Not only they can free our minds and spirit, but they also paint us a future, something to look forward to, something full of hope, love, and endless possibilities. With that in mind, we welcome you to our K-Fashion Face-Off: Who Wore It Better – September issue!

Shuhua ((G)I-DLE) vs Mimi (OH MY GIRL)
Have you ever been wondered why you can’t find one style that could offer you enough drama and fun to act as a complete style overhaul in a single piece? Puffy-sleeve tops may just be your savior!
(G)I-DLE‘s Shuhua and OH MY GIRL‘s Mimi both wore this cropped ruffle puffy-sleeve blouse from Sculptor. Both looks are spot on. We are only giving this point to Mimi because we love her play of colors!
If you feel adventurous with your styling, try a pair of plaid overall and a retro-styled long vest in plaid for a cool layered fall look.
Jennie (BLACKPINK) vs Jessica Jung
Retro items have been many celebrities’ favorite styling pieces for the past few seasons, from dad sneakers to mom jeans. And now we are digging even deeper…
This checked jacket from BLANC & ECLARE looks like something from your granny’s wardrobe and the clash it creates with modern styling will make you speechless! Both fashion influencers Jennie and Jessica Jung favored this jacket in their recent stylings.
For us, this is an easy win for Jennie, and we have two reasons. One is the color choice for her ensemble is spot on. And secondly, the oversized tee, hairband, and retro jacket style-clash created a rebellious neighborhood sweetheart vibe which we really dig.
Hyoyeon vs Sandara Park
Both stylings look fashionably dramatic and empowering. It is a tie in our opinion.
Lee Sung-Kyung vs Park Min-Young
As the cold season approaches, we see more and more celebrities and fashion bloggers showcasing their cardigan looks. Park Min-Young styled her lime-colored cardigan from 3.1 Phillip Lim with a gorgeous floral skirt, while Lee Sung-Kyung chose the green picot version and styled it with a dark-colored bottom.
Both celebrities nailed their looks. Which color would style well with your current wardrobe? Something bright and lively or dark and calm?
Park Eun-Bin vs Lee Young-Ae
Floral dresses are great when it comes to spirit-lifting in the cold seasons, as they remind us that Spring and Summer are not that far ahead. Both actresses Park Eun-B in and Lee Young-Ae picked this lovely black and white sequin floral dress from Self-Portrait for attending events.
Lee Young-Ae added lace details and completed her ensemble with black socks and black pumps, which we think is too much for the eye and lost the refreshing feeling of the dress itself in the process.
Our point goes to Park Eun-Bin.
Joy (RED VELVET) vs Jisoo (BLACKPINK)
We absolutely in love with this Balmain tweet chain short dress! It is luxurious, it is feminine, and it is elegant. It is everything you need to be a modern-day princess…
And yes, on that note, you may already know that our vote goes to Jisoo, as we can probably all agree that she is the embodiment of a modern-day princess. Everything about her look in the picture is spot on, her hair, her makeup, and the carefully selected accessories.
Joy’s look is fun and daring. We do love the color clash and the contrast with the leather boots, but Jisoo’s look is a tough one to beat.
Joy (RED VELVET) vs Lee Hi
If you are looking for a retro-inspired funky knit sweater, this Marc Jacobs x Magda Archer intarsia sweater is definitely your best bet! It is not possible to have a bad mood when you put this baby on, and we can see both Joy and Lee Hi agreed with us.
Lee Hi styled it with classic high waist blue jeans, while Joy took an extra step and paired it with dark blue retro jeans in floral print.
Point goes to Joy as it is a delightful styling to take note from.
Sunmi vs Go Joon-Hee vs Lee Bo-Young
This retro-inspired floral mini dress from Givenchy is a statement-making piece as it has both volume and character. If you are looking to stand out from the crowd without too much effort, this would be a great choice.
Go Joon-Hee wore it with a pair of pastel ankle boots, which is kind of an extension from the flowers on the dress. Lee Bo-Young on the other hand chose to create a bit of a contrast with her red boots, while Sunmi preferred black boots from an edgier approach.
We love all three looks. This is also a great example of how versatile this dress can be. Just with different accessories, it can project very different vibes. Which one is your favorite?
