The age of Beckham and Gosling are slowly being eclipsed by the next generation of style superstars. From Hollywood celebrities to influencers, these are the men (and teens) that have managed to find a voice in the fashion industry, and if we’re being real, they are killing the style game. Admittedly they probably all have stylists, but if you’re after some inspiration, grab a pen and paper because these are the people you should follow.
Rising stars seem to come and go, but after a breakout performance in ‘Call Me By Your Name’, and his effortless style, this 23-year-old has made his mark in refined fashion. If the 2019 awards season was anything to go by, his style cues particularly on the red carpet are an expert fusion of wardrobe staples and bold trend pieces – does anyone remember the Louis Vuitton glitter harness?
More street style than red carpet, here’s an influencer that isn’t generic. Luka Sabbat is a 21-year-old who has built up a following of 1.9 million users and counting. His bold style and ability to layer is next level. By pairing luxury pieces with more accessible brands, the young style mogul has made a name for himself with a nonchalant attitude and an epic wardrobe he never wears twice.
So you could argue that Romeo has an unfair advantage in the style game – his family are known for their cult style as well as their long line of fashion labels and riches. After modelling for Burberry at a young age, Romeo combines grunge, street and preppy pieces and often opts for a varsity-inspired wardrobe.
Once again, another screen production has influenced the fashion industry. ‘Stranger Things’ blew up Netflix – the eighth season was a tear jerker – and as result, everyone is looking toward the ’80s era for style suggestions. McLaughlin did just that and took the style from screen to the street and onto the red carpet. By keeping it simple and teaming small style elements from an era, you can make any left-of-field item, wearable and multi-purpose.
Grandson of the iconic Bob Dylan, Levi is not using his fame as leverage. Making a name for himself the 23-year-old is making waves in the modelling and fashion industry alike, with the help of a great wardrobe. He’s not one to boast his life on social media and with a humble 14,000 followers, if you want it ‘real’, take cues from Dylan.
It is known all too well that rappers’ style can be a little left-of-field and unattainable. But Lil Yachty knows how to up the game. The recent Creative Director of Nautica, knows how to appeal to the masses while keeping it uniquely his. To follow Lil Yachty’s approach, stick with colours that compliment each other and don’t over do it. Act confident and no one will question you.
