The actor’s latest blockbuster hit The Revenant is reminding fans why they love Leonardo DiCaprio so much. In addition to his long list of accomplishments as an actor, philanthropist, and director, he manages to keep it together by maintaining a sleek, laid-back style. Here’s how to replicate it.

1. Simple red carpet style

You rarely see the star sporting a shirt and tie; DiCaprio prefers a simple button-down shirt usually in white and occasionally in other distinct colors like blue. Pairing his button-down with a classic dark suit with minimal design keeps his look timeless. The Giorgio Armani Taylor basic two button wool suit is a perfect example of his signature look. If you are looking for a simple pattern, The Pal Zileri two button windowpane suit is a nice option. When it comes to footwear, the actor likes to complete the look with a dark colored oxford in either mahogany or black.

2. Casual style

Again the actor is not a fan of too much fussiness, which clearly translates into his style options. When it comes to DiCaprio’s days off, he keeps it simple with a loose fit pair of dark jeans usually paired with either a pullover sweatshirt, or roomy sweater and a light jacket. To replicate this look, go with 7 For All Mankind relaxed straight leg jeans paired with the DSquared2 crewneck wool blended sweatshirt. The actor’s go-to shoes are a pair of basic canvas sneakers in either white or navy. If you are looking for a pair of sneakers that can be woven into your wardrobe more frequently, DiCaprio is a big fan of low cut leather sneakers.

3. Airport style

Typically trying to go unnoticed, the star likes to sport a baseball cap and aviator sunglasses. These options are easily paired with a dark pair of jeans and sneakers. To keep his hands free, DiCaprio is often seen sporting a classic backpack in black. The Pop Quiz backpack by Herschel Supply Co. is affordable and compliments any basic look. The actor is a lover of both the aviator and wayfarer sunglasses by Ray-Ban, which both work well for the airport or sitting poolside. In colder months, you can catch the star sporting his waist-length black puffer coat. The options for this outerwear style are endless; stick to simple looks like the Cole Hann mountain hardwear coat or the Rogue Black faux leather quilted puffer jacket.

4. Beach attire

No frills for this actor! DiCaprio sticks to a basic tee paired with knee-length board shorts in a simple pattern. The Cova Windswell board shorts or the RVCA Register Noise board shorts are both perfect examples of incorporating a simple design without being too flashy. Pair your shorts with either a plain white T-shirt or something in a very simple pattern. The Diesel graphic T-shirt in either black or white adds a bit of personality without being too flashy. Compliment this look with a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and a black baseball cap.
