The music world is no stranger to bold fashion statements and avant-garde looks, but at this year’s The Fact Music Awards (TMAs), NMIXX‘s choice of attire has undoubtedly turned heads and set the internet buzzing. The group’s appearance on the red carpet showcased a distinctive blend of fashion genres, leading to both praise and skepticism among netizens.
The ensemble worn by NMIXX members was a fusion of structured suits and relaxed street fashion. Oversized blazers, paired with long skirts, long grey socks, and classic black heels, dominated their look. Further setting a cohesive theme, the members embraced a monochromatic palette of white, black, and grey, giving their outfits a unified yet varied feel.
It wasn’t long after their arrival that fans and attendees started speculating about the inspiration behind the unique ensemble. True to their name, the NMIXX members revealed that they had chosen to ‘mix and match’ the traditional suit look with streetwear, resulting in the intriguing blend of oversized blazers and long skirts.

However, not all netizens were convinced. Some critics found the attire too adventurous, expressing their preference for a more traditional, aesthetically appealing outfit. Discussions on various social media platforms revealed a split among fans, with some stating that the mix of suit and street might have been a mismatch in this context.
No offense…but I didn't like the dressing!
