In his commitment to this uniform, Bieber exemplifies a post-scumbro style that constitutes as dressed-up if your plans involve a night out at Nobu or a house party in the Hills. (Y’know, regular pop star shit.) Call it Calabasas Casual. It’s a formula he didn’t stray far from during his recent cover shoot for—shameless plug alert—this very magazine (neon yellow flight suit aside), and it’s high time we gave it the kudos it deserves.
Right now, Justin Bieber’s style embodies a laid-back West Coast cool as quintessentially Californian as buffalo cauliflower from Erewhon or dice-throwing TikTokers hamming it up for the cameras. And it’s never been easier to ape. All you need are a few of the pieces Bieber swears by—a sampling of which we conveniently rounded-up below—and the confidence to pull it off. Thankfully, you’re a GQ reader! You already have unimpeachable taste, and that should be all the confidence you need. Now go out there and dress like it. (Watch, chain, and many billions of Spotify streams sold separately.)
West Coast Crewnecks
Can you really call yourself a true-blue Californian if you don’t own a slouchy rotation of designer tees? Bieber wears ‘em more than almost anything else—that alone should be reason enough to cop a grip of your own.
As Bieber well knows, the easiest way to punch-up an otherwise monochromatic fit is to toss on a wild, eye-grabbing hat before you head out the door.
You don’t have to be comfortable performing in front of thousands to pull these kicks off.
Long gone are the days of Bieber showing up on red carpets in skintight Balmain denim. In an age of wild and wacky pants he’s a north star, and you could do far worse than taking your oversized trouser cues from him.
