Keep it casual
Justin Bieber has always been a mirror to casual contemporary fashion. Though understated, there is always room for one bold element in his look that's the talk of the town, be it his bleached long locks in 2016, limited edition sneakers or some serious bling. He cleans up well for his red carpet sightings in bold suits and some killer sneakers. The key is to avoid over-the-top accessorising.
Only Bieber can enter a club, an airport or Madison Square Garden wearing a baseball cap and look cool. It's a great way to hide a bad hair day too.
Silk bomber jackets in various colours or prints, patent leather jackets for added drama on stage, a simple chequered robe style jacket -- it is the easiest way to add cool to your OOTD.
Bleached or denim in lighter tones is a staple in Bieber's wardrobe. Oversized denim shirts, ripped baggy or skinny jeans, all paired with sought-after kicks guarantee some serious Pop star vibes.
A burst of print always lifts an outfit and Bieber does it well. Slogan tees, a simple tie-and-dye T-shirt worn with sunglasses and ripped jeans or an animal print bomber jacket and you are dressed like Bieber.

He might be Canadian, but his style is very American. An all-black or white outfit offset with a chequered jacket is quintessential Bieber. A simple chequered shirt or an over shirt with a twist of high-low hem does the trick, too.
Bieber's obsession with shoes is well known. And donning a strong pair of sneakers (high tops or low), be it in terms of colour and design or exclusivity is the lazy guy's way to instant cool.
Longline tees, shorts or jackets — the singer's current obsession is everything long.
Girls can do it to!
Wear an oversized longline T-shirt as a dress with a pair of high top shoes, or track pants with heels, and you have an element of Bieber's style in your wardrobe. You can also try boyfriend or distressed jeans (ripped or paint splattered) with a crop top and sparkly clean sneakers. Oversized denim shirts with little details such as studs or patches will help you emulate his Hip-Hop-meets-Grunge look.
Head's up on Bieber
- Go short on the sides and extra long on the top to match Bieber's Grunge Punk look.
- If you wish to get experimental, bleach your locks or go platinum blonde like him.
- Deep condition your hair regularly to save your hair from chemical damage.
- Either gel the top back for a formal do or let the strands hang loose on the side for a sundowner.
