We often think of footballers as overindulgent and not that stylish all round (partly due to a lot of money and very little taste), but there are a few that are an exception. Cristiano Ronaldo's style has made headlines, sometimes for the wrong reasons, and other because he's wearing very little, but, without a doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best-dressed footballers in the world.

Cristiano Ronaldo Style

Being from Portugal, Cristiano is used to dressing a little more freely, yet, while he was playing in the UK and living here, he had to experiment with a few more layers, sometimes to no avail. However, those days are behind us now, and Cristiano has definitely found a shape and silhouette that works for him.

For the perfect smart-casual approach to style, Cristiano is a fan of teaming a smarter or more formal blazer with a pair of jeans and shoes. Combining the two dress codes together creates an instant smart-casual look. Seen here with a navy blue blazer and blue jeans (usually a combination I wouldn't recommend, but Cristiano has proved me wrong) and a formal pair of brown brogues. Avoid wearing black shoes with navy as the colours are too similar and will clash.

When the weather does start to take a turn for the colder side then Cristiano has mastered the art of layering. Layering is the perfect way to tackle autumn/winter style for men as it allows you to pull pieces together rather than having one key piece to your look.

Cristiano takes the classic bomber jacket but opts for a suede version in brown/tan colour. A great colour to work around as it still has the neutrality of black but it's just a little more eye catching. Paired with a roll neck jumper in black, some black slim leg jean and a pair of derby shoes in the same hue as his jacket.

A lover of earthy tones, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone for the classic shirt and jeans combination. However, instead of opting for the classic, neutral colours such as white or black, Cristiano has decided to go for a dark brown colour. An unusual colour for many people to try out, but on Cristiano, it works.

Cristiano Ronaldo Suit

Like most footballers, Cristiano has to turn up to a few formal occasions from time to time. Suiting needs to be done properly for it to work, as suits can go wrong pretty quickly if you're not careful. The great thing (I assume) about being a footballer is that you can afford the luxury of a well-tailored suit, and there's nothing more pleasing to the eye than a well fitting suit.

If you're thinking of investing in a suit then always go for neutral colours for versatility and ease-of-wear. Grey is a great colour to work with when you're thinking of investing in a suit as it gives you the versatility of black but without the morbid context.

Black tie is a great way to dust off the old tuxedo and doll yourself up a little bit. Again, don't go for anything too out there and in-your-face when it comes to classic dressing as you'll want to invest in something that will last you for years to come. Black is the best option for a tuxedo as it's the normal go-to; you can add some detail with a colour dickie bow or cummerbund, but usually black is perfect as well.

Cristiano Ronaldo Hair Style

It's been well documented that Cristiano Ronaldo's hair has seen it's fair share of changes over the years, some good and some not so good. But, the one thing you could say is that he's willing to experiment and has a willingness to change with the latest trends of the time.

Keeping it short around the back and sides Cristiano likes to keep it long on top for optimal styling options. A fan of wet look gel, Cristiano usually slicks it either to the side or back to keep it off of his face. To achieve this look all you'll need to some gel or pomade and a comb.

  • Start by taking a small amount of wax/gel/pomade and work it into your hands.
  • Work it through your entire head making sure it's had a full covering.
  • Then, take a comb and find your side parting (this is fairly easy to do) and comb it to your preferred side.
  • Set with a little hairspray and you'll be good to go.
