Ryan Gosling is one of those men that every woman wants and most men wouldn’t mind being. He’s subtle, dapper and very confident and seems to wear everything with effortless style. His greatest strength may be the fact that he is so unassuming, one immediately feels able to relate to him and the way he carries himself. We decode a few of his most iconic looks to show you how you too can look as good as Gosling.
Casual and Relaxed
We were introduced to Ryan via The Notebook, (don’t pretend your girlfriend hasn’t forced you to watch this) where he played a working-class guy in love with Rachel McAdams. Here his look was inspired by the time period, the 1940s so you’ll find lots of high waisted, relaxed fit trousers, layered t-shirts, flat top hats and suspenders. Though not ideal for every day wear, we love this look for its casual silhouette and easy going palette.
If you ever see pictures of Ryan walking down the street with his equally smoking wife Eva Mendes, you’ll often see the couple dressed down in jeans, t-shirts and leather boots. They seem to enjoy their rock n’ roll and it’s not hard to find Gosling in a leather jacket and black jeans. He pulls off this look elegantly and manages to look tailored with a touch of boho-chic. Don’t forget his now famous Barton Perreira prescription glasses to complete the look!
Gosling cleans up really well as his lean body type is a tailor’s dream. He doesn’t limit his choices to the usual navy blues and blacks and can be found on a red carpet rocking an electric blue or burgundy suit as well. He does enjoy adding a little eccentricity to his fashion and we admire him for that. Of course, this isn’t for everyone so the key is to find a suit that fits you well and is made of good quality fabrics. If you then want to explore the neon spectrum of colours, who are we to say no?
Gosling loves his basics so if you want to replicate his wardrobe you better find the hippest, trendiest boutique in town and raid their racks. Don’t leave without a few Henley shirts in solid colours and stripes, bomber jackets, leather boots and a pair of simple sunnies. Gosling’s style is more or less minimal so you don’t want to go over the top but enhance your look with effective accessories wherever you can.
