Matt freely admits he no longer follows fashion, this is also apparent in his personal style. he once stated that he would be a fashion designer in a heartbeat!, he has always loved clothes. and over the past ten years he’s followed fashion trends less. he likes finding his tie-pins and pocket squares on eBay, and going into vintage shops and finding his ties and cufflinks, when he buys a new suit he likes to mix it with a vintage tie. he loves getting tuxedo’d up for his Vegas shows, they make Matt Goss look good. It inspires his music.

Matt does not just get his style influence from Frank Sinatra but also  David Bowie, and the Rolling stones who are famously fashionable, and known for their imitable style as much as their iconic music. Goss has quite the closet, preferring the classics, like his amazing Pal Zileri suits, Smythson wallet and David Beckham for H&M pieces, mixing in edgier pieces or shopping the men’s shoe collections from Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin.

Matt`s street style is very casual but truly chic

Matts over all style is sharp suited, dressed up with vintage accessories, when Matt dresses down  he likes to keep it simple but sharp, he loves to wear Christian Dior jeans for casual because there is not a lot of branding on those jeans. he’s not into big labels on the front of T-shirts, he prefers to keeping it simple with a classic white cotton t-shirt,  he loves crew neck jumpers with patches on the elbow.

To me Matt Goss style is very unique, to me it proves you get more stylish as you get older, I love Matts style very much he is a true style icon who knows how to dress very stylish with a touch of class.
