Seoul-based fashion label Expired Girl has garnered support from the likes of Dua Lipa, beabadoobee, Kateri Dion, and BLACKPINK’s Jennie among many other celebrities and musicians since its debut in 2019. The brand has incorporated retro-inspired silhouettes with a contemporary twist throughout its swimwear, blouses, dresses, skirts, and more in a playful nod to the Y2K resurgence.
There is a dress for every occasion at Expired Girl, from the latest dress styles in seductive patterns to must-have designs that draw inspiration from classic silhouettes in mini, midi, and maxi lengths. The Freya Sequin Dress is outfitted in sequin jersey fabric with strap beads detail along the hem and a lace-up open back. In collaboration with contemporary artist Jisoo Seo, the brand also has a two-way mesh dress that arrives in two flattering prints and lengths. Departing from body-hugging materials, the Iris Dress boasts flower motifs in addition to lace trimming points on the sleeves and chest.
This past summer, the label released the third iteration of its “Splash” collection, which included bikini sets, baby tees, and camisoles with lace trim, all perfect for a day at the beach. In addition to other chic pieces, the bikinis surface in the label’s characteristic “Sea Motive.” Each set includes a triangular bikini top and bottoms with tie strings and inner lining, and they come in three vibrant colors: orange, blue, and pink.
Tops such as the Kai Lace Top are constructed from a vintage-like cotton eyelet jacquard fabric with lace trimming details similar to that seen across other Y2K-inspired pieces. It can be paired with the coordinating lace skirt or a bikini bottom for a flattering ensemble. Meanwhile, pieces like the Lena Top take a sustainable approach to fashion, being made from bio-material jersey fabric and a crop that sits above the waist. Our favorite set from Expired Girl is the matching Elyse Sequin jacket and shirt, which takes on a lime green color scheme and has starfish point button embellishments and a chiffon-lining finish.
