Actually, GQ Magazine – fashion icon Eddie Redmayne did indeed wear sweats in a previous, less stylish life. And he made them look damned good.
From GQ “10 Ways Eddie Redmayne Looks Dressed Up (Even When He’s Dressed Down”:
“While other Oscar winners run around town in sweatpants, we can’t remember ever seeing this actor don the cozy trouser alternative of choice. And it’s probably because there’s not another garment that’s so diametrically opposed to his modern gentleman aesthetic.”
This is my spin on the ever so fantastic Canadian Tuxedo aka jean on jean. I wanted to showcase the classic Roots World Famous Crew and make it something that you could wear out for a night out on the town.
I paired it with a pencil jean skirt and tucked the sweater in at the band only (to avoid too much bulging) and topped it with a jean vest instead of your typical jean jacket, creating difference and a not so typical look. Then for the toppers to complete the look, I decided I needed some fun textures - so I added a chunky toque and a statement necklace! BAM! That simple!
