On Glee, the 30-year-old actor plays fresh-faced high school quarterback Finn Hudson. Off-set, he keeps things a bit more sophisticated. Get a fashion education with Cory Monteith’s style rules.
Rule #1: Be Style Conscious, Not Obsessed
Instead of flash, Monteith gravitates toward fitted jeans, black V-neck cardigans, and a favorite pair of John Varvatos boots. His style icon is Johnny Depp. “He likes a lot of classic elements, but the way he pulls them together is effortless.” John Varvatos boots | $270
Rule #2: Back to Basics
When it comes to skin care, Monteith opts for minimalism. His go-to product is Kiehl’s Facial Fuel with SPF moisturizer. “I keep some in my gym bag and in my bathroom at home,” he says. His soap of choice is Cor Silver. “It’s an all-natural cleanser that’s great for all skin types.” Cor Silver soap | $38
Rule #3: Less is More
● Rather than being weighed down with bulky accessories or overdone cologne, Monteith’s only essential jewelry is a basic leather bracelet. “For cologne, I like Clinique Chemistry. It’s subtle and works well in many different settings.” Clinique Chemistry | $45
