I got into BTS in 2017 after the release of the Blood, Sweat, and Tears music video. Since then, I’ve been a huge fan of their music.
The group doesn’t stick to one type of style of anything, really. During their debut era the music they put out was highly influenced by hip-hop, rap and RnB, same goes with the fashion in music videos. As they started to grow and mature so did their art and style.
Not only did they grow, but they’d also start to experiment with new genres of music. Talk about various topics such as mental health, self-love, and criticizing baby boomers (referring to Baepsae and Dope).
All this served with mesmerizing visuals and fashion makes them hard to miss. Their style though ever-changing, is bold and unique, just like them.
1. Pink on pink on pink on pink.
Bangtan Soneyeondan is repping the color pink with the recent release of Map of the Soul: Persona. I absolutely love the different shades of color put together with different textures. The Boy in Luv music video’s Korean title translates to “A Poem for Small Things” which is apt for its sweet and romantic lyrics.
And what other colors could convey this better than pink?
2. Pretty pastels + denim=SLAY ME NOW.
Another range of outfits from the Boy in Luv video but this time it’s less in your face. I feel these outfits are more apt everyday looks (if a monochrome outfit isn’t your thing).
A more simmered down summery pastel is a great choice.
3. Badass street style, all day, every day.
Streetwear, one of my favorite trends, mainly because loose-fitting clothes are my favorite.
I feel much more comfortable wearing this kind of style. The song Mic Drop itself is a final good-bye to haters and the nay-sayers BTS have encountered in the past. It’s a declaration of self-love in the most epic way possible. I love the ‘effortless-yet-cool’ vibe the outfits give off and look comfortable to dance in.
4. Sexy suits. All of them. All. Of. Them.
Honestly, this entire music video deserves a written piece of its own.
But my favorite is Jimin’s velvet blue suit, along with the scarf and earrings. The outfit isn’t too flashy, it’s simple and elegant. And for those days where a dress just won’t do, a nice fitting suit is a wardrobe essential. With the music video’s lustful undertones and trap beat, the suits and with the silk scarves add a regal touch to the visuals.
All this put into one plus BTS’ intense knife like choreography, watching Blood, Sweat, and Tears is an experience.
