In the most recent adaptation of Peter Parker/Spiderman, the classically nerdy character got a major upgrade. Instead of being the classic, stereotypical nerd, the current Peter Parker is more of an outcast and shy, but smart teenager (I connected a lot more with this Peter than the previous interpretations). Peter wears a lot of dark skinny jeans, dark t-shirts in vintage prints (I cheered over the Ramones shirt in photo 4), hoodies, and a basic jacket. Peter doesn’t have a sense of vanity about himself, and thus looks casual and somewhat dishevelled. While I typically prefer men in suits and modern/edgy prep (like Andrew Garfield’s style), I did like Peter’s style. While he had larger shirts and a large jacket, he emphasised his lanky frame through the skinny jeans. I also enjoyed the artistically vintage style he had, such as in his shirts and glasses. If you want to emulate Peter’s style, then be comfortable with the notion of wearing skinny jeans and dark colors. Peter emphasised his lanky frame through tight pants and follow that aesthetic if you have the same body type– if you are rounder in your bottom half, then avoid skinny jeans and instead go for a straight cut to elongate you. Simply emphasise the leanest part of your body and dress in a vintage, slightly “hipster” style. Stores that have Peter’s style include Journeys, Vans, Urban Outfitters, Hot Topic, and American Eagle.
What do you think of Peter Parker’s style? And what do you think of this interpretation of Peter/Spiderman in The Amazing Spiderman?
