How the Go Go Squid Outfits Compliment the Character's Ages

go go squid couple
With the drama Go Go Squid! 亲爱的热爱的 steadily heating up the small screens this summer, viewers have also taken notice of the couple's looks in the show epecially Tong Nian who is cute and adorable in every shot. You never know right, I mean, if we can’t get ourselves a handsome and broody Han Shangyan like Tong Nian, we can always grab some inspiration from her wardrobe which might just help us land our very own Shangyan!

To cop Tong Nian’s bubbly looks for summer, it’s all about the ice cream shades and bright pastel colour combinations to emphasize her youthful and energetic character. Think lavender shirts with pale bottoms, monochromatic whites, bubble gum pink oversized hoodies and dresses, and my personal favourite - butter yellow paired with light wash jeans. Tong Nian also seems to have a fondness for accessorizing with bandanas – tied around her neck or in her hair as a headband, bandanas are totally back in fashion for summer 2019 so it’s definitely a look that’s very easy to recreate!

Now it's quite obvious that the show’s producers and costume team went through great lengths to make the actors appear younger and older than they are in real life. Yang Zi and Li Xian are of similar ages being both in their twenties but they are playing characters who are 19 and in their 30's respectively. So for Yang Zi, a wee wardrobe “makeYOUNGER” was necessary since she’s years older than her 19 year old character!  Luckily for her though, her baby face and big big doe eyes go a long way to make her appear younger, doesn’t it?

Li Xian too who's just a year older than Yang Zi in real life also got a Han Shangyan makeover to counter his youthful looking face. It’s out with the brights and colours for him though since he needs to appear in his 30's as required by the story. The result? Endless iterations of broody and monotonous blacks to go with his older and more mature character.

  2. In my opinion, yang zi's make up to thick for 19 old character, making her like mature girl instead, fortunately i like how she potrayed tong nian with her acting, otherwise this drama will be disaster.

  3. I see everyone complaining on Viki about her outfits all the time, and it's super annoying. I swear those people leaving those terrible comments about her clothes are uncultured swines, tbh. Literally her clothing style is very expected for a Chinese drama. It matches her innocent, quirky character. I think her make up is fine. Sometimes heavy makeup is needed to be seen on camera. I think it's appropriate for her character's age as kids these day at that age do wear quite a bit of "heavy" makeup. I think YZ's closet does justice to her character.

  4. I also don't understand her outfits/costumes. She is pretty but with the disaster clothing...really hides her beauty.

  6. I agree with those who say her make up was too much. Nineteen year-olds don't go around wearing lash extensions, they don't have the money for it, and especially for someone who's double-majoring in a graduate program! Who has the time? Lol, but her wardrobe is cute and goes well with her character.

  7. The style matches her character, but they can be more creative. It doesn't have to be hoodies again and again. She kept wearing the same style again and again also. She also kept wearing those ugly GRAY socks or stocking. Yes, I agree that the makeup is too much for her character. It's the stylist's fault.

  9. I didnt notice the makeup, tho i dont really like the hair but i saw her long hair pic for this and i think short hair is better. But some of those clothes are ugly, sorry. That white jacket shirt thing is just off, i like the color scheme but the outfit doesnt compliment her. Hoodies and stuffs are fine but then long skirts and long socks??
