WTK has been watching the trendsetters and gathering the top ten fashion trends since the clock struck midnight for 2020, and so far, we’ve narrowed down the top looks for the month of January! From airport fashion to fashion shows, we have the looks that will inspire your own winter wardrobe and help take it into spring. You’ll find that January is all about lighter neutrals with color pop flair. Check out our Fashion Faves from January below!
10. Lisa (BLACKPINK)
Kicking off our list is Lisa from BLACKPINK as she rocks leather boots with a black shimmering skirt and a classic, white turtleneck sweater. We’re also in love with her twist on the fanny pack! Instead of the one your mom wears to Disneyland, this belt-purse is chic-couture and hangs like a well tightened bow on the hip. Her look dominated the Celine fashion show in Paris and made her the center of attention at this important event.
9. Bae Suzy
Our next Fashion Fave is Suzy’s bohemian, island-themed dress with a celadon-colored handbag and a delicate, three-tiered, black pearl necklace with matching rings. Bringing spring’s warm breeze early into the year, Suzy turned heads at Christian Dior‘s fashion show during Paris Fashion Week. Her spaghetti straps and colored handbag made us all believe she was ready to wiggle her toes in the sand of an exotic beach!
8. Sandara Park
We’re head over heels for Sandara‘s flats and schoolgirl socks with her office chic look! A grey blazer with some metallic bling cover a unisex, button-down top with a black tie, giving her just enough Annie Lennox edge to contrast appropriately with her frilled, lace-green shorts under a fitted grey skirt. This Thom Browne outfit and backpack-style purse is the ultimate schoolgirl meets sexy secretary look!
It’s not a fashion top ten without G-Dragon! Mostly in Chanel, the BIGBANG leader treads new waves with his Chanel pin bling. A light blue tweed jacket pairs well with dark blue slacks and blinged-out Chanel penny loafers, but what we adore is how he is working that debonaire Brenton hat! A navy patterned shirt and Chanel bag finishes his bad boy in blue look! It’s no wonder both paparazzi and fans were all snapping pictures.
6. Taeil (NCT)
Sporting a grey, letterman jacket over a well-placed plaid sweater, Taeil traveled to the Incheon airport in style. His light yellow sneakers shined as he made his way to through the crowds. With a new, bright hair color, he made us feel like we were in high school again and majorly crushing on the captain of the football team! Taeil’s sporty and casual look is the fresh outfit we wish all our boyfriends had.
5. Sandara Park
Once again, Sandara made our list as the fashion queen herself brings a fierce presence to Paris Fashion Week. Decked out in Balmain, she walks the streets to the label’s show in an edgy, black mini-dress with polka-doted lace and a high-neck collar. She adds more spunk to the outfit with a spiked, gold purse, but she tones it down with simple black heels.
4. Kai (EXO)
Known as K-pop’s ultimate Gucci King, EXO‘s Kai was a special guest once more at this year’s Gucci show. The entire time Kai was in Milan, he turned heads with his chic and elegant, European-style outfits. However, his best look of the week was the more fashion-forward outfit he wore to the runway show. Mixing hound’s tooth plaid pants with a flowered shirt, Kai was the perfect embodiment of Gucci’s current vintage-style concept of boho-chic. His minimalist, blue shirt under the flowered top gave the outfit a grounded focal point, leading fashion magazines around the world to laud his perfectly styled outfit as one of the best looks at the show.
3. JB (GOT7)
Everyone loves a bad boy, and especially one as sweet as JB! Rocking a classic leather jacket from Saint Laurent with a black T-shirt, skinny jeans, and glossy shoes, JB is the dark prince everyone wants in their fantasy. We love how the Saint Laurent triangle buckle belt brings more bling to this sleek look. No wonder his members call him the chic king!
The first look BTS portrays in their Golden Closet Film in Helsinki, Finland made ARMYs and non-fans alike tip their hats to these fashion kings. Directed and edited by Jungkook, the film showcases many looks (and Gucci everywhere, of course), but their intro style set the tone for the film. Suga and J-Hope‘s pop of orange catches the eye while V‘s European professor style brings warmth to their overall look. Meanwhile, Jimin‘s and Jin‘s soft cream jackets contrast perfectly with RM‘s sharp headmaster attire. We’re in love with BTS’ winter wonderland style!
1. Jennie (BLACKPINK)
Coming in as our top Fashion Fave is Jennie’s spring Chanel look. As another BLACKPINK member to grace our list, Jennie’s flirty and fun style is a must-have look this season! A neon purple jacket covers a frilly, baby blue tank top and is paired with flared, high-waisted jeans and white, heeled sandals. Overall, it’s the perfect weekend outfit anyone would adore. The purple, Chanel bag is the perfect accessory for this look with its well-stitched puffs and belt-like straps to give it a fun, playful vibe. However, the icing on the cake for this coy look is the bow across the bust! Meanwhile, the slight split down the middle of the shirt gives just a more mature and sexy look without letting the bow become too childish. Indeed, Jennie’s flirty spring outfit was our ultimate Fashion Fave for January!
