The 16 Best Dressed Men of 2016

It’s that time of year again.

Well don’t worry; we’re here to help you fill the void. What better time than now to take a look back at 2016’s best dressed men to get you back on your feet and style-inspired for the new year ahead. No problem at all, you’re welcome.

Donald Glover
Otherwise known by his stage name Childish Gambino, Donald Glover definitely didn’t just sit around watching Netflix this year. In 2016 alone he has released a new studio album, launched an app, premiered a TV show and been cast in the upcoming Spiderman film. And he did it all looking infuriatingly smart and polished.

Dao-Yi Chow
Together with Maxwell Osborne, Dao-Yi Chow stepped down this year from his role as co-creative director at DKNY. After having injected an oversized streetwear vibe to the brand which is mirrored in their own company Public School, the pair are now fully concentrated on their own project. Chow is pictured here at the Public School show after party at New York Fashion Week owning a big old scarf and leather jacket.

Dev Hynes
Dev Hynes, singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, released his latest album Freetown Sound this year under his stage name Blood Orange. Received to critical acclaim, the album was praised for its combination of R&B vibes and politically charged lyrics, just as Hynes’s dress style has also become more rebellious in recent times.

Rafferty Law
Looking more and more like his dad every year, Jude Law’s son differentiates himself with a creative, street-style inspired wardrobe. Pictured here at the Dolce & Gabbana show at Milan Fashion Week he’s tapped into 2016’s bomber trend and proves that he never leaves the house without a bit of bling.

Ryan Reynolds
When he’s not wearing a skin-tight onesie and battling mercenaries, Ryan Reynolds scrubs up pretty well. Earlier this month he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contribution to the film industry and he arrived in a dapper pea coat and waistcoat combo perfect for the occasion.

James Bay
With three Grammy nominations and a real life Brit Award, 2016 has been another good year for this fedora-loving musician. His style remains understated and cool in a British rock star kind of way and we actually do quite like the permanence of the hat.

Frank Ocean
Normally one to keep himself to himself, Frank Ocean recently gave his first interview in nearly three years after pairing a crisp navy suit with some Vans slip-ons for a visit to the Whitehouse. Stating, “You can’t think, you just gotta do things” he explained that dressing for him is all about feeling right and not overthinking his choices. Nice swerve Frank, keep it real.

John Boyega
This time last year John Boyega exploded onto the scene after having bagged a lead role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Since then he’s launched his own production company and made regular public appearances in well fitted tailoring worn with an effortless ease.

Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf is certainly not one to shy away from expressing his individuality. He manages to pull off the scruffy arty look and has proven this year that he can scrub up nicely too. Posing here at the Cannes Film Festival following the release of American Honey, he nails the laid-back formal look complete with a summertime bare ankle.

Robert Pattinson
Robert Pattinson has long since ditched the teen wardrobe and pasty complexion of his Twilight days. Now he’s known for his experimental style attitude and serious film roles. Even with those shades on we recognised him at LAX in October nailing the casual look.

Pep Guardiola
With an unbeaten run at the start of his season with Man City this year, Guardiola is just as suave on the pitch as he is off it. 2016 has seen him at the top on the league and on the front of the October edition of Spain’s GQ magazine in celebration of his elegant style.

 

Young Thug, New York Concert, 20th Dec 2016: Photo by MediaPunch/REX/Shutterstock

Young Thug
Young Thug, or Jeffery Lamar Williams to his mum, is forward-thinking and charismatic in both his music and his fashion sense. As part of the #MyCalvins SS16 campaign he said: “In my world of course you could be a gangsta with a dress or you could be a gangsta with baggy pants” highlighting his liberal gender-free fashion values.

Luka Sabbat
Pictured here at the Kenzo Show at Paris Men’s Fashion Week back in June, Luka Sabbat is the epitome of cool – and he’s still not even turned 20. With an oversized tee tucked into belted trousers, his accessories are spot on and he’s working his signature curly barnet. We’re looking forward to what this young model type creative entrepreneur will have in store for us next year.

Lucky Blue Smith
Lucky Blue Smith is classic American cool with a platinum blonde head of hair framing a chiselled face. Not that we’re jealous or anything. He arrived at the Saint Laurent menswear collection show at LA’s Palladium in February with his hair looking understated and an edgy rock-inspired outfit.

Charlie Casely-Hayford
After having founded the international menswear brand Casely-Hayford with his father Joe Casely-Hayford OBE, the young designer’s career has advanced with sartorial leaps and bounds. Practicing what he preaches he never misses an opportunity to get suited and booted.

Rocco Ritchie
Whilst the son of Madonna and Guy Ritchie might have had a bit of a hard time this year, at least according to the media, he has also emerged as a style icon. With a rough and ready skate image, he recently became the face of the Adidas Originals and Alexander Wang 2016 collaboration.
