Gentleman’s style is not an older man’s game anymore as young actors and stars are showing themselves to be just as stylish as their more mature colleagues. We’ve put together a list of our top 5 style icons under 30 to show that even younger men can pull-off the gentleman’s look without it aging you.
5) Daniel Radcliffe
Following the end of the Harry Potter franchise there was much speculation about where Radcliffe’s talents would take him next or whether he would be forever typecast in his iconic schoolboy role. Luckily for everyone his determination and work ethic made him a roaring success in the theatre, as his roles in Equus and The Cripple of Innishmaan brought him critical acclaim and success. However, his style also matured with him as he grew from a small bespectacled boy into a suave young man, dressed in immaculate tailoring. His use of colours and patterns in his outfits is subtle yet powerful and reflect his character perfectly, certainly an icon for anyone pursuing a youthful look.
4) Bruno Mars
A musical sensation and worldwide phenomenon, Bruno Mars has become one of the top names in pop music and even performed in this year’s half-time Superbowl show. His hits include “Lazy Song”, “Runaway” and “Locked out of Heaven”, all of which are as catchy as they are light-hearted. His sense of style is unrivaled in pop with his contemporary-retro looks filling magazines and fashion sites everywhere. If you want to put together a vintage look with eye-catching details we suggest you follow Bruno’s fashion choices.
3) Chris Colfer
Colfer became a sensation when his role as Kurt saw him both musically and emotionally representing an entire audience of fans, in the hit series Glee. What is more astonishing is his gay rights activism which has seen both him and his role represent millions of gay fans across the globe, as a result his influence and awareness campaigns have promoted sexual equality across the globe. Colfer’s intelligence and charm is reflected in his outfits that often incorporate elements of tailoring into an otherwise smart/casual outfit, instantly making them sharp and clean-cut. A worthy role model for any gentleman.
2) Michael B Jordan
With roles in the comedy “That Awkward Moment” and the thriller “Chronicle” Michael B Jordan has already become something of a rising star in many Hollywood circles, whilst his role in “The Wire” ensured he became a household name overnight. A young and charismatic man, Jordan’s dapper style shows in all of his outfits and even off the red carpet he is sure to look suave. For a young gentleman with an athletic figure, we highly recommend making Jordan your style icon.
1) Armie Hammer
Famous for his role as both Winklevoss twins in Aaron Sorkin’s “The Social Network”, Armie Hammer jumped into the fashion magazine presses across the world as an icon of young men’s style. Widely regarded as one of the nicest actors in Hollywood and having starred alongside acting greats like Johnny Depp and Leonardo Di Caprio, he is already becoming something of a Hollywood star. His fashion sense meanwhile has gone from strength-to-strength, incorporating elegant tailoring, dapper themes and sophisticated details to create a perfect gentlemanly style. We look forward to seeing much more of Armie Hammer’s work and dress-sense in the future.
