BlackPink’s Punk Princess Looks from “Lovesick Girls”
2020 has truly been BlackPink’s year: collaborating with big names like Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and Cardi B, dropping not one but three music videos ahead of their first full album, and breaking plenty of streaming records left and right.
I’ve been admiring the group’s diverse fashion repertoire through their MV releases, from dramatic and blinged-out in How You Like That to pastel-hued sweetness in Ice Cream, and I was worried about whether the album’s main track, Lovesick Girls, would deliver – both musically and sartorially. Thankfully, my worries were for naught. Fun, edgy, wearable and highly nostalgic of the early 2000s, the girls’ punk-inspired looks actually ended up being my fave of their three concepts.
As a fan of wearing dark colors, I found the girls’ color palette visually appealing right off the bat. Despite the muted shades, the girls keep things interesting with patterns, layering and jewelry. Several key pieces that reoccur in the music video are graphic tees, wide elastic belts, fishnet tights and knee-high boots.
