Rio Ferdinand: How To Dress 101

This is a post for the fellas just as much as it is for the ladies. So put down your PS3/Xbox controllers and pay attention, lads.

Above is Rio Ferdinand, he of England captaincy, Manchester United defending personage, abs. Rio also has a number of side hustles, one of which is his footwear and accessories line, Five by Rio Ferdinand. He headed over to Selfridges in Manchester last night to help launch the new collection.

Real Talk: This man is a bad-ass clothes horse. While we do not know whether or not Rio works with a stylist, it still takes a hell of a man to wear a navy suit with a magenta jumper, rolled up trousers, a pocket square and a cognac-coloured leather belt and shoes. Be still our hearts. This was our fashion geek out moment, Kickettes.

Real Talk to Men That Wear Clothes: It is seriously sexy when you know how to dress yourselves without having to be told.  Possessing this skill will make women want to sleep with you. Dress like Rio. Bring condoms. Have a nice night.

    The man is completely unattractive to me, but his dress sense is usually top notch. I don't know what happened here. This whole thing is just horrid. The belt, the sweater, the shoes…ugh. And the jacket makes his shoulders look tiny. Just…no.

    The belt doesn't go with the shoes. Fail.

    Great comment , kaya, that grisly twisted mouth -yuk. Plus the wild staring eyes tho the hair style has improved since his younger days.

    Rio has the bod and the fashion sense, but srsly, that face provides far more protection than any condom…

    Is it me or he always has that scared look in pictures? LoL

    Not a Rio's fan…but I like his style is obviously, surely, absolutely elegant!! So chic…

    If my man had Rio's body, I would totally make him dress like that and yes we would

    "Dress like Rio. Bring condoms. Have a nice night."

    Love the new slogan, does Rio know he has one yet LOL

    I am sorry, I just don't see it?! Maybe it's that it Rio, or that I am not a fan of v-necks, but I just don't see it?!! Maybe put Stevie in this(nah can't see him in it either), or switch up the shoes/belt combo. Well to each her own I suppose!

    God, Rio. What a sexy, sexy sharp dressed man, haha. A+

    Is the jumper really magenta? It looks like fine navy and red stripes to me. Magenta would definitely be awesome too, though.

    Personally, I think the belt is what ties it all together- what separates the average man from the stylin' man… the belt takes a chance and the color is goregous… and I should also admit I have a problem with personification… just sayin' :)

    He's got style and is totally hilarious on twitter!

  12. LoseThatGirl says:

    Maybe Rio wants our eyes to zoom in on that belt-area? Just sayin'!

  13. manuela says:

    Yes, I agree with you! This sweather and belt are not the best combination! But the rest is quite refreshing for Rio! He's making progress!

    Rio should make this the slogan for his brand.

    I'm down with everything but the belt. It just seems to clash a bit with the jumper. But the overall look is verra nice!
