From velvet jackets to double-breasted suits, the Oscars red carpet this year was unusually peppered in tried-and-tested tuxes and some alternative display of distinctive fashion. So, whether you nestle in the basics or push boundaries-there’s everything for everyone! All you got to do is pay attention. Here are the best looks this year:
Sunglasses At The Red Carpet
The Get Out actor, Caleb Landry Jones Oscars 2018 look was pretty intense (and we mean that in the best possible way). Donning an impeccably well cut black shawl collar Saint Laurent suit with the classic slick-back hair do, Jones brought the house down as he strutted down the red carpet. The entire ensemble with the pair of black sunglasses just went to the top of our best dressed list.
Double The Buttons, Double The Fun
DB suits are cool. They’re classic and masculine. And when you get today’s slimmer versions, you’re guaranteed a spot in our best dressed list. Take your cue from Tom Holland.
From stealing the show in a shrunken suit at the Critics Choice Awards 2018 to nailing the Oscars red carpet this year, Timothee Hal Chalamet is certainly the guy to watch. He looked swanky in an all-white Berluti suit, that’s cleverly paired with black Chelsea boots and cropped pants. It’s a fashion-forward look, we reckon, that only Chalamet can pull it off.
The men are obsessed with velvet this year. And we’re not complaining. Giving the basic black tux a miss, Armie Hammer, opted for a deep burgundy velvet number that’s tastefully paired with a white shirt and a black bow tie. This is exactly how you balance a rich fabric like velvet, without going OTT.
Risk It All
English actor Daniel Kaluuya took the road less travelled. Looking every inch the dapper man in an orange-y brown dinner jacket, he effortlessly pulled off multiple shades without getting burnt. The look was daring, on point and above all, relevant. Now, that’s how you push boundaries.
Lakeith Stanfield is changing the world in an Ermenegildo Zegna sustainable silk suit at the Oscars this year. Sustainable fashion is the need of the hour and we are in favor of changing the world one outfit at a time. Now apart from the fashion-with-a-cause gesture, Stanfield’s eco-friendly slick blue tux, contrast black lapels and the surprise lapel pin; make up for a memorable well-put-together look that shall be etched in the minds of many for long.
