celebrity style

Celebrity Men’s Style is 90% of my Instagram feed.

Celebrity Men’s Style is a God send. Even as a stylist, I have days when I wake up with no idea what to wear. What do I do when lacking inspiration?  Look to the stars! I check Instagram hashtags to see what my favorite stylists and celebrities are wearing.

Then– I recreate the look with something similar in my closet!

This week, I featured four looks that you can recreate with pieces from Gotstyle.


Eddie Redmayne

Eddie is one of my favorites because his off-duty looks are just as on point as his suiting. Denim over a sweater is one of those “try very little–look very good” tricks to keep in your style bank. Random fact: The UK actor wears a lot of Hardy Amies which we sell here at Gotstyle!

Kanye West

Can we just call him the king of overcoats? Kanye can pull out this same look every week and I’m impressed every time! We call that uniform dressing. Although it lacks creativity, when you get that uniform right, you continue to get it right–everytime.

Ryan Gosling

This guy is the reason the souvenir jacket blew TF up. Well, his Stylist… BUT he made certainly made it look good enough for anyone who likes fashion to grab. Gosling is a guys guy, nothing really trendy and almost always wearing a scoop neck white t-shirt. This look is really easy to achieve. I’m sure most guys have all these pieces at home already. Just add shearling!

Street Style Seen On Instagram

Regular people have great style too! I saw this snap on Instagram and was drawn to how his outfit manages to be electric and subtle at the same time. This is when something just works. The shawl collar is back again, can you tell it’s trending?

Love him or hate him, you can’t deny Kanye’s got a way with fashion. What’s the secret to his styling? When it comes to colours, he tends to stick with neutral ones like camel, black and khaki. The real magic happens when he makes bold moves and experiments with layering, textures like leather or velour. We highlighted some of the elements that make up Kanye’s style and created three looks for you showcased in the video below. Scroll down to see the breakdown of each outfit.

One element that we see in a lot of what Kanye wears is military inspired pieces, which means lots of army green and camo print. This jacket from Zadig & Voltaire with big cargo pockets is perfect, and the key is to go up a size so it’s not too structured. The final touch is the distressed denim. It adds a roughness to the outfit to contrast the jacket.

Kanye adds a lot of character in his outfits with oversized tees and distressed detailing. His outerwear does a lot of the talking so the Scrapes & Gravel bomber really channel that. The Vitaly tee adds some texture and is sized up to create the oversized look. What completes it is the Zanerobe’s ripped denim with a drop crotch.

The last things we want to highlight are statement outerwear and layering. Kanye knows how to put these two together. When it comes to outerwear, size up and/or choose one with length. The Rains jacket is ideal because its long and lightweight which makes it comfortable when wearing layers. This is crucial because layering is the ultimate key in Kanye’s style. Look for elongated tees that are also aren’t heavy in fabrication so wearing more than one doesn’t get too bulky. Try shirts from One Meth or Faded Lifestyle which are made of bamboo and cotton.

Celeb Style: Kayne West

December 31, 2011

Is there any guy who does modern American fashion as well as Kanye West?

Last week, we saw Sergio Pizzorno use style to express his creativity. This week, Kanye uses style to express his attitude by wearing fur, leather, bright colours, and stand-out trends to garner attention and show his confidence.

If nothing, every man can learn one important lesson from Kayne: fusion. Mix trendy leather pants with a classic fur coat. And why can’t you wear tuxedo jackets with high tops? Kanye does a great job of combining urban youthful pieces with luxury. The result is youthful, cool, and confident.

Ease into a Kanye-inspired look with some edgy eyewear like these Michael Kors eyeglasses.

In his own words, he says to “dress like you’re coming from somewhere, and you’ve got some place to go.” So tonight, when you’re getting ready for New Year’s Eve, keep this in mind.

His keen personal style has led him to a shoe collaboration with Louis Vuitton, eyewear collection with Ksubi, and an accessory collaboration with M/M Paris.

Dressing like ‘Nye requires confidence and self-assuredness. If you’ve got those, then all you need to do is dress with fusion and attitude.

 For formal events, he generally keeps it traditional with a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo and bow tie. Of course, the gold safety pin adds a touch of attitude and quirkiness to the look.
