Ryan Gosling Style

Ryan Gosling is incredibly dreamy, effortlessly elegant and fiercely masculine all at the same time, as is evident in Ryan Gosling’s GQ shoot. This first look features a black leather jacket, striped T-shirt and black jeans. He pulls off the cool and relaxed look all too well, and so can you.



Ryan Gosling Hairstyle

Ryan’s signature hairstyle is a simple yet timeless side part styled with a messy or perfectly styled top depending on the occasion. If you’re looking for a radical change you’ll definitely make one hell of a statement with this bleach blonde hairstyle.

For the classic Gosling look, you can always compliment your side parting with a well-groomed beard. First off, use a beard moisturiser that will leave your hair soft and healthy. Then, use a shave brush to help get a nice lather of shaving cream on your face. The end result will leave you looking polished like Ryan Gosling.

Ryan Gosling Glasses

The Gosling charm doesn’t end at his facial hair. For centuries glasses have been a symbol of mystery and intellectual sexiness. Gosling’s now infamous prescription glasses are by Barton Perreira which are a popular choice for other actors, too. When it comes to shades, Persol and RayBan seem to be a favourite.

We totally understand that different glasses suit different face types, and if you’re going to invest in a pair you want them to suit you. Unfortunately, just because they suit Ryan, it doesn’t mean they’ll suit you, too. Take a look at our top sunglasses picks for more of a style variation.

Ryan Gosling in The Notebook

The Notebook introduced Ryan Gosling to film lovers across the world, and what an introduction that was. Ironically, he was cast because director Nick Cassavetes thought he wasn’t handsome or cool, just a regular guy – yeah, right. Ryan Gosling’s style from The Notebook is relaxed and sometimes gives off hobo-chic vibes, but that’s ok- it works any casual occasion. To dress up this look, layer the t-shirt with an unbuttoned white shirt.

  1. Use the cuffs as a measuring point, unbutton and fold it once.
  2. Continue to repeat the first step, pull the fabric taut to make sure it is smooth and straight.
  3. Keep on rolling until you go past the elbow.

Ryan Gosling Shoes

When it comes to shoes, the same rules apply as for hairstyles, glasses and basic tees: find what you like, stick to it and stock up. It wouldn’t be surprising if Ryan Gosling had a section of his house dedicated to boot.

You think Ryan Gosling’s style obsession was limited to hipster spectacles, white tees and folded up sleeves? Think again. Here’s another little fact about Gosling: He’s in a synth-jazz band with his mate Zach Shields called Dead Man’s Bones. We all know that musicians love to wear boots. The man loves his boots so much; the dirtier and more banged up the better.

Ryan Gosling Black Boots

Gosling also seems to have a special thing for black boots. Realistically, Ryan Gosling wears boots so often that someone should make a documentary about it – you’ve heard it here first. Whether he’s leaving the gym, landing in LAX, or taking his dog George for a walk, his black boots seem to be his loyal companions. When it comes to black boots, you can do no wrong with a pair of classic Dr. Martens.

  • Pieces like plain T-shirts, light coloured shirts and slim fit chinos are easily interchangeable and go with a range of looks.
