Despite evoking a heart murmur in 95% of women across the globe in 2004 when The Notebook earned a place in the ultimate chick-flick hit list, it wasn’t until some of his later work that Ryan Gosling began turning heads for his style. Country boy charm aside, he’s become the king of casual – and of being topless, many may argue. If you’ve not got the sculpted abs or the rugged innocence of the blonde bombshell, don’t stress. You can still channel your inner Gosling with some carefully selected outfits.
Between his bad boy film persona of Gangsta Squad and Drive and his suited-and-booted, jazz-loving charm of La La Land, Ryan Gosling has snuggled his fine torso into a true style identity. Effortlessly cool laced with all-American nostalgia, Ryan’s go-to white tee, bomber jacket and jeans is a great place to start with your wardrobe reinvention a-la-Gosling. Opt for a design as fuss-free as possible, in an earthy brown or simple black for maximum impact. Then go for a tapered jean or chino, and command the 50s aviator look with an urban utility boot.
Often seen breaking the formal-wear norm, Gosling loves the modest no-tie look. An enviable sleeve-roll and a confident hands-in-pockets stance finishes off a pair of slacks and dress shoes, while a textured blazer beats the chill and ticks off that hint of vintage retro that’s oh so Ryan. A lover of detail, a more formal Gosling-channel calls for a slightly out-there suit shade, with unique embellishment aplenty. Think bow ties, peaked lapels and 1920s style notes.
If you’re looking to add a little touch of hearthrob to an existing look, try pairing a textured suit with tortoiseshell round-framed glasses – with clear lenses if you’re feeling daring. If not, opt for sunglasses of a similar style, to add an air of mysterious nonchalance to your white tee outfit. You can also give your looks a hint of the RG with some kooky footwear. A white loafer or a monochrome brogue will turn heads for all the right reasons.
