There are millions of reasons why so many people around the globe adore Park Jimin of BTS. Apart from being a talented dancer, singer, and sweetheart, he’s an adorably impish idol whose favorite hobbies include getting scolded by the other BTS members for being late and giggling so hard that he falls out of his chair. There’s his absolutely hypnotic and gravity-defying dancing (perhaps he’s too pretty for the laws of physics to apply to him). There’s his philanthropy and his sincere, unwilling love for ARMY. Oh, and did I mention he’s gorgeous? His beauty is mythic. His Bratz doll lips, his ‘90s Leonardo DiCaprio hair — did the phrase “devastatingly handsome” exist before Park Jimin was born? No, it did not.
The list will be never-ending if I start to write down his qualities but of everything, there is, my personal favorite thing about him is his style. Is there really anything out there Jimin can’t pull off? Don’t think so. From minimal outfits to statement pieces, layering, and cute looks, he has the ability to play around with different styles and make them his own. Undeniably cool, always boundary-pushing, and never boring, Jimin’s fashion is my love language. Therefore, on the auspicious occasion of the Busan Prince's 26th birthday celebration, here are 5 signature fashion moves by Park Jimin that had made him earn the title of Ultimate IT Boy.
STATEMENT VEST JIMIN SUPREMECY
THE HALF JACKET
One of my all-time favorite signature Jimin moves is the gorgeous double earring. Other idols too rock the multi-earring look (hello, RM) but there’s something about Jimin in dangling earrings that just hit differently. Maybe it’s how the double earrings highlight the undeniable symmetry of his perfect face. Maybe it’s because they increase his ethereal fairy vibe by about 1000%. Either way, I’m starting a petition for his picture to be kept in a museum because this boy is a work of art.
We stan a king who refuses to go by gender norms and dresses according to his choice. Isn't it too hot when Jimin does this? On and off stage, Jimin wears pretty clothes regardless of which gender they’re supposed to be for. Frilly blouses, bouclé tweed Chanel jackets, lace chokers, pink silk pants — his beauty transcends labels and so does his closet. In a way, we are blessed to witness Jimin in a corset from Black Swan and a skirt in the Butter photo series. This is Park Jimin for us!
LOVELY, LOVELY, LOVELY!
If there’s something incredible about Jimin, it is his duality. He can go from fierce to cute in the blink of an eye, and glasses bring out a whole different side to him. Jimin’s never met a pair of glasses he couldn’t completely pull off. Huge Harry Potter frames, yellow-tinted aviators, classic cool-guy Ray-bans, boyfriend aesthetic wire rims — the list is endless and pretty strong. Jimin can be squishy-cheeked, sweet-as-mochi adorable in one second, and ready-to-ruin-your-life sexy in the next.
