Matthew Mcconaughey believes fashion is like food.

The 'Magic Mike' actor enjoys keeping his own style simple and compares it to the presentation of food.

He said: ''It's almost like food. You have to have the product but you also have to have the presentation. You've eaten at restaurants where the presentation is there but the food isn't. The two have to fit and feel like they're a pair.

''I do like to keep [my style] somewhat simple. I like fashion. I'm interested in it. But I would say this: You see some people with fashion and they try too hard and the clothes look like an accoutrement on them. The body, The Movement and The Fashion don't seem to be one.''

The 42-year-old star was at the 'Nylon Guys' September cover party in Santa Monica, California with his wife Camilla Alves - who is expecting their third child - and he revealed despite his causal style he still enjoys dressing up for showbiz events.

He told People magazine: ''I have times where I like to just wear my flip-flops, shorts and a T-shirt and hang out. Hang up the pair of shorts and wear them the next day.

''There are other times when I go to events or New York or Los Angeles and like [dressing] up.''
