Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been widely praised for “breaking boundaries” and “giving zero f***s” with a daring look on the front cover of a fashion magazine.
The 24-year-old Everton star donned a Prada outfit featuring a black blazer, white polka-dot shirt and black tie, along with a black flared suit shorts.
Calvert-Lewin’s outfit, which was designed by stylist Harry Lambert, is featured on the front cover of Homme Plus.
The England international shared the snap on his Instagram profile, with the photo quickly making the round on social media.

Some fans were quick to mistake Calvert-Lewin’s shorts for a ‘skirt,’ but others praised him for “expressing himself” and “breaking down gender norms.”
One Twitter user posted: “Dominic Calvert-Lewin. What boundaries? Just love the way this dude is.”
Someone else tweeted: “Calvert-Lewin can wear whatever the f**k he wants in my book, and anybody else for that matter. Why should it bother me or anyone?”
An Everton fan wrote: “More of an issue with one or two of our current squad wearing the shirt on a matchday than anything Dominic Calvert-Lewin chooses to wear in his own time, to be honest.”
And a fourth said: “Dominic Calvert-Lewin: Fashion icon, sexy b*****d, Evertonian...”

This country is just full of intrinsically, negative morons who can’t wait to give someone a bashing, if they happen to be a bit different to themselves.
So many footballers are dull, media-trained robots who are terrified to put their true personalities out there.— Matt Jones (@MattJFootball) November 9, 2021
Calvert-Lewin is the antithesis of that. I really don't get some of the anger at him for this.
He's got personality, he's a fantastic player and I'm here for it. #EFC https://t.co/NPDptTbAGP
All over Dominic Calvert-Lewin - his style, attitude & doing things his way.— Peter Guy (@Getintothis) November 9, 2021
But the best thing about DCL - he's proved people wrong with his actions on the pitch & continues to get better.
That's the most important part of his story. A very good player who's going to be great. pic.twitter.com/KBSmuGjzOD

While a fifth added: “Said it before. But absolutely fair play to Calvert-Lewin. In an era where we are encouraging people to be true to themself. Fair play to giving zero f***s.”
Calvert-Lewin hasn’t been shy to share his unique fashion sense with his followers on Instagram and during his appearance on Monday Night Football.
The Everton striker filled in for Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville in the studio, with the Manchester United legend approving of Calvert-Lewin’s fashion sense.
“Well done to [Calvert-Lewin] for going on MNF. Live TV, no script and for a current player to put themselves in that position takes some guts,” Neville tweeted.
Well done to @CalvertLewin14 for going on MNF. Live TV , no script and for a current player to put themselves in that position takes some guts. He’s speaking well and really relaxed. ( even though I’m sure he’s a bit nervous ) . Looks the part too. Hope more do it. 💙— Gary Neville (@GNev2) November 1, 2021
“He’s speaking well and really relaxed. (Even though I’m sure he’s a bit nervous.) Looks the part too. Hope more do it.”
Calvert-Lewin, who has been sidelined due to a broken toe, has spoken openly about his desire to dress the way he wants off the pitch.
“As a footballer, you’re so in a routine, and you do the same things every day,” he told The Face magazine.
“It’s that bit of freedom. If you want to wear a suit for no reason, why not?”
