4 Streetwear Trends Male Korean Idols Pulled Off
Trendy does not equal boring. Read on to find out how some male idols turn trends into their own unique style.
Many idols like to wear oversized tops as they are both trendy and comfortable. There are many ways to style an oversized top, and the following idols do it perfectly.
Not only is Baekhyun rocking a comfy oversized sweatshirt from Nerdy, he’s also wearing yellow-tinted sunglasses to match his sweatshirt. Baekhyun’s outfit couldn’t be simpler, but yet it’s this thoughtful pairing of pieces that makes the look really pop!
If you want to get ready for summer, Nerdy also has a collection of bright oversized t-shirts Shop for it at StyleupK that can work to create a similar look!
By pairing a simple oversized white t-shirt with shorts, DK pulls off the perfect summer outfit! Like Baekhyun, he also seems to pay attention to the small details, matching the striped pattern of his shorts with striped socks.
Renjun (NCT Dream)
Some people might think that oversized clothes make you look sloppy, but Renjun proves that to be untrue! His oversized long-sleeved polo is half-tucked into his black jeans, making him look effortlessly stylish.
The thought of someone dressing entirely in black may seem intimidating, but these idols prove that all-black outfits can look classy and sophisticated.
Despite also being dark, Rowoon’s coat—which is a shade lighter than the rest of his outfit—manages to catch people’s attention immediately.
Dressed entirely in the same shade of black, San’s outfit is reminiscent of a suit, making him look very put-together. However, he completes the outfit with a ballcap, giving the whole look a more casual vibe.
Yeonjun does a great job of layering different materials, from the lace top he has on underneath his button up shirt, to the leather belt he’s wearing to accentuate his waist, playing around with textures to make his all-black outfit stand out.
An all-black ensemble would not be complete without a pair of black shoes. Brands such as MLB and 23.65 have black sneakers that look super cool and chic.
Yay or nay? Bucket hats have elicited polarising responses from the general public for years now, but it’s clear that they’re a must-have item for idols!
It’s no secret that BTS has partnered with FILA, even releasing their own line of clothes with the brand, and what better way to promote the brand than by wearing their clothes? The matching logos on Jin’s shirt and hat are a nice touch, making his whole outfit look even more cohesive.
Cha Eunwoo (ASTRO)
While many idols may choose to wear bucket hats to hide their faces, Cha Eunwoo looks absolutely adorable with his whole face on show while wearing this dark denim bucket hat.
We’re not really sure why the members of Seventeen showed up to the airport all wearing bucket hats, but it’s definitely a look! This also really showcases the versatility of bucket hats, and how they can be paired with pretty much almost any type of outfit.
While crossbody bags may be seen as women’s bags, these male idols prove that style truly has no gender by rocking various crossbody and shoulder bags.
Hyungwon (MONSTA X)
Hyungwon proves that you can never go wrong with a black crossbody bag. Not only does his bag look big enough to fit all of his belongings with ease, it also matches his outfit perfectly!
The gold accents on The8’s shoulder bag complement the gold-framed sunglasses he has on, adding just the right touch of sophistication and elegance to his otherwise casual outfit. The medium-sized bag is also big enough to fit all of his essentials.
As most girls would know, the size of your bag is very important! It’s not easy to find a bag that’s both cute and able to fit all of your belongings. Donkie’s pineapple bag collection is a great size—big enough to fit a good number of items, but not too bulky either.
Crossbody bags can be as edgy as they are elegant, and Yangyang completes his streetwear look with a small bag without downplaying the slight grungy vibe he seems to be going for.
Trends can act as a guide to help you put together the perfect outfit, but ultimately it is up to each person to incorporate the trend into their personal style. Even within a trend, different brands offer a variety of different designs.
Additionally, by mixing and matching trends—maybe an all-black outfit with an oversized t-shirt, or completing your comfy oversized outfit with a practical bag or hat—you can come up with a unique outfit that truly fits you.
