His fashion style is known to be flexible and unconventional, not bound by any restrictions.

I also believe there are no fixed rules when it comes to clothing or accessories. So, I tend to avoid so-called formalities, and embrace the feeling of being free.

He reveals his relationship with fashion started from a young age— as young as when he was in kindergarten. In fact, he shared that he wore a leather beret and leather jacket back then. He laughed and acknowledged that young children don’t typically wear such outfits, but he loved doing so.

Even now I wear what I feel like wearing without reason. It makes me feel good by doing so, and that’s why I believe fashion is the easiest way to express myself on any given day. I also think it shows my personality.

—Taeyong

Taeyong’s artistic sense bleeds into all aspects of his life, from music to fashion, and we can’t get enough of it.
