BTS is back with explosive new single 'Dynamite', and it’s the feel-good tune we all needed!

Read on to find out which throwback pieces worn by each member caught our eye!

On the left, band leader RM is seen sporting jean shorts, white roll-up socks and Nike SB Dunk Ben & Jerry’s sneakers. He matched this with a classic white T and blue cardigan, resulting in an old-school skater boy look.

In the middle, he cleverly matches his star print shirt from Gucci with a pair of orange corduroys (unseen) and tops it all off with a pair of retro sunglasses for a 90’s Venice Beach vibe.

To the right, he uses an oversize faint blue shirt with matching faded blue straight jeans to balance his dazzling blue hair. The necklace from Kujaan is a classy accessory.

The eldest member opts for a boyish look with a dazzling knitted vest paired with straight jeans and a white T underneath. Together with his ginger hair, the orangey look blasts us with a vibrant dose of '80s summer.

On the right, the self-proclaimed Mr. Worldwide Handsome dons a polka dot shirt from Saint Laurent and matching brown trousers, held together by the abstract diagonal panel belt by Bottega Veneta and a necklace from Vintage Hollywood for a subtly psychedelic take on retro.

Suga scores a slam dunk by wearing this stunning midnight blue outfit. The leaf-patterned baseball shirt and matching loose pants give a laidback summer night charm. Having grown up a keen basketballer, the rapper's stylistic eye is definitely on the ball as he decides to layer it over a LeBron x Tune Squad Jersey from Nike for a trendy athleisure look borrowed from the streets of the ’80s, but with a silky finish that elevates it in class.

J-Hope explodes on to the scene in this music video with his Obey Big Shot T-shirt and contrasting orange corduroys. The orange retro shades, the poppy blocks of color on the black background of his T-shirt, coupled with the bright orange of his trousers and vintage red sneakers match his sunny energy. He blings it all up with a clover themed combination of necklaces and ring (unseen) from Wilhelmina Garcia.

The star dancer then stuns with one of our personal favorites from the video, a red leather shirt by Gucci reminiscent of Thriller-era Michael Jackson. Coupled with a belt from the same brand and blue boot-cut jeans, he finishes with a pair of pearl-white pointed dancing shoes (unseen) for a vintage rock and roll show-stopper Elvis Presley would have been proud of.

Jimin has a retro moment or three in this music video, first with a distressed denim pair of jacket and jeans from Ralph Lauren, complete with bursts of pink, delightfully old-school square Carin sunglasses and a gradient tee by Dior.

In the middle, he presents a dreamy 70’s themed outfit with a light purple blazer, lilac Jacquemus T-shirt and matching light purple shorts (unseen). The outfit goes well with his coffee brown hair for a pleasantly pastel moment.

On the right, he sports an all-Gucci ensemble of vintage zip-up jacket, flared jeans, belt and loafers with a tucked-in white T-shirt ready for an old-school American roller disco party.

V oozes urban cool in a radiant red silk cardigan layered over a white T-shirt and blue straight jeans for a pre-streetwear look, with brown Converse sneakers for a youthful charm.

On the right, he decks out in full Gucci with an all-green suit. The high-waist tailored trousers, button-down waistcoat and shirt-tie combination complement his husky vocals for a mature vinyl-era record executive aura.

Here the youngest of the group, Jungkook, shimmies his way through the chorus and into the ’80s with a check jacket, leather belt and regular jeans all from Gucci. The use of a white T-shirt balances the look.

Finishing off the list with a bang, the multitalented performer brings back the Canadian tuxedo, but in oversized, drop-shoulder version courtesy of Luis Vuitton. He combines the double denim salvo with a pair of Timberland boots and a Kujaan necklace for a fast-forward into 90’s hip-hop.


Dynamite proves that 2020 is no match for BTS, who are firing on all fronts be it musically, cinematically, or stylistically. They’ve provided us with a welcome dosage of summery nostalgia due to the bright beat, colorful art, disco-diner vibes, and of course the outfits! We cannot wait to see what other retro-goodness they’ve got up their sleeve; for now, we’ll have this tune on repeat. Call us Dynamite-city.
