BTS V made a flood on social networks with his romantic look like the man of 90s, j-hope with fur boots, Jungkook’s purple hair color and Jimin’s red hair like Dope’s Era with whíte shirt caught ARMY’s eyes.
The most important points that ARMYs quickly discovered later was the outfit Jimin was wearing. It was a pair of fur boots and a dress. The “Juďïệ Asymmetric Plaid Mini Skirt” Maje dress is cut in the center, revealing denim shorts underneath. A completely bold and unique style that not everyone has the courage to wear.

Fans couldn’t stop praising him for going against gender norms so openly. They love his confidence in showing everyone that men can wear skirts too.
They also commended his contribution to “putting an end to toxic masculinity” by wearing “feminine” clothing.
This isn’t the first time Jimin has defied gender stereotypes with his fashion. Previously, he wore a leather corset for version 2 of MAP OF THE SOUL: 7′ concept photos.
Members J-Hope, V, and RM also wore skirts during both the official photo shoot and the casual schedule.

With the reputation of BTS today, each point of view, their perspective on prejudices and the way they express their views has a great influence. And BTS has used their considerable influence to share good values. Jungkook once said that great style is “wearing anything you like, regardless of gender”.
Even in BTS RM’s speech at the United Nations, he said: “No matter who you are, where you’re from, your skin color, your GENDER identity, just speak yourself“
