Since the announcement of NCT’s fixed unit, NCT DOJAEJUNG, fans of K-pop stars Doyoung, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo have experienced a whirlwind of emotions. From the announcement itself to the launch of an official Instagram account, the superstars have kept the internet on their toes. Now, they’re also offering a few style lessons on their teaser pictures and bringing back a timeless style formula: denim and white. Here are three ways of wearing it, according to NCT’s newest subunit. 

A Bulletproof Style Formula

Matching denim and white pieces might sound like an overused style trick, but sometimes less is more when it comes to fashion. The white T-shirt and jeans combo, for example, has been a formula repeated across generations with success. Over time, denim and white items have become quintessential staples of any wardrobe. You can — almost — never go wrong with these versatile and timeless pieces and if you had any doubts, just take a look at the runways of brands such as Prada, Bottega Veneta, or even Dior. If you’re looking for further proof, NCT members Doyoung, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo flaunt these closet basics in the photo teasers of their upcoming mini album, Perfume

Tank Tops Are Taking Over Fashion

ICYMI, tank tops are the hottest fashion item this season. The piece of garment, once upon a time regarded as underwear, saw a renaissance on the runways of the Fall-Winter 2022 Fashion Week, with brands like Ludovic de Saint Sernin, Diesel, and Loewe turning them into some of their most coveted items. Naturally, tank tops have since permeated into the wardrobes of every A-lister and made waves on social media — on TikTok alone #tanktop counts with over 608 million views. Of course, K-pop stars have been no exception. Several celebrities are slipping into tank tops for stage outfits, concept pictures, and off-duty looks

For instance, in the images teasing the release of NCT DOJAEJUNG’s mini album, Doyoung made a fashion statement dressed in a white tank top and denim pants. The singer accentuated the look with a black leather belt and silver necklaces, bracelets, and rings. But this is not the first time Doyoung sports this iconic look. Much to his fans’ delight, the power vocalist previously wore a similar ensemble while sightseeing in Mexico. Back then, Doyoung paired the look with a cardigan and a bomber jacket, proving how versatile this style staple is.

Denim on Denim Will Never Go Out Of Style

Another equally timeless combination making the rounds recently is the Canadian tuxedo. In sync with the retro revival taking over fashion, looks associated with the past are making a comeback. And though people might associate denim on denim outfits with stars such as Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, Jane Birkin Drew Barrymore, or even Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake — depending on what era you are from — denim on denim is pretty much alive with the likes of Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and even K-pop group IVE making a case for it. Now, Jaehyun, NCT’s heartthrob, is joining the list.  

The star donned a total denim outfit featuring relaxed-fit pants and a frayed hem jacket. The matching set was properly accessorized with leather loafers, silver jewelry, and blonde hair that added to the boy-bander allure. While most of us might not possess the staggering ability to make every fit look like taken from a magazine spread, denim on denim is a safe outfit formula. You can emulate Jaehyun’s look by pairing basic jean pieces from your closet but if you’re afraid of being overpowered by the total aesthetics, then you can break up the denim by wearing a top underneath and choosing the right footwear.

White Denim FTW

White denim is as divisive as it gets but surprisingly, white jeans make for a particularly stylish choice — especially during warmer seasons. Long gone are the days when you had to avoid see-through white denim because nowadays there are plenty of shades of white to choose from. As we step into spring, and in tandem with the echo that aesthetic trends like the “Vanilla Girl” are still causing, white jean is a must-have staple. 

If you don’t believe it, just take a look at Jungwoo, who rocks this item in NCT DOJAEJUNG’s teaser pictures. Dressed in a total-white look featuring a T-shirt and jeans, the star lets his sartorial chops shine. The look flaunts a refined touch courtesy of complements such as silver jewelry, an elegant timepiece, and derby shoes. However, the charm of white denim is that it can easily go from casual to dressy with the right accessories, allowing plenty of room for experimentation.
