K-pop fans are clamoring upon knowing that IVE thas been wearing their old stage outfits for 1 year. Performing in stages from Korea to Germany, the group, nonetheless, was given old outfits from their promotional period for “LOVE DIVE”. Things got worse when it is revealed that their company reused IVE’s old debut outfits for the group’s Japanese promotional activities.

While fans thought the situation would improve with some feedback, IVE’s appearance on a Japanese show came as a shock. The girls were wearing flashy and excessively ornate outfits which were salvaged solely by the idols’ visuals.

Apart from their clothing, IVE’s makeup is also a subject of heated debate on social media. Compared to their past youthful looks, the group now appears more pale, with Wonyoung being a victim of enormous and unsophisticated eyebrows.

Starting from a smaller company, the Starship girl group is not presented with opportunities to wear designer’s clothing like other groups from bigger companies. Nevertheless, the group is still able to balance their outfit’s less appealing design with their proportionate and tall figures. Unfortunately, not only are the group wearing non-designer’s outfits, IVE also suffers from lack of variety and care.

Despite their visuals and talents, IVE is falling back compared to other groups partially because of their diverse outfits and appealing looks. Hopefully, their stylists will listen to current public opinions and make timely adjustments for the group’s image and future.
