Pete Davidson is known for his manic personality, his hilarious — and often dark — humor, and his writing and acting credits on Saturday Night Live. However, part of Davidson’s notability in the industry comes from his style — mainly street style.
It is a bit limiting to say his style is strictly street-style, but be it on SNL or hanging out with friends, Davidson can typically be found in high-end crewnecks, hoodies, long sleeved shirts, T-shirts, and lots of darker, baggy pants. His accessory arsenal includes beanies, chain necklaces, baseball caps, and, as Ariana Grande says in “in my head”, Gucci tennis shoes. Davidson’s usual style accent is his adornment with many tattoos reflecting life experiences and random decisions. However, his over 100 tattoos will be gone soon in what will be a two year process, Davidson announced.
The Staten Island native’s career took off when he joined the cast of SNL in 2014 for the show’s 40th season premiere. Appearing in Comedy Central Roast events and earning a spot on the Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2016, Davidson also brings his charm and loveable, funny energy to several large film projects, including The Suicide Squad, Set It Up, and Big Time Adolescence. He has also had many opportunities to show off his serious acting chops, including the Motley Crue biopic The Dirt, his own pseudo biopicThe King of Staten Island, and the upcoming Netflix biopic I Slept With Joey Ramone, where he will play the titular character.
It is no secret that Davidson does not stay still for long. Be it taking on new projects or switching up his style, the great thing about being a Pete Davidson fan is his constant ability to surprise people. Though he tends to stay in his street-style aesthetic, he sometimes will switch it out for a more early 2000s androgynous-chic — especially when it comes to interviews.
One thing is for sure: Davidson’s fans definitely are well-fed with his style and career choices. It is always exciting to see what Davidson will wear and do next.
