[by Choi Soo Jin/ translated by Yanchingsally Chu] ‘Normcore’ is the fashion and beauty keyword in 2015. It refers to natural fashion styles completed by consciously choosing clothes or accessories that are undistinguished.
However, it is not an easy style to carry because selecting items wrongly might just bring you a comfortable yet unfashionable look. If you are still concerned about what to wear, let’s examine the fashion styles of male idols.
Diverse event venues, airports or even when they are on the way to work are great places and timing to observe their airport fashion. The other sides of celebrities, different from that on the stage, can be seen attracting the attention of their fans.
◆ Comfortable and Refined Slacks
Slacks and sweatshirts or knits can effortlessly complete Normcore look that is popular this year. Minho from SHINee matched black slacks with a knit top. It could have been a dull outfit, however, his grey sneakers and burgundy floppy hat added a special point to it.
