Johnny Depp’s Style Secrets Exposed [PICTURES]

I can’t believe I didn’t write this article sooner. I can’t imagine how Be Stylish, a mature men’s style blog, didn’t have a page dedicated to one of the hottest Hollywood actors.. who also happens to be the worlds’d most famous men style icon.

I think one of the funniest stories I ever head about Johnny was when this school girl wrote to “Jack Sparrow” (the name of the character he plays in Pirates of the Caribbean).

She wrote to him that she and her colleagues got sick of their teachers and that they’re planning to start a mutiny. Just like pirates, who rebel against taxes social norms. At the end of the letter, she (obviously) wrote down her school where she was studying.

You’ll never guess what happened. Jack Sparrow (or Johnny Depp, cause they’re the same thing) decided to pay her a visit… while wearing the full costume of the most famous pirate character in the world.

How cool is that?

Well, I’m not going to post any pictures of that costume… I’m sure you already know it. Instead, I’ll show you some of the hottest outfits Johnny has ever worn… and comment them from a style perspective.

By the end of this article, you’ll not only think he’s a great movie star but also that he dresses really really well.

His unique style…

Johnny Depp chooses a really relaxed casual look. He wears a lot of t-shirts but compensates with many accessories.

Let the show begin!

Outfit #1: brown t-shirt, grey hat

We’re starting off with this apparently simple outfit… if you don’t count the tattoo and the accessories, that is.

The t-shirt isn’t much and I’m sure you could get one yourself right now.

But what about the hat? Would you wear one? Mixing black and dark-brown isn’t such a great idea but mixing GREY an brown can make you look damn hot!

And what about the wrist watch? The brown leather strap matches the t-shirt and gives him that “I’m a busy man” look, along with the glasses.

But that “good guy” look is quickly toned down by the tattoos on both his arm and the rest of the accessories.

The interesting thing about this is that no single item of clothing stands out – yet the overall look is amazing.

Outfit #2: Johnny in a brown leather jacket and wearing a green scarf

I’m sorry I don’t have the full attire but, even so, we have a lot to learn about matching colors from this second outfit.

Breakdown: light-brown jacket, green scarf, grey hat and glasses with purple lens. Don’t forget the 2 rings on his right hand.

The trio brown-green-purple works well together but it all depends on the quantity. If you’re afraid you’ll screw up, just finish the outfit with greys (grey chinos, grey shoes, a light-grey t-shirt etc.)

Neutral colors are your lifeguard when you’re playing around with colors.

Outfit #3: lots and lots of bracelets

Well, you don’t have to wear them if you don’t like them. The thing is, once you’ll reach a certain point in your style evolution, you’ll begin to love certain clothes and accessories… and there’s no doubt Johnny Depp is in love with bracelets.

The lesson here is simple. You can wear the most generic item of clothing possible (such as a white t-shirt) and look unbelievable.
