Zac Efron = style maker? Don't laugh.




Good fashion sense is good fashion sense. Whether the person is a small child with parents who have fantastic style, a seasoned politician with an affinity for perfectly tailored suits and is just as comfortable in jeans and a tshirt, or a young actor who previously was only adored by pre-pubescent young girls and gay men in the midst of midlife crises who has a great stylist and actually might know what clothes look best on him.
I'm not embarrassed to say this. After all, good fashion sense is good fashion sense. The great folks at Conde Nast just featured a few photographs of Zac Efron on their website. And I must say, I'm impressed with his style. Or, rather, the styles he wears in the photographs at least.
Gingham. Well tailored jackets. Straight leg denim (from Dior Homme, in the second picture, and from Gucci, in the third picture). Also is the iconic Thom Browne blazer in the first picture.
I'm not saying one should mimic a certain High School aesthetic. But when you exude confidence and class like in the pictures here of Mr. Efron, you'll look more like a man and less like a pubescent punk.
Fashion is fantasy. Fashion is flair. Fashion is funk. Fashion is what you make of it.
