Airport Fashion Spotlight: NCT Taeyong 'Neo' Style
With 23 members in total, it’s no surprise that NCT has its fair share of fashionable members. However, NCT’s leader Taeyong is definitely one of the first members to come to mind when discussing NCT’s fashion. NCT is known for being an experimental group, and this is reflected in their stage outfits as well. While most of the other members of NCT prefer a more casual style in their downtime, it seems like Taeyong’s personal style seems to resonate with his professional style.
What does that mean? Let’s take a look at some of his best airport fashion looks and find out!
Taeyong mixes formal wear and streetwear for this outfit. While his turtleneck and houndstooth blazer have a more formal vibe, he dresses them down with a crossbody bag (worn under the blazer!) and a pair of “ugly” sneakers.

Taeyong has rocked a monochromatic outfit on more than one occasion, and this time it is his graphic t-shirt that is the focus of his outfit. The thick pinstripe pattern on his blazer matches the pattern on his pants, and he completes the outfit with a black beret.

Whether it’s an all-black outfit or a pastel-coloured outfit, Taeyong pulls it off effortlessly. Comfort is clearly the focus of this outfit, with the oversized button-up and wide-legged bottoms giving him a casual loose-fit silhouette. He completes the outfit with a pair of stylish yet convenient mules.

The houndstooth blazer is back, but this time instead of using a crossbody as a middle layer between his shirt and blazer, Taeyong wears a cardigan instead. Because of the cardigan being such a prominent aspect of the high teen aesthetic, many people might have the misconception that cardigans are for girls only—but Taeyong proves otherwise with this outfit!

Taeyong plays around with colours in this outfit, pairing a bright orange beanie with a green jacket. In order to let these two coloured items stand out, he styles them with dark wash jeans and black leather shoes.

When looking at Taeyong’s casual outfits, it’s clear that he enjoys experimenting with fashion—hence, is very much in alignment with NCT’s spirit of experimentation. He rarely sticks to one distinct style, and can often be seen sporting outfits that have completely different vibes within a short period of time.
