Spotlight: Ansel Elgort

Ansel Elgort

I’m willing to bet big money that you had not heard of Ansel Elgort a year ago. In fact, he hadn’t starred in anything before 2013. But his name is hard to avoid now, having starred along side Shailene Woodley in both The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent in the last year. This 20 year-old is on his way up.

His youth and rising star make him the perfect style guide to watch. Generally his look is crisp and simple, which makes it easier to imitate and also a perfect canvas to experiment on with interesting pieces.

Crisp and simple

However, Mr. Elgort also isn’t afraid to try some unconventional looks. One thing you can see in a lot of his looks is color blocking. You can mix more colors or shades of a color when they are crisply divided. It is also a very trendy look at the moment. Shoes are an easy way to embrace this trend.

Since Ansel is a pretty tall guy he can wear a lot of color and not have it overwhelm him, especially when it is paired with more neutral colors. Also by choosing a full, solid suit in a bright color, that color becomes more of neutral for that outfit.

Colorful Ansel

Ansel is pretty young and hasn’t played around with too much in the realm of facial hair, but his figured out a hairstyle that adapts with his look. By choosing a length that can be worn down and natural or with product and shaping allows easy versatility.

Ansel Elgort is one to watch. He demonstrated his talent in the impressive TFIOS and is lined up to continue the blockbuster Divergent series, so he isn’t going anywhere soon.
