How To Dress Like Damon Albarn in the 90s

Damon Albarn in the 90s was the envy of all men and women. Men wanted to be him, and women wanted to be with him. Let's be honest, Damon Albarn had some of the best fashion sense of any pop star in the 1990s. Here is how you can recreate his signature looks.

1) Tracksuits and Track Wear

Damon Albarn's into sports and athleisure, as seen in his frequent forays into football during the 90s. He is often seen in his Adidas tracksuit sets and Adidas joggers. Adidas is probably Damon Albarn's go-to brand for sports wear. And boy does he look good in them. Damon and many other musicians of the 90s wears his soccer shorts and track clothing as casual clothes, pioneering the athleisure look that's so popular these days. 

Damon is often seen in matching sets which looks quite slick.

No 90s look is complete without a sports jacket. Damon Albarn seems to be wearing an early Adidas windbreaker in the photo above, which won't be available these days but you can find plenty of similar ones on Amazon. We think this lovely jacket is pretty close to Damon's one. Being a bit loose and scruffled, these sports jackets give off a relaxed vibe and can be worn with blue jeans and sneakers for the ultimate Damon Albarn look. 

3) Harrington Jacket

Nothing is more signature for Damon Albarn than a Harrington Jacket. They are slouchy, cool but fitted at the same time. He wears it out when he's drinking, partying or doing press interviews. Harrington Jackets come in a variety of styles and colors, but we think this Levis Harrington Jacket is the closest to what Damon Albarn wears. 

Damon always layers it over his polo shirts and blue jeans

4) Fred Perry Polo Shirts

Damon Albarn loves his Fred Perry polo shirts- whether they are striped, plain or just funky. If you're a Blur fan you would know that he has not stopped wearing Fred Perry ever since the 90s. In fact, he is sponsored by Fred Perry for many of his concerts. This is definitely one of Damon's favourite brands and styles, layered over a cool Harrington jacket


5) White sneakers

The classic white sneakers is a look that Damon Albarn will not stop wearing in the 1990s. He wears these Nike sneakers everyday (and these Adidas sneakers were also a 90s classic). Damon Albarn seems to like wearing sneakers with obvious logos which contrasts the white surface of the shoes. He has a huge sneaker collection, and these Puma dupes from Amazon are pretty similar too. 

6) Logo Sweaters

We all remember Damon Albarn's signature look from Beetlebum- his gray sweater with stripes was custom made but we have managed to find a similar one here. Tommy Hilfiger sells pretty similar 90s-styled sweaters that resembles Damon's look. These can be layered over jeans and sneakers for a relaxed and casual look. 

7) Logo T-shirts

If there's no logo on it, it's not a Damon Albarn-type of t-shirt. Known for his eclectic t-shirt collection, the musician is almost never seen without a funky logo t-shirt such as the British Rail T-shirt, 99p t-shirt, Bullseye T-shirt , Parklife t-shirt or the California 86 shirt when out. In fact, it's what makes his style so iconic. 

There are so many t-shirts out there, but slap a logo on it and you'll instantly look like Damon! 

8) Blue Loose Jeans

Loose jeans were the staple item in the wardrobe of any 90s kid. It was all the trend back then and Damon Albarn is no exception. He wears these Blue loose jeans everywhere to photoshoots and concerts. Classic 90s brands such as Levis does a great job at getting that slouchy, casual look that many 90s rock stars swear by.

Converse sneakers are the norm for Damon Albarn's style lookbook. He has been wearing these deliciously 90s shoes all the way into the 2000s and 2010s. Just take a look at him above, looking all fresh and preppy. Damon Albarn wears converse sneakers with rolled up blue jeans and black socks. The ankle look is very much trending right now. They come in different colors, but white seems to be Damon's favourite look (though he did delve into pink sneakers sometime in the 2000s). 

They look fantastic when paired with Blue loose jeans (the clothing, not the song).

Think Timberland, think Clarks. Think heavy, thick-soled and practical chelsea boots and you've got the very final touches of a Damon Albarn inspired look. Damon loves wearing chelsea boots, having named it one of his favourite shoes in an old interview. Chelsea boots are practical and screams 90s rock chic. 

As always, Damon loves pairing his boots with rolled up jeans and a casual jacket for a complete look. He is often seen in his signature red chelsea boots on stage. 

With these killer items in your wardrobe, you too can look and dress like Damon Albarn in his prime. Notwithstanding, Damon Albarn still dresses like he does in the 1990s today (if you have ever seen him around).
