If the standard suit and tie isn’t your thing, then read on for some unconventional styling tips à la Grammys red carpet; from Chance the Rapper’s sporting details to Jason Derulo’s epic outerwear.
TRY A TUX WITH A TWIST
Need to wear a tux but want to break the rules? Take style cues from Brendan Urie with a sleek black shirt to accompany your two piece, ditching the bow tie in favour of contrast piping along the lapels.
It’s no secret velvet has been pretty much everywhere this season and what better way to experiment with the fabric than for a special occasion. Mismatch your trousers and jacket like Ryan Seacrest, and forget the tie for a laidback feel.
STICK A BOW ON THAT
When the bog standard tie just won’t do, make like Lil Yachty with an oversized bow and finish with sockless shoes. Rules are made to be broken, right?
ADD A SPORTING NOD
Congrats to Chance the Rapper who won three awards on Sunday; despite not being signed to any label, or selling any physical copies of his records. There was something very baseball-esque about his ensemble but we liked it- Take your classic grey suit and chuck on a cap, finishing with two tone brogues for a sporting feel.
OR DITCH THE SHIRT...
If you’re really feeling wild you could take a page out of Desiigner’s book and just ditch the shirt completely..
Prints will be making a big comeback this season, and it’s not just with your casualwear. MeLo-X made camo look super sleek with his patterned ensemble, complete with black shirt and bandana.
BRING IN THOSE HARDWEARING ELEMENTS
Can’t been seen without your favourite leather jacket? Nick Jonas is showing us how to rock those hardwearing elements come party time with his biker jacket and skinny jeans pairing. Make the jacket a statement and add desert boots and a black tee to keep the rest low key.
MAKE IT ABOUT THE COAT
It doesn’t always have to be about the suit as demonstrated by Jason Derulo, who oozed cool on the red carpet on Sunday. Keeping things classic with a black tux, he finished off his look with a fur collared coat worn on the shoulders.
OR JUST, YOU KNOW, PAINT YOURSELF GOLD
Because the extrovert in you is saying painting yourself gold is definitely the right decision…
