    15 Ji-Yoon Outfits From Netflix's "The Chair" That'll Give Dark Academia A Run For Its Money

    It's like Killing Eve in the style department, but minus the murder!

    Netflix's The Chair has such a distinct quirky, small-town liberal arts college feel to it, and one of the most prominent ways we get a taste of this is through Ji-Yoon's subtly brilliant wardrobe.

    Throughout the series, we see the wonderful Sandra Oh in power blazers, crisp dress shirts, and, of course, her signature gray duffle coat. Ahead, we've rounded up her best outfits and break down how they highlight her character's development throughout the show!

    1. Sandra Oh in a double-breasted blazer means BUSINESS.

    2. This is really the same fit sans the power blazer, but the pointed collars on the crisp white dress and high-waisted tan bottom are incredibly smart-looking!

    3. A greige Fair Isle sweater is a basic in the best way!

    13. The red boatneck tee here almost feels like a symbol, like Ji-Yoon knows that the jig is up and she no longer wants to kiss up to the Pembroke administration.
