Blackpink took the world by storm when their first debut studio album titled “The Album” was released on October 2, this year. With their unique style and voices and songs featuring artists like Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and Cardi B, Blackpink’s album went straight to second place on the Billboard 200 chart; making it the highest-charting album by an all-female group since 2008. Their avant-garde and trendy fashion looks have even earned each of the girls ambassadorships with big brand names like Celine, Yves Saint Laurent, and even Christian Dior. The girl group is one of many South Korean artists to carry the popularity of K-pop music and culture abroad and some netizens are dedicated to finding references or dupes for every single piece of clothing or accessory worn by the members.

With this style you can easily go with any color or pattern and don’t necessarily have to match your outfit. Our best picks:

Staying away from the typical blacks and whites and opting for earthy colors and boxy shapes can bring a back-to-school feel to your fall outfit. Here are some of the best we’ve found:
Rest assured; it’s not all about shoulder and small-sized bags this fall. Lisa is one of the many Korean celebs going back to the big shoulder/crossbody bag trend while maintaining earthy “fall-ish” tones and leather materials. Her Celine 16 bag in “tan” is perfect for chilly outings; after all we will need to fit more more than just our keys, phone and mask during “the new normal”. Here are some options:
