[Style Profile] FT Island’s Lee Hong Gi
K-Pop is about looking good and setting trends, and while onlookers may criticize idol groups for being ‘manufactured’ and ‘packaged,’ today’s idol stars are all about expressing their individuality through fashion off the stage.
In light of this and with the upcoming Style Icon Awards on our minds, we’re launching a new Style Profile series, where we will break down the personal styles of some of our favorite idol stars.
There’s no better place to get a sense of a celebrity’s style (and his/her personality) than through SNS, where the stars’ selcas not only entertain, but give fans a glimpse into the idol’s everyday looks.
And who better to kick off the series than Twitter fiend FT Island’s Lee Hong Gi!
Lee Hong Gi′s style
Lee Hong Gi is known for his eccentric personality, and it often shines through in his wardrobe. Lee Hong Gi is all about loud prints, which means polka dots and bright colors are staples in his closet.
Wild prints aren′t limited to just his clothing, however, as he often rocks bold patterns on his feet as well.
Lee Hong Gi has his laidback days as well, where he keeps it considerably casual in fitted jeans and a T-shirt. But even on those days, Lee Hong Gi amps up his look with bold accessories. And Lee Hong Gi is all about hats.
Lee Hong Gi′s wide hat collection ranges from everyday casual to funky, and his hat tricks help him go from cute to edgy in seconds.
How to dress like Lee Hong Gi
Like any idol star, when it comes to the pants, the skinnier the better. But if you want to perfect the Hong Gi style for yourself - go wild. From polka dots to leopard print, even snake skin, go for the craziest pattern on the rack, and you′re already halfway there to achieving Lee Hong Gi′s signature look.
A hat often pulls Lee Hong Gi′s eclectic look together, so whether it′s a bowler hat or a studded headband, if it′s meant for your head, it′s good to go. And if you have the idol star perm - even better!
