Jennie's Style Evolution: From Chanel Poster Girl to Jacquemus Chic

BLACKPINK's Jennie has become nothing short of a style icon ever since the K-pop band made its debut in 2016. Since the band's formation, Jennie has worked with the likes of Gentle Monster and Jacquemus and starred in multiple Chanel and Calvin Klein campaigns. As a result, we've seen an immense style transformation as she's gone from a K-pop star to an all-round fashion favorite.

Over the years, we've seen Jennie sport many preppy Chanel dresses and skirts with matching accessories, often paired with platform court heels, eventually opting for more subtle trouser suits and sleek black gowns. Following the pandemic, we got more of a glimpse of Jennie's off-duty style, often characterized by pleated high-waisted trousers, plaid cropped shirts and Margiela backpacks alongside double denim fits and a laidback, layered approach to styling.

As Jennie began to attend more Fashion Week showcases and brand events, the K-pop star's style shied away from coordinated sets and separates and instead began to exude more of a subtle luxury approach to dressing. With more of a focus on tailoring and silhouettes, Jennie finally entered her Jacquemus era, attending the brand's stellar "Le Raphia" show at the end of 2022.
