Sophomore Jimin Moon strutted through his first day of seventh grade with bright cobalt skinny jeans, suspenders and all topped off with a grey fedora.
However, Moon now casually strolls through the halls of Davis High with his evolved fashion sense: a dash of sporty, a sprinkle of elegant and, overall, simplistic and laid-back.
“I’d describe my style as ‘what can I put on in the morning that’s comfortable but I don’t look like a sausage,’ ” Moon said.
Compared to his philosophy from when he was younger, Moon believes in quality over quantity. Part of his shopping routine includes window shopping online, but then trying on the items in store before finally buying an item.
Some of the stores Moon shops at the most frequently are American Eagle and Urban Outfitters.
One of Moon’s fashion idols is Gigi Hadid. He admires her cute and flirty style as well as how put together she always looks.
Moon’s go-to outfits consists of basics such as the classic Adidas soccer pants, flannels, cardigans and most importantly – his theatre shirts.
Moon’s passion for theater is translated through his fashion. Whenever he goes to a show, whether he is watching it or performing in it, he always buys a shirt.
“I love wearing it [theater shirts] because it is so edgy. It’s like 90 percent of what I wear,” Moon said.
In addition to his theater shirts, Moon adds uniqueness to his closet by wearing shirts he gets from attending dance intensive camps and his old uncle’s clothing, as well as pieces from South Korea and Rome.
Although Moon likes to keep his outfits neutral with colors such as blue, black and grey, he spices up outfits with his secret weapon: socks.
Crew cut socks, holiday socks, socks from South Korea– all are a staple for Moon’s closet.
“Socks are so much fun because under the ordinary clothes, you’re wearing something [crazy] and it’s a little secret, but you obviously tell all your friends,” Moon said.
