Trend Alert: Womenswear for Men
While it's nothing new for women to borrow from the men's section, the idea of men wearing clothes designed for women is less common. Sure, we see idols in drag all the time, but do we ever see men wearing stuff from the women's department unironically? This summer, the answer is yes, as these five, fashion-forward men show us that style really is genderless.
In Seungri's version of Big Bang's Alive Special Edition (released in June), there's a picture of him wearing a leopard print shirt. As it turns out, this shirt is from one of Roberto Cavalli's womenswear lines! To personalize the look, Seungri paired the shirt with a red jacket, which disguised the billowy sleeves, and removed the narrow, self-fabric belt. [Source: UKBigBang]
Also in June, style icon G-Dragon was spotted in Paris wearing a black maxi skirt with a red belt and white t-shirt. During that trip, he did a photo shoot with Harper's Bazaar, where he wore a black, knee-length skirt with his skateboarding gear.
On June 28th, in order to fit in with the "beach theme" of the Mnet 20's Choice Awards, the Asian Soul J.Y. Park himself wore a black, wraparound maxi skirt with a slit up the back, paired with black gladiator sandals. He dressed the outfit up with a cap-sleeved, white button-down and red bowtie.
2AM's Jo Kwon made good on his promise to perform in Jeffrey Campbell's 19.5cm shoes with no heel support on July 1st, giving everyone something to talk about. He completed his dramatic stage costume with tight black pants and a dramatic, feathered collar that extended from his nose to his waist.
B2ST's Junhyung had some fun on the set of the 'Midnight Sun' (released July 21) photo shoot, while wearing a jacket and pants from Ashish's Spring/Summer 2012 collection. He made the look his own with a fringed scarf and a yellow t-shirt. [Source: Cube-Style]
