How to dress like Johnny Depp

Published

on

Johnny Depp, for me, is one of the most influential style icons when it comes to men’s clothing. Such a style makes me think why I don’t see more of it when I’m out and about. The truth is, when I walk down the road, its either jeans and a t-shirt or a track-suite, both of which are perfectly fine; if you’re comfortable with the way you look and feel…that’s great!

But who’s to say men shouldn’t be able to make a statement with their clothing? It’s true, dressing as unique as Johnny Depp on a day-to-day basis (without being a world class actor) might look a tad out of place. Popping down to Sainsbury’s wearing ripped jeans, a dark brown waistcoat, bangles half the way up your arm and a hat, I can understand if that’s too much.

However, likewise to women’s fashion, we can take little snippets from a flamboyant way of dressing and make it our own. Here’s just a few ways of doing so…

Texture

A common aspect of this style is layering up the textures. This picture shows a suede fronted waistcoat and what looks to be a regular leather back. Leather also seem to be an easy option for creating difference in and outfit. A cotton shirt underneath a jacket or waistcoat like this is perfect! A long as it doesn’t look like your bog-standard work shirt with a big collar, you’re on you’re way. Johnny wears small collared shirts a lot and tends to roll the sleeves up. This looks extremely flattering. If you’re not a fan of short sleeves, a long sleeved shirt rolled up to three quarter length also gives the same ‘messy’ look. Experiment with different textures, it all depends on how Deppified you want to go; I’d say the look above is pretty neutral…not too out there.

Jewellery

There’s no doubt about it, most men have an ignorance to wearing jewelleryBut look at it!!! You have to trust in that fact that Johnny looks so cool with bangles, bracelets and necklaces. You might even think you can’t pull it off, but give it a go, as long as it’s with the right clothes it’s all fine.

Beads, leather string, and silvers. Anything you see in those quaint little shops on holidays, hippie shops, basically make it look like you’re well travelled ;D. Wearing jewellery with fairly basic clothing such as this baggy gypsy top (roll up those sleeves to give the illusion of less fabric) means you don’t look to much. You don’t need six different necklaces if you don’t want to, just one or two will do.

Jeans

To sum up the jeans: ripped, acid washed, denim. Usually baggy and frayed at the ankles, not like the skinny fit we see these days. Again, try keeping the top minimalistic if you’re not wanting to go all out, but if you are… patterned tops can be really effective, shirts with a double denim effect like the one above with pockets and such.

Other accessories

Now this is where you can really experiment. Lets take a white t-shirt and blue ripped jeans. Simplistic.

Add a wide rimmed hat (stick some feathers in it if you’re feeling it) generally more worn in hats of black or brown, fabric or leather look best. A lightweight scarf just to wrap around can distract from any undone buttons and add to the effect of the necklaces. Lastly, who can forget the old faithful glasses? You’re look won’t be complete without them, any weather can require the need of glasses, so don’t feel stupid about wearing them. dark shades, coloured shades or if you actually need prescribed glasses, go for some brown rimmed roundish shaped ones.

When styling this look, all you need to remember is to buy things that don’t look brand spanking new, buy rips, worn in, almost grungy/ bohemian.

In the end, you just have to be confident in what you’re wearing. Imagine seeing someone wearing the picture above in a shop. If they were clearly unconfident and uncomfortable, they would bring more attention to themselves than someone who looked quietly confident.

Catherine Zeta Jones was all praise for Netflix's hit series Wednesday,and co-star Jenna Ortega, in a recent interview.

On Wednesday, January 25, Catherine Zeta Jones, who plays Morticia Addams, spoke to Ross King in a chat show on Lorraine about the Wednesday series being renewed for a second season.

According to Daily Mail, the actress was alongside her husband Michael Douglas at a Burns night celebration.

She told the reporter, “When Tim Burton asked me to do it, I was like ‘whatever you want me to do Tim!’ and then the idea of me playing Morticia, who’s such an iconic, wonderful, juicy character was wonderful.”

Speaking about the show, she said, “It turned out so much better than I think anybody anticipated.”

Catherine also praised her co-star, “Jenny Ortega is just marvellous as Wednesday and through the eyes of Tim Burton it’s a lot of fun.”

The 53-year-old Hollywood star continued, “I’m really happy to be part of it I must say.”

Catherine’s screen icon husband Michael, 78, was certainly a fan of his wife’s work as he chimed in, “She killed Morticia, she really killed it!”

Nia Long Says ‘Fresh Prince’ Costar Will Smith ‘Carried a Burden for Many Years to Represent’ Perfection

Nia Long is proud of how far Will Smithhas come.

In speaking of her former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar, Long, 52, applauded Smith, 54, for how he’s handled himself in the spotlight.

“I will always love him. He’s had an incredible career, and he’s carried a burden for many years to try — to represent what perfection looks like,” Long, who played Smith’s character’s girlfriend and fiancée Beulah “Lisa” Wilkes on the series, said in an interview with Yahoo’s Kevin Polowy. “Or what achievement looks like.”

Long also reflected on her generation’s idea of “celebrity” — and how Smith fit into that box. “I don’t think that — at least when we were growing up — there was room to be human. I think he’s now able to be human,” she added.

Last year, Smith went viral after slappingChris Rock on stage at the Oscars. The unscripted moment came after Rock, 57, mocked Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved hairstyle, which was done to her alopecia.

Smith, in turn, faced a great deal of backlash before he eventually apologized for his behavior.

Though Long did not directly mention Smith’s outburst, she equated life in the spotlight to that of strict routine, which sometimes does not allow authenticity.

“We all have our moments in life where we need to reconcile things that we suppress,” she said. “And I think — it’s hard growing up in this business and being front and center every day, all day.”

Of her own career, and backseat spotlight, she added. “Think about it — I can go to the grocery store anytime I want to, and for the most part, people are like ‘Hey, Nia Long.’ No one’s chasing me down the street. I still have my anonymity, and I appreciate that about my career.”

During the conversation, Long also got emotional discussing the difficulties she’s faced in recent months. Long went through a very public breakup last year with her fiancé, former Boston Celtics Coach Ime Udoka, after 13 years together. He had been caught having an affair with a female subordinate within the Celtics organization.

“I’ve had some pretty devastating moments in my life over the last couple of months, and I’ve had to just say ‘It’s alright. You’ll pick yourself back up’ — oh, my God I’m about to cry,” Long added. “You pick yourself back up, and you keep it moving.”

Did Amber Heard Made Johnny Depp Go Through Worst During His Lowest Points? ( Photo Credit – Instagram ; Movie Still )

Amber Heard very well planned steps in divorce against Johnny Depp to take him down during his lowest phases? Read details now!

Amber Heard has been declared guilty of defaming Johnny Depp during the latest Virginia trial. She was ordered to pay a compensation of $10.35 million which was later settled for only $1 million. But did you know, the Aquaman star strategically took steps during divorce? Well, the details of it will leave you shell-shocked.

A lot had been said and done during the one-year span that Johnny and Amber remained married. There were accusations of cheating with Elon Musk, a threesome with Cara Delevingne and so much more! On the other hand, the Justice League actress accused him of domestic violence, and verbal abuse amongst other claims.

A report by Animated Times now reveals details that are truly giving us goosebumps. It looks like Amber Heard strategically planned to leave Johnny Deppdestructed. She allegedly filed for divorce citing their official separation day as 17th April 2016. Betty Sue Palmer, JD’s mom, passed away just 2 days prior to that and the actor was facing his worst possible phase.

On the other hand, Amber heard filed for a restraining order against Johnny Depp on 27th May 2016. That was again the day Johnny Depp was ideally supposed to celebrate the birthday of his daughter Lily-Rose Depp. But unfortunately, his ex-wife stole the thunder.

One refuses to believe that all of this is mere coincidence!

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp denied all the allegations made against him by Amber Heard and termed them “heinous.”

He reacted to them in court and said, “It’s insane to hear heinous accusations of violence, s*xual violence, that she’s attributed to me, that she’s accused me of. I don’t think anyone enjoys having to split themselves open and tell the truth, but there are times when one simply has to because it’s gotten out of control. Horrible. Ridiculous. Humiliating. Ludicrous. Painful. Savage. Unimaginably brutal. Cruel and all false.”
