[Style Profile] Big Bang’s G-Dragon
We wanted to round out our male idol star Style Profile series with a bang, and who better to take it home than Big Bang’s G-Dragon.
Since making his debut as Big Bang’s leader in 2006, G-Dragon has been blazing his own trail, not only as a musician but as a style icon.
If staying ahead of trends is crucial to remaining relevant in fashion, G-Dragon is in a league of his own when it comes to his personal style.
As much as Big Bang has matured musically, G-Dragon has come a long way since his oversized T-shirt and baggy jeans, old school YG debut days. A really long way.
In fact, we have a hard time keeping up nowadays because G-Dragon’s style is constantly evolving.
G-Dragon’s style in front of the camera isn’t exactly uniform—just look at his ever changing hair.
The idol star’s SNS posts and airport fashion, however, offer some insight into the looks G-Dragon likes to rock on a regular basis, and the Big Bang leader keeps it low key, while maintaining an element of edge. He is often seen in all kinds of denim—from skinny jeans and cut offs to denim jackets—scoop neck T-shirts and tanks and practically lives in hats and sunglasses. .
Accessories are also G-Dragon’s toys, so the bigger and more uncomfortable(read: like a weapon) it looks, the better.
How to dress like G-Dragon
For those casual days, cut offs, a denim jacket (shredded, obviously) or badass leather jacket (studded, of course) over a tank top and your favorite pair of high tops will do.
If you want to achieve the idol star’s more avant garde looks, however, first know that money can’t buy you G-Dragon’s style. We don’t say that to discourage you, but to inspire you to get creative.
We probably couldn’t afford half the things in G-Dragon’s closet, but you don’t need to splurge on designer items to go G-Dragon wild.
In fact, being fashionable means being resourceful as well. So if you’re feeling Big Bang bold, don’t let that fluffy floor mat lying around your house collect dust and turn it into your very own G-Dragon-circa-his-Bad Boy-days-inspired jacket.
