In this week’s top 5 suits, summery tones and fabrics predominate. A cream suit, a light gray suit, two shades of blue, and a brown, cotton suit all made a strong impression this week. There was some excellent color-coordinating going on, too.
Let’s take a closer look.
The most summery suit this week was probably Johnny Depp’s cream suit from the trailer of his new movie Mortdecai.
It’s not just the suit that earns top marks but the daring blend of colors: cream, pale yellow, teal and light blue. To top it all off, there’s a rather psychedelic pocket square. Based on this image, I’m definitely looking forward to the movie.
Another very summery outfit on this week’s list is the brown cotton suit worn by Will Arnett, who’s starring in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot.
You can tell he’s wearing cotton due to the way his garments wrinkle and drape. Extra points for the navy/brown complement.
Possibly my favourite outfit this week is the light gray suit worn by Kellan Lutz at the German premiere of The Expendables 3.
I don’t know what fabric he’s wearing, but it looks absolutely sumptuous with just the right amount of sheen.
I would have preferred it if he’d let the suit speak for itself by wearing a less showy shirt and tie – the suit is that good.
The last two suits on my list this week are both blue, the “couleur de jour,” you might say.
Daniel Radcliffe’s bright, navy suit at the What If premiere in London featured pick stitching on the lapels and was let down only by his refusal to wear a tie.
Despite the current vogue, in my opinion not everyone suits the tieless look.
Richard Armitage’s silk/wool Burberry suit at the Into the Storm premiere was an even lovelier blue – though the suit itself has, unfortunately, been criticized on one fashion site for being ill-fitting.
To see what they mean, check out the extra material in the legs and the short length of the sleeves.
Too light to be navy, the silk fibers give this suit a lovely iridescence. Not sure about that garish, horizontal stripe tie, but the shoes are beautiful.
That’s all till next week, folks. Keep your eyes peeled for the best celebrity suits.
