FashionHow to dress like Donald Glover

Words by Nathan Irvine

Hollywood's number one style chameleon is capable of owning any look. Here's how you can achieve his effortless fashion sense.

Donald Glover is one of those people that manages to look slick in any outfit he wears. Sure, he’s probably got a dozen designers curating every look, but he just has a way of looking cool in whatever he wears.

Whether it’s rocking a mauve suit to the MET Gala or tearing up the stage as his alter-ego Childish Gambino in a garish Hawaiian shirt and shorts combo – Glover is a modern fashion icon.

Here’s how you can get the Donald Glover look for your everyday occasions…

The 70s Cop Show Look

It’s amazing how a leather jacket can lift a regular shirt and trouser combo to something completely different. Glover’s grey trousers and smart baby blue shirt is elevated by this somewhat retro jacket.

Perfect for: The office

Key piece: The leather jacket

Try this: Plain leather jacket from Herno

The Childish Gambino

Glover’s alter ego is either shirtless, like in This is America, or open shirted. The key is to go as colourful as possible. Muted, plain pieces simply won’t carry the same authority. Go big and bold, and own this look.

Perfect for: A casual brunch

Key piece: Short-sleeved shirt

Try this: Revere collar shirt with tiger print from AllSaints at ASOS

The Ribena suit

One of the more recent, classy shots of Donald Glover is the above taken at the swanky MET Gala 2018. The suit is a throwback style to the late 60s/early 70s and the ruffles remind us of Austin Powers. But Glover’s bravery to pick out a mauve variant is what makes this a standout number.

Perfect for: A wedding. Your own, or simply attending one.

Key piece: The bold coloured suit

Try this: Mauve windowpane patterned suit from Paul Smith

The golf course chic

Just look at him. Donald Glover has the look of a man that just knows he’s killing the fashion game right now without really trying. Red trousers are no longer just for upper class farmers in rural parts of the UK, Glover brings them back to the masses with a smart polo shirt finisher.

Perfect for: Date night

Key piece: Knitted polo shirt

Try this: Classic polo shirt from Tommy Jeans at Namshi

The attention to detail look

There’s a lot going on with this outfit. It might not seem it at first, but Glover has carefully crafted this look with the perfect contrasts of dark blues and whites. The sunhat might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it tops off a look that could and should be found swaggering around the top deck of a boat party.

Perfect for: Boat parties or beach club sundowners

Key piece: Sneakers

Try these: Ace sneakers by Gucci

The playful one

Living up to the “Childish” side of his alter ego, Donald Glover proves that fashion doesn’t have to be po-faced. It’s a double-dose of Donald with the cartoon duck adorning a fairly garish Gucci cardigan. Put together with a plain black tee, and leather train driver cap, the look works a treat.

Perfect for: Frequenting a lounge bar

Key piece: Cardigan

Try these: Bees and stars knit cardigan by Gucci
