Aesthetics, which was initially a branch of philosophy concerned with the questions of beauty and the appreciation of the same, has now taken on a more generic meaning suited to the times. However, it still relates to appearance, visuals, and how one presents oneself. In casual discussion, there are a number of “aesthetics” that define an individual’s style. These include, for instance, cottage core, dark academia, fairy, normcore, artsy and more.
Here are 5 female K-Pop idols who can rock both the soft girl and the Insta baddie aesthetic!
Jennie’s duality is truly unbelievable, and it reflects in two of her most dominant aesthetics: the soft girl who’s quite the angel and the baddie who is in a league of her own. We don’t know how she does it, but it makes her that much more appealing.

Something about Wonyoung is just so charming that it is hard not to adore her.

It’s all in the eyes, for Wonyoung.
Amber’s Instagram is a must-follow account that truly gives us a glimpse of her as a person as well as an artist. The best part about it is that it is candid but also aesthetically pleasing.
