FASHION FORWARD

Just like the Grammy-nominated group’s style of music has changed over the years, so has BTS’ fashion game. Following BTS’ historic BBMA 2017 debut, Vogue highlighted V’s fashion game in a feature. Swooning over the member’s eye for iconic outfits, the publication wrote, “Perhaps the most fashion-forward dresser was V, who paired a cropped pinstripe jacket and polka-dot dress shirt with loose-fit pants—a bold choice that he pulled off with ease.”

True to the prophetic words of the publication, V established himself as the ‘fashion icon’ of the group, who has caused a social media storm after almost every award show appearance since. From top-selling designers to fashion critics, V’s sense of fashion, where he seamlessly incorporates different textures and silhouettes in various airport outfits and red carpets, has awed the fashion industry veterans. V’s fashion can be described as easy and best of minimalism that looks chic and expensive.
