Get The "Keanu" Look
Posted: Aug 03 2016
Arguably the most cultish underground celeb Keanu Reeves may not be the best actor per se, but he sure knows how to serve up some killer looks on screen. From the goofy, stoner vibes of Bill & Ted's to slick lawyer steez in The Devil's Advocate, Keanu's get-up is always on lock and not that hard to imitate. We round up some of the best KeKe looks and show you how to achieve them Assembly-style.
Jack Traven's ability to look chill-as-hell and low key fashion progressiveness with his layered collars and utility vibes is ultra admirable. Cops don't look like this IRL, but you can dream.
The combo of Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves wearing tailored (probs rare, archival Tom Ford) blazers and pressed white shirts is swoon-worthy to say the least. In this movie, Keanu plays a hot-shot New York lawyer who falls victim to an evil boss and starts to transform into the worst version of himself. Even though the storyline is pretty damn morbid, his outfits are dapper and def double-tap worthy.
BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
Even though Ted is a total goober in this movie, his 80's power-metal steelo and clashing pattern looks are very on-trend right now. The San Dimas based "Wyld Stallyns" musician mixes rare band merch with simple pieces like grungey cut-off shorts and hoodies to achieve a chiller/stoner aesthetic. Many of the pieces look like they were produced by LA's 69 [DUDE]!
When gnarly surf-bro Johnny Utah is taking time off from hittin the waves and catchin' bad guys, he's working on his radical Summer surf look with best mate Patrick Swayze. Keanu's wardrobe is very minimal in this film, with tee's, jeans and surf shorts being everyday essentials.
MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO
This beautiful tale of self-discovery is accompanied by River and Keanu's vintage-inspired, 90's grunge looks which consist of patterned button-ups, tinted shades and shearling jackets. The rural location of the film and visually rich setting compliments the creative Hunter S. Thomson-esque outfits throughout the film.
Bad Boy John Wick is an assassin and literal fashion-killer who is seeking revenge on a man who killed his puppy wearing a v. structural charcoal suit. This film was Keanu's 2014 comeback which proved to us that he's still got it in the style department.
