Miss A"s Suzy shows off her shorter locks in her latest ad campaign for clothing brand MLB. And in typical MLB fashion, Suzy gets to rock trendy, sporty pieces which has framed Suzy"s "cool girl" status.
Deviating from the usual feminine or sexy looks, Suzy goes for a more sport aura in these photos-and we"re loving every outfit!
And now to our favorite OOTD-worthy mixes.
In this photo, Suzy keeps it clean and minimal with a monotone, black and white number, with additional hints of blue, green, and yellow. The outfit looks very comfortable and trendy, and we see some staple pieces which you should have in your close by now: white pullover, chunky gold bangles, and jogger pants.
This is another favorite mostly because it looks so put-together and we can change some pieces to make it look more formal than casual. The striped bandage looks great on Suzy, and will look great on petite girls as well since vertical stripes can give the illusion of height. Yankees fans will also love this baseball top on Suzy. Now, how do put a more feminine touch to this amazing look? Trade those white sneakers for black and gold high heels. Nevertheless, this look is great as it is.
Joggers are very in and trendy this year, and Suzy knows how to pull it off! This pinstripe jogger pants work well to accentuate Suzy"s long toned legs, and the orange pullover adds a pop of color to the mostly neutral pallet in this collection.
This look is actually more girly than the rest, but it still has that "sporty girl" feel. A pleated skirt is a great addition to your wardrobe for spring. Also, a bomber jacket is also a must for this colder spring nights.
Watch out for more of Suzy"s MLB looks!

The creator of an anti-cafe for Vibe singer Yoon Min Soos 6-year-old son Yoon Hoo has decided to take the hate webpage down, following a backlash from K-pop fans and stars alike.The creator of an anti-cafe for Vibe singer Yoon Min Soo's 6-year-old son Yoon Hoo has decided to take the hate webpage down, following a backlash from K-pop fans and stars alike.
The six-year-old hating website administrator told Xports News on Tuesday that the backlash took him by surprise.
"I made the cafe without much thought," he said.
"But it became a big issue and hit the media. It was even number one on the searched terms chart so I was really shocked."
The Yoon Hoo anti-cafe's creator said that it was considering his own feelings if people were spreading hatred about his child that allowed him to understand what the fuss was about.
"I thought, if I was a father with children...if my child was in grade school and had [an anti-fan cafe in his name], then my heart would be in pain," he said.
"Because of that, I decided to shut down the cafe."
The Yoon Hoo hating netizen offered a belated apology to the 6-year-old.
"It's late but I want to apologize to Yoon Hoo and his family from the bottom of my heart," he said.
The anti-cafe creator says he hopes the child didn't know about the existence of his webpage.
"I hope Yoon Hoo doesn't know about this situation," he said. "I apologize once again."
Yoon Hoo became an overnight child star after appearing with his pop star father on the South Korean TV variety show "Daddy Where Are You Going?"
"Dad, Where Are You Going?" actor Lee Jong Hyuk took to Twitter on Monday to speak out about the anti-cafe for the 6-year-old.
"A Yoon Hoo anti-cafe for Yoon Hoo, who is like an angel?" Lee wrote.
"Cafe owner, don't appear anywhere near me. Yoon Min Soo, ignore it all."
The tweet started a movement among fans and stars, informally titled "I Love Yoon Hoo."
"I don't want the young Yoon Hoo to get hurt," D-Unit's Jin posted on the bands me2day page. "Yoon Hoo, I love you."
"I Love Yoon Hoo," Alex from Clazziquai tweeted. "Please grow into a handsome and healthy man!"
Super Junior's Kangin got downright possessive about Yoon Min Soo's son.
"Yoon Hoo is mine," the star tweeted on Tuesday. "[Fans] let's help Yoon Hoo so he doesn't get hurt."

Lee Hyoris boyfriend Lee Sang Soon may not be exactly who she pictures as her ideal man, but he suits her just fine. Lee Hyoris boyfriend Lee Sang Soon may not be exactly who she pictures as her ideal man, but he suits her just fine.Lee Hyori's boyfriend Lee Sang Soon may not be exactly who she pictures as her ideal man, but he suits her just fine.
On the Wednesday episode of the South Korean television show "Radio Star," Lee opened up about the differences between her ideal man and the one that she loves.
Co-host Yoon Jong Shin brought up the singer's past remarks that she likes a man who "secretly puts his credit card into my wallet" or has "a sexy spinal cord," and asked if that is true of Lee Sang Soon.
"He steals my card and his spinal cord is curved like an S line because he plays the guitar, that's why it is sexy," Lee said.
But when it came to the subject of whether Lee Sang Soon is Lee Hyori's perfect match, her response changed.
When the singer was asked 'what is Lee Sang Soon to Lee Hyori?' her answer was clear.
"A man that I want to be my last," she said.
Prompting the inevitable question: will the two Lees get married?
Not likely, if the singer feels the same way as she did at actor Uhm Tae Woong's wedding back in January.
Responding to a reporter's question at the ceremony, which took place at the five star Conrad Hotel on Seoul's Yeoui Island, Hyori brushed off the idea of any imminent marriage plans.
"Even the President-elect [Park Geun Hye] is not married just yet, so I don't feel the need to marry fast," she said.
The comments caused a backlash from some K-pop fans, who felt it was inappropriate for the star to bring the South Korean president into the conversation, according to the website Soompi.
The following day, Lee took to Twitter to respond to the fan backlash.
"You can have a great life even if you don't get married," she tweeted.
"Why is it that female celebrities get questioned about marriage all the time as soon as they turn 30? I was so sick of those questions that I was just joking around a little."
And with Lee Hyori and Lee Sang Soon appearing together on the TV program "Thank You" Friday night, maybe the marriage question will come up.
The show will also feature singer-turned-restaurateur Lee Ji Yeon, and Ye Eun of the group Wonder Girls, according to the Korea Star Daily.

While K-Pop fever continues to catch on in the world, Taiwanese singer Jay Chou has urged China to resist succumbing to both Gangnam Style and the “Korean wave”.
On December 2, Jay Chou attended Baidou’s 10th anniversary awards ceremony in Beijing where the artist won a number of awards including Best Male Artist, a leader award and popularity award.
According to reports from Taiwanese media afterwards, Jay Chou spoke at the awards ceremony saying, “Gangnam Style is funny but Chinese music is much more tremendous.”
He then urged his fellow musicians to stop “chasing after Hallyu” and for all celebrities to refrain from doing Gangnam Style.
Needless to say, his comments brought about a flurry of divided opinions with some agreeing that more attention and focus should be put on the music of Mandarin speaking artists while others criticized his comments as putting nationalistic labels on the universal language of music.
Jay Chou himself received some criticism for his new appearance at the awards ceremony with his blonde-dyed hair and his new, fitter physique, with many pointing out his looks seemed to be copying the current popular looks and trends of other K-Pop idol stars.
Jay Chou, for his part, dismissed those allegations.

PSY expressed, “I gotta teach him face to face, not like this [video]. This is really hard by video you know. I gotta teach him step by step, and it’s too complicated with the video. So please invite me once, so that I can teach you.”
