When it comes to fashion, Pete Davidson has become known for his retro and grungy style.

The “Saturday Night Live” comedian often wears colorful ensembles on and off the events circuit, cementing his style status with affordable pieces and playful tones. Davidson’s regularly worn multicolored athleisure from brands like Stay Cool, as well as sharp coats and puffer jackets from labels like The North Face. However, on the red carpet he typically wears collared shirts or tonal suits for a softer edge.

For footwear, Davidson frequently wears sneakers in a variety of colors, aesthetics and finishes. Tonal and neutral pairs from brands like Nike have become his go-tos on the red carpet. For casual events and outings, he usually wears low-top sneakers in all-white or colorful palettes from Adidas, New Balance and Saint Laurent for a sleek retro edge.

In April 2017, Davidson hit the red carpet with Cazzie David at the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Stand Up! event in Beverly Hills, Calif. For the occasion, the “King of Staten Island” star wore a navy and green color-blocked shirt with blue jeans, as well as gray high-top sneakers and a gold watch.
