Seventeen kpop fashion: The members in the Don't Wanna Cry music video wearing white shirts and dark pants

Seventeen is a Korean boy group consisting of 13 members, with three sub-units: hip-hop, vocal, and performance. They belong to the same entertainment company (Pledis Entertainment) as Pristin, whom I covered previously

Originally, Seventeen was supposed to consist of 17 members but ended up making their debut in 2015 with 13. Now, the name Seventeen stands for the sum of the 13 members, the three sub-units, and Carat, their fan club (13 + 3 + 1 = 17). 

Recently, Seventeen made a comeback with their 4th album, the title track being “Don’t Wanna Cry”. It’s a song about regret and sorrow caused by a break-up. Check out the music video below:

Not only am I in love with the sick beat and choreography, I really like the fact that each member was styled in different clothing, giving them a sense of individuality and uniqueness. 

Here are my top three favorite looks from the “Don’t Wanna Cry” video that exemplify the Seventeen kpop fashion vibe:

Seventeen Kpop Fashion: Outfit 1

Products: Tee – Forever 21, Shorts – H&M, Hat – PACSUN, Earrings – Forever 21, Shoes – Nike 

I love this urban, edgy look. Of course, long sleeves and long pants in this weather may be a bit of a stretch. So I paired the graphic tee with black distressed denim shorts and kept the white hat and the star element with the addition of star earrings.

Products: Shirt – Urban Outfitters, Jeans – H&M, Earrings – Forever 21, Shoes – Birkenstock 

You can’t go wrong with a white tee and jeans. For this outfit, I was going for a natural, simple vibe. So I styled a white tee with ripped boyfriend jeans, and I kept the look clean and minimalistic with ear cuffs and footbed sandals.  

Seventeen Kpop Fashion: Outfit 3

Products: Shirt – H&M, Pants – Aerie, Cardigan – Forever 21, Shoes – Charlotte Russe

Matching neutrals are currently trending, and I love the laid-back, almost zenlike vibe they give off. For this look, I wanted to stick with the color beige (as shown in the music video) and also emphasize comfort. So I styled a loose-fitting linen top with lace-up sweatshorts and a long, hooded cardigan, then added flip flops for the ultimate lounge look
