Everyone knows the name Will Smith. Over the past three decades this icon has evolved into one of the most highly acclaimed celebrities of our time. Smith has starred in numerous blockbuster features such as Hitch, Men in Black, I am Legend, Bad Boys, The Pursuit of Happyness, and Independence Day.
Will Smith is the only actor to have ever had eight films in a row gross more than $100 million dollars and open at the number one spot on the box office. He also made the Guinness Book of World Records in 2005 for attending three premieres in just twenty-four hours. With numerous awards behind him, and no doubt more in his future, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this man also has impeccable fashion sense.
Why Will Smith is a Style Icon
Whether he’s at a premiere for his latest movie or out on the town with his wife, son, and daughter, Will Smith always seems to look incredible. In fact, some could argue that he is one of Hollywood’s most fashionable men.
His style is almost effortless, and there’s good reason for it. He knows exactly what fashion rules to follow, with the most important and fundamental one being pretty basic, –find a style that works for you and stick to it. When Will played the wacky television character, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, he was cast wearing mismatched neon-coloured shorts, a graphic t-shirt, a sideways baseball cap, and an inside-out jacket, but not in real life.
Will Smith follows classic and sophisticated all the way. At his premieres, he is often seen wearing sleek dark suits like the Torquay suit from Brook Taverner, while elsewhere he often wears sporty sunglasses, leather jackets, and fitted V-neck sweaters with his jeans.

- Pair tweed jackets, such as the Salisbury from Brook Taverner with a pair of chinos and a v-neck sweater. This will help you achieve that sophisticated yet relaxed appearance Will Smith is so famous for.
- Don’t let your attire become boring- change it up! Remember that your tastes in style can be both imaginative and classic at the same time, so pair that unusual tie with a pastel shirt or place a hot pink pocket kerchief in the chest pocket of your black pinstripe double breasted suit like the Epsom suit from Brook Taverner.
