These Asian Celebs Have The Most Stylish Off-Duty Looks

Fashionable on and off-screen

Celebrities are known for leading glamorous, jet-setting lifestyles and they receive worldwide attention wherever they go, be it strutting down the red carpet at an awards show or touring around the globe to promote their latest movie or album. This usually means that they have a glam squad composed of the best hairdressers, makeup maestros and fashion stylists on standby to ensure that they're camera-ready all the time. 

But beyond those star-studded moments, celebrities are also revealing their natural, authentic selves on Instagram, where they provide fans with a "behind-the-scenes" look into their day-to-day lives. This has unintentionally caused fans to become particularly invested in the off-duty outfits worn by their favourite celebrities — from identifying the designer bags which these celebs carry on the daily to the rising, local designers to which they're wearing during their trip to the airport. 

With this, we’ve uncovered the leading females in Asia with the most fashionable, off-duty looks. Did your favourite star make the cut? Read on to find out.

Sandara Park, Singer & Rapper



Sandara’s off-duty style is hypebae personified. The vocalist, sub-rapper and visual of former K-Pop girl band 2NE1 rocks the latest cult streetwear pieces with finesse. While Sandara looks picture-perfect in her glossy, high-octane outfits as she graces the fashion shows by Vivienne Westwood and Off-White, we reckon that she shines the brightest in her off-duty looks. Her go-to fashion essentials of late have been a pair of limited-edition Nike Air Jordan 1 sneakers, a beanie from Balenciaga or Adidas, and a show-stopping printed puffer jacket. 

Fun fact: She was amongst the first, exclusive group of celebrities in the world to receive a highly-coveted pair of Nike Air Force 1 "Para-noise” sneakers designed by rapper G-DRAGON. There’s no doubt that this girl has some serious clout in the streetwear and entertainment circuit. 

How To Steal Her Style



Nailing the low-key yet high-impact streetwear look à la Sandara is easy — start by keeping your eyes peeled on the latest drops from Dover Street Market, a multi-label store which curates the best, statement-making pieces that streetwear stalwarts should have in their wardrobes. 

A much more affordable option in achieving Sandara's look would be to stock up on roomy, wardrobe essentials such as long-sleeved sweaters and boyfriend jeans from UNIQLO. Then, splurge on classic sneakers in a variety of colour ways. You can easily switch up your look with fun socks and colourful shoes laces. Details matter. 

Nittha Jirayungyurn, Actress & Model



Nittha is a gorgeous actress and model from Thailand who successfully turned heads after rubbing shoulders with Pharrell Williams at the Chanel Haute Couture 2020 show. She looks heavenly in a backless Reem Acra gown, however we’re paying much closer attention to her ability in mixing casual-cool everyday pieces with the latest designer items. Her off-duty outfits are simple yet stylish: they typically involve a pair of flattering denim jeans, a well-fitted top and a lust-worthy luxury purse. 

How To Steal Her Style 



Nittha always looks fresh-faced and comfortable in her own skin — she never tries too hard and we believe that’s her secret to looking chic all the time. It’s important to pay attention to your skin, your body and your crowning glory before anything else. You can also save up for eye-catching bags in the meantime, as they will help to add a pop of colour to your neutral get-ups. 

If you’re feeling apprehensive about spending a few thousand dollars on a purse from the get-go, consider loaning pieces from Style Theory instead and give them a test drive before you make your major purchase. The accessories which you invest in should fit seamlessly with your lifestyle and wardrobe. 

Nicole Andersson, TV Host & Fashion Influencer 



As the host of reality TV makeover series Style Me Now, Philippines-born Nicole Andersson knows a thing or two about looking stylish on and off-camera. On set, she’s elegantly dressed in chic, work-appropriate pieces such as cowl-neck blouses and high-waisted trousers, whereas in her daily ensembles, she prefers to be unpredictable, fun and bold. 

The former actress pulls off tricky patterns and feminine frocks like a pro, and she often keeps her fans and followers guessing about the emerging style trends that she’ll attempt next. We’d like to think that her wardrobe is a rainbow wonderland filled with quirky accessories and colourful separates.  

How To Steal Her Style



As mentioned, Nicole’s style is often unpredictable so we can’t prescribe you with a tried-and-true formula to achieving her look. But that’s also the beauty of her enviable sense of style — your only task will be to keep an open mind when attempting the latest fashion trends. Flared leather pants, ruched dresses and velvet slip-ons are no longer intimidating and are instead exciting and oh-so-fun. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. 

Check out popular multi-label online site, Revolve for the latest, fashion-forward pieces. Interior-designer-turned-fashion-influencer Aimee Song’s label Song of Style has been receiving a lot of positive reviews lately, as with brands LoveShackFancy and Lovers+Friends


Nana Ouyang, Cellist & Actress 



Gen Z celeb Nana Ouyang may be a few months shy of turning 20 years old, however she’s already making waves in the industry for her stylish clothing choices. The Berklee College of Music graduate is a VOGUE China cover girl and has fronted campaigns for Converse, Maje Paris and Miu Miu, to name a few. Nana's the embodiment of the cosy-girl aesthetic, where ankle-length coats, pastels sweaters and the occasional '90s-inspired tee are part of her style repertoire.  

How To Steal Her Style



Curl up to softer colour palettes and welcome boyish cuts with open arms. Nana tends to inject a hint of androgyny in her outfits with a cap or a plaid shirt to keep things from looking too girly. Consider shopping at Spanish fashion label Mango, which offers dreamy yet practical essentials at wallet-friendly prices. There’s also Lazy Oaf (via ASOS), a cute British streetwear label that’s popular for its cheeky, oversized sweater dresses and playful graphic tees.
