K-Pop Fashion Inspiration: BTS' "Blood Sweat & Tears" Music Video

These three looks don't require blood, sweat, and tears to put together.

K-pop (or Korean pop) is a genre that continues to grow in popularity even outside of its native South Korea. But K-pop has more to offer than just its catchy tunes. 

In terms of fashion, K-pop artists bring us unique, daring, and interesting looks that offer amazing inspiration. We've covered K-pop fashion on CF before, and now we're adding to that series - after all, there's so much more in the genre that's worth covering!

I recently watched the "Blood Sweat & Tears" music video by BTS, a seven-member South Korean boy band, and it gave me some fun fashion ideas. Below, I've created three looks inspired by their style. 

Outfit 1: V's Striped Pajamas

Products: Blazer - ASOS, Jumpsuit - Nordstrom, Shoes - Charlotte Russe, Earrings - Forever 21

This look is a feminine twist on the outfit that V wears in the music video. Switch out the robe for a striped blazer, and instead of burgundy pants, try a jumpsuit for a cute and sophisticated look.

Because V doesn't wear any shoes with that outfit, I kept it minimal with nude sandals. Due to the heavy religious imagery in the music video, I added the cross earrings for a finishing touch. If those aren't in line with your beliefs, sub them for any dangly, jeweled earring.

Outfit 2: J-Hope and Velvet

If you are going for style AND comfort, J-Hope's look is the perfect choice for inspiration. Not only are bomber jackets super in right now, they are so comfortable. Taking the trend even further, nothing could be better than a soft velvet bomber jacket.

Style this look with a simple tank top, solid-colored jeans, and some sneakers for a cool vibe. Bring the look to life with some accessories such as these rings (the arrow accent ties in with the music video!) 

Outfit 3: Jin in Black and White

This is one of the most iconic moments in the music video, filled with drama and symbolism. In a more literal sense, black and white is a classic fashion color palette and great inspiration for a winter look.

Borrowing from Jin's look, take a white blouse (the embroidered collar adds a fun touch) and style it with black skinny jeans and pointed booties. The wing ear cuff is a statement piece that completes this outfit.
