LOONA is a 12-person K pop girl group founded by Blockberry Creative. The Korean name of the group (이달 의 소녀) literally means "girl of the month", with members representing each month of the year. The girls also each have an official animal, color and fruit. In one of the most unique debut rollouts of all time, every member of LOONA released a solo track before the official group debut in 2018. The solo releases before the debut created a large following for the group and showed that they are all exceptionally talented!
LOONAs Chuu, real name Kim Ji-woo, debuted in 2017 with her solo song Heart Attack and she definitely "took my heart" and many other fans too. Although it could represent December, its sweet and girlish charm is definitely as fresh as spring. Your fashion choice is also perfect for spring, as she always chooses comfortable and easy-to-wear items that you can combine with any item in your closet. In addition, LOONA achieved its first victory in the music show at the M Countdown last week. So that requires a celebration!
Can you count how many penguins are in Chuu's outfit?
Asymmetric polo shirt, Pleated mini skirt & White leatherette sneakers
Starting with Chuu's official color, I styled her in a peach polo shirt. She is often seen in this preppy staple, and this piece would not be missing in her dressing room on and off the stage. The classic polo has been redesigned with a unique asymmetrical button panel accented with colorful, mismatched buttons. This makes it a minimal statement piece that is perfect for a casual outfit.
Chuu says she would choose skirts over pants every day, so I chose a white pleated mini skirt for her. It fits perfectly with the oversized cut of the polo, emphasizes the waist and creates a flattering silhouette. For her shoes, white leather sneakers with toe caps made of imitation suede continue the tennis-inspired style and ensure structural interest.
Penguin patch, backpack, Hairpin & Socks
Orbits (LOONA fans) know that every member has an official animal. If you couldn't guess when you look at Chuu's adorable face, her official animal is the penguin, and it would be a thorn in my side not to include this element in her outfit!
From a reserved hairpin to a huge backpack on your face, I have integrated as many penguins into your clothes as possible! I also put an embroidered patch on her polo top for a personal touch. Mustard yellow socks (of course with allover mini penguins) round off the look by adding a splash of color to the otherwise neutral palette.
