I know that almost every post has been kpop and fashion related lately but, I’m just in a mood right now so I hope you like it!
So, contrary to the title I actually didn’t get to shop in an idol’s closet but if you’re an idol reading this hit me up. Instead, this is a wishlist of things that I would steal if I happened to be best friends with some of the biggest names in Kpop right now. Also, all of these are from boy groups because, as you know if you’ve been following me for a while, I only stan boy groups. Plus, I just like that aesthetic a little more. So, here are the items I would cop:
Minghao’s “Something & Associate” hoodie
To be honest I’d take every hoodie in the kpop industry but I especially like this one because it’s just fun. Also, the classic black and white is perfect.
Taehyung’s orange belt
This belt would add spice to so many different outfits, I especially envision it with a white button down, white jeans, and white sneakers and this belt for a pop of color.
Shownu’s “Art is Fraudulent” t-shirt
The message on this shirt reminds me of how people will try to control messages by censoring art because it’s dangerous. Art is fraudulent/deceptive sometimes in it’s beauty and it’s importance because it’s world-changing. I tried not to start preaching about art. Anyway, I love this shirt, send it to me please.
Who knows, maybe my next post won’t be Kpop or fashion related?
I’ve always been into trends and trend forecasting, so I thought it would be fun to do some trend forecasting with Kpop fashion because we all know Kpop is my entire life. I am by no means a professional forecaster but I took into account past MV outfits, Seoul style, and looks from runways shows at SFW. Here are a few trends I think/hope will emerge.
Harnesses and braces have recently emerged as a trend in certain concepts like NCT Dream’s Go and Monsta X’s Dramarama. Belts will naturally follow in complex utility styles like the ones seen in street style.
Wide Leg Pants
Typically, idols tend to wear skinny jeans, tight leather pants etc. while this is all well and good there needs to be a little variety. For this F/W season in Seoul wide leg pants were huge and I hope it extends to Kpop fashion. Idol’s like BTS’ V wear these in casual situations often and JBJ’s Hyunbin has sported them for live stages already.
Jackets are a staple in music videos and live stages. But instead of basic bombers, denim, and leather jackets I expect that we’ll be seeing more statement jackets. Either with cool pieces of hardware, bold colors, or avant garde silhouettes. I think these pieces will make a huge impact in many concepts.
I’m always excited for the future of fashion in general and the intersection of fashion and music so I really hope some of my predictions hold true and that I see these pieces in the MVs of the future.
