For starters, her first solo single On The Ground topped YouTube’s ‘#1 on trending’ list within a week of its release. The explosive music video not just hooks you with its anthemic melody, it also shows Park embodying her feminine-meets-rebellious fashion sense with a wardrobe comprising flirty short dresses, fur coats and boots.
That aesthetic extends to her off-duty style. Park was spotted last week in Seoul dressed in a preppy getup that includes a blazer, mini skirt, a button-down shirt and loosened tie, evoking the cool vibes of the Gossip Girl clan (we’re talking the reboot version with Emily Alyn Lind and Jordan Alexander).

Park was definitely on to something as the uniform-inspired trend is making a comeback as demonstrated by the recent goth-inspired Fall/Winter ’21 show at Dior and the rise of TikTok subculture Dark Academia that has been gaining traction online among the Gen-Z crowd.
