‘Uncle’ might not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of the gravel-voiced Luther star, but don’t let appearances fool you – Elba is nearing 50, a fact he keeps well-hidden by staying in shape while wearing smart casual outfits.
He has an ever-so-slight hint of a street vibe coming in, which makes sense as he’s a DJ as well. His look mixes sportswear, tailored pieces and heritage fashion. He looks good in flat caps too.
He’ll wear quite simple things, then accessorize with high-top trainers, chain necklaces or blacked-out sunglasses. He pulls it off well by keeping the rest simple.
Elba’s secret weapon is the humble knit-wear, usually in dark, unpatterned, neutral colours which flatter men of all shapes. A sweater that fits your body is a go-to garment; it should fit you in a way that doesn’t draw focus to your stomach; they can finish your outfit off perfectly.
