Winter is most definitely coming… And one man who will be sure to look dashing during those cold months is Kit Harington. Born Christopher Catesby Harington, it’s easy to understand why Kit Harington changed his name to the latter. It’s more badass and cuts the air like a knife when said quick and sharp. The rebel actor is best for his heroic antics as Jon Snow – Lord Commander in the hit television series ‘Game of Thrones’.
In real life and without the war armour on, Harington’s style is played-down casual. He favours skinny jeans, sometimes with a turn up to give an ankle boot some airtime. It’s a winner, but if you want to go more casual still, try a pair of classic Converse.
CONVERSE BLACK MONO CT AS HI TRAINERS – £54.95
Known for his laid-back approach to style he is the poster boy for the casual look, wearing simple tees with denim jackets and jeans, nothing crazy or too out there, just simplistic style that any man can wear. A pair of skinny black Levis will be spot on to emulate this look, roll them up and wear a pair of black Chelsea boots. Throw on a simple tee and a black denim jacket and you’ll be channelling Kit in no time.
LEVI’S BLACK 519 ROOFTOP EXTREME SKINNY FIT JEANS – £67.95
When it comes to the red carpet Harington retains his casual style, often leaving the tie at home and keeping a shirt button or two undone. However, keeping the casual feel in mind you can always wear a jumper with a pair of smart trousers. This a Farah shirt would work perfectly with a pair of grey trousers teamed with some desert boots. A perfect smart-casual look for all those red carpet events you attend.
FARAH VINTAGE WHITE BREWER LONGSLEEVED SLIM FIT GRANDAD SHIRT – £64.95
The main thing to keep in mind with Harington’s style is that he always keeps it clean. Very few, if any at all, logos adorn his clothing and he layers colours well. Oh, and, of course, that hair. It’s rock-n-roll-meets-hipster in the best possible way.
Grooming-wise, keep it rough and ready. The idea is to take care of yourself without looking too polished. It’s a bit like current fashion trends where people pay big money to look homeless with ripped designer jeans, expensive creased jackets and ruffled hems. So, if possible, shaggy but silky hair and a groomed but scruffy beard would be the perfect finish.
