Celebrity style: Pharrell Williams does wardrobe staples with a difference

Natalie Hanson   |   05 - 04 - 2017

Pharrell Williams, the world-famous musician and producer, has never been one to shy away from experimentation when it comes to his style. In a celebrity world full of safe black and navy suits, he often likes to mix things up and always gives us something interesting to look at on the red carpet. He also likes to show off his love for the most luxurious of labels, who all no doubt have so much fun dressing him for his events.


However, even the most adventurous of us tend to gravitate towards our favourite things. Today (5 Apr) is his birthday so, to celebrate, we are taking a look through Pharrell’s fashion archives and spotting the things he has always kept in style over the years as he has honed his signature look.


Colour is key for Pharrell’s look and he loves bright hues to help him stand out from the crowd and show he isn’t taking things too seriously.

Camo print

Camouflage print is something that tends to come in and out of style, but for Pharrell it’s always been a firm favourite in his wardrobe. He uses it most effectively to add some streetwear flair to his red-carpet ensembles.

Clearly a favourite label of his, Pharrell has worn Chanel many times in his public appearances. Here, his statement footwear says it all.

Whether a hat or a jacket, Pharrell loves the bold statement fur makes and wear it as part of his casual outfits or elevates his formal looks.

Headwear is a real signature item for this style mogul. It started way back with a love of simple caps and has evolved over the years to much more directional styles, all which become high fashion shapes once he is seen wearing them.

Pharrell’s preference for shorts gives his signature style a real boyish and preppy charm. He loves to mix together different concepts and wearing shorts to formal events gives a cool and fresh twist on traditional formalwear.
