Adam Sandler Named 'Style Icon Of 2021' By Vogue

Adam Sandler is best known for making the best bad films you've ever seen.

But while he's made a career of playing divisive off-the-wall characters, his dress sense has seen him receive heaps of praise now.

Usually seen in a pair of jazzy basketball shorts, sneakers and a hoodie, Sandler's simple approach to fashion has impressed the experts out there.

The good folks over at Vogue magazine have even gone as far as to brand the actor the 'style icon' of 2021.

Reporter Liana Satenstein wrote: "If there was a fashion zodiac for 2021, it would be the year of the schlub.

"The proof is in the Google trend results: Adam Sandler beat out Harry Styles, Lizzo, and Britney Spears to be the top search for celebrity style.

"I’m not completely surprised that Sandler has achieved this accolade. He’s the unofficial ambassador of pandemic style.

"The past 18 months have been dominated by all-things cushy: sweatpants and sweatshirts. Sandler has long encapsulated this look.

"Search 'Adam Sandler style' and the results show a dude who looks like he’s made an imprint on his La-Z-Boy.

"The actor wears huge blooming basketball shorts, oversized polos, and untied basketball shoes—a low-key grocery-run look that everyone has more or less adopted in their own way over the past several months."

And Satenstein says his own unique sense of style has influenced bona fide designers.

She explained: "When Uncut Gems was released in December 2019, we became very well acquainted with the actor’s ridiculous humongous shorts and bloated knee-skimming T-shirts.

"Designers have taken notice as well. The downtown-beloved label Praying, known for its perverse irony, has used Sandler as one of its promotional images. The brand photoshopped the actor in full Praying gear, holding its Twilight-fan shoulder bag. "

Sandler has enjoyed the attention his fashion sense has got him.

He even collaborated with the brand Old Jewish Men, releasing a pair of 'Sandler Shorts'.

Speaking about the release, the brand's creative director said he had a lot of respect for the Happy Gilmore star.

Bryan Seversky said at the time: "Wear the shorts around the house, to the court, or to your nephew’s bris.

"He dresses for comfort and is unapologetic about it. And there’s something refreshing and genuine about this attitude."
