When it comes to your personal style, who do you seek inspiration from? Chances are that like many others, it’s probably one of your favourite celebrities. Whether they work in fashion or not, we often look to those in the public eye to see what they’re wearing and how they’re wearing it. So how can we dress like our favourite celebs?
We’ve taken a few pointers from some of the best dressed gents in showbiz.
Good ol’ David. He’s a bit of a national treasure isn’t he? Though most of his skills lie in his footwork, he certainly knows how to present himself and alongside his wife Victoria, you’ve got yourself a fully fledged power couple. One thing that we love about Becks, however, is that he’s not afraid of experimenting. Over the years we’ve seen him sport more hairstyles than there are days of the week, and though some worked better than others, he’s certainly got his own look.
Get the look: One thing for sure, is that Becks knows how to work a suit, however I think we love his off duty style even more. Blending tailoring with more laid back items, David looks effortlessly cool in almost anything he wears. Black is a running theme within his wardrobe, so you can easily achieve his look by pairing wardrobe staples such as a leather biker jacket with some black skinnies. Complete the look with a pair of brown Derby boots.
He’s one of the biggest names in pop, with fans hanging off his every word and move, so it’s no surprise that Justin Bieber has become quite the fashion icon. His look is youthful and on trend, so he’s definitely one to watch for the younger market. Oversized clothing is a running theme throughout his wardrobe, completing each look with a fresh pair of kicks.
Get the look: To steal Justin’s look, opt for oversized silhouettes and distressed finishing. He’s a big fan of camouflage print and is frequently seen sporting it in the form of a jacket, sweatpants or even a full matching tracksuit. Create a wearable Justin inspired look by layering a camo hoodie over the top of an oversized tee and distressed jeans. Complete with a baseball cap and trainers.
Love it or hate it, Lewis Hamilton’s style is certainly unique. The race-car driver is never afraid to experiment and over the years he has become a regular fixture on the men’s fashion week circuit, alongside the likes of David Gandy and Oliver Cheshire. We believe he lives by the mantra “the bolder the better”, as his outlandish style is generally made up of striking prints and vibrant colours. Bomber jackets and distressed jeans are staple pieces within his wardrobe and he’s rarely seen without his signature shades.
Get the look: If you’re feeling brave you can steal Lewis’ look by marrying a statement jacket with some distressed jeans and high top trainers. Layer over a simple t-shirt to save the outfit from looking OTT and don’t forget the sunglasses!

Not one to shy away from a bold print, Tinie Tempah is at no risk of blending into the crowd and over the years he has made almost as big a name for himself for his vibrant sense of style, as he has for his music. Determined to express a bit of his personality and showmanship in what he wears, Tinie loves a bit of a sheen in his clothes and is drawn to items that are truly unique.
Get the look: Tinie Tempah has a wonderfully individual sense of style that combines colourful street wear with preppy geek chic items. Create the perfect day to day Tinie inspired outfit by blending tailoring with casual pieces and an urban finishing touch.
David Gandy simply oozes sophistication and there are few men who look so polished no matter the occasion. Blessed with chizzled good looks, it’s as though he was simply born to wear a suit and one of his signature looks just so happens to be the mixed up three piece, throwing in the occasional curveball velvet dinner jacket to mix it up from time to time. His off duty looks are equally as well delivered however, pairing quality cashmere knitwear with tailored chinos and a leather jacket.
Get the look: David Gandy’s style is very traditional, channeling an old fashioned English gentleman in his evening and off duty looks. Steal his look by marrying a crisp white shirt with a checked suit to keep your look smart, yet unique.
