Referring to their April 2011 cover athlete, gq.com says Derek Jeter will “always be best known as a leader, a champion, a class act.” That’s mostly because the Yankee captain and 11-time All-Star is such a great performer on the diamond. But Jeter also turns heads when it comes to style, and his apparel choices garner him recognition as one of the best dressed pro athletes.
Check out the casual pairing Jeter is sporting below. It’s suitable for touring a college campus or any occasion that calls for a preppy look.
Why it works: It’s youthful with a professional punch.
Jeter starts out with a strong shirt choice. Details.com asks, “What warm-weather garment is more essential than the polo shirt? The polo is a fresh and different—not to mention younger—option to layer with cardigans, pullovers and blazers.”
Jeter’s dark denim jeans look casual while conveying confidence and a take charge attitude. The jeans are versatile—dress them up with a blazer and loafers, and you’ll be ready to rock a more formal dress code.
White sneakers, a closet staple, are essential for pulling the look together. And the watch? A needed accessory for keeping track of a Mr. Popular’s schedule.
