How To Get Justin Bieber’s Style

The Bieb, Beebs, or JBiebs – Justin Bieber is one of the most loved on (and hated) people on the planet.

The singer has learned the pitfalls of too-much fame (Bieber’s legion of Facebook fans is 72 million strong) and the barrelling judgment that rides with it. But he’s managed to stay above the waterline; moving on from childish and cocky to confident in what he believes – and wears.

The teeny-boppin’ Canadian has certainly moved on from side-fringes and baggy jeans to the grown-up stuff like Balmain jackets and tattoos; such much so he scored prime position in the new Calvin Klein underwear campaign.

But remember, he’s still only 21.

Breaking It Down

Young, cool and super cashed-up, Bieber has cruised along this past year. Far from being a one-look wonder, Bieber romps around music awards, LA parties and fashion week like a natural, rubbing shoulders with the Kanye‘s of the celebrity fashion world; gathering more attention for his clothes than the taste-makers themselves.

Off-duty, the popstar is just as luxe – walking around in fash-ed up loungewear or casual jackets, underpinned by leather look jeans and $700 sneakers. Statement head gear is a Bieber thing too; snapping back a reversed cap or felt fedora depending on his ‘scene’. But with a new bleached undercut, hats could just be a thing of the past for Biebs. What do you mean?

Street Biker

In keeping with his hybrid style, Bieber looks the ‘street biker’ in a statement leather jacket and urban bottoms For his 21st birthday in Los Angeles, Bieber went monochrome with a motocross jacket in stark white – the black epaulettes and forearm ribbed padding offering a safeguard against the night’s proceedings perhaps.

At Kanye West’s fashion show, Bieber was seeing red with a sharper leather biker cut like a dinner jacket with asymmetric zip and metallic hardware. Both looks bounced along in a longline plain tee and relaxed-fit black denim; the latter with tapered ankles cinched in nicely to expose the statement kicks. Ye-ezy!

Rocked-Out Suits

RockedSuits

By rocked-out suits, we mean traditional tailoring getting a restyling by the popstar. At the Met Gala, Bieber kept to the China-theme, dressing in a dinner jacket in black wool and contrast satin lapel – the fire-breathing dragons embroidered in bronzed gold in true eastern mysticism. A weave cummerbund in black lined the waist, before the trouser went thin (like denim) coming in at the ankle – super rock – over suede Chelsea boots.

Other times, Bieber takes common tailoring  – the double-breasted suit – and makes it rock-esque; mastering the art of the sleeve roll. The short sleeve works off the relaxedness of the normally-sharp suit; the openness of the broad peak lapel in velour parring back formalities. By keeping the finer details – shoes, tie and shirt – neat and nice, the suit ensemble never looks sloppy; despite breaking the style code.

Luxury Hipster

Layered

Justin – like most twenty somethings – has many a casual look. And on-trend, hipster-y things feature: loads of white-on-black-on-white, longline tees and cotton check over-shirts – for the very best in urban and rock styles.

But Bieber works his own luxury accent with expensive jewellery, molten black denim (going anti-hipster with the cuff unrolled) and slip on sneakers in a mix of ponyskin prints – leopard or cheetah – ignoring the hipster uniform of Nike Roshe runs, barbershop hair and bushy beard. Can he even grow one?

Active Futurism

ActiveFuturism

Bieber likes activewear, obviously. But his taste for easy-go clothing doesn’t forgo his salivating over luxury kit, which sees him experiment with technical fabrics for a future-forward approach to fashion.

Unusual proportions are another way Bieber dresses futuristically. A super longline t-shirt and army hi-top sneakers offer an urban look when paired under a sharp dinner jacket in army green – again sleeves rolled. The olive hue continues onto the relaxed denim with ribbed signatures acting as a galactic accent on the knees, again reverting to future times.

Monochrome black casual wear becomes forward-thinking with baggy-ish track pants in leather and bold zips with a basic tee getting a satin collar rewiring at the neck; the outfit turned contemporary with luxury white sneakers.
