Alexander Skarsgård pulls off 70s style like no other
None of us saw it coming, the big seventies thing.
In addition to flared trousers from Gucci and big swollen sofas and an steep incline in the number of curly-haired mops, menswear's appetite for all things retro is growing. And the throwback has Alexander Skarsgård firmly on its throne.
On another jaunt in Big Al's Time Machine, the Swedish actor doubled-down on the seventies redux, opting for sweet chocolate brown from Tom Ford at the New York premiere of Big Little Lies season two.
It isn't his first rodeo either.
And there's every reason for you to climb aboard, too. The merits of old school tailoring (like Skarsgård, opt for a peak lapelled two piece, a knitted tie, and some form of taupe shirting) are easily applied in 2019. Instead of bellbottoms, go for a wider fit throughout.
Rather than a big butterfly collar, think about a Cuban collar. Not everyone of the era dressed like they were dying of Saturday Night Fever. Neither should you.
Instead, know that Skarsgård is making seventies apparel cool again one subtle nod at a time.
