Daniel Ricciardo is a fun-loving Australian F1 driver with a competitive edge. Though he’s extremely well-known in the circuit now, he began as an outsider to the world of racing and pushed his way in through talent and perseverance. He enters the 2020 season with Renault.
On his current team, his race attire places him in black and yellow, but off the track his closet gets a lot more colorful.
When he’s not sporting his curly locks, he’s wearing a baseball cap. To be fair, he seems to frequent sunny spots like L.A. and Australia; because of this, he’s no stranger to board shorts, colorful calf-high socks, vans, and a tee-shirt, but that doesn’t mean he never dresses up.
He seems to rely on denim as a staple in his wardrobe, regularly pairing a ripped pair of jeans with a graphic tee. But let’s not reduce him to a California frat boy’s closet. He’s also been featured in Men’s Style Australia and Esquire. I’ll admit that personally the Esquire shots are far more visually appealing to me, with fun prints, not shying away from placing him in baby pink, and more varied angles, but even in Men’s Style he looks sharp in a textured brown suit with vest and blue shirt.
Riccardio’s best accessory is his bright smile; the Aussie loves to have fun and laugh, as exemplifies by two-thirds of any photographs you can find of him. So ultimately, his approach to style seems to be a fun one and not always the most serious, but there’s absolutely something to be said for that perspective.
Especially when you race in such a high-pressure, high-reward sport such as F1, it’s refreshing to have someone like Ricciardo on the track, sporting some goofy socks and vans.
