Boyfriend's Kwangmin wore JOYRICH Broadway Alley Jacket on "Dance Dance Dance" PV – it was simply matched with a T-shirt and jeans, which gives a casual yet fashionable feeling. Colourful graphic printings on that jacket shows off his ‘teen’ side perfectly although leather jackets usually represent strong and tough feelings.
Meanwhile, GLAM's Dahee wore it on "I Like That" MV. She wore it with a full-pattern T-shirt, turned out that it doesn't seem too much but it gives a cool yet elegant look. She looks similar to a female motor biker.
And Hyoyeon from SNSD wore this jacket for the teaser picture of "I Got A Boy". From the picture, we can point out two things: this jacket and her colourful hair, and it look so good. Matching with the concept of “I Got A Boy”, it shows a hip-hop look. And you can also feel a colourful yet cool feeling from her.
Both for Dahee and Hyoyeon, it seems that this jacket gives more volume and makes them chubbier than usual. Maybe it’s because they wore bigger size... as for leather jackets, one will look better if the jacket is a fitting size.
Different to others, Lee Hi gets it mix-matched with a one-piece dress in her MV, 188.8.131.52. She successfully gives a feminine yet strong look. One-piece dresses usually relate with women and femininity, however, the leather jacket fits the whole image so well. Ding dong~ It's time to change your minds that dress only gives a girly feeling, a leather jacket is a good choice to go with a dress.
Well... I'm trying to not be biased, but I think this jacket looks better on Kwangmin. We know that leather jacket corresponds more with motor bikers and gives 'tough' feelings, but Kwangmin gives off other feelings from wearing this jacket: colourful and casual! Not bad as a new choice to wear every day. But all of them: Kwangmin, Dahee, Hyoyeon, Lee Hi show that leather jacket is not an old-fashioned piece of clothing – it is a new fashion trend! What do you think? Who looks better in this jacket? Kwangmin, Dahee, Hyoyeon or Lee Hi?
You can get the jacket here for USD$180.95!
