Chadwick Boseman was one of the most stylish men in Hollywood. Here’s proof

Actor Chadwick Boseman who’s best known for his role as King T’Challa in Black Panther has passed away from colon cancer on August 28. He was 42 years old.

In a statement released by its publicist, it says “It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman. A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” the statement said. “From ‘Marshall’ to ‘Da 5 Bloods,’ August Wilson’s ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.”

Acting chops aside, the actor has proved that he’s also a force to be reckoned with when it comes to style, be it on the red carpet or off-duty.

Below, all of Chadwick Boseman’s best looks in recent years:

Bring the bling

If the ladies can shine and shimmer on the red carpet, Chadwick proved that men could do the same too. The actor has rocked some serious bling over the years, whether it’s in the form of an embellished pantsuit or the perfectly on-theme Met Gala ensemble (which was, hands down, our favourite look of his).

Rock the rainbow

From salmon pink to bright yellow, trust the star to wear—and nail—them all. If you’d like to rock bold hues but don’t know where to start, take a style cue from Chadwick—co-ords are fail-proof.

Prints on the prowl

Is there such thing as too loud prints for the 42-year-old? The answer is no, as his love for daring prints—especially animal’s—is apparent. From snakeskin to giraffe to tiger, Chadwick has been spotted in them all, including some pattern clash in the mix.

Pared down perfection

With all that said, the actor did tone things down once in a while with muted colours and silhouettes. But even then, his style still shined through.
