It's no secret that we love K-dramas, and nothing gets us hooked on a new series faster than a fashionable leading lady. Mind you, though—they don't only look good when they're on cam. Even off-screen, these naturally stylish girls have a knack for putting together the most effortlessly chic outfits using basic closet must-haves!
Want to score some sartorial tips on how to level up your casual OOTDs? Below, get schooled by your favorite K-drama leading ladies:
1. Oh Yeon Seo
The boxy silhouette of an oversized plain white T-shirt has a chic effortless vibe to it, as seen on Oh Yeon Seo (A Korean Odyssey, Love with Flaws). Team it with blue denim jeans for the ultimate comfort on a lazy day, then throw on a pair of clear aviator glasses to take your OOTD up a notch!
2. Bae Suzy
The Start-Up star's Instagram page is brimming with fashionable OOTDs, and this denim-on-denim ensemble is definitely one of our faves. Note how she wore a denim jacket on its own as a top instead of layering it over a shirt.
3. Jung So Min
We really love this edgy look on Jung So Min (Playful Kiss, Because This Is My First Life), who easily spruced up her white shirt and denim skirt combo by throwing on a leather jacket. An easy-peasy way to look instantly cool!
4. Lee Sung Kyung
If you're going for a less casual approach, take your cue from Lee Sung Kyung (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo, Dr. Romantic 2) and wear your white tee with a pair of black wide-legged trousers. Sling a designer bag over your shoulder and call it a day!
5. Park Shin Hye
The Memories of the Alhambra star is no stranger to glam outfits, but she looks so effortlessly stylish in her casual looks, too! Case in point: This OOTD of hers aboard a yacht, featuring black skinny jeans with raw hems, chunky sneakers, and an oversized denim jacket.
6. Son Ye Jin
The Crash Landing on You star admits that her iconic character as Yoon Se-ri puts way more effort into dressing up compared to her in real life, but we think Son Ye Jin's laidback style has its own charm as well. Just take a look at how she styled her striped sweater and jeans combo with a chambray shirt wrapped around her waist. Oh, and we totally love those sunglasses too!
7. Kim Go Eun
Kim Go Eun's style is anything but boring. While the Goblin and The King: Eternal Monarch leading lady tends to lean towards casual pieces, she keeps her looks interesting with a play on textures. Just like how she did here with her black corduroy pants paired with sherpa-collared denim jacket!
8. Kim Yong Ji
Did you know that Kim Yong Ji has been to the Philippines before? Yup! During her stay in Amanpulo, the TKEM star donned a loose black pullover and a pair of boxy denim shorts—a welcome change from the usual body-hugging beach OOTDs!
9. Park Min Young
On a trip to Hawaii, Park Min Young (What's Wrong with Secretary Kim, Her Private Life) knocked her OOTD out of the park with a simple white button-down shirt and a pair of denim cutoffs. To up the ante, the actress didn't forget to accessorize and opted for a black and white fedora hat to complete her resort look!
10. Park So Dam
The Parasite and Record of Youth actress has a super cute style which you can easily recreate. Here, Park So Dam dons the foolproof graphic tee and denim jeans combo then instantly polishes up her look with a gray blazer. Quite clever!
