There’s no doubt Lee Sung Kyung is one of the most successful models who have made the transition to acting. It’s not surprising that she has caught people’s attention in all the dramas she has appeared in – whether as a leading lady or a supporting character. Whether you were rooting for her or itching to slap her in the face, there’s no denying that Lee Sung Kyung’s outfits were always on-point. We show you some of her best style moments on TV and how you can get the look!
Oh So Nyeo in It’s Okay That’s Love
Known as Lee Sung Kyung’s breakout role, Oh Seo Nyo is a cheeky, rebellious high school student. Her attitude is seen in her outfits and the way she does her hair. For our younger readers, although dyed hair isn’t allowed in schools, you should be able to get away with a cute headband or some simple, school-appropriate accessories to channel the look. Can’t risk getting reprimanded for not following the dress code!
For everyone else who doesn’t have to adhere to a stricter dress code, you might want to try a reddish dip-dye that suits your features. You can also try layering rings and bracelets like what Seo Nyo does in the drama. When wearing stackable earrings, remember that you don’t really have to match your hands. Don’t be afraid to play with textures, widths, and combinations until you find one that works for you. Try looking for rings with special detail like a small stone or crystal to add variation. Most importantly, have fun and make sure the rings fit you perfectly!
Kang Yi Sol in Queen’s Flower
Lee plays Kang Yi Sol, who lived an impoverished but happy and loving life in Taiwan. She later on grew up as a determined, strong-willed woman. In the drama, Yi Sol’s wardrobe ranges from playful and youthful, to ladylike and sophisticated. No matter the changes, she always keeps her outfits as simple and straightforward as possible. The key to this look is to put together basic pieces and not to over-accessorize. When wearing prints, you can go for a fun, but not too overpowering design. This look is for those who want maximum impact with the least effort.
Baek In Ha in Cheese in the Trap
We may have all wanted to strangle the scheming Baek In Ha or drag her by the hair ala Angel Locsin at some point, but there was no denying that her fabulous designer outfits were always on-point. She makes sure to wear statement accessories and trendy pieces to elevate her OOTDs. Get this look by pairing your simple basics with the most extra pieces possible. Some ideas for you can include a fluffy hat, printed sportswear, a black leather fringe skirt, a cat sunglasses, and anything that sparkles. The point is to be as over-the-top as you can get without looking tacky. Complete the look with a killer pair of heels. Channel your inner In Ha (minus the catty behavior) when you’re heading to a party or a fun night out with your friends.
Kim Bok Joo in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
We long-time fans like to think that Kim Bok Joo is the role that catapulted Lee Sung Kyung to mainstream superstardom. Unlike the previous roles mentioned in this list, Bok Joo’s style is definitely more comfortable and low-key. After all, who has time to think about clothes when you’re too busy juggling school, weightlifting training, your social life, and — gasp — adulting?! Bok Joo prefers practical pieces such as comfy sportswear, hoodies, jackets, and sneakers. With athleisure being on-trend again, you can get away with incorporating sports pieces into your regular fashion wardrobe. Just make sure all your athleisure pieces are clean and in good condition.
Jin Seo Woo in Doctors
If Bok Joo’s style was chill and relatable, then Seo Woo’s style is the one to emulate at work. She is definitely #PowerdressingGoals as she radiates HBIC energy while looking chic and feminine. Pair a button-up shirt with a blazer to give your outfit a more formal feel and channel your inner boss. For more casual days, you can go for more feminine-looking pieces such as crepe blouses and slip dresses. Just because you’re at work doesn’t mean you have to stick to neutrals. Don’t be afraid to throw in some color into your office wardrobe!
Choi Michaela in About Time
We may have been treated to both Lee Sung Kyung’s singing and acting chops in this drama, but it was also worth taking note of all her outfits. Michaela is a lot gentler and more mild-mannered than any of the other characters Lee Sung Kyung portrayed in the past. This is why Michaela favors pastel colors and dainty, girly details such as flowy skirts, ruffles, and lace. Although not all of us are aspiring musical actors, you can also wear this look to a first date. Michaela is your perfect inspiration for a look that’s chic and girly, yet casual and comfortable.
Just as Lee Sung Kyung isn’t afraid to experiment with fashion, don’t be afraid to mix and match to see what works for you. What matters is that you are comfortable with what you’re wearing and you’ll be able to move freely.
