Once with noodles on his head and experimental clothes, now with a trendy parting and perfectly tailored suits or comfortable chinos. Justin Timberlake’s style has evolved and is now worth emulating.
Justin Timberlake – from Mickey Mouse Club to superstar
on January 31, Justin Timberlake turned 40 years old. His career began when he was just 11 years old – he joined the “Mickey Mouse Club,” Disney’s music program that was a forge for talent (like him, his later great love Britney Spears participated in the club, but also Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling).
At the age of 14, he formed the boy band *NSYNC, and after another seven years and three released albums, he set his sights on a solo career, and as you can see, it has paid off handsomely. Each of his albums has been a huge success, and for some of the songs he has invited famous guests such as Timbaland, T.I. and will.i.am, Mariah Carey, Nelly or Jay-Z, among others.
Justin Timberlake is not only a singer and songwriter, but also an actor and entrepreneur. Among other things, he founded a music label,
Moreover, he is considered to be one of the best-dressed artists. He had already dealt with the world of fashion in 2005, when he and a friend presented the William Rast clothing line, which included corduroy jackets, polos or jeans. Then in 2018, he collaborated with Levi Strauss & Co, resulting in the Fresh Leaves collection, and with Nike.
Privately, Timberlake has been in a long-term relationship with Jessica Biel, with whom he lived to see two sons.
How has Justin Timberlake’s style evolved?
Undoubtedly, we all remember the oxidized curls on his head, which resembled noodles from Chinese soups, and many strange hairstyles, to say the least. He also once had a weakness for colored glasses and earrings. I think everyone remembers his denim total look from 2001, when he appeared with Britney Spears at the American Music Awards gala in Los Angeles.
With his age and his life and work experience, his style has evolved and is now imitated by many men around the world. Justin is a perfect example that style and good taste can be earned.
Now his style is based on classic elements. He likes plaid shirts and hats, with which he is still associated today. Additionally, he more often chooses muted shades in his outfits, for example with red accessories. Each time he skillfully combines casualness with elegance. He abandoned experimenting with fashion in favour of perfectly tailored suits, jackets, leather jackets and trainers, and classic glasses (usually corrective).
Fashion by Justin Timberlake – what to incorporate into your outfits
As we have already mentioned, style can simply be learned, as Justin Timberlake’s example shows. You also need to follow the principle of being fashionable, but above all comfortable. And it is not all about worn-out jeans and hoodies.
A plaid shirt, for example, can be worn every day with different pieces, such as a sweater or a button-down cardigan, a leather jacket or a blazer. In warmer weather, roll up the sleeves for a lighter, more casual look.
When it comes to outerwear, there is of course the classic leather jacket, which can be matched with almost any outfit. Justin is also seen wearing a short trench, which is also a good and comfortable choice, because you don’t have to worry about it creasing after leaving the car or sitting for a long time.
Timberlake has never shied away from accessories. As in the past he did not choose them very skillfully, now he shows that they can emphasize the whole look and complete it. If you do not dare to wear a hat, opt for a safer helmet. Remember also about the scarf – when the everyday outfit is rather monochromatic, it is a good element which can brighten up the whole look.
Justin also often chooses fabric pants with pockets, which are soft, loose and very comfortable. He also adds moccasins, half-shoes or, for a change, sports shoes. This outfit can be styled and changed as needed.
If you wear glasses, they should fit your face – not too small, not too big and in a classic color, unless the frames are supposed to be your ‘style accessory’. The look is completed by an elegant parting of the hairstyle.
