[FEATURE+FASHION] Starcast: How To Wear Skinny Jeans – Learn it from the Girl Groups

Girl group the principle of fashion, has to must show off slim body figures no matter what kind of clothes they wear. They have to react fast to what is popular and have to lead the trend. Skinny jean is an It item in that aspect. Just wearing it highlights the beautiful body figure and it matches well with everything.

We learn from girl groups!!

The first is a way to wear the skinny jean. The styling of girl groups’ skinny jean is divided into 4 parts. ▶Being chic with a leather skinny jean, ▶ showing off charisma with a ripped skinny jean. ▶Look fantastically cool with a printed skinny jean, ▶also emphasize the natural charm with a basic skinny jean.

We took a close look into girl groups’ skinny jean styling and ways to apply.

◆ Leather skinny jean = The experts of skinny jean wears this often. The style varies depending on whether it is glossy or not. Being glossy can emphasize sexiness and having no gloss can emphasize chicness.

Best girl = When it comes to a leather skinny jean, it is of course Hyun-a. She loves wearing the leather skinny jean regardless of whether it is on the stage, the photo wall or the real way. It is an item that is hard to be pulled off but there is no such thing as embarrassment. She shows a perfect beauty of the body figure by making the leather skinny jean stick tight to her slim body. Because of that, the sexy charm is upgraded.

How to = It is not Hyun-a if it looks normal. She matches the leopard fur to a leather skinny jean for the most of the time. But, to avoid ‘Too much’ styling, she unifies the top and bottom entirely with black. She makes her legs look long~er by wearing kill hills that is made up of similar material as the leather skinny jean.

The point = It is a leopard fur jacket that covers the waist slightly. Because of the short length, it is really showing the slim waist. A brown fur and the leather skinny jean are matching well in a fancy way. She heightened the sexy atmosphere with gold short hair and thick smoky make-ups.

Ways to apply ① Add leather to the leather!

If fur is too burdensome, then leather + leather style also looks good. It can give off a chic vibe while reducing the burden. Victoria matched a leather skinny jean to a leather rider jacket at the airport. She made it look less boring by adding in white details to the jacket and shoes.

Ways to apply ② Use a long outer jacket!

If the waist and hip line that is revealed in between the leather skinny jean, try matching the long outer clothes. It is the method of styling that CL uses often. To a khaki long military jacket that is trimmed with fur, she wore a black skinny jean. To this, she added charisma with thick chain necklace and walker shoes.

Ways to apply ③ With basic coat, the burden ↓

It is a way to coordinate the leather skinny jean that everyone can pull off easily. In the case of Yuri, she wore a light khaki coat with a leather skinny jean. She chose a tight coat, hid her legs and emphasized the beauty of body figure. To this, she wore black shoes that have noticeable kill hills and aimed for a rock chic charm.

◆ Ripped skinny jean = A ripped skinny jean is still highly popular even in the cold winter season. The ripped skinny jean has 2 styles. It is either to rip it in a really bold way until the knees are revealed or just slightly rip it. Let’s try the punk look with the ripped jean alone.

The best = The one who lead the ripped skinny jean style is Dara. She loves it so much that she has ripped skinny jean for every color. She shows a twist in her image with wild ripped skinny jean as it contrasts with her pretty looks.

How to = She style it in a manly way with a ripped skinny jean such as wearing a white t-shirt with a skinny jean that only ripped slightly the knee part. To this, layer the blue plaid shirt with black cardigan. She added charisma with black buckle boots.

The point = The point was the detail in the skinny jean. Dara’s skinny jean is connected in a row with silver chains from thigh to knee. Just like someone who prefers styles that are full of individuality, even her ripped skinny jean was different.

# Music & Vocal – The rapid progress of the female musician resulted from the changing phases of time in 2000s.

Overall comment: The leading role in girl groups as they are centered on women. Using a differentiated strategy with the individuality of each member.

– Jo Hong Kyung, the representative of Voiceffect (JTBC ‘Hidden Singer’ vocal masters)

In their early years, 2NE1 made their debut with a nickname ‘Woman BIGBANG’ and back then, they showed a differentiated strategy through the strong colors of each member. Their music had easy melodies, which made people of all ages easily sing along and it is also the advantage that 2NE1 has.

If we take a look at the members, CL is someone in which her charm develops along with her age. CL, who shows the most power and energy in vocals, has a chic charm that is like a rebel. Also in the team, she has the most powerful vocal style.

Bom has a voice with unique individuality and a solid singing ability and is raising the level of completeness in terms of music. She is someone who has a unique voice but it looks like that she needs to make more effort to make her strengths certainly stand out. Dara is the oldest in the group and is definitely a mood maker but in terms of singing, it is slightly not enough. Just like CL, ‘The dancer’ Minzy is a member that appeals to people with fantastic singing ability. Since she has an enormous charm as she is able to dance, it would be better if she is much bold and daring in expressing her power.

-Bae Soon Tak, music critic (The writer of MBC radio ‘Bae Chul Soo’s Music Camp’)

The popular music itself has not much cases of being entirely described in relation to music. In most cases, the music decides its status based on the close relation it has with the society of a specific time period. This very fact is what makes 2NE1, a girl group with 4 members, important. Through their music, we can get a sense of a social atmosphere that changed after 2000s. Let’s think about their representative song ‘I Don’t Care’. The lyrics in the song convey the message ‘To a guy who is like a playboy, I don’t care if he leaves me’. Along with such a song and lyrics, 2NE1 made their fashion rather neutral and at times, chose to go with a powerful image.

To sort them in a much rough and wild way, it can be said that 2NE1 is a girl group who refused to give fantasies to men and instead, showed confident views that women has. This is never an exaggeration but is something that reflects the flow of time. Even globally, the one of the phenomenon in common was the rapid progress of women musicians and girl groups. It corresponds exactly with the level of changes in women rights that are rising as each year passes. The changes that first began with Madonna in 80’s are finally getting to shine with proper results and 2NE1 is the one who plays one of the main roles in it.

# Dance – Looks like the dance is wild and full of freedom but there is obvious beauty of moderation

Overall comment: CL’s charisma is blended with cuteness. Her confidence that comes from trust in herself is the biggest weapon.

– Ha Hwi Dong, Mnet ‘Dancing 9 Season1 MVP B-Boy steak

To me, the most important part of a performance is the intro part of the song and in the case of CL, her ability to start the song with her unique charisma blended with cuteness stands out. Dara looks like she will fit better with adorable dance moves from songs such as ‘Do you love me’. It is a song that gives a feeling that it has nicely pulled off cute dance moves that matches the most with Dara. Out of all the members, the one who dances in a comfortable way and shows her relaxed facial expression as a bonus is of course Minzy. Bom, who is in charge of vocal, does not get help from other members in her part but in other parts, her existence can be felt relatively strong and a lot.

– The singer Kim Wan Sun

I think to a singer, dancing is almost like a singer putting on a make-up and putting on the outfit. I view it as one of the ways to express the song and music in much fancier way. Of course, it would be better to dance like a professional dancer but it is hard to sing while showing that kind of dance moves. Also, I personally have a conservative way thinking that the main part is not supposed to be interrupted whatsoever. In that part, 2NE1’s dance cleverly does not interrupt the song but 2NE1 is still expressing their music in an individualized way. They look wild and full of freedom but there is a beauty of moderation in facial expressions and in the attitudes of the members. However, it looks like the confidence and self-esteem coming from working together with the staff members, who shows strong faith in the talents that 2NE1 has, is 2NE1’s powerful weapon that is stronger than all the dance moves with brilliant techniques.

# Fashion –From fresh chameleon to mature women

Overall comment: Street fashion + Black hip hop look added with luxurious mood.

– Designer Chae Gyu In

Since their debut, 2NE1 gave off a feeling that is like a chameleon. In outfits, if Tokyo and London street fashion and black hip hop look played the main role up till now, it looks like there is a ‘high end collection (Luxurious outfit)’ added to it recently. In previous albums, 2NE1 have been showing images that are like a bright young girl. But now, it could be seen little by little that 2NE1 is making an attempt to give changes to their images as fully grown-up women

Especially, in their newly released song ‘Missing You’, CL exposing her entire body looks like a way to actively trying to portray the characteristics of mature women. In the music video of ‘Missing You’, the hat with broad visor and the smoking look is an item that fits with the trend of ‘Restoring the old’ in 1970~80’s. It looks like that these outfits interpreted the ‘Restoring the old’ looks of the time with a modern sentiment. The concept that ‘Missing You’ gives a feeling like seeing a new version of the song ‘Lonely’, which was released in 2011. It is evaluated that in terms of sincerity, ‘Lonely’ is a step ahead. In ‘Missing You’, shows the charms of women and arouses curiosity through diverse and luxurious style of outfit such as a spangled skirt. It looks like right now is a time in which the attempt to break the frame by trying new things and by leaping to the next level is needed.

Starcast-Article-5

It looks like CL has the most choices for outfits out of 2NE1. She often surprises the crowd with her unconventional styles but her sense of matching the accessories or props that others did not try before is different from others. In real life, she shows skilled abilities in coming up with various styles of outfits such as being funky, chic or dressing like a man. Bom has a beautiful body figures so no matter whether it is on the stage or in daily life, she often wears micro miniskirts, skirts or shorts. Rather than sticking to the styles that emphasizes the leg, I think it would be better if she tries to much more various and bold styles.

Starcast-Article-6

Dara used to wear the most hip fashion out of all the members but recently, she has been showing daily-life look fashion that does not stand out by using fashion props but she still shows her sense. In contrast, when she is on the stage, she frequently enjoys elegant styles that show the beauty of woman. In the clothes that Dara wears in her daily life, it is most always a skinny jean with a belt. It looks like she showed her individuality nicely with her unique way of highlighting the fashion. Minzy is a member who shows most little change in style since her debut until now. She wears a jacket and matched with simple pants most of the time and it looks like that she chose to go with stable fashion and does not try anything bold.

Starcast-Article-7

# Facial features: Full of talents and a successful career
-Jo Gyu Moon, assistant professor at culture and arts graduate school Kyung-gi University, name and fortune research center

CL: First, when looking at her forehead, it is pretty neat and shiny so it is a good forehead. Forehead represents the fortune from earlier years of life to age 30 and also shows the fortune in the career. CL has good fortune in earlier years of her life so she has parents luck and also career luck. She has the facial features that tell that she will be successful with her own job. Eyebrows represent the fortune for siblings and her eyebrows are soft and clear so it is reminded of a crescent moon. When looking at this fact in regards to the relationships with the members, it means that the members in 2NE1 have a nice teamwork and is able to form good relationships. Her lips are thick and mouth is pointing upwards. This kind of lips means popularity and a precious fate. But, one thing bad among all the good is the fact that the nostrils can be slightly seen when looking at the face from the front. The meaning it carries is that even when you earn a lot of money, it is possible to have unnecessary spending from not managing the money well so it is necessary to be careful.

Bom:  If the forehead represents the fortune in earlier years in life, then the eyes and the nose is the fortune in mid-age and the mouth, both upper chin and lower chin, and the lowest chin represents the fortune in the end of life. Judging from the eyes and nose that represents the fortune in mid-age, her eyes have a clear distinction between black and white parts, meaning being healthy and wise and also being successful in career. The nose that represents wealth is also neat and stretched out with power so it looks like she will be earning a lot of money. To point out a part to be improved, her upper lips looks thinner than her lower lips so it would be good if she make her upper lips thick and red when putting on make-ups.

Starcast-Article-

Dara: The shape of her face is oval and she is a typical beauty type. When dividing the face into three parts of eyes, nose, lips and both the upper chin and lower chin and the lowest chin, it has a 1:1:1 proportion so it can be said that she has a precious face. When looking at her forehead, she can be successful in terms of career and looking at the eyes, which show the health, she is showing good health. The nose, which represents wealth, is chubby so it is a nose that is pretty and will bring luck. However, a beauty is popular among people of opposite sex and it can be considered as a double-bladed sword.

Minzy: The end of her both of her eyes is slightly pointing upwards. It looks like her eyes make her unique individuality and charisma meaningful. Her eyes show that she is talented and skilled and these kinds of eyes are from a person is full of confidence. The part in between the eyes and the eyebrows are called ‘Jeontaekgoong’, which is related to realty. For Minzy, this part is formed relatively wide so it could be good for her to invest in realty. It looks like the part right below her eyes is rather plain but it looks like that Minzy will have fortune when she makes this part thicker and brighter and putting on make-ups.
