20 of the Best Dressed Footballers That You Should Be Following

From social media, to promotional appearances to summer breaks, we live in an era where footballers lives are more documented and followed than ever before.

Here we pick out 20 of the most stylish footballers on Instagram throughout 2018. Some you'll be following already and some you should be...

A post shared by Sergio Ramos (@sergioramos) on

Sergio Ramos – The Spanish captain gets more stylish each year as he embraces his thirties with a more sophisticated and subtle wardrobe. The smartest man at parents evening these days.

A post shared by Serge Gnabry (@sergegnabry) on

Serge Gnabry – Casual streetwear to smart and suited. Serge Gnabry is leading a next-generation of style conscious footballers onto the scene. Players who were born and raised into a social media world – the sort of players that ex-pros think are distracted because they dress well...

Hector Bellerin – The Arsenal full back is probably the most recognised footballer when it comes to Premier League fashion. He's curated his own style of fashion meets streetwear and for every negative comment that appears on his feed comes another shrug and laugh from Bellerin.

Timothy Weah – Not many footballers can pull off a high-end fashion shoot with Hypebeast but PSG's Tim Weah naturally styled it out. Another member of the next-generation who sits firmly in the new school of 2018's best dressed.

A post shared by Leon Bailey ⚽️✞ (@leonbailey_9) on

Leon Bailey – Born in Jamaica and tearing up in the Bundesliga as Bayer Leverkusen's number nine, Leon Bailey is one to watch on and off the pitch in 2019.

Tom Davies – The Everton midfielder has found his own trends off the pitch with a laid back style. Breaking the mold of how footballers are perceived Davies has an unconventional off-pitch vibe that matches his socks-down-shirt-untucked style on it.

Baby got some some new wheels 🏎🚶🏽‍♂️

A post shared by Gregory van der Wiel (@gregoryvanderwiel) on

Gregory van der Wiel – One of the most consistently fashionable players in football. Whether he's turning up to his MLS games for Toronto wearing old-school Man United shirts or chilling at home with his kids. The Dutchman is one of those guys who can pull off anything and always hits that sweetspot of dressing just that little bit better than everyone else, in any situation.

Memphis Depay – You might not be into his rapping but there's no denying that Memphis Depay is one of the most style-conscious footballers in the game right now. His looks are out there, but it's a vibe he's owning with unrivalled confidence.

Happy Sunday ✌🏼

A post shared by Ilkay Gündogan (@ilkayguendogan) on

Ilkay Gündogan – Another sophisticated dresser from the same class as Señor Ramos. Ilkay Gündogan stands out by blending in. Nothing too statement, just smart style and fluid outfits.

A post shared by David Alaba (@da_27) on

David Alaba – The Bayern Munich man never gets it wrong. Whereas other players can force it and fall into the tacky trap Alaba always executes his look with thoughtful sharpness. He's that one mate you ask for style tips.

Just do it!

A post shared by Keisuke Honda (@keisukehonda) on

Keisuke Honda – Japan's poster boy has lived in Moscow, Milan, Melbourne, Mexico and plenty of other places that don't begin with 'M'. He's well travelled through many different cultures which has no doubt influenced how he see's fashion.

Kevin Trapp – Hanging out at Paris Fashion Week with Neymar and David Beckham. That's enough to make Kevin Trapp the most stylish goalkeeper of all time in our book. Even more on trend than Gábor Király's Matalan tracksuit bottoms.

A post shared by Alexander Iwobi (@alexanderiwobi) on

Alex Iwobi – When you're mates with Hector Bellerin you're bound to pick a few things up, but Alex Iwobi has his own style. Another youngster with keen eye for modern streetwear, enhanced by thinking about that 2018 Nike Naija collection every time we see him.

Rurik Gislason – He's the guy that your girlfriend, wife, mother and brother fell in love with during the World Cup. After Iceland's game against Argentina in Russia Rurik's Instagram profile went viral, and his followers increased by 250,000 after the game. He's now got one million followers, more than triple the size of Iceland's current population. Christ, is he handsome. Dresses well too. Course he does.

A post shared by Divock (@divockorigi) on

Divock Origi – We already know Divock Origi is a man of fashion. When the Liverpool forward isn't scoring last minute derby winners he's adding to one of the Premier LEague's most stylish wardrobes.

Twenty of the best right there. Plenty more well worthy of a spot...
