The style lessons you can learn from Leonardo DiCaprio

Learn from the best of the best

As one of the most photographed gentlemen in the world, there’s a certain pressure on Leonardo DiCaprio to look slick and stylish at all points. No matter what he’s doing or where he’s going, DiCaprio has a knack for keeping his outfits so on-point that he’s become one of the most stylish icons of our time. So what can we learn from him?

The importance of a tuxedo

Although you might only wear it on occasion, you shouldn’t ever rent a tuxedo. It won’t do you any justice because it’s not going to be tailored to fit you and the one key to looking good in any kind of suit is to having it made to measure. It’s an investment that’ll undoubtedly cost you a pretty penny but if it’s the only one you’re ever going to wear, it’s a cost that makes sense. Leo is the perfect example of the importance of wearing a suit that fits, so follow his lead.

Never fear the blue suit, either

It’s very easy to stick to ‘normal’ colours when it comes to suiting, but DiCaprio proves that there’s something to be said for raising the bar and going for something a little bit different. If you have to wear a black suit everyday for work, why would you invest in the same for special occasions? Go for a rich blue or a deep red to ring the chances and get you noticed – in the best way possible.

That you can wear trainers with your suit

Wearing a suit with trainers is one of the best things you can do for your personal style, and something that far too many gentlemen fear. The reality is that if you’ve nailed your choice of suit and your trainers are perfectly matched, you’re going to look seriously stylish. Don’t go for anything clumpy or old and try and go for a pair whose colour will complement your suit – blue and black will work best.

How to vary your accessories

Choosing an array of different accessories is essential to mix up your wardrobe and elevate your style. DiCaprio proves that never sticking to just one and always changing it up is the perfect way to keep things interesting when it comes to your outfits. Whether it’s a cap, a pair of sunglasses or the perfect style, he knows what to wear, when to wear it and how to make it work.
