Style Guide: How to Dress Like Shia LaBeouf | Man of Many

From his curly mop in Even Stevens through to a completely bald head, Shia LaBeouf’s locks have seen it all (including a mullet and a rat-tail).  Our favourite Shia haircut is his mid to late noughties Transformers-era short wavy hair. To emulate his look, opt for a haircut which is shorter on the sides and long on top, and style with a light mousse.

Get the Shia LaBeouf Hair

Shia LaBeouf sports a thick beard, balanced out with a crew cut. This style is fairly easy to replicate if you’re blessed with a fast growing beard; simply let your beard grow out for a couple of weeks to a month and trim with beard scissors to even it up.

Sport the Shia LaBeouf Beard

Since shedding his squeaky clean Disney image, Shia LaBeouf has been inked several times, with his most recent tattoo also being his most conspicuous; the word ‘CREEPER’ tattooed in capitals across his stomach. LaBeouf also has two tattoos of Missy Elliot – one on each knee – which he got in addition to ten others whilst filming American Honey, as well as a tattoo of Tupac on his thigh.

Shia LaBeouf Tattoos

The majority of Shia LaBeouf style appreciation is a below the calf activity, with the actor injecting interest into his predominantly normcore outfits through his choice of footwear. Case in point; this thoroughly dad-dropping-his-kids-off-at-soccer-practice look of cut-off tan khaki shorts, a plain white sweatshirt, teamed with aqua blue crocs.

Add a Pop of Colour through Statement Footwear

Rather than a traditional choice like cufflinks, Shia LaBeouf chose to pair his tux with a different type of accessory for the 64th Berlin International Film Festival. A year after he was accused of plagiarizing graphic novelist Daniel Clowes’, LaBeouf showed up to the premiere of his movie Nymphomaniac in 2014, wearing a paper bag with the words ‘I’m not famous anymore’ scrawled across it.

Grocery Store Couture

Many of Shia LaBeouf’s looks toe the line of being almost ok, with a singular element which throws it off and makes it uniquely LaBeouf. For example; scrunched up calf length sweatpants teamed with a white t-shirt, and a trucker hat. The look is offset by the actor’s choice of footwear; every hungover American sorority girl’s shoe of choice – ugg boots.

Experiment with the Dad Look

A broken foot isn’t enough to hold LaBeouf back. In classic Shia LaBeouf fashion, the actor sported a boot cast to the premiere of his movie The Company You Keep in 2013. LaBeouf told David Letterman how he acquired the injury, saying “I wish I could say it was wrestling tigers, but I was jumping rope.”
