Who is 2021’s top fashion influencer?
The coveted title belongs to none other than Adam Sandler.
Sandler’s unique fashion sense has put him in the top spot on Google's 2021 top "celebrity outfits" list.
The 55-year-old was the top searched celebrity when it came to fashion, beating out the likes of Harry Styles and Britney Spears.
He also trumped other style icons, including Melania Trump, Cher, Doja Cat, and Lizzo.
While the aforementioned stars typically put a lot of stock into their outfits and gravitate toward designer brands, Sandler has ignored all fashion rules and embraced a more relaxed aesthetic.
The “Happy Gilmore” actor often goes viral for rocking basketball shorts with oversized and untucked shirts or polos. He tends to pair the go-to look with sneakers or high-rise socks. He’s also a huge fan of UGG boots.
Style expert Robert Verdi told The Post that the COVID-19 pandemic has played a crucial role in amplifying his look to the masses as it prioritizes comfort above everything else.
“In the wake of COVID we’ve all realized that materialism doesn’t matter,” he said, adding, “He’s representing what we all did during lockdown, which was staying in the same sweats for a week, not taking a shower every day and wearing old house shoes to walk the dog.”
He also said the public loves Sandler’s attire because it’s “authentic.”
That authentic look has already inspired the hashtag #Sandlercore on TikTok that features over 300,000 videos, according to FOX.
And it isn’t just everyday fans that are gunning to copy the comedian’s fit.
His carefree approach to fashion has even inspired other celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Jonah Hill, and Larry David, as part of a trend The Guardian dubs “slob-ebrities.”
Pete Davidson even reportedly named the comedian his favorite fashion icon in 2020.
FOX also notes that Sandler’s style is inspiring “spirit” day/week looks at schools.
Sandler’s disinterest in fashion has made him one of the most interesting fashion icons of the year.
