One of England’s finest exports, Jude Law has brought his classically British gentleman look stateside. He’s played a variety of roles from Russian sniper to Dr. Watson – yet only a few of these characters have had any real impact on his personal style. He has a charming, yet approachable appeal to his clothes that is casual enough for any occasion.
Here’s what we here at VK Nagrani have been able to glean from Hollywood icon Jude Law:
1. Blazer & Tee
Jude has a great eye for tees and blazers, as seen above. He approaches formalities with the idea that tailoring be sharp, comfortable and chic as hell. While he isn’t necessarily known for being an icon of fashion – he never looks bad. His outfits tend to consist of a quality cut jacket or luxury wool trousers.
The idea here is to maximize both look and comfort.
2. Go Bald in Style
Losing your hair isn’t something you can control, but how you handle it is well within your grasp. Jude is handling it with style. He likes to cover up the hairline every once and a while, but for the most part embraces it. When he does decide to don a headdress, he usually goes for a black beanie that is very Brooklyn in personality.
The beanie is emblematic of his cool and casual persona when worn with a suit (a well-tailored suit, obviously), but he dons the beanie equally well wandering around the boroughs on an autumn day layered with a cashmere cardigan, cotton tee, and bundled scarf close to the chest.
3. Leather Vintage
Like a young Marlon Brando or James Dean, Jude can take a simple look like the basic trouser/tee combination and make it sing. Heavy cotton or wool chinos add some heft to the ensemble and a tucked-in, muted gray V-neck complete the look.
But the real credit here goes to the leather jacket. Bomber style with ribbed hem and sleeves – modified to modernize and sharply bring the fit in. He looks ready to ride around like a rebel without a cause.
Jude Law’s appeal is that he is calm, cool and understated in fashion sense. Keep it bookmarked to the VK Nagrani Blog for more Lessons in Style editions.
