NCT 127’s Johnny knows and loves simplicity, but he certainly knows how to take it to the next level. Not as obsessed with prints as he is with layers, fabrics, and textures, he’s known for keeping a sleek-yet-casual, and urban-yet-elegant style. A fan of blazers, leather jackets, white shirts, and long coats, he loves to experiment with different shapes and lengths when talking fashion, reason why he manages to turn every stage, street, and/or airport into a runway in the most effortless way. The list of favorites is infinite, but here are 11 of our absolute favorite looks Johnny blessed us with since he showed up and brightened up our lives.
White Suit Perfection
A white power-suit moment full of little details. The buttons, the black finishes, and even the studded belt turn this simple and powerful fashion moment into an iconic one.
Comfy and urban with a preppy touch. We find preppy details in many of his outfits, and this is a great example of one of them. Oversized pants matching his shirt, a heavy tweed blazer, and of course, sneakers to break the formality, aka, Johnny in a nutshell.
If there’s something Johnny is not afraid of, it’s pumping up his style with accessories. This kinda retro look turns into a magazine-cover worthy one with the added beret and crossed-body bag.
Another all-white moment for the books. This white suit is full of little details that make it unique. The glittery shirt with pearl buttons, the diamond-embroidered jacket, and the velvet pants come together to transform Johnny’s stage look into an angelic moment.
Denim on Denim
Traditional simplicity. Johnny loves denim apparel in any form and even more if he gets to wear it all at the same time. It’s a combo that can look pretty simple at first, but turns into an aesthetic pleasure when appreciated as a whole.
One of Johnny’s strengths? Turning simple looks into iconic ones. While he could have chosen the simple alternative, a black suit, he went for a light gray that not only fits him perfectly but also breaks the traditional mold.
Kick It Era
Without a doubt an iconic look for an iconic moment. “Kick It” is Johnny’s era, and he did everything in his power to make sure we know it. This outfit will stay locked in our memories for life as probably one of the most glorious moments in K-pop fashion.
This look is the definition of Johnny’s style: the white T-shirt, the open shirt, the check blazer, and the blue jeans. It’s a simple combo that he manages to transform into a style statement by adding little details that change the outfit completely, such as the glasses, the backpack, and the belt.
Prints Over Prints
While he usually keeps it on the simple side, we’ve also seen Johnny play around with prints occasionally, and when he decides to take that path, he goes all the way in. This combo features plaid pants and a color-block crewneck we usually wouldn’t picture Johnny wearing together, but isn’t it just the perfect fit when you see it?
A Style Punch
Without a doubt a look we’ll remember for eternity. It’s not only the fake tattoos, but also the chains, the studs, the tiny crystals on the pants, the zippers, the makeup, and the hair. The whole styling is just exquisite and demonstrates Johnny can truly pull off anything and everything he tries on.
