Welcome back to another installment of For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take time out of the week to curate a set of photos from the K-pop landscape.
Leather is back on trend, whether in the form of the classic jacket, statement boots, or as an avant-garde alternative to cargo pants and ripped jeans. Whatever the style, leather gives any look that extra edge, from the sharp silhouettes of the jackets worn by Soyeon and Yuqi of (G)-Idle, to the way Taeyeon accessorises with a studded utility belt. It’s the perfect choice for a group shifting towards a darker concept, as seen in Chen’s all-black attire for EXO’s Obsession album photo shoot; or for an idol to showcase a different side to their image – see Twice’s Jeongyeon slouching in oversized leather trousers for Marie Claire. For those of us looking to keep warm during the winter, leather jackets and big boots are a practical and stylish way to add a little attitude to any outfit. Flick through these photos to find your favourite way to wear leather this season.
