Dress Like Timothée Chalamet With These 5 Wardrobe Essentials
Borrowed from the boys.
Known for his brilliant performance in movies including Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird, Beautiful Boy and his latest, Little Women, Timothée Chalamet is lauded not only for his work as an actor, but also for his effortless-meets-fashion-forward sense of style — with Vogue naming him “the most influential man in fashion” earlier this year. The rising star, who just turned 24 years old on December 27, isn’t one to shy away from bold sartorial choices. From the Louis Vuitton harness he wore to the 2019 Golden Globes and the silver-gray Haider Ackermann suit he picked for the Venice Film Festival red carpet, to his love for cozy sweaters — did you see him in the pink Glossier hoodie? — and fashionable kicks, his personal style is on point.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up five wardrobe essentials that make up Chalamet’s impeccable style.
1. Black Ankle Boots
Style lesson number one from Timmy: boots are more fun than a regular pair of dress shoes. Instead of oxfords, the actor almost always completes his tailored looks with some sleek, black leather ankle boots. Go for a slanted Cuban heel to achieve the full effect.
2. Gold Chains
If you’ve been style-stalking Chalamet for a while now, you’ll probably know that he loves wearing a gold chain necklace. Whether on the red carpet or off-duty, suited up or dressed in a slouchy, oversized sweatshirt, the star proves that a simple jewelry piece can tie any look together.
3. Kitschy Sweaters
Apart from hoodies, Chalamet seems to gravitate towards sweaters designed with kitschy prints. From Supreme‘s cherries crewneck to an eagle-themed Gucci knit top, to a hole detail jumper by Raf Simons as pictured above, the actor sure knows how to turn a grandpa-style sweater into a fashion statement.
4. Bold Suits
From a fuchsia women’s suit by Stella McCartney, to a Virgil Abloh-designed red tonal look from Louis Vuitton, to a floral two-piece from Alexander McQueen, Chalamet’s suit looks are never dull. To steal his style, vibrant colors and head-turning patterns are the way to go.
5. Not Your Average Sneakers
In case you haven’t noticed, Timothée Chalamet’s shoe game is pretty strong. His sneaker rotation, which includes silhouettes such as the A.P.C. Spencer, the chunky-soled Stella McCartney Eclypse and the Gucci Ultrapace, is low-key yet speaks volumes about his taste level.
