Timothee Chalamet, the young actor from Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name, has got a lot going for him at the moment. And we are not just talking about his much-talked-about Oscar nods for the two movies just mentioned. He is well on his way to becoming a legitimate style icon. Already, the baby-faced actor is considered one of the best-dressed individuals in the world of showbiz at the moment. His red carpet style statements have certainly made a lot of us sit up and take notice.
At just 22, his dressing shows a confidence and maturity way beyond his years, signified perfectly by the Hot Summer Nights Timothee Chalamet Jacket. He is talented, handsome, and dresses to impress.
Every now and then, you see unknown young actors burst onto the scene with good performances that hold the audience’s attention and everyone starts expecting big things from them. The same can be said about Timothee Chalamet, the bright-eyed New Yorker with an Academy Award nomination under his belt at the age of just 22.
“We’re only here for so long. Be happy, man. You could get hit by a truck tomorrow.”
A RARE TALENT :
Many consider him to be a once-in-a-generation kind of talent. And no, that is not an exaggeration and no one is getting carried away. When you happen to be the youngest actor to be nominated in an award category at the Oscars in 80 years history, you have either got some unbelievable clout in the industry or you really are very good and talented. Chances of the former happening to Timothee are negligible, so we have to assume he is really good at what he does. And, truth be told, he actually is.
Having started his acting career working in short films, Timothee first came to prominence when he appeared in the popular television drama series Homeland. His big screen debut came in Jason Reitman’s Men, Women, and Children. Not long after that, he was seen in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
Further prominent roles came in films like Lady Bird and Hot Summer Nights before his career-defining lead role in Call Me By Your Name, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in 2018.

A LEGITIMATE STYLE ICON :
He might just be 22 but Timothee Chalamet’s wardrobe is a lesson in style for men even much older than him. We bring you some tips on how to dress well and make heads turn everywhere you go.
USE YOUR BODY SHAPE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE :
You are probably at your most handsome in your 20s, and slim and slender too. Therefore, use it to your advantage, particularly when dressing formally. Timothee does it perfectly with the Timothee Chalamet Daniel Jacket. And you can always wear a slim-lapel skinny tuxedo with a stuffy bowtie, the perfect dress for a formal evening.
THE TRAINERS :
The 20s are arguably the best time to wear sneakers/trainers and look good doing that. Not that you shouldn’t do that once you turn 30 and beyond. But your 20s are great for that boyish look and trainers just add great style and charm to your dressing.
LET LOOSE EVERY NOW AND THEN :
You are allowed to let your hair down every now and then, and we don’t just mean it literally here. Freshen up your formal look by doing the following.
- Cropped trousers.
- Undone top coat button.
- A funky necktie slightly on the loose side.
The idea is to give a rough yet stylish look without looking like a complete mess. It is all about maintaining the right balance between formal rigidity and casual elegance.
