cropped or oversized, fitted or slouchy, Jennie can often be seen stepping out in a button-up cardigan. Recreate her look by pairing your favorite knit with a tank top and some relaxed bottoms.
2. Light Wash Denim
Light wash jeans, especially ones with a baggy silhouette, are perhaps one of the K-pop star’s most frequently used wardrobe staples. Style them with your coziest sweater and some simple white sneakers for a Jennie-approved ‘fit.
3. Statement Sunglasses
BLINKs would know just how much Jennie loves her sunglasses. In fact, the singer even launched her own eyewear collaboration with Korean brand Gentle Monster earlier this year. From clear acetate frames to black rectangular styles, channel Jennie’s off-duty looks by throwing on some statement-making sunnies.
4. Tailored Trousers
Besides denim, Jennie is also a huge fan of versatile tailored trousers. Wear these pants with a crisp white shirt, untucked, or with a lightweight knit top depending on your style and mood.
5. Chanel Accessories
A house ambassador of Chanel, the 24-year-old artist can often be spotted in the Parisian luxury brand’s clothing, jewelry and other accessories. For those on a budget, you can look to designer resale platforms such as Vestiaire Collective for pre-loved options and secondhand alternatives.

Here, see Miss Vogue’s edit of Jennie’s cutest Chanel moments.
23 July 2018:Jennie walked alongside her bandmate Lisa — and Jisoo popping up in the background — wearing a vintage Chanel cropped-top and baggy black trousers.
1 October 2018:Coco Chanel’s famous mirrored staircase is almost as iconic as her CC insignia. Naturally, Jennie’s been there and got the Chanel cardigan.
10 February 2019:With the help of a spring/summer 2019 Chanel cardigan, earrings and a pair of cuffs, Jennie took a basic background and transformed it into a photoshoot-worthy location.
5 March 2019:Where better for Jennie to plan her next-season wardrobe than sitting front row at the Chanel show? To arrive at the house’s autumn/winter 2019 snow-covered set, she wore a perfectly coordinated winter white dress.
28 March 2019:Through her relationship with the house, Jennie has also cultivated bonds with other Chanel ambassadors. When Pharrell hosted the opening of Chanel’s first flagship boutique in Seoul, it was the K-Pop musician he called upon to perform a mini set, dressed in Chanel – of course.
24 April 2019:Lounging with bandmate Lisa, Jennie took a simple sundress to new heights with her Chanel-printed style. Blackout shades necessary.
16 May 2019:When you’re one of the most famous K-Pop stars in the world, you sometimes need that piece of clothing to help you go a little under the radar. Jennie’s just happens to be a Chanel baseball cap.
17 May 2019:What’s so cute about Jennie’s love of Chanel is that it transcends the glam dresses and iconic handbags to also embrace simpler pieces, like this knit beanie.
28 May 2019:Photographed backstage at a Blackpink show, Jennie blended both sides of her life together in wearing a spring/summer 2019 Chanel bodysuit and belt to perform on stage with her band members.
11 July 2019:How to elevate a cute ‘n’ sweet ensemble in one stylish sweep? Just add a Chanel chain bag.
29 September 2019:We imagine that Jennie had this logo knit jumper bookmarked from the moment she saw it walking down the catwalk at the autumn/winter 2019 show the previous March. The cosy mix of the fluffy texture must have made it the perfect piece to wear on a long-haul flight.
30 September 2019:Jennie posed against a billboard of one of Blackpink’s latest magazine covers wearing an oversized CC-logo jacket and classic chain-strap rucksack.
3 October 2019:Travelling straight from the Chanel spring/summer 2020 show to take tea at Coco Chanel’s former home with Korean-American model and fellow house favourite, Soo Joo Park, Jennie got to experience the inner workings of the maison like very few are ever privy to.
7 October 2019:A few days later, Jennie took to Instagram to share a selection of images of her sitting pretty inside Mademoiselle Chanel’s Parisian home wearing a lime-green cardigan and printed trousers. We think Coco would approve.
9 July 2019:Recognise this Chanel number? Of course you do. Lily-Rose Depp wore it in January 2019 to attend a film event in Paris, with Jennie choosing it for an on-stage performance a few months later. The dress, however, made its actual debut on the sandy shore of the spring/summer 2019 show set.
Jennie Kim fashion is all about the right choices, colour coordination and beautiful picks. So, let’s steal some outfits from her wardrobe and don’t forget to add dazzling smile like her.
