Every generation has that one actor who’s equal parts talented and dreamy (think Leo in Titanic). There's no doubt that this time around, the mantle has fallen squarely on the shoulders of Timothée Chalamet—who has captured the admiration and interest of fans and stans galore with his arresting performances in everything from Call Me By Your Name to The King over the past few years.

Chalamet, 25, will soon be featured in the sci-fi classic tuned delayed blockbuster Dune, along with Wes Anderson's new film The French Dispatch. But when he's not busy hosting Saturday Night Live or jetting around the globe, Chalamet has been known to pull off some of the best celebrity outfits in recent memory. Much like his acting chops, Chalamet has range—he's a seasoned best-dressed on red carpets, but the star's Instagram fit pics are just as stylish, albeit slightly more casual. Whether he's dressed down in an excellent striped rugby jersey and jeans or the essential long sleeve tee/shorts combo, Chalamet has proven time and time again that low maintenance doesn't have to equate to no style.

This simple outfit by Chalamet is exactly how we want to be dressing this summer—a casual, roomy look with just the right amount of color for the warm months. The young fit king gets everything right here, with a sized-up white flowing shirt, loud but relaxed pants, a bold pair of chunky kicks, and all the right accessories. The formula that he's working with isn't particularly complex, but as Chalamet is apt at displaying, intention is everything. The trick to pulling off this summer look is fit—make sure you have room to spare with the button down, and a relaxed or wide-legged pant will couple perfectly to make sure you look effortlessly cool, as opposed to swimming in your clothes.
