The Three Best Dressed Male News Anchors
Anyone who watches the news regularly has probably noticed that some male anchors are better dressed than others. While there are plenty of men in news who don’t necessarily dress to impress, the industry is rife with well-dressed men who know that they need to look good if they intend to step in front of a camera every day. The following are three of the best-dressed male news anchors on television, all of whom know what they’re doing when it comes to throwing together an attractive ensemble.
#1: Stephen Colbert
It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is one of the most recognized news personalities on television. In fact, surveys have shown that many people in their teens and twenties get their news from satire-based shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, rather than investigative media. While his brand of the news may be satirical, the style that he embodies is that of a well put-together southern gentleman, and is perfect for his act. Colbert’s style is characterized by classy, yet conservative suits; he seems to favor Brooks Brothers above all else. Colbert also tends to wear “American” colors; think bold red tie over a crisp white dress shirt, rounded off by a deep navy blue suit jacket. Besides solids, Colbert is a big fan of fine pin striped suits, and striped ties. Stephen Colbert’s trademark pair of rimless wire-framed glasses serve as the perfect accessory for tying his appearance together.
#2: Brian Williams
Host of the NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams is one of televisions most watched news personalities, and has the looks to back it up. Williams appearance is sharp, elegant and exudes confidence; three things that any news anchor can benefit from. Williams himself is certainly a fashion-forward guy, although he makes a point to dress in a way that might not alienate the general public; his appearance is sleek, while remaining somewhat effortless and low-key. While Brian Williams tends to wear similar ensembles to other anchors (navy blue suits, white shirts), he stands apart by choosing flat-front trousers over those with pleats. Williams has even spoken out publicly on this, predicting that pleats will soon become a thing of the past in the fashion community. Finished off with bright-colored striped neckties (orange, grey, and purple are his favorite), Williams appearance is perfectly tailored to the world of television news.
#3: Anderson Cooper
CNN’s Anderson Cooper is perhaps the most well-known news anchor on television, and he dresses the part better than most. Commonly called “The Silver Fox,” Anderson has the looks it takes to turn heads and attract an audience. Anderson Cooper never steps in front of the camera without looking his best, and takes pride in delivering the news with style. Cooper’s look is characterized by his extremely neat, sophisticated haircut; his silver hair serves as the perfect accent to the ensembles he puts together. Anderson Cooper prefers Ralph Lauren suits, and tends to wear black more often than most other anchors. The contrast provided by his commonly worn bright blue ties and crisp white dress shirts are more than enough to help him attract attention without looking like he’s trying too hard.
