Though Lee Dam never pays too much attention to how she looks, she has a good fashion sense for having a mother who works as an editor for a fashion magazine. She prefers wearing a casual outfit but chooses edgy items with feminine touch on special occasions. Hyeri shared some fashion ideas for Lee Dam in My Roommate is a Gumino on her Youtube channel, saying “Dam’s outfit is fashionable yet it is easygoing enough for any college student to go for the look.” Some of Lee Dam’s unique styles as a college student in her 20’s are listed below.

The everyday fashion of Lee Dam, born in 1999, is based on casual wear. She is in her mint sweatshirt with colorful print and logo on it when Shin Woo Yeo, who she lives with under a contract, cooks her a meal. It suits her straightforward and confident personality. It is a product of ICEBISCUIT, a brand inspired by street style.

A sweater cardigan that everyone may have in their closet shows her lively personality. An item from her campus look, this argyle-patterned sweater cardigan has a color contrast of red and navy with a cropped length highlighting her unique personality. She matched a mini crossbody bag to brighten up the mood and gave off the cozy feeling with the knit sweater. The cardigan is from The Open Product, a designer brand popular among the MZ generation.

This is a cropped blazer that has a sleek silhouette. Lee Dam prefers to wear casual outfits to feminine clothes. But this time, she chose a loose-fitted cropped blazer. Paired with a T-shirt and jeans, it completes a girlish and lively look that is popular among college students these days. The blazer is from a contemporary brand LINE edition. The model on the right is wearing a medium-length skirt of the same fabric to complete a contrasting chic look.

She matches a pair of skinny jeans with this off-shoulder jacket that exposes her shoulder line with a classic mini purse to complete her elegant yet vibrant style. In particular, her choice of a simple and small choker adds a trendy vibe to the look. The jacket from Faith Connection
