Taking inspiration from the trend with its origins in the 20th century, the fashion world has seen a plethora of sweater vests recently. One striking feature in the fall 2020 season was the sweater vest. The once “uncool” fashion item made it to many racks including Jil Sander, Dries Van Noten, Gucci, and Prada. Recently, NCT Dream’s leader sported the trendy garment over a white T-shirt in “7llin’ in the DREAM.” Mark’s pick was thisisneverthat’s knit vest in olive.

Proving to be one of the most versatile pieces, it looks like the blazer trend is here to stay. A trend that took over social media in 2020 and continues to dominate wardrobes in 2021, due to its modernization using new fabrics and silhouettes! Likewise, it made it to NCT Dream’s wardrobe, specifically Jaemin’s. Jaemin often spices up his airport looks with the addition of a beautiful blazer. His wardrobe includes pieces by Prada and BELLBOY. He styled his Prada blazer by incorporating it in a monochrome outfit, along with loose-fitting pants, a white turtleneck, and a crossbody bag. The look was finished with a black bucket hat and Chelsea boots.

Skinny jeans, a hoodie or sweatshirt, along with a cap or beanie is arguably every artist’s favorite look. This combination is pretty hard to miss in K-pop and is the epitome of “off-duty” looks. The functionalities of the outfit are usually tested near a comeback when the members have to hide their new hair color. NCT Dream members exude their unique charms with their different hoodies. Jisung, a pioneer in pulling off this look, showcases his charisma through a wide mix of high-end luxury and local brands. His recent picks include Thom Browne’s navy pullover, F Vertical Hoodie by FIX NOTHING, and Stüssy’s ash heather sweatshirt.

When traveling as much as NCT Dream does, a bag is a must have. Though Jisung said that Jaemin never carries a bag in the first episode of “7llin’ in the DREAM,” all Dream members have been spotted carrying designer bags. Renjun and Haechan both hold their essentials in the Saint Laurent Large Sac De Jour Bag, though Haechan occasionally opts for a sporty Off-White duffle bag. Jaemin uses the chic yet utilitarian Dior Book Tote with his name personalized on the bag. Chenle’s pick is the Louis Vuitton Christopher Backpack.

A K-pop idol essential, the baseball cap, frequently appears within NCT Dream’s looks. An item that dominates the fashion scene from high fashion to high street, the baseball cap serves a multitude of purposes. NCT Dream usually brings out their caps prior to a comeback, often shielding their latest hair trends. Jaemin uses the Classic Baseball Cap by Balenciaga while Jeno often dons the Vibrate Split Ball Cap. Mark recently sported the Polo Ralph Lauren logo embroidered cap in an Instagram post.
