Taehyung is no short of an entertainer even when he tries not to be, his charm and talent all culminated in complimenting in the building of their fandom empire, ARMY. With a towering height and eccentric personality, you can expect his style to be just as unique.
There's a running joke amongst the fandom that the member dresses like a stylish old grandpa, it's uncanny at most but looking at his outfits, you would understand why. The singer is particular with his fashion in that he dresses how he likes, which from his outfits can be deduced by comfort, class and laid back. A quick search can show he loves the classic Western vintage look. His style and aura is one that attracts the attention of anyone's gaze, the kicker is, anyone can emulate it as well.
Style in not meant to be gate-kept and so in this article, we will breakdown the common style elements the artist wears so you navigate this 'Tata' world of style easier.
Tops : Loose Button Downs
Red Pinstripe Button Down
Nothing says class and effortless than a preppy but loose polo shirt. Particularly button down ones. Tae loves a loose fit so as to be more relaxed and not attract a tight silhouette to his figure, it makes your torso appear bigger without too much effort.
You can never go wrong with a brown tone button down, the color and fit can easily adapt to many different kinds of aesthetics with the flexibility of wearing it formally as it is or as a cover up button up for a relaxed feel or tool for layering, this item captures exactly what mean.
Floral Polo Shirt
There's no style he doesn't explore with this type of top. On vacation, you'll see him in floral or patterned style. A short sleeved one is better for a hotter climate. Make sure to choose ones with a less structured and hard fabric for more comfort.
If we beat you to the button ups, check out our B&W printed floral top. V styled it just as he did below. There's not much to do with this type of style and fit, the whole point is to where it on vacation with just the thought to relax, and this style definitely lets other people know that as well.
Beige Vest Top
To dress up a polo or top, you can always add a vest. It's the male version of women styling with a cardigan. Though it can go either way. V like to layer vests and other jackets, doing such adds texture and builds a complimentary color palette.
A beige knitted one is more in trend, see what we mean here, this style is more stylish and fit to the trend of knit but having it in such a color, it's impossible to go out of style. Imagine cottage core meets light academia, aesthetic, fitting and timeless.

Bottoms : Wide leg pants
Brown Wide leg Slacks
What is more comfortable than pants? Wide leg pants. V is almost known for rocking the loose silhouette in many occasions, such as in dance practices, casual wear and all other events that aren't official. The style is not common for most but they give a relaxed and upper class feel.
Brown wide leg pants with pleat detail
In addition, a slack style or a formal fabric dresses it up without feeling too uncomfortable which is most likely the reason he loves to wear them. Look how the bottoms don't look out of the place even though it's for an official event? There are kinds with a pleated detail on the top which creates a ball design.
It's very beginner friendly even a hit pairing would look ostentatious, a lighter color gives a classier and lighter look and gives a nice contrast to loud and bold tops if you'd like the attention to stay there, all while keeping comfort, find our comfiest pair here.
White Chino Shorts
These kinds of days are rare to come by but styling so is a sign for a relaxed and humid weather. Wearing a solid color, matching your top and bottoms makes it more cohesive and put together. If your top is tight fit, it might be good to match it with your bottoms as well.

One trick Tae uses to look put together is to follow a cohesive theme. If the look is casual, match it with an equally casual top. Not too much mix and match with styles as it may seem messy. In addition, adding sunglasses can elevate your look so as to not took too casual.

Coats : Trench Coats

He loves neutral ones in the tones of brown and black for that classic look. Styling such can be dressed down with sandals, or wide legged pants for that casual chic silhouette.
Black Button Trench coat
When thinking of Taehyungs style, something along the line of this outfit is what pops in our minds. Trench coats are supper classy and this one is particularly very formal, there are blazer type ones with a more relaxed shoulder but following a more formal and dressed up look is the way V is known to style them.

The reason being, the classic style is slowly dying and not in a good way, with the rise of baggy and super casual wear, timeless pieces such as these take a back seat even though they can be more effective for warmth without sacrificing style.

If this is too formal for your lifestyle, here's another version that is more relaxed. A relaxed shoulder with a loose fit will make your outfit softer and more casual. You can still keep the element of class and the overall trench coat vibe without seeming too ostentatious.

Hats : Berets and Caps
Black Mohair hats

The chunky pair styled with wide leg pants is a step up from joggers and sneakers as the shape is more clean cut and relaxed.
