Long before Zanjoe Marudo bagged the most coveted "Best Dressed" award in this year's Star Magic Ball, he was already known for his impeccable style both on TV and off-duty when he isn't taping. From the type of clothes he dons to the way he carries them, the The Third Party star brings an effortless coolness with him wherever he goes.
The good news: The ABS-CBN actor's look isn't hard to recreate. Even better news: you can imitate his ultra-chill style for your next date with the bae or even for a boys' night out.
Dress Like Zanjoe Rule #1: Dress up your tank tops
These days, printed sandos are trendy. When wearing one, remember that you're already showing too much skin up top, so no one needs to see any more flesh down below. Pair those tanks with ripped jeans for a more rugged look or joggers for that athleisure vibe. Also, no slippers. You don't want to look like you're in your pambahay.
Dress Like Zanjoe Rule #2: Give your formal wear a casual feel
Wearing a suit and tie can sometimes be pretty boring. Pro-tip: Get out of your comfort zone and experiment. A simple cuffing of your slacks can reinvigorate the ensemble.
Dress Like Zanjoe Rule #3: Keep a pair of dark jeans in your closet
A pair of black jeans is one of the most veratile pieces a man can own. They can be paired with anything. Keep things basic and straightforward with neutral-colored shirts.
Dress Like Zanjoe Rule #4: Soar high like a pilot...
In aviators, that is. A modernized pair with funky-printed frames keeps things playful.
Dress Like Zanjoe Rule #5: Short board shorts go a long way
Don't be ashamed of short board shorts. It's normal to feel conscious at first, but pairs that are cut above the knee are more streamlined and less baggy. The secret: Wear them with confidence.
