How Dwayne Johnson Sharpened His Style From Baggy Suits to Tailored Tuxedos and Sleek Shoes Over The Years

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s claim to fame was his beginnings in WWE wrestling. The athlete-turned-actor is now a fixture at movie premieres and red carpet events. Johnson has a suave sense of style and can be spotted wearing tailored suits and fitted collared shirts, all complete with sleek shoes. The actor isn’t afraid of colors or prints as he has experimented with florals and metallics over the years. Johnson’s fashion silhouettes have evolved from the baggy 2000s trend to classically tailored in more recent years.
