Let Chris Pine show you how to wear a blazer
Chris Pine is the quintessential Hollywood heartsmasher.
He's got a great CV, eyebrows that deserve their own V&A exhibition and a big, fat Tinsel Town net worth. None of which you can copy very easily. His wardrobe, however, is another matter.
During the Outlaw King premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, the 38-year-old flexed one of the oldest tricks in the book: texture. Which, in this case, looks like a burnt red blazer made memorable with a horizontal weave.
The benefits are twofold. Not only is it more interesting than standard red carpet fare, it's also an easy way to upgrade your suit (by which we mean making it look more expensive than it actually is). Providing you avoid estate agent shimmer fabrics, an alternative blazer up-top can add depth and contrast to tailoring.
To replicate, opt for a colour that's easy-to-wear: yes, lime green may pop, but you'll also risk looking like the entertainment crew at a Bajan all-inclusive. Darker tones are far easier.
