In this new edition of Airport Attire, I am using Ryan Gosling and Jake Gyllenhaal as references as to how guys should dress when traveling.
Ryan Gosling is a great example of being fashionable while traveling. He took clues from his latest film project, Drive, where he stars alongside Carey Mulligan. Here is an image of his wardrobe on the set:
Notice the V-neck white button up shirt and leather driving gloves as well as the dark sunglasses. Ryan emulates this same look at the airport in these images:
Here we see Ryan is wearing a similar white V-neck shirt underneath a gray cardigan and suede brown zip up jacket. He wears leather driving gloves just like his character, as well as dark sunglasses. His sunglasses are a tortoise shell frame, which nicely complements his jacket. Ryan also wears grayish-green colored leather shoes, similar to his off white shoes from set.
He looks extremely put together. However, when looking at the actual items he's wearing, they are nothing you couldn't find in your own closet. Most of this outfit is basics. If you don't have a suede jacket, wear another zip up jacket instead. The leather shoes could easily be substituted with boots.
Jake Gyllenhaal is casually dressed in his latest travels through the airport. Here we see him wearing nothing more than a T-shirt and jeans.
To add a level of sophistication to this outfit, Jake wears Ray Ban wayfarer sunglasses. In my opinion, Ray Bans can make anyone look good. There are such a wide variety of styles that are able to fit every face perfectly. Jake slightly tucks in his shirt in the front, showing his brown leather belt which matches his brown leather shoes. Guys: Belts do help in fashion! If you have a keen eye, you will have noticed that Ryan Gosling is also wearing a belt above.
This is a very simple outfit on Jake but still looks great.
Hope this helps you stay fashionable as Holiday traveling is right around the corner!
