Watch the show, then bite this style.
If January’s relentless cold has you feeling like staying in every night, the silver lining is that there is plenty of irresistible TV to consume right now—like the The Bachelor, Black Mirror, and soon enough, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. The cast attended the premiere of the show in Los Angeles yesterday and while none actually wore Versace (the family doesn’t approve), they certainly nodded in that direction with their clothes. Penelope Cruz wore a red velvet number by Stella McCartney that was very high on drama, and the men? Well, they brought just as much going-out flavor to the table. But it worked. Really well, in fact. It’s almost enough to make you want to start going out again. Almost. Here’s what they wore and why we liked it.
Edgar Ramirez and Finn Wittrock doubled down on deep, dark, slightly mysterious color, and wisely kept their accessories to a minimum. And they did this in two different, equally sound ways. Ramirez stuck with one color, varying up the hues in his tie and shoes so nothing felt too matchy-matchy. Wittrock, meanwhile, mixed two almost-black tones for the slickest spin on color-blocking ever.
Don’t have the cash for a burgundy suit, or the…gravitas to pull off a black turtleneck? Allow Harris Dickinson (who isn’t in the show but is a style up-and-comer we’ve had our eye on) and Ricky Martin (definitely in the show) to present a third option for looking fly on your next night out: adding some beach-weight fabric to your look. If you’re under 35 make it a breezy printed shirt like Dickinson, if you’re over 45 make it a sophisticated evening scarf like Martin.
