THE 2017 OSCARS SUIT TREND
By John Agnew, 28 February 2017
It was Flume who first taught us a few things about awards season suiting style, and now it's time to cast your eyes towards the 2017 Oscars. A host of Hollywood's finest actors are dropping some A-grade sartorial lessons – namely, rocking blue formalwear down the red carpet. A looser, louder alternative to your stock-standard black or navy 'fit; this look will help separate you from the pack. Here's how you can don the hue next time you need to suit up.
From jailhouse blues in TV series The Night Of to red-carpet-tux blues, Riz Ahmed (aka MC Riz) shows us how to don all-blue-everything – including a bow tie with matching smart shoes – in a classic cut. If you're an OG suiting kinda guy, go for this look.
Marvel at Chris Evans' formal co-ords game. A far cry from his patriotic (and predominantly blue) Captain America kit, Evans pared back his blue blazer with black finishing touches – check his lapels, bow tie and shoes. If you're not into sporting the colour head-to-toe, then this style is for you.
Ladies and gentlemen, presenting, The Rock – wearing a bold velvet blue blazer and consistently proving that guys with a bit of bark on their bones can look good in a suit, too. If you want to stand out, then this is your vibe. Rock on.
STYLE. GROOMING. INSPIRATION. ADVICE.
