Timothée Chalemet Is a Low-Key Style Icon—Here Are 7 of His Looks I'm Copying

While this story may have started out as an excuse to write about my lowkey obsession with Timothée Chalamet, I've actually become full-on inspired by his style risks at movie premieres and his luxe but cool looks he dons around NYC. My usual go-to for celebrity outfit inspiration is Bella Hadid, but I may be expanding to take cues from male stars like Chalemet because it's evident that he knows how to embrace the spectrum of style.

While many young male celebrities opt for the simplicities of a black tuxedo on the red carpet, Chalamet takes the extra mile with pops of bright hues. The star isn't pictured by paparazzi as often as others, but when he is, he's usually sporting top designers like Prada and Gucci, but fitting them effortlessly into his relaxed outfits that consist of joggers and sneakers. 

Below, I've rounded up all my favorite looks of the star that I can actually see myself recreating. And if there's anything to be said about 2020, it's that it gave a copious amount of Timmy content—from the Dune trailer to his GQ cover to his Saturday Night Live episode. Basically, it's Timothée Chalamet's world, and we're just living in it.

On Timothée: Haider Ackermann outfit

I'm not sure what I love more about this look: the monochromatic colors or the leather boots he tends to gravitate toward on the red carpet. Either way, I think I'm going to have to start braving bold colors soon.

On Timothée: Prada jacket; Adidas 3-Stripes Pants ($65); Celine sneakers 

While this seems like a typical athleisure ensemble, it isn't till you notice that the nylon jacket is Prada, and he paired trendy patterned socks with Celine sneakers. Talk about a subtle flex.

He doesn't post on Instagram often, but when he does, he's sure to start a trend. This makes me want to upgrade my basic white tops with colorful baggy jeans or trousers.

On Timothée: Stussy sweater

Timothée Chalamet wore a puffer vest, so I wore a puffer vest. On a real fashion note, puffer vests are trending increasingly high this winter. This outfit is simple and is exactly what I want to wear when it's cold out.

On Timothée: Gucci sweater, shirt, and loafers

When the best worlds collide. I know—technically, this Timothée acting as Harry Styles, but we have to admit, he pulls off that sweater and collar so well that I had to include it.

Here he makes yet another case for a monochromatic look, but also for corduroy which, I've been seeing more of on the fashion scene lately.

On Timothée: Saint Laurent jacket

For those days where you don't want to think too much about an outfit, pair a colored jacket over all-black basics.
