Andrew Garfield: Spidey Fashion Sense

Andrew Garfield: Spidey Fashion Sense

The current Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield is a current inspiration for mens fashion at the moment. His casual look consists of a slim pair of black/blue skinny jeans, usually paired with converses/trainers or preppy brogues. Whilst he pairs the jeans with a pop of a colourful shirt, a graphic tee or a chunky coat.

Whilst on the red carpets, Andrew never fails to impress. My favourite look is the Balenciaga suit he wore at the French Premiere. (Below), Andrew pairs this Spider-Man red suit with a pale blue shirt, which also has a pop of red under the blue making it suit perfectly. The use of no tie makes it more relaxed and cooler, because a tie would make it too much. The maroon brogues complete this outfit to create a perfect look, off the runway.

This other outfit (below) is very casual yet has the star look to it, due to the statement shirt, which really pops!
Andrew has paired the light red with a slim pair of dark blue jeans, and a simple pair of plimsolls. This outfit is perfect for a day out in the sun! Pair it with a pair of sunglasses and you’re good to go!

Another great way to create a smart/casual look is to look at Andrew’s next outfit. Here (below) he creates a preppy smart and chilled look in one. He pairs a smart navy blazer with a salmon pink shirt, creating a relaxed contrast between the colours. While he pairs it with a pair of blue skinny jeans and some edgy worn out converse, his personal style. This is a great way to dress down at work or even to wear on a night out. To sophisticate the outfit more, just pair the outfit with a nice pair of smarter shoes.

Overall, Andrew loves to keep it smart and sophisticated yet he looks cool in his casual gear. A great fashion role model in British fashion, and I think more British men will dress like him.

Like Andrew’s preppy yet casual look? Let me know! What’s your favourite outfit. Is he a style icon? Is he a good spider-man?

Ryan Gosling: Style Icon

Ryan Gosling: Style Icon

Ryan Gosling has certainly defined how every man should dress. From casual jeans and a tee to a blue tuxedo. He likes to try different styles, being defined as a Style Icon for Mens fashion of the 21st Century.

This suit (above) was worn by Ryan at the ‘Ides of March’ Premiere. The Olive coloured suit is so cool and special. Here his tie is matching the suit which looks very good, and the patterned design on the tie gives an edge to the already show-stopping suit! The use of black creates a sophisticated style and the white shirt makes it more casual and relaxed.

The suit (displayed above) where Ryan wore this suave brown suit at the premiere of ‘Gangster Squad’. Ryan, with his mother, shows off a three-piece suit, where the waistcoat looks great. Waistcoats are in trend and look good when matched with the suit. My favourite item here is the leather studded shoes, which is such a daring yet contemporary shoe. The shoe completes the outfit to make it a stand out piece of fashion.

The suit (above) worn by Ryan at the Crazy, Stupid, Love premiere is a unique take on the classic black suit. This time enhanced with silver threaded check all over the suit. The design comes across well in images.

The outfit (above) really represents the effortless style of Ryan Gosling. It’s very clean, casual and effortless. The stripy cardigan and black jeans gives off a casual look, whilst the rocker boots give a effortless take on a clean look. The sunglasses enhance his star image making him seem very cool and the chain around his neck adds some individual funk to his outfit, making it more interesting.

TIP: enhancing your style with little changes. From Ryan’s style we can see he likes to make a usual look, unusual (in a great way). He clearly understands fashion. Accessories are always a plus. Not too many, for example; a pair of sunglasses, a chain/necklace, a bracelet/watch or a cool ring. I also think the making traditional, untraditional is great also, like his studded shoes or a patterned tie. Never be afraid to think outside of the box and look at Ryan’s fashion for inspiration. I certainly have.

Fashion Must-Have

I believe that every man should have at least one item in their wardrobe and that is, Leather!

Leather is an essential which can be worn any time of the year. Whether it’s in the freezing conditions of Winter or even to wear on your way to a meal in the evening. I appreciate that Leather as I find it highly comforting, stylish and adaptable to change in any weather condition.

I think a must-have Leather item is the jacket. A Leather Jacket makes any outfit improved and gives a cool edge to an ordinary outfit. I have owned around 5 Leather jackets, and so less because they are so long-lasting! I still own a Leather Jacket which I had bought 4 years ago, which I regularly wear to spruce up my look.

This Leather Jacket (back&front below) is available to purchase from the ‘www.asos.com’ website, where they  have a collection of designer and high street price ranges. I specifically chose this jacket (ASOS Leather Bomber Jacket) as it defines how it can instantly create the effortless edge it aims to achieve. This is also a bomber jacket, so it will keep you dry in the rain, and won’t make you sweat like crazy on a summer evening. The price of this jacket is £110.00, which is a reasonable price as it is long lasting (if you take care of it). This is shown as worn in a casual look, a plain white tee or a graphic print top would also look good for an informal trip out. If you want to prep up the look, I would advise wearing a shirt and sweater combo (preferably a light shirt and a colourful sweater works better).

If you’re looking for a high designer label, ASOS also provide designer jackets. (Below) is another leather jacket, from the ‘Pepe Jeans’ designer. By the way, Leather does not limit you from wearing just the black kind. There are colours such as Brown, Tan, Maroon and Navy Blue Leathers which are just as cool.

If you would like some advice on how to style your leather jackets, whether it’s vintage, high street or designer, let me know. If both of these jackets are not your style, I encourage you to visit local high street stores or look online for a range of jackets in all sizes and shapes. A Leather Jacket can sophisticate, make casual or spruce up your clothing. I also encourage you to invest in a jacket which you can wear all year round and they attract much compliments. 

If you already have a Leather jacket, I recommend matching leather gloves, Zara Man sell brilliant quality leather gloves with different styles, so I recommend that also. I guarantee that Leather is a timeless piece of fashion, which will never go out of style!
