Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come a long way since being that awkward, quirky kid who-was-actually-an-alien in ‘3rd Rock From The Sun’. He upped his game when he starred in blockbusters such as ‘Inception’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing him in ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’, which is currently on the movie circuit. What Joseph has also upped in recent times is his style. Perhaps not at the top of the Most Stylish Men list and with a way to go before he reaches the style heights of James Dean and Nick Wooster, there is still a lot to be said for the simple understated style which Joseph throws out there.
Firstly, Joseph is not the largest or most athletic of guys and the fact that he understands how to dress his slender frame so well is a huge achievement in itself. A slender frame can be both a good and a bad thing but that’s a conversation for another time.
When donning casual-wear, Joseph keeps it simple with a pair of fitted jeans, trainers, t-shirt and some kind of pattern or pop of colour to mix things up. It’s a reasonably simple look to pull off stick to the classics. The bet thing about this look is that it is really easy to dress up by throwing on a blazer, cardigan, over-shirt to neaten things up.
When it comes to formal events, Joseph knows how to wear a suit and generally sticks to classic cut and colours – black, navy and blue. The suit, shirt and tie is a great combo and is tough to get wrong, whilst losing the tie will keep you looking sharp but relax the look.
Love him or hate him, Joseph is clearly doing something right and has been in GQ, Details and Esquire in the past and been on a couple of Band of Outsider campaigns. He’s on the right track to cementing himself as a modern Style Icon.
You stay classy,
