If we're being honest, there's simply no one doing fashion better than BTS right now. An acronym of Bangtan Sonyeondan or "Beyond the Scene," the seven-member K-pop sensation from South Korea has become an unstoppable juggernaut in the music industry breaking streaming records and selling out stadiums with (seemingly) the ease of throwing up a Korean finger heart. And their runaway popularity extends to their showstopping style, too.
For the uninitiated, BTS clothing merch reflects their superstar status with a continent-hopping array of labels ranging from American streetwear to Parisian couture and Japanese artisan fashion. Whether it's Hypebeast sweats or tailored suiting, unbridled glamour, or effortless cool, Jin, RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook always look good.
Maybe it's only natural for the eldest of the Bangtan men to manifest an aesthetic that's both dashing and mature. Jin's style is uncomplicated but never boring. He blesses our timelines with selfies in crisp button-downs, tailored statement jackets, and it must be said that the man wears the hell out of a suit. Off-duty, Jin remains every inch the heartthrob while keeping it cozy and casual with oversized hoodies in soft pastel shades.
Considering his lyrics are like poetry, it tracks that RM would dress like an art student, with a side of hypebeast. The leader of Bangtan has a deep affection for meditative hobbies, and that thoughtful serenity comes through in his fashion choices: earthy palettes, loose kimono-style jackets, cardigans, shorts, and beanies make up his practical, easy 'fits. Translation: if you can wear it riding a bike by the Han River, wandering through an empty museum, or slowly hiking through a forest, it's in RM's closet.
Suga looks equally comfortable in the studio producing the world's next smash hit as he does hanging out at a strawberry farm — and his style reflects that swaggering, no-nonsense ease. He loves muted hues, so you'll rarely see him wearing brights (at least off-stage). In fact, he loves the color black so much that he once cited Batman as his fashion icon.
While the rapper mostly adheres to streetwear labels, as expected, every once in a while he ditches his uniform of Fear of God T-shirts and Mastermind Japan hats. When he slips on a fuzzy sweater, the world collectively swoons, and Twitter trends with all-caps mentions of his sartorial softness. It's nearly impossible to scroll through a timeline full of cozy-sweatered Suga without developing a lifelong crush.
