He’s played Robb Stark, Prince Charming, a Medici, a world famous DJ, as well as the Bodyguard. There’s no doubt that Richard Madden is not only one of today’s most prominent leading men, he’s also incredibly versatile. Who knows what role he’ll take on next? While that may be difficult to predict, one thing is certain. As his presence on both the big and small screens rapidly rises, so is his red carpet profile. The leading man is also fast becoming a style star and among the best dressed men on red carpets around the world.
When it comes to fashion, Richard Madden never just goes for the tried and true or the traditional yet predictable. He’s certainly not one who’s afraid to make an attention grabbing fashion statement, as proven by his wardrobe choice for the wedding of Kit Harington and Rose Leslie. It seems no one has made a kilt look quite as good as he did when he chose to show off his Scottish heritage and wear one at the wedding of his fellow Game of Thrones co-stars. While you don’t have to wear a kilt yourself, we’re sharing some tips on how you can be just as fashionable as the actor.
Classic with a twist is how one could describe Richard Madden’s personal style. His outfits are never too loud or too bold that they verge on tacky. However, there’s always something unique and refreshing about them. It’s never just the same old look that someone else would wear.
Richard seems to rarely ever go for the usual suit and tie look. While he’s frequently in a suit, he often pairs it with a simple shirt instead of the typical button down worn with a necktie. Just like the actor, you can wear your classic navy blue double breasted suit. However, wear a plain cream turtleneck shirt and dark brown leather boots with it instead. To stay warm when your outdoors, layer on a chic and coordinating double breasted coat in the same navy blue color.
For an all-black look that’s anything but basic, it’s all about the details. Richard wore a black single breasted suit with casual black trousers and a plain black t-shirt. The actor perfectly coordinated his accessories to go with the outfit, wearing stylish sunglasses with blackout frames and even the strap of his watch was black. What really made the outfit were his shoes that had a small detail with a big impact. He completed the look with black leather lace up sneakers with a stark white rubber sole. That hint of contrasting color made all the style difference.

He replicated a similar style but with a more smart casual vibe, wearing a dark grey suit instead. This time, Richard wore a dark grey single breasted suit with matching trousers and a plain dark grey jumper. He elevated the look with the stylish addition of an off-white pocket square and off-white leather lace up sneakers to match it. You can easily wear both looks yourself.

The actor isn’t afraid of fashion and has made other slightly bolder choices. At the Cannes Film Festival, he chose a grey oblique suit by Kim Jones for Dior. He paired the less traditional suit with a black button down shirt printed with bright little flowers, and black leather boots.

It does appear that Richard likes to wear less common leather boots with his suits. At the Met Gala, fashion’s biggest night, he chose another Dior oblique suit, this time creating a tough vibe with his all black ensemble. He wore a plain black button down shirt, without a necktie and his trousers appeared to be tucked inside his ankle boots. The only other accessory he wore was a giant safety pin on his lapel.

While the actor doesn’t balk at bolder style choices, he also looks just as suave dressed in classic attire. Emulate his laidback, business casual looks in either a cream suit and trousers, worn with a white shirt or a navy suit and trousers with a light blue shirt. Regardless of which color combination you prefer, make sure to wear your shirt with the first few top buttons undone.

For more formal occasions, opt for a chic black three-piece suit with a vest, jacket and tuxedo pants, along with a classic white shirt and a black necktie. When it comes to fashionable tuxedos, you can go for a sleek navy tuxedo jacket with a black shawl collar, worn with a white shirt, black tuxedo pants and a black bowtie. You can also go for a more fashion forward style and choose a velvet tuxedo, as the actor has on more than one occasion. Try a dark green velvet tuxedo jacket with black peak lapels, worn with a white shirt, black trousers, shoes and bowtie. If you’re feeling even bolder, go for an all velvet look with a black velvet suit and matching velvet trousers. Finish off the look with a white shirt, black bowtie and shiny black shoes.
