It’s been a decade since Girls’ Generation burst into the K-Pop scene and won our hearts with their catchy songs, upbeat dance moves, and amazing fashion sense. As for us, we were particularly drawn in by Yoona’s fun and feminine aesthetic. Cleo.com.sg shares how you can recreate the K-Pop star’s looks.


Casual



To recreate this look, just borrow an old long-sleeved shirt from your beau to layer over a white top. For bottoms, we recommend a pair of distressed jeans or cute shorts.



Daring



For an edgier, sexier vibe, slip into your skinniest jeans and a cropped denim shirt to emphasise your curves.

Sweet



Show off your delicate side with a pastel-coloured off-shoulder top paired with a pair of hoop earrings. Complete the look with a rosy shade of blush and lippie.
