Get The Look: Jeff Goldblum

Explore the signature looks of one of the slickest men in Hollywood… then steal his style yourself

Having first hit our screens in 1974, Jeff Goldblum is an actor with serious staying power. Starring in some of the biggest-grossing films of the century (Jurassic Park, Independence Day and The Grand Budapest Hotel to name but a few) his work is reaching a whole new generation with Guardians Of The Galaxy and Thor, not to mention a new walk with dinosaurs in 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

For a wardrobe that works as hard as he does, Goldblum has certainly moved with the times. Favouring chinos, soft jackets and just the right amount of colour, he manages to look fashion-forward and age-appropriate with simultaneous ease. Explore some of his signature looks below.


Suited & booted

As glamorous as it is, the standard tuxedo often blends in at a formal event. Make like Jeff and add in a touch of colour with an overcoat—our A.P.C (£186) choice mimics the rich tones of the original outfit but is much more lightweight, perfect for summer evening events.

A simple suit (£99, Burton) and shiny shoes (Dobell, £39.99) never go out of style, and neither does a great haircut—freshen up dull locks with Maria Nila’s Colour Refresh in Pearl Silver (£15.72).

Entirely vegan and free from sulphates and parabens, it leaves the glossy silver finish that is Goldblum’s signature look.


Tropic thunder

Hawaiian shirts—get them right and they look playful and fun, get them wrong and you’re edging too far towards tacky holiday nostalgia.

The key is to choose a print that isn’t too busy. We love Jeff’s three-colour print that can be mimicked on a budget thanks to Primark (£8).

Relaxed suit trousers (£39.50, Marks & Spencer) keep things smart-casual, skimming a desert boot (£54.99, Office) that is young and trendy without sacrificing comfort.

Top off the look with a chunky watch (Fossil, £139) and a slick of Davines Alchemic Conditioner (£20.40)—ideal for maintaining moisture in the warm weather.


Streetwear sports

The varsity trend is showing no signs of going away, but if your idea of exercise is a stroll to the nearest pub, a baseball jacket is your best bet. Jeff’s exact garment retails at £1,450 from Saint Laurent, but vintage shops can also be a great destination for something more unique.

When the jacket is fairly statement, the rest of the look can afford to be paired down. Cotton chinos (£12,99, H&M) and slim-fit T-Shirt (£16, Farah) show off a toned physique, while a flash of grey socks (£3.99, Gap) and a Trilby hat (Jaxon & James, £39.50) show off the quirky, old-Hollywood style that Goldblum is known for.


Moody blues

No matter your skintone, dusty blue is a flattering shade to sport. If you’re looking to wear a single colour from head to toe, remember to mix up your shades.

A soft duck-egg roll neck (£60, Peter Christian) under washed-out Levi’s jacket (£42) balances out the slimming navy of a straight trouser (£30, Jack & Jones).

Complete with signature wayfarers (£75, Ray Bans) and 1920’s-esque jazz shoes (£130, Bass Weejuns), you’ll be ready for day and evening events alike—a great option for those who prefer a capsule wardrobe.


A splash of colour

Fashion should be fun, and it doesn’t come much jollier that Jeff’s patterned cardigan. Similar styles were very popular for the AW17 season, with many options now available in the summer sales, such as this Navaho-inspired Ralph Lauren piece (£98).

Pick out the soft taupe tones with a pair of chinos (£200, Mr Porter) and add another layer of comfort with a snug turtleneck (£28, Pretty Green).

Lastly, you need that Goldblum quaff—get a small scoop of Murdock London’s Vintage pomade (£15) in your palms and run through your hair with rough fingers for that textured, gentle wave.
