BTS’s Tiny Fashion Connoisseur, Park Jimin
The members of BTS have always been known for their on point fashion sense, even from their debut. Rocking Hood By Air pieces in their song ‘No More Dream,’ all eyes were on BTS from their very first stage. Now, in their 6th year as a group, the members have graduated from streetwear brands to luxury brand pieces such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton, to name a few. With that said, most people usually look to V or RM for their fashion styles, as both of them are known to prefer out-of-the-box pieces and interesting styling, but how about BTS’s main vocal, Jimin?
One can’t easily pinpoint Jimin’s style, as he casually mixes more low-key pieces with luxury brand items to spice up his look. Not only that, he always seems to dress for the occasion, from comfortable wear off-screen to classy, high fashion looks on-screen. Let’s take a look at Jimin’s most iconic looks!
Check Out Jimin’s Best Style Choices!
Starting with his airport fashion, Jimin seems to always choose his clothes based on comfort and the weather conditions in both Korea and his destination country. Check out some of these looks below!
The picture above was taken when he was due to leave for one of his concerts in America, back in November of 2017. Jimin effortlessly combined a sleek, black leather jacket with a black and yellow plaid shirt. Not only that, he tied up the look with black jeans, black combat boots and a black carry-on. The resulting look is one that gives warmth but still leaves a striking impression with the yellow pop of color.
Another one of his more iconic looks is the one he wore when returning from his activities in America. Jimin is positively engulfed in his dark, forest green bomber jacket, paired with a black turtleneck, a black cap, and a dark grey pair of jeans. The long flight must be something he kept in mind while choosing his outfit, as it seems like something he could snuggle in during the long flight. Not only that, it is quite perfect for the weather that is slowly getting colder.
Switching to his fashion in the spring, Jimin paired a classic white button-down with fancy detailing on the sleeves, and a pair of black slacks to achieve a quite minimalist look. As he heads to America once more for the BBMAs in LA, he chooses look more sleek and minimal as compared to his previous looks. The spring weather also lends itself to fewer layers and lighter materials.
Jimin’s more casual looks can be mostly seen during the times he is rehearsing on stage or in the practice room, as he manages to balance his fashion preferences with pieces that are comfortable enough to dance in. Check out some of these looks below!
The picture above was taken at one of their concerts, behind the scenes, you can see Jimin rocking the fuzzy grey hat along with a light grey long sleeve t-shirt and ripped jeans. The combination is nothing special, but definitely comfortable for long practice hours and covers up the unstyled hair perfectly. It serves to keep him warm in the empty, cold arena but is also loose enough that sweat does not stick when it comes to practicing intense choreography.
The picture above is not from behind the scenes, but from a photoshoot done some months ago as part of BTS’s photobook. Jimin rocks a deep orange-red sweatshirt that contrasts nicely with his black hair and blue skies. It is meant to embody the concept that they are bringing through with the album, but is also a nice reminder that Jimin looks amazing both styled up and dressed down.
The next look is taken from his many going to work looks, as exemplified with early going to work pictures from music bank and the KBS parking lot. Here, Jimin styles a bright red fuzzy sweater with black trousers, a cross-body bag and topped off with a white Stussy beanie and a pair of sunglasses. The look is laid back, but put-together enough that he could face the fans and press early in the morning.
Like many other idols, Jimin is also very popular for his boyfriend-look stylings, which make you curl up and your heart beat twice as fast. He does this by mixing and matching some of his more casual pieces but making it somewhat semi-formal in look. Let’s take a look at some of his boyfriend looks to date!
Above, Jimin rocks a white henley shirt made of a somewhat airy and light material, accessorizing minimally with a pair of dangling earrings. This seems to be a common trend in Korean pop fashion nowadays, in which statement jewelries such as earrings are brought to the center against very minimal clothing. Not only that, it also serves as a nice contrast between the clean, pressed shirt and the spiky, dangling earrings.
Earrings and black suit jackets aka blazers seems to be Jimin’s trademark, as it seems, seen in the two pictures above. Jimin highlights the earrings as his statement piece while looking sharp in a black blazer paired with jeans, the first being an all black fit while the second a more laid back take with a pair of blue denims. In his first look, Jimin casually slips a black t-shirt underneath the blazer but seems a lot more put together and sleek compared to the second, which he paired with a dark grey button down. This just shows Jimin’s wonderful ability to pair pieces together ,no matter their original value and function, to create the fit he wants to showcase.
Moving on to his more formal looks, Jimin on the red carpet often showcases high-fashion and luxury brand pieces, due to the fact that BTS has been sponsored quite a few times by designer brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and more. Let’s check out some of his looks below!
When it comes to his red carpet fashion, Jimin seems to always be styled with bold statement pieces that don’t overwhelm his petite body. With the look above, it does not seem overly done, with the all black color scheme, but the style is elevated with the double-breasted jacket and pops with the giant brooch made of crystals. the suit is tailored nicely, so that it fits him properly at the waist and accentuates his figure, which again is quite an interesting fit for a dominantly masculine style.
His next look is one he wore to the 2016 Asian Artist Awards, at which he and BTS were to perform Blood, Sweat and Tears. The styling for the comeback can be described as very over-the-top and vampire-esque, yet combining such aesthetics with a touch of bright colors and luxurious fabrics. The look above exemplified that, with an electric blue jacket with an interesting animal fur pattern of a velvet, textured fabric. Paired simply with a black V-neck tunic and black trousers, it is a bold statement without it being too much. The red-patterned scarf tied around his neck is just the cherry on top.
The look above is quite a stunner and interesting to look at, because at this particular red carpet, BTS was fully decked out in Gucci ready-to-wear men’s fashion, provided by the fashion house. Headed by Alessandro Michele, the fashion house started putting out pieces that are quite out there and what most would call an eccentric preppy look that gives a nostalgic feel. As seen above, Jimin is wearing a dark blue suit with a sweater vest and crisp, white shirt on the inside, but what really makes it stand out is the fur detailing on the sleeves and dots adoring the suit.
Jimin showed off his summer style during BTS’s Bon Voyage run on V Live. The mini-series follows the group as they take some time off in various parts of the world, such as Hawaii, Northern Europe, and Malta. During the run in Hawaii, in particular, Jimin can often be seen sporting a Hawaiian shirt paired with a straw hat, check out some of his looks below!
Different than his look above, in the particular one, Jimin can be seen sporting a plaid long-sleeved shirt with an all black ensemble, paired, again, with the straw hat. As you can see, Jimin is seen sitting on top of a yacht, and the cooler air and windy nature of the ride might be the reason behind his more covered-up look. Despite it, he still seems on brand and dressed for the occasion as the casual look is fitting for yachting in the sunset.
Next, we can see some more of Jimin’s fashion outside of the Hawaiian shirts and the straw hat, as the group travels to swim with sharks. Jimin can be seen rocking a printed tee with shorts and a cross-body bag.
In regards to the photo shoots that Jimin does with various press outlets and magazines, he tends to be styled cleanly and with not a lot of outstanding pieces. It’s understated and minimal, but the way he carries himself with his poses makes up for it. Check out some of his looks below!
Different from his looks above, Jimin is styled quite luxuriously for his shoot with Billboard, an international publication. This is due to the fact that it is one of the first shoots BTS was having with an international publication, so the stylist definitely went all-out to cater to the masses, with a look that is more similar to his stage outfits. The play in textures is quite familiar, but the color palette chosen for his outfit is something we have never seen before with Jimin’s looks.
So what do you think of Jimin’s fashion? Do you think the way he styles his looks are top notch or a flop? What kind of outfits are you looking forward to wearing after looking at the looks above? Leave your thoughts and opinions down below!
