With comfort ranking as top priority for Redmayne, it makes sense that all his looks have a simple approach to style. In order to achieve this look, you have to have a clear understanding that there is distinct difference between comfortable and sloppy. Start with a slim or regular fit pair of jeans in either a dark or white wash. The actor is a huge fan of layers, so incorporating these into your style is must. Pair a structured blazer that includes a minimal design with a solid-colored button-down shirt. If you want to include additional layers, you can incorporate a light cashmere sweater. Aim at keeping the top and bottom tailored to your body type, and avoid pieces that may be too baggy.

If you are attending a work or professional event and want to stick to a polished look, then Redmayne’s style approach is ideal. You will stick to the same elements of the causal chic look with a few minor tweaks. Swap a pair of jeans for a slim fit pair of chinos or slacks. If you are looking for a more trendy approach, make sure the pants hit right at the ankles. This look is great with either a pair of oxfords or a pair of loafers. Instead of a blazer, include a tailored leather jacket either in black or brown and make sure the jacket has muted detailing. Your choice of shirt should ideally be a clean crisp white button-down — you honestly can’t go wrong with this option. If you wish to introduce a bit of color, include a tie with a pattern or in a bold color.

Again keeping the look comfortable is key and should not be forgotten, even when it comes to more formal affairs. In case you aren’t sure about this approach, remember: “Comfort is confidence,” says Redmayne. In addition to always conveying an effortless style, Redmayne also likes to be prepared for what may pop up especially when it comes to the red carpet. To mimic this approach, pair a light cashmere sweater under a fitted well-structured dark suit. This makes it easy to transform the look by simply removing the jacket. To add a bit of personality, opt for a sweater with a simple design or color. When it comes to footwear, pair the suit with a shiny pair of oxfords in black, brown, or burgundy.
