From how to wear high-waisted trousers (without looking like your granddad) to the power of a well-chosen pair of sneakers, here's what you need to know.
From: Esquire US.
While there's something to be said for playing with the proportions of your layers, please keep this in mind: everything in moderation. The low, scooped neck and extended length of Jencarlos Canelas' tee make for a more dress-like feel than most guys can get away with.
We're gonna call this look "health bro on the run." Efron seems like he's split between hitting the gym, lining up for the keg, or boarding a plane. If you're as famous and attractive as he is, you might be able to pull it off. Otherwise, it's probably best to stick to one style tribe at a time. (Two, tops.)
Carrey may be well into his 50s, but the guy's still tall and lean—which means that there's no good reason for his clothes to be a size too big. The bones are there, but this outfit would look a whole lot better if his jacket and pants were just a little bit slimmer.
If you're curious about how to wear a polo shirt while dodging its generally preppy vibe, just look to Hill for inspiration. The contrast placket and collar give it a little edge that works perfectly with an understated bomber and a hat from insider skate brand Palace.
The extra-strappy backpack may not be the height of restrained style, but the outfit itself certainly is. A great sweater, well-fitting jeans, and subdued chukkas are all you really need to stay stylish and comfortable while traveling.
Pastels can look dated and fussy when worn without a sense of humor. Clearly Tyler the Creator doesn't have that problem. If you feel the need for some robin's egg blue in your life, consider cribbing his easygoing attitude about color.
All in all, it's a pretty solid look. Hard to go wrong with navy, white, and brown. That said: This is not how you roll up your sleeves. Please make a note of it, Hugh.
Heartbroken? In all likelihood, yes. But at least Calvin's workout style is on point. The small details on the shirt are interesting instead of distracting, and the bright sneakers work well with the otherwise dark palette.
You may have heard: UK has different weather than the US. Which is why, we assume, ITV presenter Dermot O'Leary can wear that mackintosh jacket without overheating and passing out. Just a little pre-fall style inspiration to tide you over until things cool down.
The hat isn't exactly doing him any favors. And the contrasting color of his sweater where he's rolled up the sleeves is a little strange. But just look at Matthew McConaughey: He's having the best damn time at the Olympics. You do you, Matthew.
Last week we used Chris Pine as an example of the power of a classic white T-shirt. Here, we see what happens when you add another classic—the denim trucker jacket—to the mix. Dressing down never looked so good.
There's loose and easygoing—and then there's sloppy. Sadly, Joaquin's jeans fall firmly on the latter end of the spectrum. This is not, just to be clear, something to which you should aspire.
Without the hat, it's a damn fine outfit for traveling or pretty much any other endeavor. With the hat, it looks like he's seen that fedora kid video one too many times.
Justin Bieber loves to push the envelope when it comes to style. These shorts are what happens when he pushes it too far. The biggest issue is the width of the legs. If your shorts look like cut-off JNCOs, they're too loose.
With the exception of the pile of jewelry—which Snoop Dogg can wear and you and I should not—this is a very basic look. Until you reach the feet, that is. The shoes are part of Pharrell's collaboration with Adidas, and as Snoop demonstrates, should only be paired with solid, understated colours.
High-waisted trousers may seem imposing, but just check out Pine's look to get an idea of how they can work without feeling like a throwback. Keep the legs on the slim side, pair them with a patterned shirt and simple shoes, and you're good to go.
Sometimes you just need to ditch all the fancy stuff and get back to basics
There's more than one way to get it right.
They're not just for hitting the gym (anymore).
Essential picks that'll never go out of style.
