Fathers, dads, daddies, zaddies, whatever you choose to call ’em, there’s no denying that the family man holds a strong influence in his household. Parenting style varies from one father to another, but we’re here to talk about another type of style—fashion!
Father figures not only provide a leading example when it comes to choice behaviour, but are style icons, too. Below, we count down the most fashion forward fathers on Instagram, who have been slaying the game with their zaddy OOTDs. How many of them do you already follow?
The phrase ‘Bend it like Beckham’ can also be used in a fashion context. Mr. Beckham bounces from athleisure to smart casual as seamlessly as he is on the football field, and when he needs to suit up, boy, does he know how!
Not only is this man a stylish father of two, but John Legend is an EGOT—a person who has been awarded an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award! He is one of the fifteen people in the world to share this prestigious recognition. Like his smooth voice and sound, his style is very suave, and is usually seen in tailored suits and polished ensembles.
Does this man ever age?! We need to know Pharrell Williams’ beauty secret. Our theory in what keeps him young is his fun and fresh approach to style. We often see him in comfy hoodies, capris and sneakers so cool, hypebeasts half his age would envy. His fashion sense hasn’t really changed since we were first introduced to him in the early 2000s, and perhaps that really is his secret?
This NBA star is a show-stopper on an off the basketball court. Based on the OOTD above alone, LeBron James is a pro at colour-blocking and mixing aesthetics. If you’re gifted with a height of 6 feet and 9 inches, you might as well maximise that frame! When he’s not scoring hoops, he’s definitely scoring points when it comes to experimenting with different styles.
Ahhh, the daddy with the face of an angel! Thanks to his breakout role in White Collar, we’re used to seeing the man in a suit and tie. It’s been years since the series ended, but the actor remains to be most often photographed all suited up. Honestly, we’re not complaining. We love his stylish dapper looks he serves on Instagram!
This father of two juggles between being a father, a husband, an actor, a writer, a producer, a rapper, a DJ, and even a designer with his own label 2HR Set. The clothes are true to his personal style: casual and laidback with a streetwise edge.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Lenny Kravitz has been paving the way for gender neutrality. It may be unbeknownst to him, but his fashion choices have made a positive impact on how we view gender norms. His picks are traditionally known to be “feminine”, like heavy jewellery, floral prints and pastels. Which ultimately raises the question; and attempts to change the narrative, when it comes to clothes, what is truly masculine and feminine?
Neil Patrick Harris
This stage dad is no stranger to putting on a show. Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka make dressing up for Halloween a family affair, and usually top our list when it comes to adorable ensemble costumes. On a regular basis, Mr. Harris doesn’t shy away from head-turning OOTDs. He loves to play with colour and prints on casual days, but knows how to clean up nicely in a suit much like his famous character Barney Stinson.
Lucky Blue Smith
It’s surprising to know that this young father of two (one is currently on the way) is only 23! Born with good looks, a piercing stare and a lanky frame, everyday is a runway moment with this male model. His style is very relaxed and casual, mostly opting for a t-shirt, denims and sneakers. But when he’s not in a super chill mood, he jumps from old school James Dean vibes to preppy schoolboy to grungy rockstar.
Scott Disick is easily the most amusing character on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in our humble opinion. Father to Kourtney Kardashian’s children, the reality star lives life with close to no filter, and his OTT antics are often translated down to his fashion choices. The man loves luxury and isn’t afraid to show it. A close inspection of his OOTDs tells us he likes to flex with high-end watches. Keep up with Scott and hit follow on his Instagram account for real-time updates!
