There’s no denying that Ryan Gosling is one of the most stylish men in Hollywood today. The star is always dapperly turned out, on screen, when at photo-ops, and even when nobody’s looking. On his birthday, these 5 cues from his style will take ours a few notches higher.
#1 NAIL THE BOMBER JACKET
If there’s one jacket style you need to buy this season, make it a bomber. Experiment with a signature style, like the scorpion embroidered one Gosling sported in the movie Drive. But if that’s too bold for you, pick one that cut in a slim-fit, finishes at your waist and is in a colour that isn’t the usual black.
#2 OFF DUTY DOES NOT MEAN SLOPPY
You’re off the clock and want to be relaxed? Great idea. But there’s no reason why your look should be shapeless, sack-like and ill-fitting. Pick fitted crew-necks and Henleys, and pair them with smart trousers, washed denim, a simple neckpiece, and lightweight cardigans.
#3 BUILD YOUR SHOE CLOSET
One style does not fit all. When you’re dressing up you need smart lace-ups, for weekends pick plimsolls, big nights are times for polished leather loafers, and winter means chunky soled boots. Oh wait, we forgot trainers!
#4 WORK THE TAILORED PIECES
From crisp shirts and sharp trousers to fitted blazers, tailored pieces are must-haves in every man’s wardrobe. For days when you just need to be spruced up, or when you want to turn up in first-impression gear. Gosling is often experimental with his suits and tuxedoes and doesn’t shy away from playing with colours. Try it.
