ESPYS 2016 Red Carpet Style

We look at the ESPYS 2016 Red Carpet for some style inspiration

What do we see on the ESPYS 2016 red carpet? We see people’s personal shine through. We see less of the traditional black tuxedo and more colours and patterns. It excites us because we like to see people push their boundaries and embrace new and different styles. We took a look and picked out a few of our favourite outfits from the ESPYS 2016 red carpet.

Take your tux game to the next level by going double breasted. Those embroidered slippers are just the cherry on top.

Coloured suits make a dapper statement. Paired that with a 3-piece suit? Top notch.

 The t-shirt and tux look is tough to pull off. But he keeps it laidback and cool with man and sneakers.

Sometimes you wear designer, sometimes you wear designer and bring the designer with you!

Our Favourite Looks of the Oscars 2016

It’s the day after the 88th Academy Awards aka the Oscars so of course we are going to talk about red carpet looks. There’s a lot of focus on what the women wear because let’s face it, there’s more variations. So we aren’t going to talk about who wore what best, we are going to highlight the guys that tried to be different and stand out. At Gotstyle, we always have an appreciation for someone who steps outside of their comfort zone or of the expected.

Leonardo Di Caprio

Okay we had a give a little shoutout to Leo for looking great in a classic black tuxedo and finally winning an Oscar. We know you’ve probably heard enough of it on every social media platform but we just had to. Even if he never won one, we all know in our hearts he’s an outstanding actor.

Eddie Redmayne

Black tuxes are the go-to for any gala events. It’s a given that most men will show up in one but we like Eddie Redmayne’s because he wore a velvet jacket with a peak lapel made of a contrast fabric. This is a good way to add character to a black tuxedo, especially if wearing colour isn’t your thing.

Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill’s outfit is another example of standing out when wearing a black tuxedo. He is wearing a velvet jacket with a shawl collar. We also like the black buttons on his tuxedo shirt and his white pocket square. In a sea of men wearing black tuxes, small details really do make a difference.

Finn Wittrock

It’s obvious why we like Finn’s outfit- it’s not black! The navy tuxedo with a contrast narrow lapel is a sleek look. He even went with a navy bow tie. We always appreciate a clean tonal style.

Jared Leto

Leave it to Jared Leto to take the black tuxedo to another level. It’s definitely an interesting look with the pops of red and the flower instead of a bow tie. If women are allowed to express their personality on the red carpet, men should be able to too.

John Legend

We are liking John Legend’s tuxedo with satin lapels. He’s looking dapper and honestly, sometimes a beautiful wife (Chrissy Teigen) in a beautiful gown is the best accessory!

Michael Strahan

We appreciate Michael Strahan’s tuxedo, for its colour and 3-piece style. The outfit isn’t perfect but we can’t knock the guy for trying. Kudos for stepping outside of the generic black tuxedo and turning heads.

Orlando Jones

Orlando definitely turned heads on the red carpet. The gold, copper and silver motif is classy but full of character. A printed jacket is an easy way to jazz up for a gala or black tie event.

Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest also shows us that a contrast jacket is the way to go. The grey stands out but is still neutral. Great for those gents who aren’t exactly willing to have their outfit scream “look at me!”.

Sylvester Stallone

We highlighted a navy tuxedo earlier but we also like how Sylvester Stallone wore his with a black bow tie and black shirt. This keeps his look a bit more minimal even though its coloured because there is less of a contrast. He looks dapper and sophisticated.

Common

We are really enjoying Common’s 3-piece suit. Its white with a shawl collar and the piece de resistance is the diamond star lapel pin. At something as glamorous as the Oscars, we really appreciate the men who acknowledge that and go above and beyond.

BEST DRESSED  MEN AT THE 2015 MET GALA

On Monday May 5, the social elite of the world descended upon the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual edition of the Met Gala, otherwise known as Anna Wintour’s party. The event which raised more than $12 million last year returned stronger than ever. This years theme was inspired by their feature exhibit “China: Through The Looking Glass” a reflection on Chinese aesthetic and it’s influences on Western fashion. An event typically dominated by women’s fashion surprisingly showed some resolve. The men inched their way in and did so with vigour. From couture hand embroidered jackets to gorgeous 3-piece brocade suits the men held their own on the red carpet and quite frankly outshone several of their female counterparts.

Here’s our list of best dressed men at the 2015 Met Gala.

Best-Dressed-Men-Grammys-2015

The Grammy’s, the worlds largest music award show took stage last night with some epic wins, losses and performances. From Annie Lennox taking us to church, Rihanna’s triumphant return to the charts, to Kanye pulling another Kanye there was no shortage of twitter worthy meme’s and highlights. Also worth mentioning was Sam Smith’s glorious clean-sweep and the incredible performance by John Legend and Common that closed the show. Speaking of Sam, the only thing better than his acceptance speeches were his outfit changes. The Grammy’s this year was the first time when the men, quite frankly, out-styled the women on the red carpet. From Pharrells’ 3M reflective Adidas suit to Nick Jonas’s sharp Versace grey plaid suit, the guys stepped up and out this year and we couldn’t be happier.

Here are our picks for Best Dressed Men at the Grammy’s.
