Ryan Reynolds casual style for Deadpool 2.

Ryan Reynolds has been circling the globe lately, as he promotes Deadpool 2. And not surprisingly, he's been looking good while doing it. Because whether he's on a red carpet, on a motorcycle, pulling a suitcase through an airport or running down the street to get coffee, the guy looks good. And not just because he's a chiseled, six-foot-two Hollywood star—though, that can't hurt, right? It's because he's got an affinity for outfits that look considered and stylish, yet also feel entirely approachable. Follow his lead and swipe a few of these solid style moves.


Make a Statement.
But Don't Shout.

If you don't have a printed short sleeve shirt in your warm weather style arsenal yet, pick one up. They make an impact, but if you want to tone it down a bit, do like Ryan here and layer it under a lightweight jacket. It allows the print to pop without looking too flashy or over-the-top. It works the same way under a suit jacket for a cool summer wedding as well. This one is by Saturdays NYC and is still available if you want to grab it for yourself.

When it Works,
Repeat (and Repeat).

We definitely appreciate this one. Reynolds knows what works for him. He tends to stick to more classic pieces with a neutral color palette and focuses on nailing the fit. This suede jacket, in a surprisingly versatile shade of olive green, is from Parisian menswear label Officine Générale, and it's become one of his favorite pieces. Unlike some leading men, who wear a borrowed piece only once or twice, Reynolds consistently wears this jacket on and off duty. Because if you invest in a piece that works for your style and makes you look and feel good, you should wear the hell out it.

Embrace the Comfort
of Knits.

Reynolds was turned onto the transformative power of knits by his stylist, Ilaria Urbinati. For more muscular and athletic builds, button-up shirts can sometimes feel restricting. Or maybe a bit too dressy. Knits and silks are more "fluid, and appear more tailored" but have an effortless vibe, according to Urbinati. They also emphasize the muscles you've worked hard to develop.
