DT Style Guide: Leonardo DiCaprio’s on-set style

dt style guide leonardo dicaprios on set leonardo1

We’re aware that a tech site probably isn’t your go-to source for advice about style, but just in case you don’t have a source for style at all (we’re looking at you, Mark Zuckerberg), we thought we’d bring it all together for you. A dose of good style advice never hurt anyone, and this is the lifestyle section after all. The point is that whether you dress up or down in your everyday life, you can always look good. We’re here to help you find some pieces to make getting dressed in the morning a little bit easier and a little more stylish.

We know that J. Edgar actor Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t have the best record with street style — we’ve seen him in too many baggy sweatshirts and sloppy baseball caps, but he certainly cleans up nicely. This casually-cool and sharp look comes from when the A-list actor shot a commercial in Paris for a Chinese cell phone company. As bizarre as that scenario sounds, this outfit would fit on a million different men in a million different situations. It’s perfect for date night, a stroll through the city, or a day at the office. Every element is classic so you won’t be left with a trendy item come next fall.

There are two reasons that every guy should have some kind of trench coat in their closet. The first is that they never, never, never go out of style. You might spend a little more on a trench coat than you would on a casual jacket from the mall, but trust us, it will last you. Secondly, they make you look cool regardless of what else you’re wearing (within reason). Throw it over a pair of jeans, a suit, or a casual weekend outfit and you’ll have a great jacket if it rains and some extra cool-factor even if it doesn’t. We like the simple style and muted color of this version by D&G Dolce & Gabbana ($1,565). 

Black pants

If you don’t already have a great pair of black trousers in your closet, it’s about time you invest in a good pair. Something like these flat-front cotton-blend Ralph Lauren Black Label trousers ($265) will take you from the office to an evening out with no need to change. 

Blue shirt

We’re assuming you probably already have a blue button-down or two in your closet since it tends to be a guy-favorite and an easy choice, but in case you don’t, here’s a good one. The J.Crew Washed Oxford Shirt ($70) offers classic styling with a relaxed fit and fabric choice. Roll up the sleeves for an easy casual look. 

Leather belt

This outfit is built on classics and the belt is no exception. Opt for something black and simple to keep with the clean lines of everything else you’re donning. This Gucci Leather Belt ($285) has simple styling all around and will work with almost anything in your wardrobe. 

Black oxfords

These don’t have to be dress shoes, but go for something black with laces and simple details. No need to go overboard with shiny brogues or dress shoes if that’s not your style. Having a basic black oxford like this in your wardrobe will be invaluable for a multitude of situations. We like the B Store Mario Derby Shoes ($330).
